Young Offensive Playmaker

Posted

Last season was a complete turn around for the offense compared to the previous 2-14 season. The key addition of 1st round draft pic Cameron Newton and offseason acquistions like U of Miami alum Jermery Shockey and Greg Olson took the league by surprise. Steve Smith a talented player loss was now found in new offensive system with competent QB play was able to top the charts statistics of his respective position. That being said the Carolina Panther ended the season 6-10 with 8 out 10 losses comming in heartbreaking fashion. The defense was riddled by injury and the run defense had more holes than a mesh strainer. Now, weeks from the draft with defensive need a must we might have to reach for a defensive player....When the best player available at our position would most likely be an offensive player. we must make a trade.

My money is on Micheal Floyd....less three and outs and the best defense is a good offense...the nfl is changing. Sooner than later we are be watching professional flag footbal....Corners and recievers....

if someone falls to us, sure. otherwise the offense is loaded with plenty of young talent, and the attention is better spent on the defense and special teams that lost us so many of those games.

Floyd wouldn’t be a bad choice, the team wants their young star QB to succeed and they are one injury away from having a Gettis-Lafell-Pilares receiving corps.

Rumored the Vikes may even be interested in Floyd.

My question is, if Colby Fleener is available at #40, do we pull the trigger?

Rumor is the Vikes want to trade down badly

We've got too many defensive holes, I don't know if I'd want a WR at 9. Smith, LaFell, Gettis and Pilares + our TE's, + our RB's + Cam. 1st) We need a solid CB. 2nd) pass rushing DE or pocket collasping DT. 3rd) LB, although I'd hate to pass on Kuechly and 4th) a Punter. Everything else is gravy.

I would rather draft the best defensive player on the board, whoever it might be.

But, if the best player on the board is a WR like Blackmon or Floyd, I would rather draft them than to reach for a player because of need.

Really good franchises dont reach for need, they take the BPA.

Pilares hasn't done diddly poo. Gettis ran the deep vertical well 2 years ago......

We are still too heavily dependent on an aging Steve Smith. One who has been known to have things break on him fairly frequently

I agree on the defensive holes....but I wouldn't be upset with one of the 2 WRs
