Look for Carolina to swing multiple trades come draft day. Goodson or Deangelo will not be here next year. The next coach, cowher, is going to want to get his type of players quick. Carolina may continually trade down until the 3rd round and stock up. Since they will have the cap room to sign free agents, its not 100% necessary to use that 1st round pick.
If you Guys truly have the 1st pick in the draft next year it will depend if there is a Rookie cap in place. If there is a cap you might come out very well doing that. If there is still no cap the #1 pick is almost impossible to trade out of!
