According to the Draft Value Chart, #9 is worth 1350, 27 + 31 = 1280, so we could also potentially get a late round pick out of it.


The old chart's been burnt up and thrown away with the new CBA rules for rookies. You'd be able to swing a 3rd or 4th into that trade as well.

i really doubt the deal would be just 27 and 31 for 9, but i can see a trade happening in some way. wouldn't be the first time they traded during the draft.

Depends on if the Panthers can afford to sign 2 first rounders. And if the players they are targeting will still be available.


Two late first rounders won't be much to sign. I don't know the exact numbers of the Rookie Wage Scale, but it's nowhere near as much as it used to be.

That's a really crap spot to be in. At 9 you've got some good talent not to mention the possibility one of the top 8 talents falls to you.

I definitely would not do it until draft day when it was our turn to pick, and I probably wouldn't even do it then.

let's do it. We need starters and depth at multiple positions. The more picks at the top of the draft, the better. There will still be some really good players available with those 2 picks. Would hope they would throw in another pick though.

I would 3 picks in the top 40.

Devon Still, Zach Brown and Stephon Gilmore anyone?


Three quality picks would help all levels of the defense - yes.

I guess it depends on who is on the board still. If Claiborne is there, then I say hell no. I'd have to really think about it if Coples were still there at #9.. if they are both gone, I may just take that trade.

With 3 Top 40 picks, we could still get, Mark Barron, Zach Brown, and Vinny Curry.

Really depends on who's available when we pick. The Patriots have their eyes on a specific player, so unless he's there, they probably wouldn't trade up. If Claiborne and Coples are gone I might pull the trigger based on current DT values. Until there's a clear cut #1 DT, I think it's a crap shoot with major odds against us. That being said, we could add a DT, OLB and CB with top 40 picks.

You realize signing rookies comes out of some exception money in the cap right ? No you people wouldnt know that.

Patriots look to be targetting Michael Brockers with Top 10 pick. Interesting. Just had a workout with him, and now want to trade up..

This is really a good thing for both teams.
Thus, it wont happen.

I think it would be the best possible scenario, a solid presence in the middle, a LB with speed to burn (he reminds me of TD) and a tall physical corner with 4.4 speed.
