Player Jeff Otah, OT, Pittsburgh
Team Carolina Panthers
Pick Round 1, Selection 19 (19 Overall)
Stats Ht: 6-6.5   Wt: 341   40: -  
We've said for some time that Carolina wanted to go back to their power running game and they'll get help doing that with the selection of Otah. The tough-minded offensive lineman was projected by many to play on the right side but he could be moved to the left side. If Otah plays on the left side, Jordan Gross would move over to the right side where he might be better off playing.
