Have a source in the NFL who works for a franchise that made the playoffs last season. Spoke to him a bit on the phone today to hear about any rumors going on leading up to the draft, and picked up on a couple golden ones on the NFC South.
The source told me that it appears that the Panthers are looking at linebacker at the 9th pick and would be pleased to see Melvin Ingram there, but it looks like they surely like Luke Kuechly out of Boston College. In the event that both are gone, which isn't likely, I was told not to be surprised if they end up going with a wideout, most likely Malcolm Floyd of Notre Dame, with the goal being to get more weapons for Cam Newton.
As for Tampa, there is no doubt that their top two targets are RB Trent Richardson out of Alabama and CB Morris Claiborne of LSU. But, it looks as if the Bucs fear that both could be gone when they pick at five, with Richardson likely going to the Browns and four, with Minnesota aiming for Claiborne at three. It would surely make things interesting, but where Tampa would go from there is tough. My source tells me that they may end up looking to trade down, which makes sense, but if they can't find a trade partner, Kuechly or Ryan Kalil would likely be the pick.
