1. Julio Jones
2. Jonathan Baldwin
3. Titus Young
4. Torrey Smith
5. Leonard Hankerson

You could make an argument for the first four to be 1st round draft picks. IDT they all WILL go in the 1st round because teams are going to draft somewhat based on need. So you could be looking at guys like Young, Smith, and Hankerson falling to the late 2nd round or possibly to our 1st pick in the third round. So in short, trade the 1st pick (ideally) or draft a position other than WR because this is a relatively deep draft at that position if its a position we want to address. Personally, with us taking 3 WRs in last year's draft and two of them showing a lot of promise I don't see us taking a WR before the 4th or 5th round this year. I think we go with what we have and we try to beef up TE as a receiving option.

I like Green, but I don't know that we need yet another young receiver. Pretty young at that spot already.

I'll grant that no one we have now is as dominant as he might be if he lives up to potential. Still, I have a feeling our top pick will be used elsewhere.

I'm not sure why I keep reading threads about drafting WRs when the Panthers drafted 3 last year. For as bad as the QB situation is, drafting 6 won't help the passing game.

The Panthers have one of the best WRs in the game and can't find a way to get him the ball, what makes anyone think adding another is going to make a difference? If the team feels like they need another WR they'll take one late.

Agreed. If we can find a TE who is as important to our offense as Gates is to San Diego (which Chud should be able to do), then the need for another receiver is solved but not by a WR. I would like us to take a proven vet TE in free agency and develop the guys we have. No doubt Green has great potential and may end up being the best guy in the draft, but he isn't at a great position of need. Frankly BPA is fine as long as you are solid at most positions. Unfortunately, we have some gaping holes at several positions. WR is very deep this year so as you say, we can find a stud down the road. I just don't think it is high on the Panther's list as some other positions this year.

That in no way is a negative to Green at all. Green is the right guy but not at the right time.

#6 and the most important, NO WR EVER has been or will be worth #1 overall. That is not how you build successful teams. QB, OL, DL is where it all starts and we have a glaring need at both DT positions and QB so...

I am 99% sure we are taking a QB with our first pick.

6. Michael Floyd decides to stay in school another year.

Sure do wish a CBA is done where a player could be offered up to move into the later 1st to grab a stud WR and allow us that top pick to go defensive. Otherwise, we'll be figuring out how to get (possibly) Luck and Floyd in the first round next year.

I am going to have to disagree and point out that AJ Green and Julio Jones are the only top tier WR's. I think that their is a much larger gap in parity with the WR's than there is with the DT's or QB's.

I do agree we should try to trade pick (if possible, but highly unlikely)

Loves me some Julio Jones. He just goes out and makes plays. My favorite receiver in this draft.

I haven't posted anything about it, but at this point, it wouldn't suprise me. 99% might be a little agressive on the confidence scale, but 8 out of the last 10 #1 picks have been QB's and with it being our biggest need (according to Hurney), why not try to address it.

I would say it is a toss up to me between Julio Jones and AJ Green, but i believe those two are head and shoulders above the rest.

If we were going to draft a WR (which I hope we don't), I'd hope for AJ Green and Titus Young. AJ is the prototype and local while Titus shows that he has the clutch, big playmaker capability.

If we don't find a trading partner at the #1 spot, I think we go defense first.
Of the two top rated players at this time its between Fairley (DT) and Peterson (CB). If Williams is traded or lost, I think we go with Peterson. The reason for this is because of our CB situation and Peterson also can solve our punt return/kick return problem. Last year we rotated several players doing this duty. Goodson was used some, but with Williams gone we should not use him for this duty also. This would give us a starter on defense and offense. I could see us taking Fairley, but Peterson I think would be the better pick.
