If you guys have been following voth this offseason he's been pretty spot on/correct with anything he's said so there could be a bit of stock in this.

@billvoth: PM RT: Think #Panthers are going OT at No. 28? Well ... http://t.co/HjxWdD07Mi

There’s three guys in this draft that can definitely play left tackle in the NFL: Auburn’s Greg Robinson, Texas A&M’s Jake Matthews and Michigan’s Taylor Lewan. The rest could be right tackles, but there’s no guarantees they could play left.

You don’t pick right tackles in the first round. And if Gettleman isn’t sure a guy at 28 can play left tackle, he’s not going to take him.

So here’s the second part — all that doesn’t necessarily mean the second nugget in Kiper’s update will happen.

 

Yes, receivers’ coach Ricky Proehl has been sent all around the country for a reason. The Panthers are turning over every wideout rock they can, not just because it’s a need, but because there’s a whole bunch of talent out there.

But once the Panthers are on the clock at 28, if someone at another position — say cornerback — is higher on Carolina’s board than a receiver, they’re going to take the one they believe gives them the best value.

 

Two weeks out from the draft, I can’t tell you who the Panthers are going to take. Shoot, considering all that could happen in front of them, they can’t be sure who they’re going to take.

But whether it’s Kouandjio, Virginia’s Morgan Moses or most other tackles currently mocked either late in the first round or the second, the point is a tackle sounds unlikely. The feeling I get is if Gettleman does go tackle at 28, it’ll be someone most weren’t expecting.

This seems to fly in the face of folks who think that need will be big factor in determining Gettleman's BPA philosophy.  Sure he could take a tackle or wide receiver or corner or other position.  But it will be based on who they think is the BPA not the BPA at a position of need.

Those thinking that receiver is the obvious choice might be surprised as well if the top guys are all gone at 28.  The only way we go WR is if there are guys who are head and shoulders above who we could get at 60 and there are no guys who are clearly shoulders above the rest at other positions.
