2012 Draft's NT's

The Panthers may not be able to add a veteran free agent NT this season, unless the Ravens 34 year old Kelly Gregg is cut, the 49ers 30+ Aubrayo Franklin is about the only free agent NT available this season, but both are just short-term stop-gaps. The Panthers #97 draft pick Sione Fua is a NT, but small at around 310 pounds, and many scouts believe he will never be more than a backup. So here is a look at who might be some of the top NT's in the 2012 draft, from walterfootball.com (WF), and nfldraftscout.com (DS) Dt rankings.

2012 NT's (Seniors):

2014 NT's ("redshirt"Soph.):

#1 (DS) - Kwume Geathers (6-5, 348, 5.33-40 DS) (6-6, 326, DS Chad Reuter) of Georgia, "Jumpy's" nephew

NOTE: Only 21 DT's were drafted this year, and these rankings will probably change greatly over the the season, but it's a good list of names to watch.
