MY Panthers Draft run down

20 posts in this topic

I just finished up my draft in my teams message board GM League. I took over the Panthers. Keep in mind this gm league i made trades, so the draft picks arent the same numbers as the real world panthers. But anyways Here is my draft run down.

1st pick-Round 2 (pick 40)- Tight End Aaron Hernandez, University of Florida

God bless it... not another one of these threads...

Just kidding. I'm surprised at your picks, honestly. TE? Do we really need another? OLB? I would probably grab one in the 4th or 5th while grabbing a WR or two before.

But, interesting none-the-less.

i had donte rosario on my roster thats it. i had no WRs available in the 2nd worth the pick, so a TE that is almost a WR was the best i could do.

I like Selvie in the 5th. If we get him there, I think he could be an solid player once day.

Everything after the first 2 are great. But a TE and OLB as the first 2 picks?? I'd like to go D Line on one and WR on the other.

I am sorry this is a lousy prediction.

TE??? That is such a waste of a pick.

OLB we have Connor and Anderson waiting to fight for that spot. No OLB in the second round is gonna overtake either one of these guys. You don't address our most glaring need until the 4th round. Most 4th rounders are mediocre at best. Perennial Special teams players at best. You don't address DT at all. Probably our second most glaring need.

QB you selected doesn't have much of an upside other than he had the strongest arm of the group? Though interesting prospect we already have a QB like him in Cantwell. If we are going to have a project might as well keep going with Cantwell.

The other picks we can take or leave. I believe in the latter rounds though when we draft OLINE we draft versatile players. G/C type players.

Sorry just not overly impressed.

oh yeah.....the defensive tackle position. didnt clarify i franchise tagged peppers then traded him for tyson jackson (last years 4th overall pick) a 3rd round pick, dajuan morgan, and willis mcgahee (i needed him to backup DWIll sense i trded stewart)

so my front 4 consisted of everette brown, kemo, tyson jackson and patrick kerney. thats the reason i didnt go after a DT.

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
