Prospect No. 57: WR Anthony Schwartz

College: Auburn

Height: 6'0" Weight: 180 lbs

Draft range: 5th round

Analysis: If the Panthers want to continue to add to an already speedy wide receiving corps late in the draft, Anthony Schwartz will get some consideration. He's not a go-to target and I don't believe he will ever turn into a WR1 but he does have the ability to create space and shake loose in the open field. Screens, slants, five and ins are what Schwartz does best. He'll cut you up left and right underneath and occasionally hit for a home run ball down the field. 

Analysis from NFL Draft Bible on Sports Illustrated:

Schwartz’s game revolves around his world-class speed and acceleration. He is the ultimate space-eater; defensive backs are forced to respect him deep, allowing Schwartz to drop his hips smoothly and break off easy outs and hitches if given room. Auburn utilized Schwartz in a lot of jet sweeps and pop passes, which he showed to have no trouble winning the edge throughout his career. Predominantly used in the short game, Schwartz follows his blockers after the catch extremely well and takes what is given to him. He flashes plucky hands catching passes away from his body and does a great job tracking the ball on vertical routes
