Former Buc GM turned ESPN analyst, Mark Dominik, calls in to talk about the Panthers draft, the Panthers roster and predicts the NFC South standings.

On the Panthers off-season: It’s been a hard and long off-season with all the losses they’ve had and that’s one of those growing pains and part of the team getting a little older in certain areas. My favorite pick was their 3rd rounder, Trai Turner. He’s a massive man, really powerful and creates movement at the line of scrimmage. I think he’ll pop right in there and help that right guard spot. I don’t know if Nate Chandler and Byron Bell are the tackles of the future, but there’s really nothing else out there, so they’re going to have to go with it.

On Cam Newton: He took a tremendous step last year, in terms of working at becoming a pro and it all starts with the quarterback. If he continues to do that, Carolina will be just fine.

On Kelvin Benjamin: You love the size and he does compete well. He’s got to continue to work on getting in and out of his routes a little bit better and he’s got to continue to finish catching the ball. Kelvin can go through moments where he can just take over a game and dominate and there’s a chance he’ll drop a ball and you’ll just scratch your head. He’s got some work to do still, but you can’t coach that size and you can’t coach competitiveness and those are two traits that he brings that are really good and much needed.
