So who do you want with our 3rd overall pick?

she is rated as first overall

I hear she's been 'scouted' by every NFL team! :o

(sorry, I have no clue who this was originally aimed at, but couldn't help myself. She...errr..It was so easy)

You really don't need to draft receivers or running backs high anymore.

I agree, BUT...you need to know how to pick them. Hurney has a poor history, but Gettis & LaFell look like he might have done alright.

Cam + a long term weapon would help this franchise for years to come

Call me blindly optimistic, but if Gettis picks up where he left off we might have a pretty potent (and young) one-two punch with him and LaFell for a long time behind Smitty. I feel like today we just couldn't control the line of scrimmage so if Kalil is there that's my choice.

I really dont think we need to draft a WR yet. DT and CB are by far the biggest needs.

I say, draft Matt Kalil, and pick up a veteran CB like Samuel for a couple of seasons. You just drafted two DTs. If you get another one, it should be via free agency or trade also.

WITH SMART OFFSEASON MOVES ON DEFENSE, the Panthers could compete next season. The Offense is full of vets. If you're going to draft a young guy, draft him on Offense. You don't need a receiver with Gettis coming back, and if he gets hurt again, you'll still be good enough there.

Draft Kalil.

Pick up veteran free agents on Defense so you can compete NEXT YEAR before guys like Smitty and Gross get too old.

I see where you are coming from, but look what AJ Green has been doing this year. Dude is putting up huge numbers. Hopefully Blackmon could do that for us. I'm also happy with Kalil

Green still isn't in the same league with Steve Smith and Wes Welker yet. Why waste a top pick on a GLAMOR POSITION like receiver, when you should build the team from the inside out?

Other than QB, you'd be better off filling glamor positions through free agency.

Huh? What top franchise WR are you going to find through free agency?

You're the main one again knee injuries. Gettis had an knee injury. So if he dont come back the same, we're stuck with an older Steve and defenses keying in on him. Eventually Cam will need that weapon

Is it too late to do it right and get Harbaugh first and not give a poo about the top draft pick? Harbaugh's winning with Alex Smith. Fox is winning with The Golden Calf of Bristol. Can we start for once at the top like all good football teams do: with a GOOD coach?

And build a team around a good coaching philosophy, not a QB? When you have a good coaching philosophy you can also pick good QB's. Funny how it works that way.

What's the Panthers coaching philosophy? Anyone care to explain this one to me? Cam Newton?

Only works for Indianapolis. See GB Farve to Aaron: Super Bowl winners in 2 years. See Patriots: Lose Brady: winning record with Cassell.

See Carolina:

Lose Jake = 7-9 with Matt Moore.

Force coach to go against his philosophy and start rookie QB: 2-14

New coach with no philosophy and rookie QB: 2-7

It's not going to get prettier.

Trade down, trade down, trade down.

We need some significant new blood on the team, especially on D (and no, I am not blaming them alone for the disaster today).

This group will not get it done, even with Beason back 100%.

This. If we do pick that high, trade down and get every top quality D-lineman (especially tackle) and linebacker we possibly can.
