Panthers Not Totally Sold on Taking a D-linemen?

While most of the mock drafts by national pundits have the Panthers taking a defensive lineman with the top pick, that is not necessarily the thinking within the organization according to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer.

Despite a need at defensive tackle, the Panthers’ decision-makers are not sold on the idea of drafting a D-lineman at No. 1, a pair of league sources said this week.

As general manager Marty Hurney stated at the Senior Bowl in January, the Panthers want an impact player – and health issues surrounding a couple of the top defensive linemen have called into question how much of an impact they might make.

    I don’t agree either – we need a solid QB, and with a #1 pick, we can certainly pick up and train a franchise QB
