Mr. Scot

Voth: Time to draft a mid-round QB

Recommended Posts

From the latest Grill Bill:

Quote

Since making Cam Newton the No. 1 overall pick in 2011, Carolina is the only team in the league that hasn’t taken a quarterback in the past six drafts. Even New England and Green Bay, who have somewhat decent quarterbacks, have each picked two since 2012. It’s time the Panthers use a mid-round pick on one. 

"Mid-round" would generally mean third to fifth.

My guess would be it's at least being discussed in the Panthers offices.  I don't think this is just blind speculation.

I also like Mike White.

Kyle Lauletta looked pretty good in the senior bowl as well.

Why not just pick one up in FA?

Using a draft pick on a QB after watching receivers drop passes left and right on the road in the playoffs is a little absurd.

I could speculate three reasons:

1) They no longer feel the need to have a veteran backing up Newton

2) The Panthers might want to start grooming a successor

3) Cheaper

Exactly check, check, check.  Big need IMO.

Will there not be any potential options available in free agency that can reasonably fit those stipulations?

I'm just honestly viewing it as a bit of a slap in the face to use anything more than a 6th or 7th rounder on a backup QB when we asked our current QB last year to literally drag us to the playoffs carrying our run game while throwing to guys who wouldn't even make the roster on many other NFL teams. I'm not saying I don't want a capable backup to a degree, I'm just saying think how that would look if you were in Newton's shoes. Especially if we are indeed cutting Stewart like it has been rumored. These are just things to ponder.

Don't waste a draft pick on an QB , I rather roll with PS QB Garrett Gilbert.

P.S. Voth has to write certain "types" of articles keep his job relevant & bring traffic for Panthers bojangle operation.

He sure did--

But until we get some free agents in here, I am not sure we can afford to give up any picks on a backup QB.

I do not expect to see Cam playing at 40 like Brady and Brees---he is only going to be effective (until he gets his accuracy issues under control) when he can run.  I see Cam lasting until about 32.  Hope I am wrong.

I'd say it is a certainty. A said weeks ago using one of the thurd rounders on a QB is likely.
