Hardy was supposed to have an attitude problem too, wasn't coachable, blah, blah, blah.

I like this move simply because it should make both CJ and Hardy not get lazy this year.

When we picked Ealy with Moses still on the board my jaw dropped, followed by the word "what" about twenty times. However, I do understand the pick.

Only reason I don't like the pick is because Allen Robinson (my fav WR in draft) was still on the board. However I understand this pick may really help us out in the future for cap space so I'm ok with it.

Our D is absurdly nasty and I like it. I like it a lot.

Godfrey restructured so this pick is just fine. We can shop for o-line help with that 4mill Gett saved. All isn't lost on the O-line if Chandler can step up and or Bell step in.

Good pick. He was on their radar like KB was. How fortunate.

This guy and Hardy alone would be a nasty duo(in a year or two). If CJ can restructure later and be a veteran presence like TD, we can keep the band together for a while. I just know that teams will go with youth and talent in a heartbeat though, it's up to him. 10+ sacks this year and Hardy is getting that contract.

Good chess move GM. bravo

Here's the thing about it.

 

DE may be a need NEXT year... but CB is a need THIS year.

I like Ealy a lot in the 2nd round and am pleased to have him in our team. WITH THAT BEING SAID, we probably should've taken Morgan Moses. He was also a first round talent, and unlike Ealy, I would have been happy with us taking him in the 1st round. He fell to us in the 2nd round, and IMO his level of talent + His filling of a position of strong need = the best possible pick at 60.

However, Ealy could help save us 10+ million dollars so.....


I've seen several sources that said the Panthers did not like Moses at all. Voth said it several times. Wonder what they saw when they vetted him.

You can rationalize it however you want, nothing changes the fact that we drafted a backup in the second round when we need starters.

We drafted a starter for the 2015 season.

Maybe, who's to say we won't still have CJ and Hardy next season? Too bad he's not a starter for the 2014 season, which is what we need.

Has there ever been a rookie DE that was a starter in there first year?  I know what you are getting at you would rather have a starting rookie WR or OT.
