CB -- Carolina's cornerbacks were beat up in the Super Bowl and after the season the team lost starter Reggie Howard via free agency and cut nickel back Terry Cousin. They've added Artrell Hawkins, but don't be surprised if Carolina's first-round pick is a corner or receiver.
WR -- Carolina needs a speed receiver to go along with Steve Smith. Muhsin Muhammad isn't getting any younger and the team needs to add another playmaker to the mix to go along with Ricky Proehl. The team lacked a solid fourth receiver last season.
FS -- Starter Deon Grant left via free agency so expect the Panthers to address this position at some point in the draft.
OT -- A backup for Jordan Gross and someone to take Adam Meadows' spot in a couple of years would be nice. G -- Carolina has lost its two starting guards in the offseason but has brought in people to address those needs. Still, the Panthers may exercise a pick here.
