The Carolina Panthers, represented by Panthers' blogger Jaxon select...
RYAN CLADY, OT -- BOISE ST.
While Jaxon didn't offer a specific reason for this pick, I think it goes without saying that the Panthers need help in a lot of places, most importantly the offensive line. Clady slipping to them at #13 is almost a no-brainer.
