Riley Reiff (OT out of Iowa) was eating dinner with one of the Panther's brass last night at my restaurant. I didn't overhear much but he sounded like a smart guy and they were talking football pretty much the entire time. Talked about how he played only the option at high school but then met with a private coach to learn pass-blocking and then excelled at Iowa. It seemed like overall a casual first interview, but it seems like the panthers are definitely interested in him at #9.

Take that for what you will

if it was only the/an OL coach eating out with him, i'm not sure there's a whole lot of interest there. i wouldn't doubt that they'd be some but for guys they are really interested in usually there would be more of the coaching staff there, i guess.

Flectcher Cox interview last night, Brockers interviewed a week ago, Coples interviewed two days ago. They will interview many FA's.

I'd be fine with a offensive lineman at 9 if the board falls a certain way. But if that happens, hopefully we can deal down to somebody that wants Tannehill (Seattle at 12) and get somebody of Reiff, Martin, DeCastro as their doesn't seem to be a lot separation between them.

Of course we will. It just shows that he is at least on our board and is an option.

Reiff would be a good pick up if we decided to go the OL route and he's still there.

The Panthers will interview as many guys as possible to get to know them because you never know what kind of scenarios will play out at the draft. So it is smart to get to know as many players as possible, do all your homework, and be prepared for anything.

I know I am in the minority here but I would not hate it if we got a Reiff or Decastro.

Decastro is supposed to be Steve Hutchinson reincarnate and Reiff a better prospect than Jordan Gross. Possible move to RT if Otah isnt fixed.

Jason Brown at another guard spot and the line is wayy better from last season!

But about that defense...

I wouldn't be mad at this pick, but I'd totally want someone else other than on OL. =/

LTs are nearly as valuable as QBs. Yes, we have Gross, who is 32. Make sure you value the position. Otah will be gone next year even if he stays healthy, or he could kick inside. DT is deep, and after Reiff, there is a dropoff.

You could argue that we need to know what players are about in the event we want to trade. Never trade unless you know how badly the other side wants what you have to offer.
