Zod's Official Panthers Mock Draft Rounds 1-3
Here we are folks, two weeks out from the draft. I have crunched the numbers and applied out proprietary algorithm.
The following is a spoiler alert.
Round 1 - Morgan Moses - OT - Virginia
The departure of Desean Jackson in Philly solidifies their Brandin Cooks selection, who was previously my pick for the Panthers. Moses may be best at right tackle, which would make for much camp intrigue. Could the Panthers really be considering Byron Bell at left tackle? Could be. Bonus: The Moses selection would open up the floodgates for corny Old Testament puns from our tired local media.
Round 2 - Marcus Roberson - CB - Florida
This is a classic best player available pick. Yes, wide receiver is a huge need, but cornerback is not far behind. Roberson is a value at pick 60. He won the starting job at Florida as a true freshman. He could be a day 1 starter as well, which is all you can ask for from a second round pick.
Round 3 - Jared Abbrederis - WR - Wisconsin
Abbrederis is the best route runner in the draft. Under the tutelage of Ricky Proehl he will develop into a reliable clutch possession receiver. This kid is first and foremost a football player, and Gettleman is a guy that appreciates that. Abbrederis is as close to pro ready as any WR in this draft.
