Carolina Panthers must land OL depth at No. 114

The later the draft gets, the more teams take a flyer on a guy who might develop. Even though the Carolina Panthers have all their starters returning, adding down the road is always a good idea.

This bears more significance on the offensive line. Carolina looks a little short of reliable depth currently, which needs to change considering starting interior protectors Brady Christensen and Austin Corbett are working their way back from long-term complications.

Andrew Vorhees tore his ACL at the NFL Scouting Combine, making his stock slip. But limiting that slide could be great for a team whose window is down the road.

Using a later-round pick on a running back is a great way to get maximum value from a position group that seems to become more devalued with every passing year. ECU's Keaton Mitchell could be a great option for the Panthers in this scenario. 

His speed and elusiveness will pair well with Miles Sanders and allow the offense versatility. Although those in power might opt for a more physical presence after losing D'Onta Foreman to the Chicago Bears in free agency.
