  1. Butler was a headscratcher, even at the time. Made absolutely no sense to me. And then 2 and 3 were reaches, despite their claiming otherwise, to replace Norman. Bradberry panned out and is a good quality starter, everyone else sucks.

    Carolina Panthers Day 1 Draft Grade

    If Guice falls to us in round 2... I'd love Josh Adams, but I can't see taking him until round 5.
  3. I'd leave safety till our 2nd pick in round 3 and take DeShon Elliot. Guy is a stud.

    On the record, pick 24

    Definitely like Ridley more than Moore, had Moore as my #3 WR, borderline 2nd round talent. I just think we already have a lot of threats like him on the roster, Ridley would have been better, IMO. For the record, I didn't like the Cmac or Samuel picks last year either, so take that for what its worth. (Wanted Malik Hooker at 8 and just didnt think Samuel made sense after taking Cmac.) I wanted Ridley and I'm not going to hide that. But I understand that draft analysis is a fuging crap shoot. You talk about professionals, but as soon as Mayfield went #1 overall, their entire boards were shot. They got like 5-6 picks right at most, there are simply too many variables. And first round picks have a bust rate of roughly 50%. That WR the Jags drafted #5 overall a few years back was supposed to be the next big thing. Jake Locker and Blaine Gabbert were better than Cam Newton because they were "pro-ready." John Ross was great because he was just fast. Draft analysts get paid a lot to do what is basically a guessing game and they are wrong more often than they are right. That goes for armchair analysts as well. Everyone is trying to make educated guesses. I hope Steve Smith is right. I hope Moore is an amazing WR. I will say finding out Carolina had him high before the combine has made me a bit more okay with the pick. Having a dude with mediocre tape shoot up the boards because of a fantastic combine just makes me nervous as hell. Give me a dude with great tape any day. Moore did fantastic in Maryland with jack poo throwing the ball to him at QB. I saw him play in person- my family lived close by Annapolis, MD because my dad taught at the Naval Academy. He's a freak athlete.

    Division Rivals 1st Picks

    Bucs got the best d-lineman in the draft, great pick. Honestly don't feel threatened by Tampa, they're more like a little brother at this point. The Saints gave up a first rounder just to get Davenport, lols @ them. They had a hell of a draft last year though, still will be a force, just don't like giving up draft capital to go get Davenport when I bet you he's still there when they picked anyway. The Falcons got, IMO, the best WR in the draft to pair with Julio. Yuck. That combo is going to be hard to stop, and I think it makes it even more imperative that we go with someone in the secondary on Day 2. I would not be surprised if we went OL/S/CB in some order for our next three picks.
  6. If we could pair Guice with Cmac and get him in R2... dear god.

    Carolina Panthers Select Dj Moore

    To be fair, Mayock had Moore as his #1, he just thought Carolina liked Ridley better. Also Mel Kiper once said this about Jimmy Clausen: “If Jimmy Clausen is not a successful quarterback in the NFL, I’m done. That’s it. I’m out.” Replied McShay: “What is your time frame, Mel? When do we make that assessment?” Kiper: “I want eight years.” McShay: “It will only take three years, Mel. We can tell inside three years.” Kiper: “I want eight.”

    That is at least good to hear, people who go big on a WR just because of combine performance always make me nervous. Much rather take someone because I liked the tape they showed against actual competition, instead of just doing drills.

    Equally as dumb as those that always see the sunshine. Panthers have a good history of first round picks, Butler is the only real bust that comes to mind and he simply hasn't been given a shot. So I hope I'm wrong here, just would have been a lot happier with Ridley.

    The idea that one has to always be a slavering idiot that cheers whatever moves Carolina makes is so ridiculous to me. We're allowed to disagree when picks are made, and people who question someone's fandom because they don't like a guy are just idiots.

    After the combine. The "actual" draft analysts, none of which got more than like 5 picks correct, always over-value players with great combines. Ridley was doing things against elite competition and he just always gets open. Ridley and Julio is going to be a mountain of a problem. I trust James to all but erase Ridley at least at first when we play them, but then who's left to cover JJ?

    My issue with Moore is solely that Calvin Ridley was available and Ridley was far and away the best WR in the draft. Moore and Sutton are both close IMO, but neither hold a candle to Ridley. If Ridley was gone, I was fine with Moore if we thought we had to take a WR in the first round, though I preferred trading back. He's simply not a first round talent. He's not even really second round, late second, maybe. Smitty can say what he wants. Smith though Kealoha Pilares was a good WR. Hope I'm wrong, but I think we'll regret this one for a long time to come, especially since Ridley went to Atlanta.
  14. Lmao and now the Falcons get an actual good WR.
