Panthers director of college scouting Don Gregory believes "capable" starting receivers can be as found as late as the fourth round in this draft.

"If you do your homework you can find that type of guy in the fourth round," said Gregory. Senior Bowl director Phil Savage, the former Browns' GM, agrees. We're not pretending that Carolina is telegraphing its draft plans, but this is one of the reasons we don't expect the Panthers to use the No. 28 overall pick at wide receiver. The offensive line class isn't anywhere near as deep.

A WHOLE PIE!

he's right, but that's no reason to not draft a better WR prospect earlier. this is a great class to double down on WRs and knowing that we can find solid quality in the fourth makes me feel good about the second pick we use on one.

Watch out for DE or DB.

I just don't think Moses at 28 is a reach. If this WR class is 4 rounds deep like he's saying then we have to use the first pick to strengthen our oline.

If it isn't one of the top three OT's then I wouldn't use the 28th pick on them.

Only three OT's even close to a first round grade for me.

There's about 7-8 wr's worth a first round pick.

On paper right now our oline is a laughing stock. We are hoping to find guys that can play tackle from a group of undrafted players. How you can have a franchise QB yet neglect the oline just doesn't make sense to me. It's cliche to say but it doesn't matter who the WRs are if Cam is getting blasted in the face by a DE.

It is restating the obvious and that is this is a deep wr class.

If the wr's can't get open, it doesn't matter who you have at oline either. It goes both ways . There just isn't going to be a day one starting Lt available at 28th. Bell is going to be the LT this season.

Realistically I think we have to pick a an OT that can start but that is just me.

If a 4th round rookie WR starts for your team... then welp.

Wouldn't surprise me Fuller, Gilbert, or Shazier is our pick at 28. We always assume top draft guys are better than who we have or is available as FA. Our FO may deem OTs available as projects and see defensive players as immediate starters.

Sounds like we will draft a OT in the first.

This doesnt mean much or tell us anything. But if that is the case, go defense first round preferably secondary. DO NOT reach for a OT. I have said before we are not a team that should sit back and wait just because of a deep WR class we dont have a legitimate number 1 WR or number 2. I just cant see how the first 3 picks wont be used on WRs and OTs.

Yeah, and I'm sure Adams, Pilares, Edwards, and Gettis agree with him, there are always lots of quality mid round WRs.

Jokes aside though, I don't think the philosophy of drafting project WRs mid round every year is a good one obviously. We need a guy with 1st round talent at some point. That being said, the thought of going the 1st 2 rounds without drafting an OT this year scares me. There is a big drop off after that.

If there is a potential #1 WR there at 28 you take him.

 

I am cool with a TE, WR, or OL a D pick will annoy me.
