I really feel like that's a tough question to answer. How do you compare AJ Green's talents as a receiver to Nick Fairley's as a DT? Wouldn't "who is the biggest sure-thing in this draft?" be a better question?

If that's the question, I say Peterson or Green. Still, I don't think you take either of thsoe guys at #1.

To me the BPA is the player who has the most potential to be the best player long-term. And that's Cam Newton without question, IMO. As far as 'immediate impact' guys go, A.J. Green.

I change my mind 4 times a day on who I want with the 1st pick

BPA is probably either Green or Peterson.

BPA is the player with the highest skill set right now, along with the potential to get better.

That is what I was driving at.

If we somehow acquire a 2nd rder then draft AJ Green and take the best DT in the 2nd.

If we drop a couple spots take Dareus or Newton and take Rudolph in the 2nd.

It comes down to 5 players. Newton, Bowers, Green, Peterson, Fairley

I'm going to rate them in three catagories, highest upside is the tie breaker

Highest upside:

1. Newton

2. Bowers

3. Green

4. Peterson

5. Fairley

Pro Ready:

1. Peterson

2. Green

3. Bowers

4. Fairley

5. Newton

Blow up potential:

1. Bowers

2. Newton

3. Fairley

4. Green

5. Peterson

Thus PBA is...

1. Peterson

2. Green

3. Newton

4. Bowers

5. Fairley

Looks like I just talked myself out of the Fairley camp... except if we were talking biggest need... then it would all change

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
