CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)

The Panthers have selected safety D.J. Campbell from Cal with the 216th overall pick in the seventh round, their final selection in the NFL draft.

The 6-0, 205-pound Campbell played in 46 games with 14 starts - 13 of those as a senior - during his career and had 110 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions.

Campbell adds depth at an already crowded safety position.

Along with last year's starters Charles Godfrey and Sherrod Martin and top reserve Jordan Pugh, the team also signed unrestricted free agents Haruki Nakamura and Reggie Smith to come in and compete.

Coach Ron Rivera, who also played at Cal, says ''D.J. is one of these guys who is going to come in and give you something as far as the special teams is concerned.''
