A Lazy Monday Debate: Who Will Be The First Pick In The Draft?

As you're no doubt aware, today is a holiday. It's also the first day of my new day job. That's a recipe for a discussion post if I've ever seen one.

So let's put on our thinking caps and try to figure out who's going first in the 2011 NFL Draft. Is it Nick Fairley, the Auburn defensive tackle widely linked to the Carolina Panthers? Is it a quarterback like Cameron Newton or Blaine Gabbert? Or is it someone else entirely?

Bonus points (totally worthless) if you can tell me whether the Panthers hold on to the pick or trade out. My money's on holding on, because it's becoming increasingly difficult to find a suitor for the first overall selection.

Debate away!
