Official WCG Mock Draft - Pick #9: Carolina Panthers

New, comments

We are chugging along in what has been a very offensive draft so far, with 7 of the first 8 picks on that side of the ball. Next up will be Suffering from Chicago Sports making the selection for the Carolina Panthers

And with the 9th pick in the WCG Mock Draft, the Carolina Panthers select...

Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina

Suffering from Chicago Sports: The Panthers have a pretty shoddy front 4. Any top 10 prospect would have been a good fit here. Coples provides tremendous potential, great size and his greatest risk is becoming fat and lazy. I doubt that with Ron Rivera as his head coach, that would happen. He's right at home in the Carolinas. He's a big fella at 6'6"/285, along the lines of our beloved Peppers. He's athletic and would be one of the 2 BPA's here. Kuechly being the other, but I didn't feel LB was a glaring a need as the D-Line. I would have traded down to accumulate picks as the Panthers need lots of help on defense.

On the clock, picking for the Bills: Acreman20
