It's hard to find much fault with what the Carolina Panthers have done with their first-round picks in 2011 and 2012. 2011 yielded QB Cam Newton, who earned AP offensive rookie of the year honors and appears destined to serve as the franchise QB for the time being. In 2012, they landed LB Luke Kuechly, who landed the defensive rookie of the year honors, making good on his promise as a tackling machine -- his 164 total tackles were 61 more than the second-most on the team in 2012. In an effort to help Kuechly and his linebacking crew out, the team may be using their first-round pick this offseason on a defensive tackle.
