Kyle’s Pick: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State
Brandin Cooks projects as a Randall Cobb or Victor Cruz kind of player. He is extremely explosive and has game changing abilities. This pick gives Cam Newton a great new threat and opens up more of the field for Greg Olsen.

Dan’s Pick: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State
Steve Smith only has a few good years left and the Panthers lack dynamic players at the receiver position. Benjamin is a bit raw, but at 6-foot-6 and 235 pounds, his tremendous size and potential upside makes him an intriguing prospect for a team desperate for receiver help.
