ust as offense dominated the NFL regular season, it could dominate the NFL draft. The rich side of the ball should get richer, as the draft offers significantly more offensive talent than defensive talent. 

"It's surprising how heavy it is on the one side of the ball," one NFC general manager said. He estimated that of the 120 or so players on his board, 65 percent are offensive players.

A college scouting director said about 60 percent of the players on his team's board are offensive prospects. "It's such a balanced group throughout the offensive positions," he said. "Usually it's more defense heavy."

A high-ranking AFC personnel exec said about 60 percent of the 200 players he considers draftable are on the offensive side of the ball. He said it is particularly lopsided in the first three rounds. "There is a lot of opportunity on offense," he said.

 

JUST WHAT WE NEED! :rr:

 

Was watching ESPN & NFL network and most analyst are overlooking the Panthers especially due to the NFC South history of non-repeat Champion and the winner is usually 12-4 . I say frist time for everything with a resurgence in the offense and a elite defense.

Interesting, could work against us a bit though if teams are gobbling up all the WR/OT talent ahead of us and the defensive players are dropping.

just like last year we had a huge hole at DT and the draft was stacked at DT. seems like our biggest needs are again where the value/talent is going to be in the draft. gettleman factors in value in the draft when approaching free agency i'm sure

    • I'd love it if someone could do a compare & contrast post on Corey Davis, Zay Jones, Ross and maybe one or two of the other top WR prospects, ranking them on Speed Route running / separation Hands (catch percentage) Durability Fit in our offense For me, Ross is off my board (at least in the 1st round) due to his knees / injury risk.  Davis seems promising but it's hard for me to imagine DG going with him at #8.  Seems like one of other players we are likely to have ranked higher (Thomas, Adams, Fournette, Howard) might be available at #8.  Barnett & Lattimore might be above Davis on our Board and have a pretty high chance of being there at #8... I don't watch much college football at all. (Have enough trouble watching NFL games here in West Africa)  Don't know enough about Zay Jones and any of the other potential round 2 WR prospects....
    • I think Panthers fans would lose their minds if we took Lattimore. But he would be a stud for sure and pairing him with JB24 would be nice.
