- DT: The Panthers used two 2011 third-rounders on this position and wound up with Sione Fua and Terrell McClain. And guess what? They played so well that Carolina needs to look at this spot again.
- WR: Steve Smith is getting up there in age — he'll be 33 in May — and Carolina didn't have another WR with more than 47 catches in 2011. Giving Cam Newton another target could be key.
- CB: Until the Panthers can put someone other than Captain Munnerlyn on the opposite side of the field from Chris Gamble, they're going to struggle keeping opposing offenses off the scoreboard.
