Our linebackers

I was just wondering since drafting a CB is often mentioned around here, how did Hogan do last year in his limited action? Is he not considered starter material?

expected these type player to be sign by panthers

70-79: Good Starter

Solid starter who is close to being an outstanding player. ... Has few weaknesses and usually will win his individual matchup but does not dominate in every game, especially when matched up against the top players in the league.

60-69: Average Starter

A valuable roster player but not a dominant player against the better players he faces on a weekly basis. ... Gives great effort and teams are glad to have him, but he may or may not go to the next level.

50-59: Good Backup

This is a player who is really on the bubble and only starts because of a deficiency at the position. ... He lacks complete overall skills, and although he will battle, he will hinder his team's ability to play at a championship level if he is forced to be in the starting lineup consistently over a 16-game season. Teams don't mind having him on the roster but are always looking to upgrade.

I still think we are going to address this in the draft. There are several starting caliber LB's that could be snatched in the early rounds.

Simply put - when healthy, we have one of the best LB cores in the NFL. Not a lot of depth though so if two of our starters get injured, we suck at LB.

We def need to build some depth on the defense and at LB.

Thomas Davis is the Bob Sanders of LBs...simply put you can't continue to talk about when he is healthy.

i love TD and what he brings to the table when healthy, but anyone expecting him to be a major contributor for more than 3-4 games next year is frankly naive. He just can't stay healthy and its a shame. I wish we would come to grips with that as an organization and not throw around ridiculous contracts that hinder our ability to sign HEALTHY players when we need them. A few quality backup/journeymen who have no previous health concerns would fit the bill here more than a more skilled guy with an injury riddled past.......

Omar Gaither anyone? :(

Erin Henderson, Wesley Woodyard are two more names that could get looked at thru FA.

This.

And everyone assumes that Davis and Beason are going to be healthy. If you do not think that we need two starting caliber LB's and extra depth, you are sadly mistaken.

The best thing we can do for our Labs this year is to get another DT in FA so they are not getting plowed over by G all day long.

A raw rookie won't aid anything. Current DTs likely will be better with a season under their belt and an actual offseason. But I do think we need another Ron Edwards caliber DT to be added in

Would love to have both of these guys.

Anyone who thinks that Connor was our best linebacker last year isn't worth reading anything that they type for analysis.
