I do not care about the low draft grade with the way they select need positions. This works for me.
Leveraged the Panthers 1st round picks from the next two seasons for 1st round picks now. Only players I would do this for are Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans, and Eric Ebron. Then traded down to stock pile mid round picks since the Panthers need quantity from a draft with a deep talent pool in receivers, defensive backs, and offensive tackles.

I like either draft given the Panthers current needs, but I see so much depth in this draft it would be a waste not to stock pile mid to late-mid round picks. If the Panthers can work their way into the first round for an immediate impact player in the passing game, then trade the first round picks for the next 2 seasons. With the CBA the way it is the Panthers are set in the passing game and have good DB depth for the next 4 seasons. Sets the Panthers up to use the next two drafts for depth and use Free Agency as needed.over the next 2-3 seasons.
