Mocking In The Free World: A Quick Roundup

As the draft tank slowly starts to simmer, this week I'm looking at three different looks at what the Panthers will do. Two are from Walterfootball.com, and one is from Fox Sports. I'm interested to hear from you, the community- what do you think about how these pundits view the upcoming draft:

Walter Football

Walter Cherepinsky

1-9: Dre Kirkpatick, CB- Alabama

As Walter says "The top defender on the board who makes sense is Dre Kirkpatrick, who would instantly upgrade Carolina's poor group of corners. The Panthers were dead last against aerial attacks (8.4 YPA) for a reason.". Kirkpatrick would really shore up our defense out of the gate.

2-40: Mike Adams, OT- Ohio State

This would be good insurance for Jeff Otah, and help keep Cam Newton upside. Adams has big upside, and that makes him an attractive pick.

More mocks after the jump

Charlie Campell

1-9: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB- Alabama

Following Walter, fellow mocker Charlie Campbell is also sending Dre K to Carolina.

2-40: Kendall Wright, WR- Baylor

Not sure I'm enamored with this pick in Wright, in who I see more Randall Cobb than Steve Smith. Sure, he'd upgrade the offense, but I feel this misses a lot of other areas.

Fox Sports

Pete Schrager

1-9: Quinton Coples, DE- UNC

I'm sure there are a lot of Coples fans out there... I'm not one of them. Personally, I see a DE who padded a lot of his stats against Duke and James Madison without a great deal of stellar play against elite teams. I know he can move all around the DL, but this early in the draft I prefer a master of one trade, than a jack of all.
