So, Huddle Fans, Luck is gone.

Moving on, who do you like for Carolina QB?

I am honestly conflicted. At one point earlier in the year I wanted to go QB either way in the draft but I have no idea now.

Some of the other QB prospects do look good but nothing like what people thought of luck. Newton, Gabbert, Mallett, and Locker all have huge upside and nice skillsets... but major question marks for each of them.

So, do we stick with what we have, going back to Moore and/or Clausen?

Do we go with a new rookie, and build around them? Could always do this and keep the other two mentioned before, or one of 'em and add a veteran...

Or do we go for a veteran FA who expects to start and let them?

We need to try our best to trade down and take Locker or Newton.

If we can't then i am all for drafting AJ Green and picking up a vet QB for now.

honestly I like a lot of what Locker brings I just didn't want him #1. Gabbert is skyrocketing up draft boards, some have him going as high as #5.

Newton with a good showing in the nat'l championship could look like a #1, especially if he does it with his arm and not his legs.

Mallett has a decent game but ultimately I wouldn't draft him anywhere near the top half of the first round.

Like Mav's I'm thinking Cam will have a monster game next Monday will up his stock even more and possible take Lucks spot as the number 1 QB. If not Cam AJ Green (Moss V2) without question.

Newton is the biggest trash ever. I don't even know why anyone would ever consider taking him inside the top 5. And for those who think Locker is worth being taken in the first round.... Why would you think that? I've watched many games of his and can tell you he is vastly overrated.

At this point you have to take either Green or Peterson. I really like Gettis and Lafell, but they are not Green. WR prospects like Green rarely come along. And Peterson would obviously come in and play CB with Chris Gamble which would be a tremendous combo.
