Receiver is our biggest need right now, regardless of what else we get, and I don't see us getting a vet QB before the draft.

As to the notion of a rookie being competition to start, you're talking about a coaching staff that was reluctant to start a guy who had three years in the system. Anyone seriously think they'd look to a rookie?


The same can be said for WR... Jarrett...

OLB, in my opinion, is still the biggest hole in our team... QB is right behind it...

WR is there too, and based on Smitty's chatter, you can rest assured we'll grab one if he is there, or make a play to move up and get our guy...

But if the worst case scenario rears its head, we'll have to stay at 48 and go BPA without reaching too hard for need... At this point, that could be a DB, OL, or something else totally off the wall... I wouldn't rule out someone like Vlad Ducasse if he's there either... lol.. You never know with the Panthers...

My prediction still stands as OLB or WR with our first pick (wherever it is), then whichever one of those we didn't get with our second pick, and then start looking at QBs with our third or fourth pick (again, wherever those picks might end up falling)... Of course, this does not hold true if we get Campbell...

Jarrett's got built-in issues (work ethic being the biggest).

We've got Davis, Anderson and Conner working at OLB. You consider that our biggest weakness? :confused:

facepalm... Don't question the formula!

Davis, coming back from a MAJOR injury...
Anderson, did well in spot starter duty, but has been around for a while without earning a starting job...
Connor, an ILB that had to fill in at OLB because of our depletion last year...

Say one of them gets hurt... That leaves you two guys playing 60 minutes without a breather... and I'm sorry, but I don't have to confidence at this point in either Anderson or Connor that some of you do... Depth is the biggest reason it is our biggest need overall, but if all the WRs are gone (I think this is our biggest WANT) that we have high atop our board, OLB is surely going to be up there...

I actually agree I think drafting a SLB in this draft is a must, but the value is not there in the 2nd. AJ Edds is my ideal pick. Did you know he is also a longsnapper. Two birds with one stone.

This lets someone like Golden Tate or Daryl Washington slide a little, and if they slide enough, we'll do what we have to do to move up and snag him...


If worse comes to worse and we have to stay at 48, it'll be a DB (I really doubt this happens) or a pass rushing DE/OLB hybrid like Jason Worilds... He is actually pretty hot on my radar right now for the Panthers...


i want washington so bad. can play wlb or ilb. great future starter or beastly depth. either way i am happy. plus as you say TD is coming off major surgury and anderson is still a 1 year deal i believe. we drafted TD with a loaded starting LB group too, and that worked out quite nicely. i see washington and weatherspoon (covet) are the 2 best LB for us by a mile. washington is just a playmaker. i dont think washington slides to 48 though.

on worilds, do not want in the 2nd. he isnt even as good as brown (love worilds 1st step but he is hit or miss on getting of the line in a timely fashion). also he is a workout warrior more than a player, upside out the arse (saying that for when he got to VT) but not productive. he was on a shitty line this year, and a decent line in 08, but never really put up huge numbers (did make ryans world hell, and as ryan is now a falcon maybe he can continue to?). short stature too. i am a vt guy an i dont think he fits in the nfl other than a 3-4 OLB or situational pass rusher (that may never come close to hitting his potential). rather have kam chancellor as a SS/WLB prospect out of vt much later.

FWIW, Worilds might not even make it out of the first round... a lot of teams are really really high on him...

All positions are in some type of danger in the case of injuries.

If's when talking about injuries are always there.

only if we moved up into the first round and took Tate or Bryant and we still had the 48th but I wouldn't holding my breath!

Even If you draft a QB you would have like 3 QB's on the roster with 8 games of starting exp. (all coming from Matt Moore). You would still have too bring in a Vet. So why drfat a QB this year? I don't think we need to even draft 1 this year.

No QB Needed in the draft this year... If Moore proves to be our long term starter then were set... If he fails then we can draft a top QB in the draft next year (If he fails we will more than likely have a early 1st round pick to draft a franchise QB)
