- Panthers trade down for 49ers 31 and 34 picks
This would give us a chance to fill the rest of our needs and fill our 3rd round pick that we don't have
- 1st Rd: DT Johnathan Hankins/ DT Kwann Short/ DT Jonathan Jenkins
Although we got Edwards back, we need another run stopper in the middle if we want to become a top 10 defense. I think any one of these guys is the best choice here. This is obviously our biggest need.
- 2nd Rd: WR Steadman Bailey/ WR DeAndre Hopkins
Steve smith cant play forever, he needs help! Steadman Bailey is the most underrated WR in the whole draft! I think he is a top 5 WR. He can play outside and slot. Has some of the softest hands and smoothest routes, did I mention he can also catch the deep ball. But if DeAndre falls, we should maybe take a chance on him here.
- 2nd Rd: OT Kyle Long
We need another dominate force upfront to help protect Cam Newton back there. With Long's strength and quickness, I think he can do just that. Football is in his blood as his brother Chris Long plays for the fans and his dad Howie Long is an NFL Hall of Famer.
- 4th Rd: S Robert Lester/ S D.J. Swearinger/ S Bacarri Rambo
Lester is another underrated player. He started for a top defense in college. He has some of the best instincts and playmaker ability in his Safety class. He can also cover a deep zone. He only falls this far because of his drop off year in 2012. Rambo is also another playmaking safety, but he needs to improve on his deep half zone.
- 5th Rd: LB Jelani Jenkins/ LB John Simon
Jenkins is a sideline to sideline LB. Ron Rivera being a LB coach, these are the types of LB's he likes. Although Jenkins is a sideline to sideline player, his biggest strength might just be his zone coverage. That's a plus! Simon on the other hand has a dog/beast mentality. He will get the job done. Was clearly ohio states best defensive player and leader.
- 6th Rd: OT/G Terron Armstead/ K Caleb Sturgis
Even though I don't think he will be available here, Armstead would be a STEAL! Most athletic lineman in the draft. He will be able to block quicker defensive lineman. Caleb Sturgis is the best kicker in the draft and we are in need of someone who can put the ball inbetween the goalposts.
