I think we're definately trading next year's 1st. Trading doesn't cost money. However, this additude of trimming the fat may also mean we won't make any big trades. That way we have clean books and all of our draft picks next year. I think we are going to make trades though. We always do.
We need help and draft picks are young and cheap. Sounds good for this year.
I think we'll get a 2nd and 4th like last year.
REVISED I kind of forgot that I had David Reed down there at the bottom so yeah 3 WR's didn't make much sense. Instead I went to the other extreme and got 3 DE's. I'd love to hear more feedback.
2nd: Bradon LaFell WR - He should just barely be able to fall to 47.
2nd: Corey Wootton DE - great pass rusher, coming off an ACL injury should be a full 2 years out by September. A little stiff in run support but can be coached up.
3rd: Mike Neal DT - He'll be great in rotation. Fits well in the 4-3. We have good depth so getting a solid developmental guy is a good move here.
4th: Rennie Curran OLB - great WLB for the cover 2. Only knock on him is that he's small. Has 1st round atributes otherwise. Will be a great backup. Watch his highlights he flies around the field. I would love to see him at SLB but he doesn't have the size. Connor would be better but I'd still like to get a SLB somewhere. I'd rather have Curran even if he'll back up Davis most of the time. This is my biggest "draft crush" I geuss you could call it. I want this man to be a Panther.
4th: Greg Hardy DE - this is a total gamble but acceptable in the 4th. He's an injury prone Peppers clone. His success is reliant on a number of big IFs.
6th: David Reed WR - A small school guy that transfered to the big schools and still put up great numbers. This guy is highly underated.
7th: George Johnson DE - good value here. I can't find a place to pick a DE where we couldn't get somebody else better at an other position. A big trend in our 7th round is to draft a longshot DE or a developmental OL guy. The OL guy's have worked out better than the DE's. O-line depth is great this year though, so pile on the D-linemen.
