The Carolina Panthers have announced the signing of a pair of sixth-round draft picks.
Ole Miss defensive end Greg Hardy (whom the Panthers chose with the 175th overall pick) and Texas A&M defensive back Jordan Pugh (taken 202nd overall) both signed today.
Hardy is a 6-foot-4, 277-pounder who either led the team or tied for the team lead in sacks in three of his four college seasons. Pugh was a three-year starter for the Aggies who can play both cornerback and safety.
The Panthers also announced the signing of rookie Robert McClain, which was reported on Tuesday but not officially announced.
Carolina signed sixth-round wide receiver David Gettis and seventh-round defensive back R.J. Stanford this week, meaning they have five of their ten draft picks under contract.
