On March 18, Panthers coach John Fox, defensive coordinator Mike Trgovac and defensive line coach Sal Sunseri were in Gainesville, Fla., to watch Florida defensive end Derrick Harvey, a player many mock drafts have the Panthers taking with the 13th overall pick.
Meanwhile, in the Northeast, general manager Marty Hurney, offensive line coach Dave Magazu and director of college scouting Don Gregory were taking a closer look at Boston College offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus. He's considered a low first-round or early second-round pick.
The Panthers also sent many representatives to Tennessee to see Vanderbilt tackle Chris Williams, a player that could be the Panthers' first round selection and a player who they think could be a cornerstone for years to come.
A couple weeks ago, the Panthers were in Idaho scouting another top tackle prospect Ryan Clady. Clady figures to be gone by the time the Panthers pick at 13, leading some to speculate that the team is entertaining the idea of moving up in the draft to ensure that they get one of the four top tackles.
