Panthers reportedly have top-30 visit scheduled with Texas RB Jonathon Brooks

Could the Carolina Panthers be interested in spicing up their backfield?

According to Ryan Fowler of Bleacher Report, the team has a top-30 visit scheduled with University of Texas running back Jonathon Brooks.

The Hallettsville, Texas native spent three years in Austin—where he totaled 238 rushing attempts for 1,479 yards (6.2 yards per carry) and 16 touchdowns. He also reeled in 28 catches for 335 yards and two scores.

Brooks had his 2023 campaign cut short after sustaining an ACL tear in the Longhorns’ matchup against TCU on Nov. 11. Prior to the injury, he notched 1,139 rushing yards and 11 total touchdowns.

Vikings Wire editor Tyler Forness wrote the following of Brooks in his scouting report on the six-foot, 199-pound rusher earlier this month:

Has good vision in zone concepts. He sees his blocks developing in front of him and can hit the cutback lane with explosiveness and changes direction well.

Has the juice to take the edge and turn upfield with home run-capable speed. Shows quick burst through the hole and can accelerate while cutting back in zone concepts.

Keeps his legs moving when defenders make contact with him. Has the strength to move the pile and has 82 missed tackles forced on just 238 carries.

Brooks is currently projected as a Day 2 selection.
