CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -

The Panthers have selected Oregon running back Kenjon Barner with their sixth-round pick in the NFL draft.

Barring a trade, it's Carolina's last selection in this year's draft. They don't have a seventh round pick.

Barner hails from the same school as current Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart, a first-round pick out of from Oregon in 2008.

The 5-foot-9, 196-pound Barner ran for 1,767 yards as a senior, the second-highest total in school history and the tenth-highest in Pac-12 Conference annals. He scored 23 touchdowns last season, 21 of those on the ground.

In the 36 games prior to his senior season Barner amassed 3,825 all-purpose yards, averaging 9 yards per touch.

He joins a crowded backfield in Carolina that includes Stewart, DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert.
