It didn't take long for Penn State defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos to hear his name called in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. With the sixth pick of the second round, Carolina head coach and former Nittany Lion Matt Rhule selected the stud edge rusher and Penn State twitter rejoiced.
Incredibly proud of Yetur & excited for his family! Carolina is getting a special young man!— James Franklin (@coachjfranklin) April 24, 2020
Head coach James Franklin will root for one Panthers team and one Panthers team only.

Micah Parsons is happy for his former teammate and potentially his future NFL teammate.e
Shaka Toney expressed his joy for his former linemate.
Gross-Matos' high school has a new notable alum.
Like many, Lamont Wade will miss YGM's presence, but of course, he is happy for the big man.

Roger Goddell fumbled his name and the Panthers Twitter account was quick to clown him.

Coach Wade sending his best.
Former defensive line coach Sean Spencer is now with the Giants, but Momma Chaos is still proud.
What a great moment for Gross-Matos and we wish him all the best as he chases down Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Matt Ryan.
