I don't think the run game would suffer.. the WR's are made to block in the option scheme. Bay Bay is a very experienced run blocker.. and he is big to boot. He should do a great job taking Moose's spot in that regard.

It appears that Hurney was at the Ohio pro day watching Taylor Price (WR), who has been impressing people with his athletiscm since the combine. Appears to rose his stock to the 2nd round. I think the Panthers are adament at taking a WR with their first pick. They have been looking at LB's projected anywhere from 3rd through 5th. And they have been looking at QB's projected from 2nd through 4th. Also, CB's from 2nd to 7th. So I would guess WR, QB, LB will be our first 3 picks in this draft with CB somewhere near behind.

I think we can have a player very similar to Thomas in Marcus Easley. Not to mention the fact that we can have him in the 4th, maybe even later.

I still think one of the top defensive guys (Weatherspoon, or a DE) slides to the early second where nobody is projecting them to be available...

If so, I think we'll move up with someone like KC (for next year's first, of course) and snag him...

That said, WR is still the biggest hole on the team (aside from depth at LB)... and we will be taking one within our first three picks of the draft...

The good news is, I think we have a great shot at actually having three picks in the second round... Ours (#48), someone else's for Richard Marshall (Baltimore, Cleveland, and Minnesota lead my list of potential teams interested), and another one in the top of the second (after trading our 2011 first rounder)...

We could get a WR, an LB, and a DE (our three biggest needs in my opinion) right there where the talent pool for those positions will still be pretty deep... Then we could use our 3rd on another WR if we chose to, or even a QB (I'm starting to think we'll actually draft one pretty early on this year)...

It is an exciting time given our possibilities, but whether or not the team actually takes those chances and runs with them remains to be seen...

Gonna post a few more WR that should be around in the later rounds, but still could help our team.

Eric Decker, Minnesota

NFL Draft Bible says we're scouting Jeremy Horne (UMass).

I doubt we trade next years pick if Marshall is gone.

I think it depends on where he goes and who we want in the draft...

If we trade Marshall it instantly opens another need for CB. It kind of defeats the purpose unless you're talking about moving Martin/Godfrey to CB. Don't fix what ain't broke! Marshall is fine, the 2nd round tender was only to show Marshall he's not worth the money he thinks he is.

Also thought I'd mention that those that love Thomas are going to be sad. On some mocks I'm seeing him move up to near the top 10 area. His value is skyrocketing, and will only go higher once he has his pro day.

The best WR in this year's draft is a fellow that wasn't even invited to the combine, for reasons beyond anyone's comprehension. Freddie Barnes of Bowling Green.

I wish they had kept Jeremy Leman... That guy was a beast in pre-season!

Panthers offensive coordinator Jeff Davidson, wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert and GM Marty Hurney were all on hand to direct a 30-minute workout with WR Taylor Price (6-feet 3/8, 202 pounds), who stood on all of his numbers from the Scouting Combine but ran position drills and caught passes from Ohio University QBs Brandon Jones and Theodis Scott.
