In the trenches. The best DT or OT available.

Blackmon physically looks like the 2nd coming of Calvin, doesn't he?

Panthers could use someone like that, without doubt, but, serious defensive problems, and the need for another OT (and now Bell isn't the long-term answer and Gross is getting long in the tooth) will probably not make that possible, but, who knows.

Hard to find quality OTs and DTs past round 2.

I just hope, somewhere along the way, the Panthers draft a kicker who can kick-off and make field goals...sick already of Mare.


No.
Calvin Johnson is 6'5" 235.
Blackmon is 6'1" and twenty pounds lighter.
Guy wears big pads. Doesn't fill them well.

Justin Blackmon = Hakeem Nicks

Calvin Johnson = one of the X-Men, possibly Colossus

LB Vontaze Burfict

The best linebacker in the draft. Fills our biggest defensive need (that's not a veteran DT), which is finding a replacement for TD. (This all assuming the coaching staff feels he can play outside).

holy poo I agree with GRG

although I'm not sure there is a DT worthy of being picked in the top 5-10(more than likely we pick in top 10, but I could see us getting a top 5 pick). it'd be awesome if we trade down and pick up a 3rd rounder or something.

Vontaze Burfict.... MLB-OLB.


To bad Burfict has never played OLB so there's no way of knowing if he can....

Burfict is the most overrated prospect in the draft.

Here's hoping we trade down, possibly in both the first and second round

Burfict is the most overrated prospect in the draft.

Which is why I didn't even put his name in bold.

I think Burfict will be an awesome LB, for a 3-4 team, and a team that has the chance to give him a mentor so he calms down. Much like Jimmy Smith was coming out of this year's draft. He went to a team that could mentor him, because they already had an established leader in the locker room.

I'd like to see us try and trade back, and pick up a third round pick, honestly. If we could trade back and get Janoris Jenkins, I would be extremely pleased. Or, if we could trade back and try and land someone like Zach Brown late, that'd be nice, too.
