Chicago Bears Fans 2012 Mock Draft, #9 – Carolina Panthers

2011 #1 Pick Cam Newton scored alot of points for the Panthers last year, now can they get someone who can tackle somebody?

Previous Picks:
1)Indianapolis – QB Andrew Luck, Stanford
2)Washington – QB Robert Griffin III, Baylor
3)Minnesota – OT Matt Kalil, Southern Cal
4)Cleveland – RB Trent Richardson, Alabama
5)Tampa Bay – CB Morris Claiborn, Louisiana State
6)St. Louis – WR Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State
7)Jacksonville – WR Michael Floyd, Notre Dame
8)Miami – QB Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M

The Panthers could not stop anybody last season, every game they played in was like an arcade game. Cam Newton proved in his rookie season that he can be a winning QB in this league, now Ron Rivera should trun his attention to the defense—and more specifically, his pass rush. As a disciple of Buddy Ryan;s 46 defense in Chicago and Jim Johnson’s attacking defense in Philly, you know he wants to get some more guys who can get into the backfield. Maybe if Floyd or Blackmon was available here, you take a long look at one of them—but if they are both off the board, expect a defensive lineman to go here.
