6. Washington Redskins- Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
7. Jacksonville Jaguars- Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
8. Carolina Panthers- Devon Still, DT, Penn St.
Defensive Tackle is what the Panthers perhaps need most, along with CB. They really have no one of significance in the middle, and it was especially obvious against the Saints. Their two rookie tackles also showed little, prompting Ronnie to go for this talent.
A hulking brute, Still is a monster in the middle. Standing at 6'5" and 310, he would bring some immediate size to our relatively undersized line. Fairly quick off the line, and capable of getting penetration consistently. Requires a double team, and is strong as an ox. Drafting Still would put some fear into the Carolina line and give the Panthers a legitimate DT.

40. Carolina Panthers- Dontari Poe, NT, Memphis
Now, I know many will probably dislike this pick, however it's necessary. Getting an UT with Still is a necessity, but so is a capable NT. Fua showed little in his time, and we have some guys right now who are essentially band-aids. Yes, we took two DTs last year, but the reality is that they likely won't develop into anything significant. They are spent costs. Our defense is supremely lacking stud DTs, or even good DTs. We've gotta go get 'em!
Poe is a prototypical 43 NT. He's got tremendous size, and along with Still, would give us a pretty tall and sturdy line. Standing at 6'5" and 350, he's got great strength, is surprisingly quick, and can be an immovable anchor. Drafting Poe and Still would essentially solve most of our defensive problems. Our line would once again have bite, and it would affect all other parts of the defense. Cam also won't have to worry about our defense losing the game for the Panthers anymore.
