The next Panther Star WR

Latest mock draft on ESPN has Patterson going to Miami at 12 and us taking Austin at 14. Hopefully Miami picks up Wallace and we get Patterson.

TAVON AUSTIN - CAROLINA

Pick analysis: Austin can't be used in the same manner as Steve Smith, but he can add another element of explosiveness to a passing attack that could use a player with his exact skills. Smith turns 34 two weeks after the draft, and Cam Newton could use an underneath target with the capability to do some damage after the catch.

Free-agency factor: The Panthers lack the flexibility to add splash in the passing game via free agency, so I don't see the process doing anything to diminish the value Austin could add.

CORDARRELLE PATTERSON - MIAMI

Pick analysis: He needs work as a route-runner, but Patterson is a potential difference-maker in the passing game. He can go up and get it, take the top off defenses and keep safeties deep because of his speed, and he's a big, physical, shifty runner with the ball in his hands.

Free-agency factor: If the Dolphins make a splash move and add a player such as Mike Wallace or Greg Jennings, they could go in another direction at this spot. They certainly could be thinking tackle if Jake Long moves on.

I like Austin as a 2nd rounder because we need a guy at least 6'0 as our #1 target. The superbowl was won this year with height. Tall receivers bringing down jump balls.

How about we make a splash for once? I'm tired of watching other teams on NFL Network every night while we go unmentioned.

Dwayne Jarrett and Keary Colbert called to state their cases. More horrible threads ahead.
