Right we'll go from #5 to what #4 or 3?

While the defense gets handled every game again, wow Luke is gonna save us eh?

He can help PREVENT us from going from #5 backwards. I know this isn't a position we are used to being in, but when a superstar QB falls in your lap you spent significant resources protecting them. Deal with it.

then why wasn't he taken in the top 20 then? people said the same thing about jimmy. I know, apples and oranges, but still.. I am dumbfounded...


Because he came out of a Div II school. Film shows he is a bit raw but with an impossibly high ceiling. Panthers met with him a few times so I'm sure they felt comfortable he'd be able to learn how to play guard in the NFL.

Pick is not IMO the home run hitter that we got yesterday but is solid, he seemed to be rather athletic for his size, maybe the thought is someone who could run with Cam if he were to take off down field, IDK, I think I would have rather had Worthy

Did not see this pick coming at all. I hope he is good. He looks good. Once Jenkins went off the board one pick before us I didnt have a preference for this pick. At least it will protect our franchise QB.

I thought our issue was not being able to stop other teams from scoring...

this move blows IMO.



Please stfu no one gives a poo.

Every year this site goes through the same poo, you're nothing unique. No one gives a fug and I cannot stress that enough.


Hahahaha you sad, sad man. I'll remember your name when Silatolu is a pro bowler.

Ya'll need to relax. This guy's huge and he's a beast. And he does help us out at a position that we're thin at. Maybe it's not as big a need as corner, but it still was a need. His potential is through the roof. He can come in and start from day 1 and help us get back to the power running game with Stew, D-Will, and Tolbert and protect our Franchise QB. Clearly our Front Office did some work before hand and this guy must have fit our plans more than Johnson, Worthy, Still, etc.

Was I hoping for DT, CB, or WR? Yes. Does that make this a bad pick? No.

There's still plenty of draft to go...

There are reasons people are passing on these DTs.


There is a reason why a lot of people are passing on defensive linemen in general in this draft, there simply aren't many good ones. Upshaw was the last good one on the board.

Feel better after reading the first four pages of this thread. In Rivera, I trust.

Well G is a need....

Has the tools and the extra bonus of playing like he wants to kill opponents.

Sucks to have so many needs.
