Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Although the Panthers gave up a first-round pick in 2010 to get him, going up to get defensive end Everette Brown was good move. Not only did it fill a need, there's no way he should have slipped all the way to No. 43 in the opinion of the Panthers' brass, which had a first-round grade on him. A closer look at the Panthers' picks: Round 2/43 -- Everette Brown, DE, 6-2, 256, Florida State...The Panthers wanted him so badly they traded next year's first-round pick to San Francisco in order to get him at No. 43. (The Panthers also picked up a fourth-round pick this year). He provides a long-term replacement for Julius Peppers, who has said he wants out of Carolina but is the team's franchise player. The Panthers believe Brown will pep up their pass rush. - by The Sports Xchange
