RT @ZReportDraft: Sources say Panthers leaning towards sticking w/ Claussen & waiting for QB. Scouts saying "put Dareus 1 & keep him there"


They were the same ones who reported people were questioning Cam's leadership cuz of the TD run in the BCS game. It did come up in the interview process.

Rivera can't take that kind of gamble....not starting his NFL HC career. Whether you love or hate Clausen......you can't as a new coach ride him this next season. Won't happen.

Makes sense, the whole Cam thing does smell like a bluff to see if they can entice a team (cough...Bengals...cough) into trading up.

I would be satisfied.

PP is my favorite pick, but Dareus sure as hell is a monster.

I am not suprised by this news, Rivera did say we would draft according to biggest postion of need, right?

IMO, our rush defense was more of a liability than our QB play. We have some great weapons on offense and a new coordinator than may be able to use all of those players to their potental, encluding Clausen and Edwards.

Dareus fills a massivehole at DT, especially if we can't attract any FAs.

No Camera Newperson please :(

the 8th ranked defense in the league, is surely not as big as a problem as the 32nd ranked offense, QB play was horrible :cool:

Makes no since unless they can get a high second. LOL I remember all the years they said we were drafting a TE also.

Doubt it I would believe this to be true if we still had Fox to be honest with the reports of our team wanting to have a more aggressive identity or what not.

Our Defense is not a MAJOR issue while he would be a good pick and would contribute we have bigger needs..April 28th seems to be taking forever and a day to come around SMH.

? Not sure what you are trying to say here.

I think the fact that we don't have a 2nd likely increases the chance that we won't draft a QB #1. If we do and they fail then that will set us back and will not be good for Rivera's tenure. He needs to get the most sure fire prospect he can and Dareus is one of those guys. Plus we are ridiculously weak at DT, at least there is some hope of talent at the current QB situation. It will also be easier to land a veteran QB in FA than it would a good DT in FA.

I'm saying Rivera will not start his debut coaching season w/ Jimmy Clausen as the QB.....too big of a risk. I'm not saying w/ draft Cam....but the logic Rivera is going to roll w/ Clausen lacks little logic.

basically, it is staying Rivera is gonna start a rookie QB (which is what Clausen's level of play will be)who will be totally unfamilair w/ his offense and who likely could miss chunks of camp to be learning it.

We can get some talent in FA to improve at DT. D overall is strong. Clausen level QB play causes an offense to implode and a D to suck. It is a very real possible Clausen will be worse next season if he plays.

The only issue I had was the "source" claiming he was sticking w/ Clausen. I think Rivera could easily draft a DT....but he still has to find a QB.

I always believe tweets where the tweeter can't even spell the player's name right.
