Carolina Panthers 2012 Draft: Which Option Would You Choose?

I don't know about you, but it's hard for me to believe that the draft is only four weeks away. As we all know, this will be a very important time for the Panthers as they continue to finalize their draft board. By looking at some of the prospects who have made their way to Bank of America Stadium over the past couple of weeks, it doesn't seem overly presumptuous to think that the Panthers are mostly interested at this point in adding a high impact defensive player with their first round pick.

Of course, if a certain offensive player falls to our #9 pick, the Panthers' diligent quest to find the very best defensive player on the board at that spot would almost certainly be cast to the wayside in order to take the highest rated overall player, which may very well be WR Justin Blackmon. With that being said, I don't think the former Oklahoma State stud will be their at nine, and that is reflected in the draft choices that you will find after the jump. For those who don't like any of the first four options, feel free to vote for the fifth draft, which I purposely left blank. If you do choose this particular draft, please take the time to share your own mock draft in the comment section after the poll. Let the decision-making begin.
