The folks over at Mocking the Draft have a full 5 round mock they put up yesterday, and while I'm not a huge fan of all the picks I see the rationale behind it- rush the passer. Simply put, the Carolina Panthers need to get a more reliable and consistent pass rush and in turn that will make the defense better.
The following is directly from the linked mock draft, with my commentary
1st round: Quinton Coples, DE- North Carolina
I have problems with Coples as a prospect, as I feel he gets lazy a lot. If Rivera can get him to play to his full potential every down then he could be a dominant player.
More after the jump
2nd round: Vontaze Burfict, OLB- Arizona State
He tends to lose himself at times and can become undisciplined, but he has ability to be a nasty pass rusher at the next level from the OLB position.
4th round: Don Barclay, OL- West Virginia
A big 6'4", 310 lb player who played LT for the mountaineers. Projects better to RT or RG at the next level, but a decent mid-round addition.
5th round: Coryell Judie, CB- Texas A&M
A smaller sized corner with a lot of potential coming off an injury... sounds like Brandon Hogan 2.0, but without the character concerns. Seems like another solid mid round pick, I just hope we don't wait until the 5th to address the secondary.
