If anyone didn't know, Carrier was hired last season and is the director of player engagement of the Carolina Panthers.

Wow, I was high on Barron pre draft but, only thought we'd take him if we traded down. I think he would've been a reach at 9, let alone where Tampa got him at 7.

Also i don't think Carrier should be giving out that kind of info.

So much for the impression Hurney and guys have been pushing that Kuechly was their guy from the start.

I'm thinking Carrier won't have a job much longer.

Where's the rest of the source on this besides a twitter quote from some random dude lol.

Saying this makes no sense, and I seriously hope no one employed by our org is dumb enough to do so publicly.

If this is true, then I suspect we will pick up a starting quality safety when one becomes available and drop Martin like a bad habit

Thanks.

Guy is a former panther, shame. You'd think he would already know our front offices way of doing things.

I would have taken Claiborne over Keuchley.

I would have taken Kalil over Kuechley.


Baron went first, so what the heck was his point. Barron was not available when we picked. Kinda stupid to make a comment like this when there is no point.

No poo.

That sure is a good way to show support for the player they just drafted...

I guess they are coverning their bases if Luke were to some reason not reach his potential, they can say "hey, we didnt want him anyway..."

I loved Barron, would have been happy with him.

I really don't see why he'd admit to that. There's no reason to make Luke think he was our second choice and we only took him because we couldn't get the guy we really wanted.
