Not bad, solid value pick at position of need. Good draft so far, some talented immediate impact guys on the first 2 days and some solid players to fill needs today.

That being said, we did give up too much for him.

He is NOT a reach here. 2nd real all American at a position of need.

Experts were saying he is great value here this morning.

Bitch when we fon't take a de and bitch when we do.


He was projected as a late round pick or udfa: http://www.draftcoun...k-Alexander.php

And we gave up picks for him.

You can't understand why some people may be upset yet you call others retarded? Frankly I'm tired of your schtick.

I hope he pans out and turns into what our FO thinks he can be, but it's understandable why others don't like the move.

Teams just know they can rape us. This is embarrassing. When will Hurney learn?

Fire this clown.

3rd rd grade DE...2nd team all-American. How is that a waste?


If he becomes a starter, we are all wrong. If he is a role player, we gave up a 3rd where you can get top quality guys, for a guy who would likely have been there in the 5th or 6th.

Tells me they think next year's 3rd will be a late pick. If they like the guy that much, I'm on board. We definitely needed a pass rusher.


It didn't work out that good with Armanti did it. I like pick, but am sure I would like a 3rd round DE next year plus the 180 this year better.

I think your to optimistic. You dont give up the future and a 3 at that for this guy when u have the next pick in the draft. If he's that great you take him with your next pick. you know what kind of value we got for a 3 last year? olsen. So if this guy doesnt produce at that kind of level its a bad pick. There were players like brandon marshall who went for a 3 or less. U sir are retarded.


Brandin Marshall is a head case and went for 2 thirds. Try again.

Yes they had the next pick , but wanted to add WR and pr there.

Not a fantastic move, but absolutely is not a bad move. Guy can rush the passer and that was a big need.

Did they think that when they traded away the second a couple years ago for edwards?

- 03/20/12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT RISER: Frank Alexander, DE, Oklahoma: A few weeks ago, football was the last thing on Alexander's mind as doctors at the Combine found a previously undiagnosed heart condition that kept the defensive end from working out in Indianapolis. But after furthers tests, those reports have proven to be false and he was able to participate in Oklahoma's pro day last Wednesday. He performed well in every drill, including a 4.76 40-yard dash time. Alexander also looked fluid in the 20-yard short shuttle (4.57), 3-cone drill (7.55), vertical jump (34.5") and broad jump (9'9"). He posted 24 reps on the bench press and measured well with 35 1/4-inch arm length and


83 1/2-inch wingspan


Not that bad of a pick, good measurables, produced last season. I can get behind it.

Panthers picks a LB and a G

Huddle: Fug you Hurney, its a pass first league and you need pass rush.

Panthers picks a DE:

Huddle: Fug you Hurney for reaching and trading for pass rush.

Was hoping for Crick or Malik Jackson. Saw that Josh Norris thinks he's a bum.
