The #1 Pick in the 2013 NFL Draft Will Be...

There is a lot of speculation going on right now regarding who will be the first player picked in the 2013 NFL Draft.  There are a whole lot of scenarios and each one could end up in a different player picked at the #1 position.  Let's take a look...

Right now the four worst teams in the NFL are the Chiefs, Jaguars, Browns, and Panthers.  Depending on who beats who and how the schedule works out one of those four teams will get the pick.  Let's take a look at who may be the selection depending on which team ends up #1.

  • If the Chiefs get the #1 pick- they should draft a Quarterback.  Either Geno Smith or Matt Barkley, whoever they like more.
  • If the Jaguars get the #1 pick- they should draft a Quarterback, but will likely draft the best player available instead.  This not only includes Smith and Barkley as options, but brings Manti Teo, Jarvis Jones, and Luke Joeckel into play as serious options as well.
  • If the Browns get the #1 pick- they should draft the best overall player.  This means they would select either linebacker- Manti Teo or Jarvis Jones.
  • If the Panthers get the #1 pick- they should draft the best defensive player.  This would make Teo and Jones options but also defensive tackle Star Lotuleli.
All in all, one of the scenarios above will happen.  But which one? We shall see... and thus is the beauty of the 2013 NFL Draft.

2013 Draft Needs: Carolina Panthers

The Panthers are a team that sadly I have to see play every Sunday. How can a team with Cam Newton at QB be *this* bad?

The struggle is real but it is simple actually. Carolina's problems boil down to two things:

(1) An inconsistent offense with no featured running game

(2) Inability to stop the run.

Though Carolina is improving on defense you have to say this teams main issues are defensive.

With no further adieu here are the Panthers 2013 NFL Draft needs:

(1) Defensive tackle
(2) Cornerback
(3) Wide Reciever
