With Davis injury, where does that leave us next draft?

Bruce Carter is the only player I would draft with a high pick out of UNC, but I would definitely do it. This guy screams potential

Rob Rang, at nfldraftscout.com tells who NFL teams draft scouts rank as the best player in the coming 2011 draft.

First let me explain how the 2 scouting services used by NFL teams (BLESTO and National Football Scouting) work. The NFL teams pay to be members, and must provide at least 1 draft scout, in return they receive their rankings of the players in the draft. Around half the NFL teams use BLESTO, and the other half use National Football Scouting.

National ranks the top 3 2011 draft prospects as (1) CB-Prince Amukamara, (2) DE-Adrian Clayborn, and (3) OLB-Mark Herzlich, with QB- Jake Locker rated as a late 1st or 2nd round draft pick. However, for people who make their living as draft scouts, their recent track record is shockingly poor. At this time each year, for 3 of the last 4 years, these were their top ranked players, 2010 - DE Greg Hardy (a 6th round pick), 2009 - DE Michael Johnson (a 3rd round pick), and in 2007 - DE Jarvis Moss (a 3rd round pick).

Considering our division I think we'll probably draft a CB or DE/DT. Brees is elite, ryan is emerging, and freeman showed potential.

unless Jamar Williams, Dan Connor, and James Anderson all suck, we won't be drafting a LB, unless it is for depth. AND we MIGHT also consider trading Thomas Davis if Beason does good at WLB, Connor does good at MLB, and Anderson does good at SLB.

...oh yeah, and don't forget about Eric Norwood.

I don't really see Norwood stepping into a starting role in this Cover 2 that quickly even at SLB. He's a pass rusher, but not a full time DE so they're going to invent a position to get him on the field, I know we called Davis the "Joker" in certain packages his rookie year when he would roam from the secondary to linebacker. So what will Norwood be called?

Davis is on a 1-year deal (he was an RFA, remember?)and may very likely be gone after this second injury to the same knee. Carolina may not offer him another deal with the Norwood selection and Williams signing. But then, Carolina may offer up their first round pick to move up in the third round to take a LB....
