CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Panthers have signed first-round pick Christian McCaffrey and two other draft choices.

Terms of the deals weren't disclosed Thursday night.

McCaffrey, the versatile 5-foot-10, 202-pound running back who also played wide receiver and returned kicks, was the eighth overall pick. The former Stanford star broke Barry Sanders' single-season all-purpose yards record in 2015 by racking up 3,864 yards and was selected The Associated Press Player of the Year.

The Panthers also signed second-round pick Taylor Moton, an offensive tackle from Western Michigan, and sixth-round pick Alex Armah, a fullback from West Georgia. Moton is expected to compete for playing time at right tackle with veteran Michael Oher, who missed 13 games last season with a concussion.
