During the past few weeks, the Carolina Panthers have been reviewing scouting reports, watching game tape and attending pro days in order to determine which players in this year's rookie class will best help their team. Many draft experts and analysts have done similar research, taking into account the team's biggest needs and who will be available when the Panthers are on the board.
Which players would be perfect fits in Carolina?
While the question sparks serious debate, there is no doubt every player mentioned would bring something to the table and help turn the Panthers into a contender. Since the first two rounds are usually the most heavily mocked, it stands to reason that a lot of argument is generated regarding the first two picks.
The Panthers have several needs, and there are many players in this draft that can help resolve them. Unfortunately, some of those perfect players may not be available on the board when it becomes Carolina's turn.
However, here are some players in no particular order that would fit perfectly with Carolina based on need and the talents they possess. Not all of them are first round picks. The selections were based on team needs and what the individual talents can bring to the Panthers.
