2012 NFL Mock Draft: Could Devon Still Go At No. 8?

SB Nation's latest 2012 NFL mock draft has the Carolina Panthers picking Devon Still at No. 8. The title of the draft aptly notes that while all, or nearly all, prognosticators agree that while Andrew Luck will be the first overall pick in the draft, there isn't much agreement after that. In particular, by the time you get down to No. 8, no one really knows what's going to happen. Still has been the most common pick in that spot, but other mock drafts have him in the middle or bottom of the first round. Anyway, here's what SB Nation has to say.

Carolina's run defense bleed yards in buckets. This is a thin class of defensive tackles, and Still is the top player at the position ... for now. The Penn State product has the strength to bolster a soft middle for the Panthers.

Still will have to maintain his position for several months. It seems unlikely he would go higher than No. 8.
