DRAFT-PANTHERS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Carolina Panthers spent the NFL draft looking for a replacement for All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman.

The NFC champions used three of their five draft picks on cornerbacks after Norman signed a free agent contract with the Washington Redskins last week.

Carolina selected Louisiana Tech defensive tackle Vernon Butler with its first-round pick, then used its next three picks on cornerbacks -- James Bradberry from Samford in the second round, Daryl Worley from West Virginia in the third round, and Zack Sanchez from Oklahoma in the fifth round on Saturday.

The team closed out the draft by taking tight end Beau Sandland from Montana State in the seventh round with the second-to-last pick overall in the draft.

The decision to draft three cornerbacks means Carolina likely won't re-sign 35-year-old Charles Tillman, who started 12 games last season before suffering a second-ending knee injury.

Bene Benwikere, last year's nickel back, is penciled in to start at one starting cornerback spot but the other is open for competition.
