SI.com's Panthers draft needs

Recommended Posts

Carolina Panthers

Current picks: 28, 60, 92, 128, 168, 204, 225

 

Needs: Receiver, offensive tackle, cornerback

 

Well, here’s one good thing to say about the Panthers — they really don’t have to wonder what their primary personnel issue is. Having lost their three main receivers from 2013 (Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn) and replaced them with spackle in the form of Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood, the Panthers and general manager Dave Gettleman are on the clock to resolve this issue — especially since Gettleman basically booted Smith out of town. The Panthers are a potential playoff team, hoping the defense holds fast while the offense is reconstructed.

Though Carolina doesn’t have a selection until the 28th pick, that’s a decent landing spot if a franchise-defining receiver is the goal. USC’s Marqise Lee could still be on the board, and Penn State’s Allen Robinson has an appealing combination of size and speed. The Panthers also have to replace retired left tackle Jordan Gross, and Byron Bell might not be the answer at either side. For a team that prefers power offense, Alabama’s Cyrus Kouandjio would be a great fit, if his medicals don’t scare the team off. And losing Captain Munnerlyn to the Vikings means that a new cornerback is needed. Clemson’s Bashaud Breeland is a smaller corner who plays tough, and that seems to fit the franchise profile.

I think it's funny that the national media (and some local media ie: Marc James) acts like our receiving corps was good last year and beyond replacing

I don't think small CB's fit the Panther profile... yes Captain was short but all the other CB's we have signed are usually tall 6'1" size....

it will be fun to give all these draftniks the finger when we start winning superbowls with a team full of players that we drafted who weren't people we needed.

Yes or No do you think we will make a draft trade?

My gut says no.

Dollar Tree Dave just kinda strikes me as a let the dust settle and stand pat.

Sources in my head tell me that we do make a trade out of the 1st round. Some of these Qbs will be falling and teams at the start of the 2nd will want to jump up. Nice little time to grab a 3rd or 4th round pick and add some depth. Besides any one we take at 28 should still be there past 33.

Great point!  I think that the QBs this year are really going to slide.  I would love it if someone like Bridgewater fell down to the bottom of the first round.  You know cleveland and Jacksonville would be foaming at the mouth to get a hold of him.  There are a bunch of teams in our same boat as far as wanting/being able to trade back, so it could be super intersting on draft weekend to see what happens when our pic comes up.

 

Or G man could have a real man crush on someone, and he's going to get his man, trades be darned!
