I hated the pick because we already had Beason and DT was the biggest weakness on the team.
Thank God I'm not a GM.
this. while i do realize OL is a huge need at the moment, it is for this reason that i am not worried about Gettleman. he knows he needs to improve the OL. and i have faith that he will soon. but to pass up talent that would (did) make us better is foolish. if we had taken an OT or two, we might have missed out on KB, Bene, Ealy, or Turner. we dont know about Boston yet, but he could be a gem too for all we know. those 4 picks (maybe 5 with Boston) made us a better team that we might not have been if we had picked up more OL talent instead.
He's well on the way to being the most popular Panther ever.
im not sure how i feel about this. my initial reaction is to say... "but what about Smitty and Superman and TD and even Gross" but at the same time, ive never heard a negative word spoken about Luke in Panther nation so... maybe youre right. it would be shocking to me though
