With the 13th overall pick, the Carolina Panthers select Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri
The Panthers could go in a lot of different directions here; WR, CB, OL, DL, or S. I believe developing a better presence up front is most important for this team. When the Panthers made their Super Bowl run they had one of the best DLs in the league. Shutting down the run and putting pressure on the QB will make your secondary look much better than it is. That's why Sheldon Richardson is the best player available for the Carolina Panthers. Richardson is known for his high motor and aggression at the line and is a constant presence in the back field. Having him in the middle with CJ and Hardy rushing from the outside will make Carolina's DL one of the most feared for years to come.
