Waiting past the 2nd round ......all we get are projects

Manning, Marshall, captain all say hi.

There are many more that aren't Panthers.

Lose my poo if we take LB with the 9th,


why? if beason and davis go down again are you comfortable with james anderson and two unknowns starting at the position?

Lose my poo if we take Poe.

I'm down with Claiborne, Coples, Kuelchy, DeCastro, or even Blackmon.

I am speaking in terms of odds...I am not saying people that have been drafted 4th or later cannot come in and start.

We may not know about Beason until after the draft.We know we need a cb now.Obviously either the fo had either confidence that Beason would come back or new they would have to get another mlb when they let Connors go.

we may not know about beason until after the preseason.

if i'm GM i don't take the chance. defensive line isn't great but it could be solid. we've got hogan coming off an injury in the secondary and this draft is notoriously deep at CB. taking a linebacker is a smart decision.

Would anyone be pissed if we reached and took Gilmore at 9 if Claiborne is gone?

I'm good with cailborne, cox, maybe coples, trade down , kuelchy { but if beason back to himself kuelchy goes to olb not beason}. }kd be pissed if we pick a wr or olinemen at 9. I rather take the risk on brockers or poe then that.

You said it yourself...could be solid.

Just like our LB situation.

You don't take LB's in the 43 that high, their value is just not there.

First of all, Kuechly is an absolute stud and is not a reach at 9. Will be the next Zach Thomas. 10-year pro-bowl starter in the middle.

Second, he has absolutely none of the issues other players that are being discussed at this pick have (Poe - crappy game tape, Coples - questions about effort/ethic, DeCastro - reach, etc.)

Third, linebacker is an absolute position of need for us and Rivera asks a lot of linebackers in his defensive schemes. Not to be hyperbolic but our linebacking corp has been absolutely DECIMATED over the past year.

Finally, Gamble had one of the best seasons in the league last year. Clearly, Capt. is not going to cut it, but don't forget about Hogan. There is still potential there.


Personally, I will be crushed if we don't take Kuechly at nine and a corner/tackle in the 2nd.

If Smith goes down are comfortable with Lafell and Gettis? If Jordan Gross goes down are you okay with Lee Ziemba and Campbell? If Kalil goes down are you okay with Hangartner? If Chris Gamble goes down are you okay with Captain Munnerlyn? If Cam goes down are you okay with Anderson and Clausen?

Fail for 2 posts to make 1 point.


Also wanted to throw in there that I wish all this hype around Poe would die. Does it not worry anyone that a man that size with that kind of freakish athletic ability couldn't do a thing in crappy Conference USA in a game?
