Mock Draft Report 5.0: Post-Combine


The NFL Scouting Combine is an important part of the evaluation process, and now that's it's finished, it's interesting to see the impact on first-round projections.

As far as Carolina is concerned, running back Leonard Fournette remains a heavy favorite. Fournette quieted the doubters with a 4.51 40-yard dash at 240 pounds, seemingly cementing his place as a top-10 pick.

Defensive ends Derek Barnett and Solomon Thomas impressed in Indianapolis, and both are nice fits for Carolina's scheme. Thomas has been in the top-five conversation lately, especially after showing his mobility in Combine drills as a 6-foot-3, 273-pounder.

Cornerback Quincy Wilson is a new name in the Mock Draft Report, and Matt Miller mocked him to the Panthers with Fournette and Thomas already off his hypothetical board. Miller considers Wilson, 6-foot-1 and 211 pounds with 32-and-1/4 inch arms, the top cornerback in the draft.
