How would you feel if we took a kicker in round 6 or 7?

yeah but if your asking me to spend a 5th on a kicker who can actually kick it I'm all for it. its better than drafting someone like zack friggin sanchez.

Youre asking the wrong person about using a draft pick on a special teamer. I'm mainly against it, takes a rare player to make a exception. I believe most of the long snappers, kickers and punters where undrafted, not 100% sure.

I do agree if there is a true upgrade in the 5th, take him. I just member the mare/Medlock era and while gano struggled it can be worse.

I was pissed too. He did not have a good year. Same can be said for every panther not named norwell, Davis, Olsen, and star. Not going to waive 49 players either.

you're joking, right?

What's the chance of a 6th round pick really becoming a quality starter? 10% maybe?

What's the chance of a kicker drafted in the 6th round of becoming a quality starter?  probably more than 10%?

Total 4 year cap cost of a 6th round pick, around $2.5m.

One year cap cost of Gano, $4m.

Last year you could have drafted the 2nd kicker in the 6th round or the 20-27th WR.

I go back and forth with Gano. Just from my eye test he seems to be above average overall but below upper echelon. 

If he would make a few more of those pressure kicks I don't think many people would have much heartburn with him. 

I don't follow kickers much but a good question would be, do kickers normally get better? Not sure.

I don't think a draft pick is quite worth it this year. I'd like to see Gano get one more year to prove where he's at and either stick by him or move along.
