Panthers set to host Brenden Rice, Malachi Corley

Brenden Rice, son of NFL legend Jerry Rice, is making his mark on the NFL radar, with a TOP-30 visit scheduled with the Carolina Panthers on Tuesday, as confirmed by league sources to MLFootball.

Meanwhile, Western Kentucky star wideout Malachi Corley is also in the mix, currently in Charlotte for his TOP-30 visit with the Panthers slated for tomorrow.

Rice’s physicality on the field contrasts with Corley’s dynamic playmaking abilities, offering the Panthers diverse options for their offensive arsenal. Throughout his collegiate journey spanning USC and Colorado, Rice, who recently shared an advantage over his legendary father, has consistently delivered stellar performances. With 111 catches, 1,821 yards, and an impressive 21 touchdowns to his name, Rice’s senior year at USC saw him rack up 45 receptions, nearly 800 yards, and an impressive 12 touchdowns. 

On the other hand, Corley, the standout from the Hilltoppers, boasts an impressive 2,277 receiving yards over the previous two seasons, along with 22 touchdowns during that time frame.

Ranked as WR15 and WR16, respectively, on Sports Info Solutions’ big board for the NFL Draft, both Rice and Corley present enticing prospects for the Panthers as they seek to bolster their receiving corps.
