2013 NFL Mock Draft (3 Rounds): Carolina Panthers Mock Draft

Three months away from the 2013 NFL Draft, all but two teams have shifted their focus to the offseason and draft.

Many sites including ours will attempt to project how the draft will play out and Kevin Hanson has updated his three-round mock draft this weekend. As we get closer to the draft, the plan is to project all seven rounds.

[Hanson's 2013 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3]

Some of you are fans of the NFL draft and take a big-picture view while others only really care how things will shake out for your particular team. Either way, we got you covered as we will start publishing 32 team posts to go along with our full mock draft for you to be able to follow it whatever way you deem appropriate.

In Hanson's updated 2013 mock draft, here are the Carolina Panthers picks:

14. Carolina Panthers (draft history) - Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State

Despite his size (6-3 and 322 pounds), Hankins has the athleticism and versatility to play all along the defensive line. With the size and ability to stuff the run, Hankins is also disruptive in the passing game as well.

If it weren't for questions about his motor, Hankins could be a top-five pick. Instead he may end up being the third (or worse) defensive tackle off the board.

45. Carolina Panthers (draft history) - DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson

The Panthers could really use a second receiver to step up alongside Steve Smith yet Smith himself will turn 34 years old this offseason.

Hopkins had a monster season with 82 receptions for 1,405 yards and 18 touchdowns. In fact, Nuke scored in all but one game this season.

* The 49ers own the Panthers third-round pick.
