The Panthers may need to look toward the South in the 2012 Draft, because South Carolina is more loaded with NFL talent than almost any SEC team. South Carolina has at leat 3 1st round talents:
Top 10 - WR Alshon Jeffery (6-4, 233, 4.50-40), a junior
Top 20 - CB Stephon Gilmore (6-1, 190, 4.48-40), a junior
Top 25 - DE/OLB Devin Taylor (6-7, 250, 4.71-40), a junior, is he another Ted Hendricks (the Mad Stork)?
2 Seniors who might rise up draft boards this season:
DE/DT Travian Robertson (6-4, 295, 4.82-40)
DE/OLB Melvin Ingram (6-2, 271, 4.82-40), he will be a first year starter (stuck behind talent like Devin Taylor and Eric Norwood until now), but of his 11 TFL's last season, 9 were QB sacks.
