I know he has a lot of the huddle divided as to whether people want him with the #1 pick or not, but I'm really starting to think unless Gabbert comes out of his pro day looking like Peyton Manning that we're gonna pick Cam. Rivera seems enamored with him, and we're obviously showing a lot of interest while doing our due diligence.

That being said, I'm actually looking forward to us proclaiming who will be the #1 pick before the draft and working out a contract with him prior to the actual draft like many other #1s have done recently. Although I don't know if we'd be able to negotiate that contract with the current labor issues until they're resolved.

My question though: What would your reaction be if we came out and declared that we will be taking him #1 before the draft?

Would you be more disappointed if we waited until draft day to pick or do you want it wrapped up before the draft? Do you think it makes a difference?

I dont care. I also would be ok with drafting Cam Newton. The problem is that there is no CBA right at this moment so right now it really doesnt matter.

Despite being "anti-winning," I'll will be happy with whoever we pick. I'll be happier if we take Dareus or Gabbert. But I would still rather take Cam than take a CB #1.

I will take a bite of a York peppermint patti so I can get the sensation of running naked through the jungle, while Asian school girls shoot cold water up my ass.

I'll swallow my pride and root for the kid, but I won't be happy we didn't milk tine to field trade offers.

I would have to consult a doctor because my reaction would persist for more than 4 hours

I'd be excited on the "potential" that he could bring to the offense that was the worst in the NFL. I think once it's over the divide between the fan base will become optimistic about Cam at first.

I wouldn't be disappointed with this one, but that's a good approach because as has been hashed and re-hashed here, Hurney has an excellent track record in #1s... now what he does after that is a different story (Everette Brown, Armanti, CJ Irvin, Attiyah Ellison, Eric Shelton, Dwayne Jarrett, etc.)... But, it seems he's on point with the #1 every year.

Guilty admission: I was really disappointed in the Beason pick and thought it was a reach... I am now his biggest fan and know that while I may be football savvy and know quite a bit about some players coming out, he is our GM for a reason and I'm just a talking head on a message board.
