Best college player at each position

probably BPA from any position except QB, RB, or LB.
We could go in all kinds of different directions in the first round. It will be very interesting
and i'd be fine with it.
that is something that anyone doing a mock for the panthers needs to be considering...esp. in here.
you can't go and mock a guy for the draft based on need, esp. if you have any hope of it being realistic. you're going to have to either know or guess where we are drafting as well as who is ahead of us and mock them as well to see who the BPAs are. zoning in on one or two positions isn't going to help make a good mock.

Do you guys really feel like DT is that early of a need? For the 1st time in awhile I feel good about what we have going forward at DT with Neblett , Kearse as depth for Edwards squared.. FA seems the best place to find DT's anyhow.
Yea, I do. I think our DTs are playing OK right now, but Ron ain't no spring chicken. I'd rather get one too early than get one too late (which is what we've been doing for the past 5 or 6 years...). Without Ron, we have no run stuffers. Kearse looked good at times last year, haven't seen anything positive out of him this year though. He's the only other guy that comes close to being able to fill Ron's role.
(and please don't try to mention Fua as an alternative...)
In my opinion, the only other position that should really be considered in the 1st (barring some all-world player at a position of less need falling to us) is WR if there's a guy available that looks to be a legit #1 star WR replacement for Smitty.

FS: None are really worth a top 10 pick in my opinion. Reid has been a bit disappointing this year considering the DL he has. Did he flash more because of Claiborne, Mathieu, and Taylor? Jefferson definitely has great coverage skills. McDonald is solid not much of a ballhawk. I really like Robert Lester and Bacarri Rambo. Look like the best all around and can be had in the 2nd.
I agree with your take on Reid. I've been seeing the same things. Even though he just made a crucial INT, he has been pretty non-existent this year.
