My official first round draft choice is... Dontari Poe.
A true nose tackle, Poe is the anchor this defensive line needs. At close to 350 pounds, he can hold his ground and disrupt what the opposing offensive lines are trying to do. While Poe will not rack up sacks or even tackles, he will be an integral and unheralded piece of the defense. Should the Panthers ever move to a 3-4, he would fit the mold.
Yes, we have Ron Edwards, a mediocre starter at best even when healthy. Now that he is coming off an injury, I have little faith.
This pick instantly improves the Panthers run defense between the tackles, where they were gashed last season at will.
So it is written, so it will be done.
