Panthers begin background work on Fairley

[QUOTE]MOBILE, Ala. – The Panthers have begun the vetting process on Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley, his high school coach said Tuesday.
Williamson coach Bobby Parrish said Panthers college scout Jeff Beathard called him recently to ask background questions about Fairley. Parrish said other teams, including Oakland, have sent him questionnaires about Fairley, but the Panthers are the first team to call.


It's a procedural move by the Panthers, and one they likely have done with other top-rated prospects, as well. But it suggests the team is serious about taking the junior with the top pick in the April draft.


“I get the impression that they really like what they see,” Parrish said. “You never know because you don't know what their needs are. But they definitely think he's a good ballplayer.”

They will probably get a start on the rest of the guys they will look at in a coming weeks.

I fully expect this guy to be our pick as long as nothing comes up as far as character or in the pre-draft process.

I fully expect this guy to be our pick unless something unexpected comes up in the pre-draft process.

what a dumbass quote. I sure the Panthers are going to do checks on quite a few players. At this time they have to prepare to pick ANYWHERE in the first round.

We have a clear need at DT, and he is the best DT available in the draft. Not a sexy pick, but the moment Luck decided not to declare, we lost our chance of being sexy. I would still like to think that AJ Green is a possiblitly, but he looks like he lacks the bulk needed to get off the line at the pro level, he might be a project.

Yup, the big play ability is there. The [B][U]only[/U][/B] things that could possibly stand in the way of Fairley being the number one overall pick to us are:

-Charactrer/background doesn't check out well

-Bad combine workout and/or interview

-Some sort of injury between now and the draft

Outside of those 3 scenarios, Fairley's already a Panther.

I'm stuck between Green and Fairley, Dareus wouldn't bother me a bit if we did have an opportunity to move down a few spots.
