Panthers' draft spots announced

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The NFL today released the full order of picks for next month's draft.

The Carolina Panthers don't have a first-round selection, trading what turned out to be the 17th overall choice to San Francisco in order to pick defensive end Everette Brown in the 2009 second round. The Panthers also landed running back Mike Goodson in the '09 fourth round as part of the deal.

The Panthers have eight picks -- their selections for Rounds 2, 3, 4 and 7, along with a sixth-round selection acquired from Oakland, plus two compensatory picks in the sixth round and one in the seventh.

The compensatories were awarded this week for the Panthers losing three players to other team last year as unrestricted free agency signees -- offensive linenemen Geoff Hangartner (Buffalo) and Frank Omiyale (Chicago). and kick returner Mark Jones (Tennessee).

The Panthers traded away their fifth- and sixth-round selectios, respectively, last year for defensive tackles Tank Tyler (Kansas City) and Louis Leonard (Cleveland).

According to the NFL, the Panthers' picks look like this:

Round 1 -- Traded to San Francisco (17th overall).

Round 2 -- 48th overall (16th in round)

Round 3 -- 78th (15th)

Round 4 -- 112th (14th)

Round 5 -- Traded to Kansas City (144th, 13th)

Round 6 -- Acquired from Oakland (175th, 6th)

 Traded to Cleveland (186th, 17th)

 Compensatory (202nd, 33rd)

 Compensatory (204th, 35th)

Round 7 -- 223rd (16th)

 Compensatory (249th, 42nd)

(Note: NFL.com originally listed the Panthers' second-round pick as No. 47 in an online report last month, which the Observer cited).

this is great news.3 6 rounders and 2 7ths.don gregory must be licking his chops.he found schwartz and bernadeau both in the 7th round and i think bernadeu will start at r guard next year.this should address our depth issues at several positions and we can be more liberal about drafting projects.

Captain Munnerlyn was a seventh round pick too... not too shabby at all.

I say we get Tim Tebow if he's available in the 2nd round. Matt Moore will probably be the starter next season and he needs some competition for the future. Tebow will take a couple years to develop and learn how to play in our offense, but he will put in the effort. Trading for McNabb wouldn't be a bad idea either.

Tebow....for real...Dammit people...he is jeff king with a 2o yard pass in his bag of tricks! enough of the craziness...forget that tony pike garbage too! brian kelly benched him last year because of interceptions! the cats better draft two receivers with their first 2 picks and then get 2 defensive end projects, a backup center, a guard and one db!

Tebow will be gone by the 48th pick. The Panthers need to focus on a WR unless they find one in FA before the draft. No. 2 is NOT on the roster. TO is available. He has been a good citizen the past few years and he is too big for Smitty to punch out. Bring him in and see what he has in left in the tank. Also, bring back Moose. In a three receiver set that would give Moore some targets.

Get Armanti Edwards!

Armanti Edwards?! Get real, he's a DII version of Mike Vic. He'll never start in the NFL at QB. Kick returner or WR maybe....

Dan LeFevour (Central Michigan) - heck of an arm an accurate passer, fast, touch, deep, crossing routes, he can do it all...

I am not suprised at all that they would consider Tebow. He is a Christian Man and the locals around here would eat that up. They would gain more viewers for that reason alone. I do not think that is the route that we need to take. If you want a QB that would complete our offensive line, Eagles say they will listen to offers on McNabb.

there should be some good wideouts and def linemen left in the 2nd and 3rd round,starter quality players.i hope fox isnt stupid enough to draft tebow.you dont draft a career backup at #2.somebody please keep fox out of the war room.leave the drafting to don gregory.

Posted by: raydaz | Mar 25, 2010 1:09:31 PM

we can now afford to draft a kicker in the later rounds with all these late draft picks,and get some special teams aces.

Posted by: raydaz | Mar 25, 2010 1:11:31 PM

Please don't trade next year's first rounder again!

Posted by: Mike | Mar 25, 2010 1:12:29 PM

Draft Trent Guy from Lousiville!!!!!!

Posted by: moscott | Mar 25, 2010 3:34:16 PM

I doubt Tebow will last to 48. It's sort of lame to dictate who you'll pick at 48! haha

Mike, they just might do that! It has worked! There is not an Otah nor a Brown in this years draft and they both have a year and two under their belt. So take your chances, just as long as we keep our 2nd and 3rd choices. They may have to make a player trade along with it. But if they did I would hope that the 2nd and 3rd goes nowhere. All in all, draft day will be exciting. Go Panthers!!! Full support here. Back the Panthers up, Panther Fans! Lets do this! The organization needs us. And we need them no denying. Go Panthers!!!

I hope the fans do not take this as racist because it is really not meant that way. We have to many white boys on the team already meaning not enough team speed. It is why teams are often able to "catch up" to us in the fourth quarter.

Armanti Edwards is a Division 1 player and if I recall Steve McNair came from a small school and he had a good career. Jerry Rice came from a small school best WR ever. Armanti Edwards is a better passer than Vic will ever be.
