SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Carolina Panthers announced that former BYU offensive lineman Brady Christensen signed his rookie contract with the NFL franchise.

Carolina announced Christensen’s signing on Thursday, June 24.

After an outstanding prep and college career at Bountiful High School and BYU, Christensen was selected by the Panthers during the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Christensen was the 12th offensive lineman taken in April’s draft.

Christensen signed with BYU in early 2015.

After his high school career, Christensen played for the Cougars from 2017-20.

Christensen had the chance to play as a freshman. That experience propelled him into becoming one of college football’s best offensive lineman.

He played in every game during his time at BYU, which amounted to 38 contests.

Christensen helped the Cougars to an 11-1 record in his final season in Provo.
