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!
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.
