NFC South Analysis:

BEST MOVE

This wasn’t a flashy draft for the division. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Teams focused on the basics, and no team did a better job of that than Carolina.

New general manager Dave Gettleman apparently believes that everything starts up front. His selection of Lotulelei was a stroke of intelligence and a little bit of luck. By all rights, Lotulelei shouldn’t have been available at No. 14. Just a few months ago, people were talking about him as perhaps the No. 1 overall pick.

But a pre-draft medical scare caused Lotulelei’s stock to fall. He checked out fine medically, and I’m sure the Panthers did plenty of homework on his health situation. They ended up getting the best defensive tackle in the draft. Put Lotulelei in a rotation with Short and Dwan Edwards, and defensive tackle suddenly becomes a strength for Carolina. With the infusion of talent in the middle of the line, a Carolina front seven that’s good everywhere else could become a real force.

Carolina Panthers general manager David Gettleman had just five picks to work with, which gave him fewer chances to get it right. The Panthers lucked out in the first round by snagging the falling defensive tackle Star Lotulelei at 14th overall and then went defensive tackle again in the second, taking Kawaan Short from Purdue.
In Round 4, the Panthers went with an offensive guard (Edmond Kugbila), found a depth inside linebacker in Round 5 in A.J. Klein and got a fantastic value running back in Kenjon Barner in Round 6.

Needs Met: Defensive line.

Value and Depth: There may be no greater value depth signing than Kenjon Barner in this year's draft. Getting Lotulelei in Round 1 was a steal in its own right, too.

Boom/Bust Potential: All of Carolina's picks have greater upside than bust potential.

Grade: A

I actually liked the Bills draft.. the pick with Manuel makes sense now given the weapons they took to place around him. Plus they signed Da'Rick Rogers afterwards

The same guy gave the Raiders an F, and the Raiders actually had a nice draft this year. Guy doesn't know what he is talking about.

I stated this before. Its pointless to grade a draft prior to the players drafted taking the field. You cant say this player was a bad pick until you see how they pan out years from now.
