Todd McShay was just on ESPN saying we should package a couple later picks and move up in front of the Eagles and Chiefs to select the third or fourth best receiver meaning Odell Beckham or Brandin Cooks. Mentioned that there's a good chance 6-7 WRs are off the board before we pick and that there could be a run on tackles too.

That being said, I am still weary of giving up picks most likely because of the Hurney era and I am not sure that it's Gettleman's style.

Theoretically, if Gettleman and the front office are 100% confident that Beckham Jr or Cooks is "our guy" and fits, would you support moving up and giving up something like a 3rd and 5th rounder to go from the late to early twenties? FWIW, we have met with both Cooks and Beckham Jr.

I'd prefer to trade back, but at this point I'm putting full faith in the staff.  If they feel it's the right move then I'm all for it.  I trust Gettleman knows what he's doing if that's the decision he makes.  I don't anticipate it actually happening though.

We need picks. I don't think we are in a position to mortgage the future.

If there's an opportunity to move up a couple of spots to grab the right guy that's slipping, then by all means go for it.  The most I think we'd go for is to jump up to #26 to leapfrog the Saints since the Saints also have a definite need at WR.  I'm just not sure if that's feasible though since the Browns have #26 and they very well could be targeting a QB with that pick.

No. Idiotic. Don't trade more picks to move up for anybody. You never know how players are going to be in the NFL so you don't give up a lot for them. Sit at 28 and take the best player available. Good thing Gettleman is smarter than that idiot mcshay

I'm saying how would you feel about moving up 7-8 slots. Giving up a couple mid-late round picks isn't going to jeopardize our future if we get our guy and he turns out as expected. Just trying to weigh all options and get some discussion going.

If Cleveland IS targeting a QB, then they may not mind moving back two spots for some compensation since the Saints won't be drafting their targeted QB.

True.  Didn't think about that. 

 

I just think if they're targeting a QB and he's there at #26, they'll take him.  I doubt they'd risk trading down and running the risk of a team jumping up and leapfrogging them by swinging a deal with N.O.

Yeah I could see us leapfrogging the Saints too in the event Latimer and/or Lee are on the board because the Saints must be targeting them as well. Browns could still get their QB at 28.

If we could cut a deal with say Green Bay for spot 21 ahead of Eagles and pick up Cooks(or whomever), if FO feels Cooks is the man and trade 28 and our 3rd rounder would be fine with it. (Note that trade would be tilted slightly in Panthers, but trade value is pretty close)

Because we know so much about his style after one draft.  You can't read anything into a GM's "style" by what he says.  So much smoke and mirrors leading up to the draft.

If it was up to me, the Panthers would never trade up in the draft again.
