The best teams in the NFL win the draft by matching value with need across all seven rounds, and scoring top talent much later than they should have come off the board.

Here are our picks for the biggest steal for each of the 32 teams from the 2021 NFL draft:

Carolina Panthers--Guard Deonte Brown 193th Overall

Panthers selected G Deonte Brown with the No. 187 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Brown (6'3/344) was a 24-game starter in Tuscaloosa that left college with two national championship rings. He’s a force in the run game, combining Herculean raw power and light feet in one enormous package. Brown gave Auburn DT Derrick Brown, a top-10 NFL Draft pick, fits in 2019. But length and movement limitations -- Brown turned in a rough 1.49 RAS score at his pro day workout -- leave him exposed in pass protection against longer, springier interior players. Brown makes for a fearsome road-clearing run-blocker in a gap/power scheme if Carolina can handle the pass pro limitations. The Panthers offensive line was PFF's 19th rated run blocking unit in 2020.

He's also the biggest human we drafted.

I was thinking as I read the responses that he was clearly the "biggest" steal of the draft.  And biggest of any draft since 1985 gave the world Refrigerator Perry.

My vote goes to the nickname "Debo"

RIP to the real Debo (Thomas Lister), but I am hoping Brown gives us a lot of the following type moments making those holes for CMC!

He's had a nickname since he got to Alabama. You can't just change it. 

Nicknames can change, Karen! Gah!

From 2018...

"Whenever Deonte Brown calls or texts Bradley Bozeman, it pops up with his nickname, the one the redshirt sophomore offensive lineman has had since arriving at Alabama — “Cornbread.”

It may be time for a new nickname, though.

From the time I got his number, he’s been saved in my phone as that, as Cornbread,” said Bozeman, who is now with the Baltimore Ravens. “But, I mean, he’s more closer to a flatbread now.”

Two years ago, the 6-foot-4 Brown arrived in Tuscaloosa weighing 400 pounds. Two years later, the Decatur native is down 70 pounds and may be the Crimson Tide’s long-term answer at left guard, a position that had been a consistent problem area for the Tide through the first half of the regular season."

He was Cornbread at 400lbs and Flatbread at 330lbs.

We drafted him at 345lbs, so I nominate Focaccia!
