Before I get to the fan reactions, I should probably share the official CSR reaction to the news that Lotulelei was the Panthers' pick:
Yeah, I'd say the CSR Social Media Czar was pretty stoked, wouldn't you?
Well, he wasn't the only one, as you're about to see. After the pick was made I asked fans to answer one simple question: "What do you think about the Panthers' selection of Star Lotulelei at 14th overall?"
Below you will find some of the best answers we received.
Thankfully you weren't jumping up and down while driving, because that's dangerous.
Corny pun aside, you're absolutely right. He's the perfect fit for Carolina's defense.
I agree. It's been a long time since we've had a D-Line this scary.
He was #1 on a lot of fans' boards, but I don't think many people thought we had any real shot at drafting him, that's for sure.
It was definitely a shocker. I'm surprised the Jets didn't take him at 13. I'm glad they didn't though.
Positive thinking. I like that!
I know we've been talking about it a lot since the pick was made, but when has that ever stopped us? Why don't you share with us how you feel now that we've added an elite run stuffer to the defensive line?
We want to hear from you, so tell us what you think Panthers fans!
