Carolina Panthers

It’s time to take care of Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton as he tries to become more of a pocket passer. I’m not calling him Tom Brady just yet but he is better in that regard and the Panthers are pretty bad at left tackle. Miami Hurricanes left tackle Ereck Flowers is a big, tall, long dancing bear that has the athleticism and technique to protect Newton’s blindside.

Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore Ravens running back Justin Forsett had a great year this past year with his contract expiring. I still don’t think the Ravens are in love with him so the big contract probably won’t happen. So the Ravens pick Georgia Bulldogs running back Todd Gurley, who will check out medically by the time the draft comes around and reminds them of Jamal Lewis.

Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys are running the 4-3 these days and don’t have a pass-rushing defensive end. Tigers Defensive end Markus Golden at 6’3″, 260 pounds fits the bill here to come of the edge for them. Golden’s speed around the corner is underrated because he played through a hamstring pull but he can get it.
