In the event of rookie QB Cam Newton shredding NFL defenses for over 400 yards in each of his first two games, the only real receiving threat is veteran Steve Smith.

Yes, he does have two solid TEs in Jeremy Shockey and Greg Olsen, but the need of another stud WR is crucial to the continuing success of this offense.

With that in mind, the Carolina Panthers will pick Alshon Jeffery, WR from South Carolina in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Hope not.

No YAC, marginal speed, not a big need, etc.

I'd rather have Floyd or Blackmon if we're going WR, but I don't think we will.

I think he would be a good compliment to Steve Smith. I like him a lot.

He may not have much YAC yardage, but he catches everything. I will take that over a guy with pretty combine numbers.

I see him as a Keyshawn Johnson type guy.

I see Blackmon as far better, I'd take Floyd, Toon, Broyles and a few others first. He reminds me of Mike Williams of USC.

Also, rather than just a compliment to Smith I'm looking for an eventual replacement.

Alshon is clearly far and away the best Receiving prospect in this class, but unfortunatley, Blackmon is better suited to this offense. The thing with Blackmon is that he is boom or bust. He may be good, or he may bust very, very bad. Floyd I would not touch with a ten foot pole. Beyond that, just a bunch of guys in this year's class that we should have no desire for.

Absolutely NO chance we will take a WR with our first pick. If we did, I'd take Blackmon. That's about it. WR is not a position we need to worry about improving just yet.

Everything I've seen has Bkackmon as the top rated WR, not Jeffery.

Blackmon is explosive after the catch, similar to Smith but alot bigger size.

My Bold Prediciton. We will not draft a single WR. Atleast I wouldn't with how many draft picks we have invested in them the past couple years. Steve Smith can be our #1 for another 2-3 years after this season, and well still have lafell, legedu, pilares, edwards and Gettis, who I think could be our next #1 a few years down the road if he recovers fully from his injury Lafell could and should be our #2.
