Two Auburn players could experience that feeling this year. Quarterback Cam Newton and defensive lineman Nick Fairley are both in the mix for the first pick.
Carolina owns that top pick, and needs help at quarterback, and on the defensive line, so Newton and Fairley are real possibilities. But, neither player wants to look that far ahead, with the draft more than a month away.
Both players took part in Auburn's Pro Day on Tuesday, with Newton drawing better reviews than he did at the NFL Scouting Combine. Fairley also performed well, keeping the debate alive about which players the Panthers might choose in April.l
