Top of the 4th round is loaded with quality talent

The Panthers currently pick 11th in the 4th round, but great news, the top of the 4th round is loaded with talent. The Panthers can either trade back a few spots, and gain an extra draft pick (6th or 7th round) that they need so much, or just keep the 108th pick, and draft a qualty talent. The thought of some of the players left will have some peoples mouths watering, WR's Quinton Patton and Da'Rick Rogers, OG/OT/C's Barrett Jones (a 1st round pick, before his Liz Frank injury/surgery), FS's Bacarri Rambo and Phillip Thomas, SS's Shamarko Thomas and Duke Williams, DE Cornelius Washington and more.

Dane Brugler's (CBSSports/NFLDraftScout) list of the top 40 players left:

1. QB - Matt Barkley

2. NT - Jesse Williams

3. QB - Ryan Nassib

4. RB - Johnathan Franklin

5. DE - Alex Okafor

6. QB - Tyler Wilson

7. FS - Phillip Wilson

8. WR - Quinton Patton

9. OLB - Khaseem Greene

10. QB - Tyler Bray

11. CB - Jordan Poyer

13. WR - Da'Rick Rogers

16. FS - Bacarri Rambo

17. WR - Ryan Swope

19. C/G/OT - Barrett Jones

21. OG - Alvin Bailey

24. SS - Shamarko Thomas

25. OT - Vinston Pinter

29. DE/OLB - John Simon

30. DT - Akeem Spence

NR TE - Dion Sims

NR S - Duke Williams

NR S - Earl Wolff

NR CB/S - Sanders Commings

NR DE - Cornelius Washington

NR NT - Montori Hughes

NR QB - Landry Jones

The reason I would like to see the Panthers gain an extra 6th or 7th round pick is so they can draft Nebraska DE Eric Martin (6'0 3/4", 237) as a 4-3 OLB conversion. What makes this possible is his fantastic change of direction speed in the 3-Cone Drill (6.63) and 20-Yard Shuttle (3.97, faster than Tavon Austin's 4.01), which would have eached ranked 2nd at the Combine among all WR's and DB's. Martain also ran a 4.53-40, with a 1.61-10, but he's more than just speed, he had 17 TFL's, and 8.5 sacks in 2012. As a rookie, he could also serve as an undersized pass rushing specialist, like Bruce Irvin did last year. I think he would be a perfect fit as a backup (eventual starting OLB in a year or 2) OLB for the Panthers.
