So we all had our mock drafts preceding the actual draft. I loved watching it all unfold, but I couldn't help but to judge the picks that the Panthers against the picks that I would have made. I hope that all of the actual picks we made work out, but I have to admit that I did not like some of them. After the jump you will see where I thought that we reached significantly, and what I think we could have done. I say all of this knowing that if they had wanted my opinion they would have asked for it. They determined the best picks like it was their job... This is just fun for me, so what do I know? I'd love to see who y'all would have picked based on who was available at each of our spots.
