NEW ORLEANS -- Coming off a 2-14 season in which they had the NFL's worst offense (196 points, 75 fewer than any other team) and yielded 408 points, the Carolina Panthers can't count the number of holes they must fill. With the top pick in next month's draft, they are leaning toward, well, who knows?
Carolina's most glaring needs are at quarterback, wide receiver, tight end, both lines and in the secondary. Not that there's a particular strength on the roster, either.
"We have another few weeks to do more evaluations and to meet with the players and everything that goes into making this pick," Rivera said.
