Honestly, anyone who thinks we should pick a guard at #9 is just NFL-stupid.


It amazes me how many people would have loved signing Nicks for $50 million (if we could have afforded) and then others come on and say something like that. If you have to insult people to make an argument you've already lost it. G's are probably the most undervalued position in football. Give me Decastro over any of these potential picks (aside from Claiborne) as he is probably the best OL in the draft (Kalil being a LT obviously makes his draft value higher). He will be the Chiefs pick if we don't get him and thats a whopping 2 f'ing spots later.

Yeah, that wasn't a good post from me. Sometimes I allow my frustrations to get the better of me. I think it would be foolish for the Panthers to draft a guard at 9, given our needs and what's likely to be available on the defensive side of the ball at that point. I feel this way because we had a top 5 offense last year and lost Shockey and Wharton, but are adding other pieces, including an impressive wr threat coming off ir and several OLinemen coming off ir. Compared to our defensive needs...virtually everywhere, I can't understand the logic of drafting a guard at that spot. If Kalil were to magically fall to us, I'd be ecstatic, but that isn't happening. I'm concerned that people are thinking that Beason, Edwards, and Davis are going to come back at 100% and magically cure all our defensive problems. Neither Beason nor Davis will be 100%. Torn Achilles tendons are devastating and I don't know of any professional athlete that has ever come back 100% from it. Davis...well...I think he's gonna be playing on a ghost of a knee. I think Beason may be able to be 90-95%, which is better than most LB's. But I think one of our draftees or signees is likely to be playing in TD's spot the vast majority of the year. Our defense will be better, but we need another playmaker or two.

BTW, I wasn't one of those who wanted to sign Nicks. ;)

So the Tampa coach put Bloundt on notice, and said that Richardson could definitely be a "bell-cow" back for them...do it Tampa! Take him at #5...

With our penis slang D-line of Johnson, Hardy, and Norwood...I think it's pretty obvious that we'll be reaching for Cox.


This post has swayed me...

Fletcher Cox will be the pick!

I think Claiborne falling to us is a pipe dream. I hope I'm wrong but evenif TB doesn't get him the Rams probably will (and boy will there fan base be on cloud 9 if that happens after that raping of a trade).
