This marks the first draft pick signed by the Panthers since the draft concluded a week ago.
Gaffney was an interesting selection give that Carolina has plenty of running backs currently on their roster including: DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, Kenjon Barner and Mike Tolbert — although Tolbert primarily plays fullback.
Over the course of four years at Stanford, Gaffney rushed for 2,500 yards on 486 carries (5.1 YPC) and contributed 37 total touchdowns.
