It’s November, and when a team has just two wins or less post-Halloween it’s typically time to start thinking about the upcoming draft. For the Jaguars, Bears, 49ers and Browns, 2017 can’t get here fast enough. But this year’s Carolina Panthers are a certified outlier. Fresh off a big 30-20 win over Arizona, the 2-5 Panthers are still firmly in the NFC playoff mix.

We have the Panthers taking LSU running back Leonard Fournette in our latest mock draft, below, for some Jonathan Stewart insurance (he’s 29 going on 59), but it’s unlikely the Panthers stay in the top 10 here.

Elsewhere in our latest mock, for the first time we have QBs going 1-2 as the Browns tab Notre Dame’s DeShone Kizer and the 49ersreel in Clemson’s Deshaun Watson.
