Dan Kadar's Latest Three Round Mock

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Kadar has the Panthers filling needs in his first three round mock.

I assume this means Kadar think's Kouandjio's knee will check out fine.

28. Carolina Panthers - Cyrus Kouandjio, Offensive tackle, Alabama Following the retirement of longtime offensive tackle Jordan Gross, the Panthers suddenly have a hole on the left side of the line. There were reports about an arthritic knee with Kouandjio, but the Panthers need to take a chance. Kouandjio is a raw talent who would initially be a strong run blocker.

I'm not so sure Gettleman takes this risk at #28. Hell, Kouandjio's might be off the Panthers board all together. In this scenario I would have to know his knee is no problem.

I guess I like this next pick, though I'm not sure he will be much better than LaFell:

60. Carolina Panthers - Jarvis Landry, Wide receiver, LSU If Carolina passes on a wide receiver in the first round, there should still be plenty available in the second. Landry didn’t time particularly well at the combine, but he’s a do-everything wide receiver.

I was kind of hoping we come away with a #1 receiver in this draft, not a jack of all trades. Landry doesn't have the speed to be much more than a possession receiver.

This last one fills a certain need:

92. Carolina Panthers - Dion Bailey, Safety, Southern California Both Mike Mitchell and Quintin Mikell are free agents for the Panthers, leaving them with few options. Bailey is an inexpensive upgrade who can play in the box.

So is this guy an upgrade over Robert Lester? He has nice size and plays in the box well per one scouting report.

So what do you think Panther fans, do you like these three picks for the Panthers? I'm thinking there is a good amount of risk in those selections, particularly at #28. Landry reminds me a lot of LaFell without the size & bulk. Bailey doesn't offer the speed we like in the secondary.

My picks staying with this scenario would have been Cooks, Moncrief, and McGill. Double dip at WR but with two very different WRs.
