Carolina Panthers

Mock Draft Report 2.0


This installment of the Mock Draft Report reveals a whole mess of projections for Carolina, which isn't at all surprising.

We've got two wide receivers, an offensive tackle, a tight end, a defensive end and a linebacker – yes, a linebacker – featured.

Wideouts Christian Kirk and James Washington are looking like names we'll see quite a bit as we inch closer to draft day, but Boise State linebacker Leighton Vander Esch is a pick that raises some eyebrows. The analyst who made that projection – Mike Tanier of Bleacher Report – argued that the Panthers need "an eventual replacement for Thomas Davis and an insurance policy against Luke Kuechly absences."

We also saw some love for the small school prospects. University of Texas at San Antonio defensive end Marcus Davenport (6-foot-6, 255 pounds) and South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert (6-foot-5, 255 pounds) are both intriguing talents with ideal measurables.
