You know, your quotation marks lead me to believe the grades were bad. Good to see good grades. Hah.

Everybody seems to agree that we had a pretty good draft. I love all the picks. Live the Kuechly and Adams pick. But my favorite is the josh Norman guy. Love him

Loved all the picks. Now we need to get a DT in free agency and we are set

Very possible we sign a Free Agent DT because we're going to lose Wharton's cap hit in June.

Imo we stole Alexander. Adams has to improve his hands but we have two of the best in the game to help him develop with Smitty. Our new OL stud will crush fools. Kuechly is flat out a MONSTER! Great grades for a superb draft.

Yeah...It seems many of the "experts" loved what the Panthers did in the draft. Here's hoping it translates into an even better season this year for this team.

If you wanna use the term "expert" very losely, Kiper gave us a B overall, a C for need because we didn't take a DT and an A for value.

I hate when ppl assign grades based on need. drafting on need makes you reach for players. which means you get less value out of the ones you pick. also, listening to a lot of commentators leads me to believe that not a single one pays attention to the panthers more than to watch the highlights. all they talk about is us picking up a DT. while that was a weakness last season, it is easy to see that we are better off than last season. Ron Edwards is coming back, plus our two rookies have a year under their belt, and have a vet to rely upon now.

I think that this draft has the potential to be Hurney's best ever, as long as the wildcard Silatolu pans out.

Of course we wont know for sure until 3 years from now. 2008 looked good at first too, until Otah turned into a pansy.

Exactly. The good franchises in this league, take the most talented players availible, and then fill holes in FA.

I think that is what we did this year.
