2013 Draft: Aftermath

Carolina got bigger, and then at the end, a little smaller.

It was a necessarily utilitarian draft, and that's fine.  It was, for the most part, a value draft except for Ed Kugbila (who wasn't really worth a 4th).

But, consequently, it fell with different needs than I might have assumed.

For instance, TE, S, CB were spots I felt could use some help; they were unmet needs.  S, CB have bodies, but TE might lack a bit.  I felt like an OT with ability would've been smart with things in flux past 2013.

In summary- the team went from one good, aging DT to a three man rotation and a potentially very  strong front seven overall.  They compromised on the OL to get higher talent at lower top level experience, and then they got two guys who'll probably be ready to play a larger role in 2014.
