1. We are set at WR. The passing game has looked so crappy this season because of QB play and play calling, not WR depth. Both LaFell and Gettis have #2 caliber for a run heavy team like us.

2. Another young QB wont help. We need a QB to grow and get comfortable before we can decide he sucks. That means you, Clausen haters.

3. We need to pick up a washed up veteran QB in the offseason as a backup and a mentor.

4. Our first draft choice should be used on the O-Line or the D-Line, because, quite frankly, they have not played well enough this season. The O-Line has sucked, and the D-Line hasn't been dominant enough. [See #5]

4.5. Obviously the one above needs an edit, because it wasn't clear. When I said "our first draft pick", that doesn't necessarily mean the top 5 pick we will have. Trade down a round, get up 2/3 more picks.

5. We need a dominant DT in this draft. These no name guys we've got have played okay, but we aren't putting enough pressure on the opposing QB.

6. We need to fire Jeff Davidson. Just that right there will solve half of our problems.

Drafting for need over BPA usually ends in disaster.

how to construct a straw man

step 1. take a strong side

step 2. falsely characterize anyone who would argue with any part of your opinion

step 3. attack that false characterization with easy to remember and type little names

step 4. accuse anyone that disagrees as being this false characterization, then refer them back to your previous posts

Because, in almost every case of drafting for need, we have drafted a receiver.

We dont have to worry about that this draft because everything is a need.

Unless u can trade down u don't draft an OL or DT. Why waste the first overall pick including the crazy amount of compensation for a player that is not worth that pick.

Smith is not getting any younger and you will soon need a #1 WR. If you pass on the next Larry Fitzgerald(AJ Green) you should be shot!

Exactly. We trade down, get some extra picks, and give someone else (Arizona) the chance to take the big named QBs.

If we take another WR early in the draft, or anywhere in the draft for that matter, then we deserve to be the NFL's worst team.

i read someone said they wanted the panthers to draft AJ green because he's shown he can make any quarterback look good.

that seems like putting the cart ahead of the horse to me.
