Panthers Top 10 Draft Prospects for Each Round

Frederick Breedon

Somewhere between trying to research the top 300 prospects and seeing the same five prospects mocked over and over, I have tried to whittle it down to 70 players for those interested beyond the first round. In my pre-draft post last year I covered the first two rounds and landed both picks correctly so why not go for 7! (Because that is shear luck, that's why.) So this year, presented below are 10 unique draft scenarios that combine the Carolina Panthers top needs with player value. In the following 10 draft scenarios, some players fall and others may be considered reaches but no player is represented in more than one draft and I think all are feasible. The initial number is how I have ranked the prospects and blue highlighted names are players that the Panthers have shown particular interest in. Which of the first five mock drafts do you think is most likely?
