Analyst are split saying we should take Luck #1 while others say we should take a different prospect. Everything about the Panthers and the NFL exist as it does this very minute. Also Cam Newton does not exist in this scenario so do not even bring his name up in this thread please.

Same reason people who want Newton think he is worth the number 1 pick even though he is not the BPA. Not sure how you don't understand the idea behind the thread. If I can add something to the op to make it more clear please let me know.

But... but... in the first post, you said...

You couldn't wait five posts to blow that "THIS IS MY POINT" load, could you?

Honestly, I am more looking forward to the draft not to see who we select, but just so all this garbage will stop.

With every Cam thread posted, my IQ takes yet another hit

With every lockout thread posted, my soul dies a little more

At this rate, in two months I'll have been reduced to a Falcons fan

This question makes no sense because a). Luck was considered the BPA coming out this year b). We are making assumptions that he will not be the BPA next year even though he is already rated number 1 next year and c). In terms of be pro-ready with the capability to start right away, Luck blows Cam Newton away.

Also Luck didn't come out of no where and he showed promise and consistency both years that he has been a starter, including taking Stanford, and school with high academic standard with lesser athletes to the Orange Bowl and blew out VT.

In terms of who's a better prospect and a BPA in position of need, Luck blows any and all of the QB prospects in this class, and possibly next class away. I don't think anybody is arguing who is a better prospect between Landry Jones and Barkely and Luck. Right now Luck is at the top tier of every draft board and more than likely will be the number 1 pick next year weather you want to take off your cam hugging glasses or not.

Luck is more cerebral and accurate. He has no character concerns, other than positive ones. He is a franchise QB and will have much more experience. In addition, he made Stanford a winner.

If you only focus on Cam's upside, you probably have difficulty seeing the difference. You draft the whole player, not the highlight reel. A QB is an investment. The safe pick here is also the best player. Folks, if you really know football, this question is not even hitting the table.

The situation is flawed bc Luck is and will be the BPA. Those that say he isn't as good as advertised or over-hyped need to actually watch him play. He's as good on the field as any QB in the last decade or more. He also has no off the field issues, he's intelligent, competitive, and a great leader. Luck is exactly what the "media" has said he is...and if we draft Newton and end up with the first overall pick again someone will pay out the butt to get him.

^ exactly. Luck has more upside overall, combined in all areas. He also won't take as long to develop and could possibly contribute sooner. Cam, I am afraid is not in the same boat as Luck, hype says otherwise.

In your opinion he will be but Fact is no one truly knows if he is the player he's advertised as same goes for Newton or any other prospects. Luck could end up like Locker we just have to wait and see if that holds true or not.

I feel with our need for a QB now we have to take the one with the most talent and upside while we are in the position to do so.

It won't or will be replaced by a bunch of "I told you so" and "what now haters?" threads.

No way to know that for sure.......Clausen was suppose to be able to function before The Golden Calf of Bristol. Opposite was the reality though.

I think Cam's ceiling is just as high as anyone that has come out in recent years.

I'd take Luck if he is head and shoulders above every other QB prospect in the draft.. and we don't have a franchise QB. If we think he could be out guy, we take him. Luck has the production, the smarts, and the clean background check. Cam Newton just has the production.
