Running Back John Lovett Signs With Carolina Panthers As Undrafted Free Agent

Former Penn State football running back John Lovett has signed with the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted free agent.

Lovett adds to a plethora of Nittany Lions in Charlotte, joining Yetur Gross-Matos, Brandon Smith, and Drew Hartlaub. Additionally, Panthers head coach Matt Rhule is a Penn State letterman, as he played linebacker for the program back in the 1990s.

Lovett spent one season with Penn State after transferring to the program from Baylor right after the 2020 season. He played in eight games for the Nittany Lions and was part of a rotation at running back. Lovett totaled 52 carries for 177 yards while adding nine catches worth 36 yards in the passing game.

Prior to Penn State, Lovett spent four years with Baylor beginning in 2017. His best season came in 2019 when he totaled 655 rushing yards and five touchdowns for the Bears.

Lovett is one of several Nittany Lions to sign on with a team after the NFL Draft. Hartlaub, Derrick Tangelo, Ellis Brooks, Eric Wilson, and former Penn State players Irvin Charles and Antonio Valentino have all inked undrafted free agent contracts.
