New, comments

You better keep up with these visits to prepare for the CSR Pick the Panthers Draft Contest. Last year the Panthers met with most of their picks during the lead up to the draft.

The converted linebacker is drawing middle-round grades from draft analysts. He was named second-team All-Pac-12 Conference. Bailey ran the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds at the NFL scouting combine and bench pressed 225 pounds 14 times at his campus Pro Day workout. At the combine, he had a 34-inch vertical leap.

Conventional wisdom says the Panthers will target a mid-round CB provided the first couple of rounds go as planned. Bailey isn't a speedster but more of an in the box safety? Could he put on a little weight and move back to LB? Regardless of what they plan to do with him keep an eye on him in the 4th or 5th round.
