Report: Panthers To Take Blackmon If He Falls To 9....

I'd rather wait and take Rueben Randle in the 2nd.

you should meet the guy who wears those chops...

I like Blackmon A LOT. I do not think he is the guy to push us of DL in this particular draft though. We are so needy for a pass rush right now it would take something extraordinary to justify making the move. To most JB is just that. I admit I did not follow him enough to give a definite yes or no and feel very confident about it.

I can say this. If a defensive coach like Riv signs off on it knowing what I think our needs are one or all of the following must be true:

-the defensive line is in better shape than I thought, particularly the soph DT's and Hardy/Applewhite combo

-the confidence in Gettis, Lafell, or both is not where I thought it was

- Blackmon is just a bad mofo/

Blackmon please. Coples will be Vernon Gholston 2.0. A good build doesn't make a good football player. Blackmon is a monster; if we have a shot at him it should be a hands-down no brainer pick.

That said, I'm not in any way expecting it to actually happen. He'd have to make it past the Rams and Jags, which is EXTREMELY unlikely as both have a desperate need at WR.

Blackmon is a bad mofo, but this draft will have a lot of talent at our two biggest needs in the top of round two. Either Worthy, or Still should still be on the board at DT, as well as CB's Robinson, and Jenkins. Trading Cox for one of those DT's or CB's and getting Blackmon to boot....no brainer....

I like the Crabtree comparison. Good but not special

THIS!

I cant imagine drafting a WR in the top 10 that isnt a a freak.

He is short at 6'1 and doesnt have elite speed.

With how deep this WR class is we be dumb as hell to take Blackmon or Floyd in the first!

We need defense!

Our offense would be on the Packers level with the return of Gettis and Blackmon.

No it would be better seeing as our ground game is better, we would have a balanced attack with to many weapons to focus on just one, Steve Smith would be deadly out of the slot.

While I agree on the need for defense if he is there he is the BPA.

4.4 speed great hands solid after the catch, and as a panthers fan you should know height will not hinder desire.
