Had to move some stuff to a second post.

Overview of all the picks from the Charlotte Observer.

http://blogs.charlotte.com/panthers/2010/04/morningafter-draft-thoughts.html

Highlights -

— Poor WR Brandon LaFell.

When the Panthers took Clausen early and Edwards late, he became the forgotten man.

But he has a chance to have a big role here, and early.

Given Dwayne Jarrett's stubborn refusal to catch a job they threw forcefully at him the last two years, LaFell will have a chance to get a uniform on Sundays if not a starting job quickly.

Draft thoughts

My Take on the Panthers draft.

Clausen - 2nd best qb in the draft and the Most NFL ready QB in the draft. Easily could be a top 5 QB in 2-3 years. Strong arm, very accurate passer on short - medium throws. Good Accuracy on long throws. Clausen can make all the throws an NFL qb needs to make. Wind up on long passes is a bit strange and puts a lot of torque on his body.

LaFell - Has Good size at 6-3, 215 with decent speed at a 4.5. Tough physical player who uses his body well to shield DB's. Great blocker in the run game. Should develop into a #1 WR in the NFL in a few Years.

Edwards - Project pick that both Fox and Hurney wanted to get, Amazing athlete with great 4.2 - 4.4 speed. Should get time on ST and in Wildcat formations in year 1.

Norwood - Great edge rusher with experience playing both DE and OLB. Decent - good coverage skills and should be excellent in blitzing the QB either from the DE or OLB spot. Has a chance to compete in camp for the SLB starting spot.

Hardy - Great size and pass rush ability...6-5 280 with good speed. Some questions about effort and motor...should only see time on 3rd down passing situations in rookie year.

Gettis - Another Project pick at WR for the Panthers. Great size and Speed at 6-3 217 4.39/4.4 speed. Great athlete and has a chance to develop into a #1 WR in the NFL, should be at least a great Slot option. Major issue is he tries to catch the ball with his body too much, but he did show major improvement throughout the last college season.

The trio of Cb's taken in late in the draft fill a need if Marshall doesn't come back to Carolina. They battle each other in camp and the best 1 wins the dime spot this season and a shot at starter next year. I think they plan on keeping the Captin at the Nickel spot.
