Dareus and Gabbert Odds on Favorite to be the #1 Overall Pick

Carolina Growl reports that Marcell Dareus and Blaine Gabbert are now the odds on favorites to be the #1 overall pick for the Panthers.

If only Andrew Luck had decided to turn pro, life would have been so much easier for the Carolina Panthers. Luck certainly would have been the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, the franchise quarterback the Panthers so desperately coveted. But Luck’s decision to stay at Stanford for another year has muddied the NFL draft and, with no clear cut favorite at the top, has left experts guessing as to who the Panthers will select on April 28. The current odds-on favorites are Alabama defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert, with support dwindling for Auburn quarterback Cam Newton and virtually disappearing altogether for his college teammate defensive tackle Nick Fairley. Some others websites list LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson, Clemson defensive end DaQuan Bowers or Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green as the best available player in the draft, although it’s hard to find anyone bold enough to pick them first overall in a mock draft.
