Carolina Panthers Initial 2014 Round-by-Round Draft Big Board

The NFL draft is a still a few months away, but the Carolina Panthers are doing their part to get ready for it.

With the Senior Bowl behind them and the combine and individual pro days on the horizon, general manager Dave Gettleman and his staff will be reviewing scouting reports and game film in order to draft the best class possible.

Teams generally put together a big board as a means to track prospects, and there are plenty of names on the Panthers board whom they are very interested in acquiring.  These boards can change as a result of a bowl game, as well as performances at the combine and at a prospect's pro day.

Carolina has needs at wide receiver, offensive tackle and the secondary.  With a pick in each round, the Panthers should be able to address all of their needs but will need to decide which position should be filled first.

An argument can be made for any of those positions of need; all of which will impact the team.

The next seven slides will discuss which players could be on the Panthers radar as they enter each round. Keep in mind this is not a mock draft, but an initial big board of this year's draft class.
