Rookie Panthers WR Devin Funchess blames his disappointing junior season at Michigan on a toe injury.
"We never got to see the full Devin Funchess at Michigan because I did play one season at wide receiver, and I was battling through an injury," Funchess said last week. "I think up here in the NFL I can make some damage." At 6-foot-4, 232 pounds, Funchess certainly has the size to be an NFL difference maker, but has questionable speed. He ran 4.70 at the Combine before improving at his Pro Day. As a Wolverine, Funchess didn't always fight for the ball in the air, and disappointed after the catch. He'll be a wild card opposite second-year pro Kelvin Benjamin.
