Who Are the Players Selected Most for the Carolina Panthers in Mock Drafts?

This is the season for mock drafts and we take a look at who is the most popular selections for the Carolina Panthers with the help of the Mock Draft Muncher.

The Carolina Panthers have six selections in the upcoming NFL Draft, including 30th overall in the first round. The Panthers do not have many holes to fill on their roster and being later in the first round it makes their selection that much more unpredictable.'s Mock Draft Muncher takes a look at 40 different mock drafts and compiles the numbers to get a consensus of who is the popular picks for the Panthers.

In the first round, over a quarter of the mock drafts has the Panthers selecting a defensive end, with seven selecting Emmanuel Ogbah and six selecting Kevin Dodd. Second on the list is offensive tackle with nine mock drafts: Jason Spriggs selected four times, Taylor Decker three times, and Jack Conklin twice.

Name (School) Position Times Selected
Emmanuel Ogbah (Oklahoma State) DE 7
Kevin Dodd (Clemson) DE 6
Jason Spriggs (Indiana) OT 4
Taylor Decker (Ohio State) OT 3
Will Fuller (Notre Dame) WR 2
Jack Conklin (Michigan State) OT 2
Mackensie Alexander (Clemson) CB 2
Eli Apple (Ohio State) CB 2

There isn't as much consensus in the second round though as 11 mock drafts have 11 different players selected for the Panthers. However, this is the third mock draft Eli Apple has been the choice for the team after he was picked in the first round in two mock drafts.
