The 2012 Panthers Draft Discussion
I havent seen any of these in here yet so I decided to make one. This is going to be a very critical draft for this staff seeing as we look to be a team on the upswing. We have plenty of needs on both sides of the ball, but defense seems to be in need of an upgrade. I have the top needs for the Panthers in this order.
As of now we are in the 8th spot with two games left. At that point it seems like a lot of top guys like Kalil, Claiborne, Blackmon, etc will be gone. Reaching for a guy like Kirkpatrick, Martin, any of the DTs dosen't seem like the right decision. A guy that seems to be an interesting option is Quinton Coples. He fits multiple needs on defense and probably wouldn't be that much of a reach. Another scenario I would like is a double dip in the South Carolina pool if we finish out of the top 10. Draft Alshon Jeffery in the first and Gilmore in the second. Both fill pressing needs at this point. What are everyone's thoughts?
