Pity the Carolina Panthers. They won just twice in 16 games last season to earn the first overall choice of the 2011 NFL draft. But there isn’t a Sam Bradford waiting there for them. There isn’t a Peyton Manning or an Orlando Pace. Even the Ndamukong Suhs and Matt Ryans are nowhere to be found at the top of this draft board. The Panthers have the first overall selection in a draft that has no consensus first overall choice. Some teams have Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green at the top of the board. Others have LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson. Still others have Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller. Unfortunately for the Panthers, they have a pressing need at quarterback. When Andrew Luck decided to return to Stanford for his senior season in 2011, Carolina lost out on a potential franchise quarterback of its own. If the Panthers are to address the need at quarterback with either Cam Newton or Blaine Gabbert in this draft, they will have to skip over more talented players at other positions. But if you don’t have a quarterback in the NFL, you don’t have a chance. The Panthers are one of eight teams that will be staring at the quarterback board in the first round. So expect a run of passers early in this draft, starting with the Panthers. But pencil in Green at No. 1 on the annual Top 100 of The Dallas Morning News. The Top 100 is compiled based on conversations with NFL general managers, personnel directors, pro and college coaches and scouts. This is not a mock draft. Teams will skip around the board on draft day to make selections that fit their needs. No., player Pos. School 1, A.J.
