Carolina Panthers pick at number 48 in the second roound of this years draft who should they choose?
The Carolina Panthers have traded each of their 1st round picks in back to back seasons resulting them picking in the second round of this years 2010 NFL draft. The Panthers will pick 16th in the second round and 48th overall but with all the talent in this years draft you can still get a good contrubutor in the second round beacause of the depth at certain positions and in the Panthers case the Defensive line.
With the loss of longtime stud Julius Peppers other players will have to step up this season and try to fill his big shoes including Rookie last season Everette Brown, DE Tyler Brayton etc.... But I dont think those guys will cut it and maybe an even bigger hole at DT with the losses of Maake Kemoeatu and other starting DT Damione Lewis, So will the Panthers go after a potential starting DT or DE who knows with the Panthers they probably end up trading into the 1st round or out of their next years pick , but if they do stick with the 48th pick I like them to go after DE/DT Tyson Alualu from Cal who has a great motor and gives it his all every snap and will come to Carolina and make an immediate impact on the D-Line.
Another DT I like (If Tyson isnt available) is Cam Thomas from UNC who had a great Senior Bowl and is a hassel for any guard/center to deal with. As you can see I like the Panthers to go get Defense before a WR, but I can still see the Panthers going after a WR with their second round pick and if they do assuming Arelious Benn from Illinois isnt available I would like to see the Panthers take Mardy Gilyard from Cinncinatti who brings a quick possesion receiver opposite Steve Smith and a guy who can do some damge in the return game. Let me know what you guys think of my selctions for the draft and some of your personal choices for the Panthers to go get in the 2010 NFL draft.
