[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][color=#000000]Below is the list of guys the Panthers have already brought in for Pre-Draft Visits. Just some thoughts as to possibly what Hurney & Rivera are thinking, based only on who they brought in for visits. Each team gets 30 visits, but to date, I can only find 25 guys brought in for the Panthers. Add more to the list if you know of any others.[/color][/size]

[size=3][color=#000000]Overall it seems like they are focused on addressing needs for: DT, LB, FS, WR, G (& possibly DE). Seems strange they haven't had more CBs in for visits.[/color][/size]

[color=#000000][size=3]I think their choices show mostly a 1[/size][sup][size=2]st[/size][/sup][size=3] round focus with DTs, except possibly that Worthy may be there in the 2[/size][sup][size=2]nd[/size][/sup][size=3]. [/size][size=3]DE Jones as possibly still being there in the 2[/size][sup][size=2]nd[/size][/sup][size=3]. [/size][size=3]Thinking that 1 of the WRs Wright, Hill, Randle & Jenkins to be there in the 2[/size][sup][size=2]nd[/size][/sup][size=3] & Adams for the 4[/size][sup][size=2]th[/size][/sup][size=3]? [/size][size=3]That the LBs, other than Kuechly, some will be there in the 4[/size][sup][size=2]th [/size][/sup][size=3]when we pick. [/size][size=3]FS prospects: lloka is a higher round prospect who should be gone by the 3[/size][sup][size=2]rd[/size][/sup][size=3]; McCray should be there in the 5[/size][sup][size=2]th[/size][/sup][size=3] & after. [/size][size=3]Guards Zeitler & Silatulo are 2[/size][sup][size=2]nd[/size][/sup][size=3]–3[/size][sup][size=2]rd [/size][/sup][size=3]round projections & Leary is a late round projection.[/size][/color]

[size=3][color=#000000][u]Here’s the list with thoughts (parenthesis = date of visit, if found)[/u]:[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000]DT:[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State (4/17) [/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Michael Brockers, LSU (3/9) [/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Dontari Poe, Memphis [/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Jerel Worthy, Michigan State[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][color=#000000][size=3]·[/size] [size=3]Determining who to go with in the 1[/size][sup][size=2]st[/size][/sup][size=3] & possibly thinking Worthy may be there in the 2[/size][sup][size=2]nd[/size][/sup][size=3] if they went WR, LB, etc in the 1[/size][sup][size=2]st[/size][/sup][size=3].[/size][/color]

[size=3][color=#000000]DE: [/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Quinton Coples, UNC (3/12)[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Chandler Jones, Syracuse[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][color=#000000][size=3]·[/size] [size=3]Coples to decide for the 1[/size][sup][size=2]st[/size][/sup][size=3], Jones for if he’s there in the 2[/size][sup][size=2]nd[/size][/sup][size=3]. Jones is very good, but his stock is rising a lot, may not be there anymore. [/size][size=3]I would love Jones in the 2[/size][sup][size=2]nd[/size][/sup][size=3].[/size][/color]

[size=3][color=#000000]ILB: [/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Luke Kuechly, Boston College (3/22)[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Bruce Irvin, West Virgina[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Keenan Robinson, Texas[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] James-Michael Johnson, Nevada[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][color=#000000][size=3]·[/size] [size=3]Interesting that they brought in 4 [i]INSIDE[/i] LBs. Kuechly is d/t draft position, IMO, but why ILBs? I know they can be converted, but are they thinking about shifting Beason outside if Davis can’t come back full strength? I don’t like Irvin, but I do like Robinson & he has great size…I really like Johnson (very good instincts).[/size][/color]

[size=3][color=#000000]CB: [/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Morris Claiborne, LSU (4/10)[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Stephon Gilmore, South Carolina (4/9)[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Trumaine Johnson, Montana (CB/FS)[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][color=#000000][size=3]·[/size] [size=3]The first 2 is for 1[/size][sup][size=2]st[/size][/sup][size=3] round determination if they are there, Johnson must be for the 2[/size][sup][size=2]nd[/size][/sup][size=3]?, since we don’t pick again until the 4[/size][sup][size=2]th[/size][/sup][size=3] & he shouldn’t be there. This concerns me, but he is a good FS prospect only, not corner b/c he is slow for CB.[/size][/color]

[size=3][color=#000000]S: [/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] George Iloka, Bopise State[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Kelcie McCray, Arkansas State[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][color=#000000][size=3]·[/size] [size=3]Glad to see they are thinking about the safety position, with these 2 + Johnson. I do not like lloka (not a playmaker, just great measureables). I would prefer some other guys though in later rounds (Brandon Hardin 5[/size][sup][size=2]th[/size][/sup][size=3] or later; Matt Daniels or Phillip Thomas in 7[/size][sup][size=2]th[/size][/sup][size=3] or UDFA). [/size][/color]

[size=3][color=#000000]WR: [/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Michael Floyd, Notre Dame[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Kendall Wright, Baylor[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Rueben Randle, LSU[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] A.J. Jenkins, Illinois[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Joe Adams, Arkansas[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][color=#000000][size=3]·[/size] [size=3]1[/size][sup][size=2]st[/size][/sup][size=3] round projections for Blackmon (who actual could fall) or Floyd. [/size][size=3]Hill-Jenkins in 2[/size][sup][size=2]nd[/size][/sup][size=3] & Adams in the 4[/size][sup][size=2]th[/size][/sup][size=3] if still on the board.[/size][/color]

[size=3][color=#000000]G: [/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Kevin Zeitler, Wisconsin[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Amini Silatolu, Midwestern State[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] Ronald Leary, Memphis[/color][/size]
[size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][color=#000000][size=3]·[/size] [size=3]Shows they are serious about the G position, b/c 2 out of 3 are 2[/size][sup][size=2]nd[/size][/sup][size=3] round projections.[/size][/color]

[color=#000000][size=3]Just my thoughts, since we are geting closer to 'the day'. Hurney is usually pretty good at throwing everybody off, so it's probably off-the-mark, but there's nothing else happening right now, so figured it's a good discussion to open for everybodys thoughts...[/size][/color][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font]


[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][color=#000000]edited for font (looked screwy)[/color][/size][/font]

I think our second may end up being the likes of Zeitler, Johnson, Hosley, or Hill...but if Kendall Wright makes it to 2.9 I'm all over that like white on rice
