Panthers director of college scouting Don Gregory believes "capable" starting receivers can be as found as late as the fourth round in this draft.

"If you do your homework you can find that type of guy in the fourth round," said Gregory. Senior Bowl director Phil Savage, the former Browns' GM, agrees. We're not pretending that Carolina is telegraphing its draft plans, but this is one of the reasons we don't expect the Panthers to use the No. 28 overall pick at wide receiver. The offensive line class isn't anywhere near as deep.

Watch out for DE or DB.

I just don't think Moses at 28 is a reach. If this WR class is 4 rounds deep like he's saying then we have to use the first pick to strengthen our oline.

If it isn't one of the top three OT's then I wouldn't use the 28th pick on them.

Only three OT's even close to a first round grade for me.

There's about 7-8 wr's worth a first round pick.

It is restating the obvious and that is this is a deep wr class.

On paper right now our oline is a laughing stock. We are hoping to find guys that can play tackle from a group of undrafted players. How you can have a franchise QB yet neglect the oline just doesn't make sense to me. It's cliche to say but it doesn't matter who the WRs are if Cam is getting blasted in the face by a DE.


If the wr's can't get open, it doesn't matter who you have at oline either. It goes both ways . There just isn't going to be a day one starting Lt available at 28th. Bell is going to be the LT this season.

Realistically I think we have to pick a an OT that can start but that is just me.

If a 4th round rookie WR starts for your team... then welp.

Wouldn't surprise me Fuller, Gilbert, or Shazier is our pick at 28. We always assume top draft guys are better than who we have or is available as FA. Our FO may deem OTs available as projects and see defensive players as immediate starters.

Sounds like we will draft a OT in the first.
