The Carolina Panthers see multiple players in the running backs group who could fit what they want in the National Football League draft, general manager Dave Gettleman said Friday. He's going to elevate his brand and draft stock with his flawless use of Twitter.

McCaffrey is now projected as a first-round pick in next week's draft. When it comes to McCaffrey, the biggest question mark seems to be the 5-foot-11 back's ability to consistently run between the tackles as a three-down player in the NFL.

"To a certain degree we are a function of the college game, and they're playing a little different game now", Gettleman said.

On Friday, Carolina general manager Dave Gettleman said that while Fournette and McCaffrey each bring unique skill sets to the table, either would fit in the Panthers' offense.

Gettleman, along with assistant general manager Brandon Beane and director of player personnel Don Gregory, took the stage for the team's pre-draft presser on Friday afternoon.

Through their scouting process the team disproved the popular (and false) myth that McCaffrey can't be an every-down back in the NFL.

In this season's evaluations, it was clear Gettleman came away impressed by the running backs class, particularly Fournette and McCaffrey - despite the devaluing of running backs in recent drafts.

"Well, the last two years he's rushed the ball for 650 (carries) and he's caught another 90 balls". But with Stewart turning 30 last month, that probably won't keep the Panthers from selecting a running back in the draft.

The guys at SB Nation reported that should the Carolina Panthers opt to let McCaffrey pass at No. 8 overall draft selection, an unnamed organization is "currently picking in the teens" has guaranteed the Castle Rock, Colorado native that they will draft him. "There are 16 games you got to play them somehow, someway, somewhere".

Gettleman said that devaluation was about circumstance.
