Cam Newton was the Carolina Panthers' first pick and No. 1 overall in the 2011 NFL draft.

The 2012 NFL draft is right around the corner and the Carolina Panthers are continuing to rebuild after coming off of one of the most successful drafts in team history.

The Carolina Panthers improved by four games in 2011 when they went 6-10 and Cam Newton, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft, became the first rookie to pass for 4,000 yards in a season. Last season, Newton threw 21 touchdown passes and became the first quarterback in NFL history with 14 rushing touchdowns in a single season.

Not surprisingly, Cam Newton was also the 2011 NFL Rookie of the Year.

In the 2012 NFL draft, the Carolina Panthers will shift their focus to the defensive side of the ball, where they were one of the worst teams in the NFL last season.

They are also likely to add a new toy for Cam Newton to play with in the form of a legitimate No. 2 receiver.

Read on for my Carolina Panthers Mock Draft 2.0, with significant changes to the original incarnation.
