Draft off to flying start

The NFL draft isn't an hour old and we've already got some surprises. None of them involve the Panthers, though, who are still scheduled for the 59th pick in the second round. In other words, no news on a potential deal iinvolving Julius Peppers.

But the Jets-Browns trade that sends quarterback Mark Sanchez to New York, then the Raiders' stunning selection of Maryland WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (not Michael Crabtree? Not Jeremy Maclin?) has set things up for an interesting night. -- David Scott

Be nice to see the Panthers get a little more agressive and jump into this and make some noise.

Why?-Apparantly nobody wants Peppers so it looks like we are just going to be stuck with each other-I sure wish he would realize that & make some adjustments in his contract to free up some $$-we need some depth

So i guess we aren't going to get to see any Panther action in the draft. I love draft day, the Panthers are usually wheeling & dealing outta control. Its like the first day of the new season. So far we haven't seen a single thing from the Panthers, whether its lack of interest w/ a clearly disgruntled Peppers or a lack of compensation, or a little bit of both who knows. Maybe we'll make some moves in the second round. There is still plenty of first round talent left, LETS GO PANTHERS!!!!!!
