Taking the 15th ranked player with the #1 overall pick doesn't make much sense...

I can tell you that I NEVER want to see him in a Panthers Jersey! He sold us out! Played our faces!! Fug that dude! I can only hope that something very bad happens to him this year so that he never even gets drafted!

This sounds moronic.

Dude Anderson played well this season.

And will likely be a free agent once the CBA is worked out. Can't count on him.

Hold on... Are we talking about the #1 pick or the #1 talent??

Oh that's right, it doesn't matter because Cam is both!

Doesn't matter though, I have a gut feeling we play it safe and take Dareus! I hope I'm wring but either way I'm happy!

I think Miller would be better than Anderson but I'd rather have Anderson as he never quit playing hard and I really liked that.

We do not need to draft linebacker first overall, no matter how grim a forecast you have on what the talent level will be.

Truth be told... After being on this board, hoping to get juicy rumors... All I've gotten are massive headaches to the point that I hope we draft a damn kicker with the #1 overall pick!

Listen to this guy! He's the only one that makes sense at this point! We definitely don't need a LB!!!

It's not my first choice, but there is some logic to it.

If that's the route they go, I'll be okay with it.

no dude here's most panther fans' opinion on defensive players

he wasn't originally drafted top ten? Why the fug is he starting?!

No logic! A DT makes more sense, that way we can free up Beason and TD!

Davis - two major injuries in the course of a year, also not under contract (expected to sign, but has said he may test free agency)

Connor - there was some chatter last year that his hip might be worse than thought

Anderson - has developed very well, but if the CBA is fixed he'll likely be a free agent and might get a better offer elsewhere than we're willing to give; can't count on keeping him


Basically, the only sure thing we have coming back is Beason.

My top choice would be Peterson though I'd be okay with Darues (chose Peterson because the DT pool is deeper) but if they went with Miller, I wouldn't scream about it.

Back to the original argument...

Let's consider a situation where Atlanta has the 1st overall pick. They happen to need a LT in the worst way. Two other teams are sitting in the top 10 that are also desperate for a LT. In this hypothetical situation they still have Matt Ryan.

The draft class in this pretend year is average, with no clear standout. The highest rated player is a QB. The highest rated left tackle is at 15.

Would they be stupid to take their guy at 1? They could trade down just to come out better from a value standpoint, but if they miss filling this key position their draft is a failure.

This situation is not unlike what we face, and we would be equally justified in taking the 15th best player at number 1.
