Josh Doctson to the Carolina Panthers?

The Carolina Panthers will head into an NFL Draft for the first time in years not needing a wide receiver, however as all Panthers fans now, what the Panthers need doesn't necessarily matter. The Panthers are doing to draft by best players available approach, not by need.

By using that logic, it's possible TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson ends up a Carolina Panther in the 1st round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Docston had a great year at TCU in 2015 with 79 catch for 1,329 yards and 14 touchdowns. He had 34 career touchdowns in his career at TCU and is a speedy receiver that Panthers really don't need.

However is Doctson does come to Carolina, think of the receiving corps Panthers QB Cam Newton would have at his disposal. His "twin towers" Kelvin Benjamin and Devin Funchess, speedsters Ted Ginn Jr and Philly Brown, tight-end Greg Olson and Doctson. I'm not sure there would be another team in the league that could boast a receiving core of the same caliber.

The Draft is still a long ways away, and a lot is certain to change, but if Doctson is a Panther in 2016, it would make the NFL's highest scoring offense in 2015 incredibly more dynamic and dangerous.
