NFL Draft analysts, Josh Norris, from and NBC Sports joined the Mac Attack to discuss the Panthers options in next week’s draft.

On Morgan Moses: He’s sort of grown on me. At the beginning I was focused on his terrible technique. I don’t love him now, but he’s someone who doesn’t have to win by bending at the knees or absorbing or redirecting, because he’s just so massive.

On Wide Receivers: I don’t think Davante Adams is worth 28, at all. I think second round is more likely. Lattimer is interesting. Teams love guys with big bodies who can run fast in a straight line. Lattimer struggles to separate on the ground, in terms of his breaks, but this guy can create a sliver of separation at the catch point and he’s someone who rarely drops it. He is extremely reliable. I expect Lattimer to go ahead of Adams, right now, but I think they’re going by the end of the 2nd round.

On Josh’s dream scenario: I’m going to go with Jimmie Ward, the safety from Northern Illinois, but I doubt he’s going to be there. He has some Kenny Vaccaro type skills and we saw how well Vacarro played with the Saints.

On the cornerback need: They need someone to fill Captain Munnerlyn’s shoes in the slot. I think Jason Verrett from TCU, would be outstanding. Sure he’s 5’9″, 190 pounds and people will pigeon-hole him, but I don’t think there’s a corner who plays the ball better in contested situations.
