You know who'd make a good safety? Thomas Davis.

Why would you say that? Seems weird to say that now.

Yeah not very good to let your #1 pick think he was our 2nd choice.

I think Kuechly has a level head and can think about it logically. I mean he was drafted at #9. Obviously there were players rated ahead of him or he would have gone #1, so he was bound to be SOMEONE'S 2nd choice. Maybe even 3rd.

I don't think Kuechly would be upset about it much, I just don't know why a Panthers official would say things that contradict what other guys have said.

The only reason I could imagine they would take Barron ahead of Kuechly is that we have far less established talent at safety than we do at linebacker. But I doubt Luke gives the tiniest crap about something as inane as this. He's a Panther now, and he wouldn't be in the NFL if he didn't believe in his own talent.

This is a total non issue. Most motor mouths on Sirius NFL had the defensive players ranked exactly the way they come off the board. What kuechly should be focused on is that once the Tannehill pick came in it took about 20 seconds for the Panthers are on the board to their pick is in. There was never any question of taking any time to discuss any trade offer. When he fell to us, we pounced.

Dumb thing to say, but it is interesting if it is true. Would you (Huddle) rather have Barron or Kuechly?

Personally I think Kuechly is a safer pick, and don't know if I'd pick a safety in the top ten unless I thought they had Ed Reed like potential. Not sure if Barron isn't just another Michael Huff (solid but nothing out of the ordinary)

Either way, if any decent safety gets cut this offseason look for the Panthers to show interest.

Also sorry Sherrod, but looks like you are going to have to play your ass off to get a roster spot

He said this on a Tampa radio show to create a buzz and make their fans feel special. I doubt he even ever saw our big board
