Carolina Panthers: What to expect?


Carolina Panthers: What to expect?

The draft is here. Currently the Panthers draft at 14 and will they stay or trade down. We probably

won’t know till we’re on the clock. Unless players such as Star Lotulelei DT from Utah drops to them

then they move back.

A half dozen teams behind them want to move up and have multiple picks to trade. A lot of talk about

Tavon Austin WR from , WVU however he probably Gone by 14. Latest scenario has the Jets using the

13th pick they will pick up in the Revis trade on a receiver and likes Austin. They will have the

9th , 13th, 39th , 72nd and 106th picks so they make a lot of moves. St. Louis, Minnesota, Atlanta,

Baltimore and San Francisco will consider upward moves.

So back to the Panthers and here goes.

14th – Carolina trades the 14th pick to Minnesota for the 25th and the 83rd Picks. Minnesota uses

the 14th pick on LB Alex Ogletree, Georgia and Carolina uses the 25th pick on Sylvester Williams DT, UNC.

 44th pick – Carolina drafts Teron Armstead OT, Arkansas Pine Bluff (moving up most boards,

however a little back concerns.)

 83rd pick – Carolina drafts Stedman Bailey WR, WVU (Geno Smith’s favorite receiver.)

108th pick – Carolina drafts B.W. Webb CB, William and Mary(good Cover corner with quick feet.)

148th pick – Carolina drafts Earl Wolff S, North Carolina State,(could possibly start early in his career.)

182nd. pick – Carolina drafts Philip Lutzenkirchen TE, Auburn (Cam’s TE from the Championship year.)

This pick could also be an offensive guard.

Look for Carolina to try to pick up a 7th round pick from San Francisco For a future pick.
