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)

Not Gettleman's style.

 

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.

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.


I don't think I'd do it unless one of the big OTs slid for some reason. With our core our window is just opening. No need to panic like the Falcons seem to be doing.

I'd hate to give up a 3rd in this year's draft.  I have a feeling we might be kicking ourselves for that one when we see who's still on the board at #92.

I agree, but if they believe Cooks or Beckham is that big of a difference maker, I would be okay with it. (afterall, Huddle says we must always agree with Gettleman because he has a plan). That being said, I don't think Gettleman will trade up or back in the draft. He doesn't seem to be a believer in it. Last year he seemed to turn in the card before the Panthers were even on the clock, I expect it again this year. Right now its just good "they pushed the draft into May and we have two more weeks to kill" idle draft speculation

I remember reading that he was literally laughing at other teams trying to trade with us on draft day last year.

 

 

Plus, it doesn't seem very smart with how deep this draft is, and Gettleman is more smarts than emotions, unlike his predecessor.

 

 

That said, I could see us maybe giving up a 6th or 7th to jump up a few spots to grab a guy.

No, No, No.

 

The only player that I would have moved up for is Evans, but now, he is way out of our reach.

 

Let it play out, and if there isn't anyone there worth the pick to us, I'm all over trading back and getting more 2nd's.

Gettleman seems like a very smart and prudent GM. I doubt he would move up, not very far up either, for a WR when this draft class is just filled with talent at that position.

I wouldn't hold my breath on that happening.

(but I'd be okay with it if McShay did)

I've thought about the possibility, but then I remember how our OL currently looks. We need all of our picks.

I am fairly confident no more than 5 WRs will be taken before our pick. No way we move up for WR.
