something about this has been posted once....i think the panthers realize that there are a lot of good players at one and its just about picking which on will make the biggest impact.

Smokescreen:smilewinkgrin:

what would be the purpose of saying we don't want him, if we're really going to pick him? what purpose would a "smokescreen" serve? i see a lot of people saying smokescreen but it would only be a smokescreen if we said we wanted him, in an attempt to get someone to trade up and take him instead. if we're saying we're not as interested as everyone thinks, that wouldn't be a smokescreen. we have the #1 pick. nobody can hurt us because nobody picks ahead of us so there is no reason whatsoever to do a smokescreen and pretend we like someone we don't. it only works on the opposite so no, it's not a smokescreen. wanting to trade down for a 2nd rounder isn't smoke screen.

are we going to say, "HAHA, we made you think we didn't want Cam Newton but we picked him anyway! Fooled you!!!"

what would that accomplish?

I think some of you just like posting "Smokescreen" in every thread possible. :beatdeadhorse5:

Newton news reports are so inconsistent its crazy :lol: I still would be very surprised if he wasn't our pick at this point. Either they jump on the norm what everyone else is reporting, if he's being talked up or trying to be different and hoping something sticks come April 28th who knows...
