Panthers 2012 Draft CSR Fan Poll Results

I have to admit that I was skeptical about how well the turn-out would be for this draft exercise, and I was pleasantly surprised. My idea continually evolved as I was able to see where CSR nation stood when it came to who they had their eyes on in the upcoming draft. It will certainly be interesting to see how the draft ultimately turns out because some of these very players that you voted for may actually don the Panther's blue and black next season. Let's go ahead and get to the results, which were fairly close. Drum roll please.

1st place- With 19% of the vote

1st round: DT Michael Brockers LSU

2nd round: CB Chase Minnifield Virginia

4th round: OLB Sean Spence Miami

More results after the jump...

2nd place- With 12% of the vote

1st round: CB Dre Kirkpatrick Alabama

2nd round: NT Alameda Ta'amu Washington

4th round: OLB Sean Spence Miami

3rd place- Tied with 11% of the vote

1st round: DT Michael Brockers LSU

2nd round: DE/OLB Vinny Curry Marshall

4th round: FS George lloka Boise State

3rd place- Tied with 11% of the vote

1st round: CB Dre Kirkpatrick Alabama

2nd round: NT Alameda Ta'amu Washington

4th round: DE Cam Johnson Virginia

As you can see, the most popular players to draft were all on the defensive side of the ball, which wasn't surprising. Brockers, Kirkpatrick, and Ta'amu were the clear winners among the voters, and I expected as much. The obvious sentiment among the majority of CSR nation and beyond during the season was that the Panthers needed the biggest upgrades at the DT and CB positions. However, I will say this: If we do pass on Jonathan Martin, among other offensive lineman in the first three rounds, I wouldn't be upset, but the tackle and guard positions cannot be completely ignored. I look forward to the next couple of months as reports of individual player interviews and workouts are revealed at the combine and pro days. We can only hope to get a better sense of what direction the Panthers might go as we get closer to draft day, when anything can happen. In the meantime, I may spit out another series similar to this one after the combine, where players will rise and fall faster than it takes to finish reading this post(About 4.3 seconds). Until then, never forget to love without condition, and enjoy the journey my CSR friends.
