What The "experts" Are Saying About Our Draft

Recommended Posts

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

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.

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 agree, but the national media doesn't realize that DT wasn't even an area of need.

There is almost always comparable players. And BPA subjective as hell anyway.

Lets say you have a team stacked with great LB's and nothing really at DT.

Prospect A LB - ranked 23rd on your big board

Prospect B DT - ranked 26th on your big board.

You take player B.

You have to draft off a combination of talent and need. You cant ignore either aspect.
