The 2013 NFL Draft is over and it was a good one. This year's draft has featured a few surprises and for the first time in 50 years did not feature a running back being taken in the opening round. As far as surprises go, the Carolina Panthers received one with their first selection and what a beauty of a pick it was; as it plugs a major hole in the defense. The addition of Kawann Short guarantees the Panthers will field one of the most formidable lines in 2013.
Even more surprising were the picks Carolina made in rounds four through six. Their last three picks were not in line with what many felt were their biggest needs and it has been a hot button topic since the middle of round four.
All picks are here along with grades and analysis of each selection, followed by a final grade for Carolina's draft as a whole.
