Re: Defensive Tackle-Draft is NOT the way to go

....Yeah Jake Delhommes are just SOOOOO easy to find aren't they?

so many undrafted free agents starting and outperforming first round draft picks out there. Here's something you probably didn't look up: 9 out of the top 15 QBs this year were first rounders. So much for "bust" probability.

back to the topic at hand.

well, DT's do take a while to develop, more so than any other position I think. Haynseworth was considered a bust after about 4 years. :driving:

But anyway, I don't want a DT, I'd much rather draft a TE

TE in the first? We can easily pick up a decent TE in round 3+

oh noes, but that's on the Panthers first round "no-nos" list.

Other positions...

QB

WR

Safety

Instead let's stockpile running backs and linebackers....:rolleyes:

....although I would take Maualuga out of SC...

You just listed like 3 of the top young defensive tackles in the game, some teams stretch on some picks and thus busts happen.

DT's take 2-3 years at least to develop, as they're generally being thrust into a different situation and dealing with much larger and faster offensive lineman than they were in college. However, DT's are one of the safer early picks as the talent is more easily recognizeable and as long as you don't go for physical specimens and just go for the people who are impact players you are well off.

We shouldn't go for a DT in the draft because of this, and instead try to nab one in FA because we really don't have the time to wait for them to blossom.

Imo we need a do everything TE, and I wouldn't mind seeing Pettigrew as a panther. Big boy at 6-6 260, strong and can block. (fits foxes styles, but he has really good hands, runs good routes (most of the time) and has some decent speed to him for his size. (not the fastest guy in the world but he's got decent enough speed for what we would use him as and like I said he has sure hands.

I still think in the first round we look at DE, DT, LB. Thats foxy style there. Might even be looking for someone to take over diggs spot, they tried last season in FA, might try again in the draft this season. I'd expect one with our first 2 picks.

i dont think there is a DE in the first worth taking.and the DT is weak this year. we need a high draft pick to get b.j who is top 10 pick.but somepeople are saying he is a NT

    • My understanding is that you are supposed to report major changes to your income ( that you used to determine your subsidy ) to health care.gov over the course of the year,  so that the subsidy you recieve is in line with your income.  If you don't then yes  - you will be penalized at years end but you will not be paying any extra, only what you should have with the extra income.  In other words they don't fine/penalize you.
