Fairley eager to hear from Panthers

Fairley, the junior defensive tackle from Auburn, hopes to join Russell as the next No. 1 pick to come out of Williamson High, an inner-city school across the railroad tracks from Ladd-Peebles Stadium, site of Saturday's Senior Bowl.

Fairley said he has yet to hear from the owners of that top pick, but is anxious to.

“I would love to go to the Panthers,” Fairley said in a phone interview Thursday. “I can't wait to hear from them.”

Fairley, who has been training in Houston, was scheduled to fly to Mobile on Thursday, after many of the NFL scouts and coaches in town for the Senior Bowl have left. Fairley, who is projected as the top pick by ESPN's Mel Kiper, said he did not have any meetings scheduled with NFL teams this weekend.

Fairley has a connection to Charlotte already. He is working with Kathleen Hessert, a Charlotte-based sports and social media consultant famous for getting Shaquille O'Neal started on Twitter. Fairley, who was in Charlotte in December for the Nagurski Award (won by Clemson DE Da'Quan Bowers), said Hessert has been singing the Queen City's praises.

“Charlotte is a big city. I see that from when I was up there flying in,” Fairley said. “But it's a community-type atmosphere while you're there.”

Hessert said Fairley will be at the Super Bowl next week and plans to work out at the combine in February.

He just wants the #1 money. If a CBA isn't in place with a rookie cap, no way in hell. No DT in history, Sapp, Suh whatever is worth QB money.
