    Panthers have added to their former AAF players collection by signing two more
    players from the now defunct league — tight ends Cole Hunt and Marcus Baugh have
    both signed with Carolina according to reports.Hunt was signed as an undrafted
    free agent by the Los Angeles Chargers in 2018 and was waived during the team’s
    final roster cut. He then signed with the San Antonio Commanders of the AAF and
    was there until the league folded. He played college football at Rice and
    TCU.Baugh was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Oakland Raiders in 2018
    and was waived during the team’s final roster cut. He then signed with the San
    Diego Fleet of the AAF and was there until the league folded. He played college
    football at Ohio State.This is strictly a depth move to get the Panthers’ roster
    to 90 players ahead of the upcoming organized team activities, and there’s a
    good chance that neither of these players will make it through training camp on
    the roster. However, there’s always a chance that one of them (or even both of
    them) could impress enough to earn a spot on the practice squad, so stay tuned.

    Juan ThornhillJasen Vinlove-USA TODAY SportsJuan Thornhill was a consensus
    three-star recruit who played his high school ball at Altavista High in
    Altavista, Va. Thornhill was a productive defensive back for Virginia during his
    four years in Charlottesville. He finished with 13 interceptions, 39 pass
    breakups, 12.5

    , and one forced fumble. He was named to the All ACC
    First team in 2018.Thornhill is one of the best athletes in the history of the
    NFL Draft. He posted a 2.6 sigma, which landed him in the 99.5th percentile
    according to SPARQ. Thornhill was a standout basketball player in high school
    too. Film reviewThere’s always going to be a question whenever a prospect posts
    elite athleticism scores at the Combine. For Thornhill, his athleticism shows up
    on the field too. He wasn’t isolated to any role on UVA’s defense. He played

    , deep safety, box safety, and dime linebacker. Thornhill is facing
    the slot receiver in man coverage. He gets physical, which disrupts the initial
    phase of the route. Then he’s able to stay within the hip of the receiver before
    he breaks perfectly for the interception. As a deep
    safety Blue

    , Thornhill demonstrated a keen understanding of
    route concepts. Most safeties are taught to protect the deep middle and this
    route concept has the outside receiver attacking the middle of the field.
    Thornhill abandons the deep middle once he realizes the stunt will affect the
    quarterback. He matches with crossing route and then shows his athleticism by
    making a play on the ball. Thornhill is the deep middle safety on this play. He
    proved that he can fluidly change direction within his backpedal to match any
    deep routes as he does here. It’s tough to find a safety who has the range to
    move directions so effortlessly. Thornhill also showed he can drop into a deep
    half shell. The throw was certainly off the mark, but he consistently exhibited
    that a plethora of zone coverage concepts.That’s not even the best part of the
    interception though. Check out this return. It’s almost like being a freak
    athlete helps on the field. Thornhill was a reliable run defender for the
    Cavaliers. There is a clear alley for the running back on each of these runs,
    but Thornhill prevents the run from being an explosive play with his tackling.
    Having a trustworthy safety who can tackle on the back end is a critical
    component for any defense.In addition, Thornhill proved that he is an efficient
    run defender when he’s coming downhill. he reads the action and then quickly
    sprints to make a form tackle. He beats the blocker to the
    spot Devin

    , which helps limit the gain.Thornhill was utilized
    as a blitzer off the edge too. He had a knack for taking good angles in the run
    and pass game. Fit with CarolinaI haven’t finalized my grades yet, but I have a
    hard time seeing 20 players better than Juan Thornhill. Do I expect him to get
    taken in the top 20? Probably not. However, the Panthers have been searching for
    a versatile safety who has range for years. His instincts are excellent and of
    course his athleticism is elite. Thornhill also had the production in a major
    conference. He is an easy projection and Carolina should strongly consider him
    with their first round pick.
