All eyes are on the Super Bowl this 7 days. If the Carolina Panthers are going to make their 3rd physical appearance in the big game any time shortly, they’ll have to carry in a whole lot of support for an aging and below-carrying out defense. 7-9 could be the new norm if they really do not. In a new 7-round mock draft by Luke Easterling at Draft Wire, the crew employs four of its draft picks on defensive potential customers, addressing wants at all 3 concentrations of the defense.

Here’s a look at who he has the Panthers selecting with just about every of their six draft picks this 12 months.

The Panthers completed the 2018 period with just 35 sacks and Mario Addison accounted for 9 of them. That means even if Julius Peppers will come back again for 1 much more round, the crew desperately wants to include much more expertise on the edge. Sweat (6-foot-6, 245 lbs .) was a standout for the duration of Senior Bowl 7 days and posted 22.5 sacks and 30 tackles for a loss around the very last two seasons with Mississippi State.
