7-237: Terry Godwin, WR (Georgia)
Draft Grade: Safe and Sound
Instead of adding shiny new pieces to their offense, the Panthers went a very safe and smart route in this draft. The most glaring pick is the addition of Grier in the third. Cam has been banged up a lot the last few years, and Grier could allow them to not panic when he gets hurt again. When healthy, Cam was playing extremely well last year.
Another aspect to Cam’s health is adding some help on the offensive line. Little was one of the best tackles in the draft that fell a bit. Daley could see work on the right side early.
Their first pick was one that could deliver a pro bowler for years to come. No matter how bad the situation was at FSU, Burns played hard play in and play out. He can cover as well.
