The NFL draft is about 48 hours away and we still don’t know who the heck the Panthers are going to take with the top pick. Apparently Panthers general manager Marty Hurney and head coach Ron Rivera still don’t know either. If they do, they aren’t tipping their hand.
Both Hurney and Rivera met with the media Tuesday to discuss the upcoming draft. The Panthers have the number one pick but do not have a pick in the second round. The traded that pick last year to move up to select former Greenwood and Appalachian State star Armanti Edwards. Hurney said today the organization still believes Edwards will be a contributor on the team. He was inactive most of last season.
Most of the alleged draft experts expect the Panthers to select former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton with the first pick.
