NFL Mock draft.

Disclaimer: This is what I believe could happen. Many pieces have been moved around. I firmly believe many prospects will fall and certain teams will make moves to obtain position of need. Thus giving us a chance to draft a top ten talent.

With the 14th pick of the 2013 NFL DRAFT the Carolina Panthers select..

Star Lotulelei

Reasoning, his health scare and the rise of other tackles during his misdiagnosed condition. Primed the competition to leap frog his stock. Teams may also be hesitant due to said previous scare. Stars skill set is still present. He's a dominating force on the inside. Can play any tech position so he will be able to be an under tackle or be that missing nose tackle that the line has been missing for several years. His size allows him to be a nose tackle. In college he played both positions, nose and under tackle. The choosing of Lotulelei gives the Panthers a more potent defensive line, as well as balancing it. Dwan Edwards has proven to be formidable during passing downs. The sane cannot be said for rushing downs. The injection of Lotulelei irons out that imbalance. Star is not only a good pass rusher, he's adequate against the run. Given his versatile profile, he would mesh perfectly with the Panthers Sub packages, working alongside Greg Hardy, And having Johnson and Alexander rush on the outside.

2nd round:

Justin Hunter

Hunter is just what is needed for the offense. He has prototypical side and has shades of a legitimate number one wide out. At 6'4 200 pounds, a surprising forty time at 4.44 and a 39.5 vertical jump. These measureables are reminiscent of a certain wide out that took the league by storm, hailing from Georgia. Hunter is a bit raw and has had an injury but his skill set is present. With the right coaching he can become the weapon on the outside that the Panthers sorely need to supplant a crowd favorite that is unfortunately being caught by father time.

4th round

Jordan Mills

A rather unknown prospect. His senior bowl performance was decent, at 6'5 and with surprising athleticism for a 320 pound man. He did not face the fiercest competition in the division he carried out his collegiate career however, in the senior bowl. He showed he can hold his own and lay down the law. In the fourth round, this would be a value pick. It would also fill a need.

5th round

Josh Evans

Another value pick at a position of need. The safety position needs a huge upgrade. Evans was a decent safety at Florida. He was also a stand out player at the East-West Shrine game. He displayed an ability to cover well and was great against the run. He does not shy away from hits and is not afraid of making a hit. Something sorely needed in the secondary.

6th round

Caleb Sturgis

He kicks. It is not a secret the panthers need a new kicker. Sturgis has been clutch all his career. He also makes 50 yarders, with ease. It would be a solid pick up this late in the draft.

Yea the first two picks alone make this draft a resounding success. I couldn't be much happier than if those are our first two.

I like it...think it is far fetched, esp with the Hunter pick, but I would cry tears of joy if this happened.

I think we have to find a way to make a trade or two. The draft isnt heavy with elite talent, but there are a lot of nfl starters in rounds one through three. I wish we wouldn't have traded up for alexander last year. Im fine with Frank, just would have preferred not to pick Joe Adams at all and alexander instead.

Then we could have went wr, s, dt in just about any order and gotten three day one starters.

If we were to get Star, it wouldn't even matter. They might be the worst secondary in the league but they'd look like middle of the road because of how dominant our DL and LBs would be.

If we got star I wouldn't be opposed to trading up in order to get hunter because I feel like if these were our only two picks we would be the biggest winners of the draft just being honest. Even if we did have to give up this years 4th and 5th rounders to get him. But I am really high on Justin hunter if you can't tell

If we could land Star in first, (also just predicted today by Florio) would be huge win and almost wouldn't care who we took rest of draft.
