Carolina Panthers 2013 Draft: Aggregating Report Cards from Around the Web
Star Lotulelei was the Panthers first choice of the 2013 NFL Draft.

When the Carolina Panthers concluded their 2013 draft, experts, analysts and writers alike all presented their personal assessments of the Panthers' selections and graded them accordingly.  While some graded Carolina and the rest of the NFL by the overall strength of this year's draft class, some made their grades on a round-by-round basis.

Bleacher Report covered the Panthers and the rest of the league over the past three days, making grades based on each round, and some writers even provided a final overall grade.  

How did the Carolina Panthers' draft measure up this year?

It wasn't the flashiest class, as their first two picks shored up a defensive weakness the team had been dealing with for a couple of seasons.  Dave Gettleman presented his business model for success and stuck to his guns, giving the Panthers some big bodies to fight in the trenches.  

While the first two picks of Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short were received with applause, the last three raised a lot of concerns, and some were left questioning the motives behind Gettleman and Ron Rivera's decision-making.
