Rumor: Bengals And Panthers Competing For #2 Overall Pick. Panthers Have Current Lead & Offer.

Recommended Posts

The draft insider I was talking about before who had a whole wealth of information strikes again.

This time, the news may or may not be the most desirable.

Cincinnati & Carolina are in heavy talks with San Francisco, but Carolina's offer of three picks (first, second, third) is currently the best offer San Francisco has for the #2 pick. Word is that Cleveland has asked for time to make a presentation to the 49ers, but if the Carolina deal goes through, it is with the Panthers' intention of taking Fournette. While San Fran has been linked to Solomon Thomas at #2 & he might perchance slide to #8, I am hearing that if still there, Lynch will pounce on McCaffrey. There's a sideline view there, as Payton & the Saints want McCaffrey and with 3 choices in the first two rounds, they could put another package that the 49ers neophyte GM might take. Some in the organization feel that Lynch could trade down even further (after Carolina/NO mess weeds out), as the Pokes are trying to angle up & see if Conley or Melinfowu fall into their laps.
Just the chatter from talking to a San Fran exec this AM

Still doubting the source? Here's a couple of testimonials:

Dave Te is legit

[–]49ersDrodman93 1 point just now 

Dave te is a longtime scout this is probably more legit than most.

To clarify, this would probably mean this year's 8th overall pick, this year's 2nd round pick, and our compensatory 3rd round pick.

Let the meltdown begin.

Are we really contemplating giving up 2 potential starters to move up to take a RB? Really?

Any pick is a potential starter but a 3rd round comp pick isn't a likely starter...

We're lucky it's such a deep class we could get away with it. We could get a starting caliber TE & WR as late as round 5 tbh, and an elite DE with our other 2nd rounder.

There is literally another thread like 8 spots down that saysGman plans to stay put at 8... stop with these rumors lol. Literally nobody knows. We will know on Thursday

Issue is, this is a respected scout source. The info is from the 49ers executive office, and the scout spreading the info has done this with accuracy in the past.
