After Mac got off to a rough start, he spoke with NFL Draft analyst from Rotoworld and NBC Sports, Evan Silva, about the Panthers options coming up in just over a week, focusing on the offensive tackle and wide receiver needs and what wide receiver could be a good fit with Cam.

On the Panthers first round pick: I think you’re almost obligated to draft a lineman at 28, because the way that your line shapes up right now, I think your offense could be torpedoed, it’s that bad. I feel like you’re almost locked in to an offensive lineman, because you don’t pick for another 30-something seclections and you have no idea who is going to be available at pick 60.

On Wide Receivers: I think the Panthers are going to come away, probably, with two wide receivers and they might sign two undrafted free agent wide receivers and those guys are going to be serious competitors for roster spots and it’s very possible they could start two rookie wide receivers. You probably end up taking a wide receiver in the second round, although I don’t think it would be crazy to wait to the third round if you spot great value.
