Round 1: Fletcher Cox DT
Seems to be the flavor of the week right now. Cox is exactly what we need at DT. He is a relentless pass rusher with upside to get even better. He is also versatile. I believe he can make an instant impact.
Round 2: Janoris Jenkins CB
Jenkins has his red flags but that does not diminish his value as arguably the best cover corner in the draft. He needs to clean up his act and Rivera is the man to do that. He would look great starting opposite Gamble.
Round 4: Cam Johnson DE
This is wishful thinking on my part. Johnson might be gone by round 3 but i'm hoping injuries and lack of production may cause him to fall. Johnson is versatile, solid against the run, and when healthy has the ability to be a ferocious pass rusher.
Round 5: Terrell Manning LB
Manning is a pretty good overall LB. He can be little reckless at times. Also shows the versatility to play inside and out.
Round 6: Devon Wylie WR/RS
Some more wishful thinking. Wylie might fall due to injuries and size concerns. But, he just ran in the 4.3's and may be drafted in the 4th. This guy screams Wes Welker to me. Can cause damage in our offense. Also doubles up as a dynamic return man.
Round 6: Danny Trevathan OLB
Trevathan is constantly making big plays. I don't know why he is rated so low. He is a good blitzer with sideline to sideline speed. He would fit in nicely at WLB for us.
Round 7: Drew Butler P
Might as well get a punter on board with our last pick.

is it just me or does Jenkings not look 5'10 on tape? More like 5'9

I was just reading an excellent mock draft from the guys at http://www.sportsmasher.com
Everyone has the Panthers taking a Defensive Lineman in the first round. I've seen:
I understand that D-Line is a major need, and defense in general. However say Michael Floyd was available.
I think I would rather grab a playmaking stud wideout for Cam in the first round, then focus on defensive line and defense in general during the rest of the draft.
Say we grab:
-Michael Floyd in first
-Jerel Worthy, Devon Still, Mike Martin, Vinny Curry in the second.
I think that would be better than say:
-Cox in the first
-Reuben Randle in the second
What do you guys think?
Here is a link to their mock - really detailed. Good stuff:

Makes the already scary offense even scarier.
What are you thinking? All D?
