ESPN: "Panthers will attempt to trade back into the second round"

A Sal Paolatonio report to ESPN says team sources have informed him the organization will attempt to trade back into the second round in the NFL draft:

"The Panthers, who don't have a second-round pick, will also attempt to trade back into the second round, team sources told Paolantonio. Carolina has two third-round selections."

Now the question is 'who' and 'how much'? The same article says the Panthers have narrowed their choice down to four possible players at #1: Cam Newton, A.J. Green, Marcell Dareus and Patrick Peterson. Given this is the case it's reasonable to assume they would try and get one of these four positions they pass on #1 overall- so either QB, WR, DT or CB.

Who is the most logical choice? We'll look after the jump.

QB

Should the Panthers pass on QB #1 overall the obvious pick here would be Ryan Mallett. I say this because Mallett is still the only QB projected to be in the 2nd round who the Panthers invested heavy resources in scouting.

 

WR

Here Leonard Hankerson, Jerrell Jernigan and Torrey Smith all become possibilities, especially if Steve Smith leaves they will need a high picked WR.

 

DT

Stephen Paea and Marvin Austin jump out most immediately, both of whom are 1st round talents held back by either injury or behavioral issues.

 

CB

Aaron Williams, Ras-I Dowling and Brandon Harris would be possibilities at corner in the second round.

 

Who do you think CSR community? Who would the Panthers like enough to move up into the second round, and what would they have to pay to do so?
