Captain Morgan

What position do we take in the first round?

69 posts in this topic

Logan Thomas QB, VT to back up Cam Newton for the future.

SIKE!

A receiver (Hunter, Allen, Woods), Safety (Reid, McDonald, Lester, Jefferson), Tight End (Eifert)?, DT and DE (needs more pressure and can never have enough pressure)

Please take care of DE/DT in free agency.

We need young, speedy, aggressive DB's. Depending on how Norman pans out will determine whether we look for a free safety or a corner.

I think LaFell has proven to be our #2, and Smitty isn't going anywhere. WR can wait till the later rounds.

We need to replace Hangartner in FA or early in the draft.

for the sake of this thread, assume the bpa is the position you think we need the most..

so heading into game 3, it's hard to make a consensus from the posts above, but it seems

like WR is first,

dt is second,

and DB of some sort is 3rd.

let's see how we feel Friday morning.

Yeah I get that but like I said, we have much bigger issues. I am definitely more concerned with our secondary than our line. Ron Edwards is signed for another year or 2 and I'm sure Dwan isn't going anywhere. I'd rather sign another DT through FA than draft another bust in the draft. The only way we would get a good one is if we get a top 5-10 pick and take the best one or 2 available. Draft somebody that serves a real need in the first round. If there is a good DT in the second then take him. I get that the game is one in the trenches but our oline has bigger issues than the dline.

I don't see it being a DT. I'm not going to be gunning for one a third draft in a row. (Dareus, Cox,...)

DE yes...though I don't know much about the talent in that area coming out. Okafor?

TJ McDonald at FS...yes, Justin Hunter at WR sure. We've got a ways to go though

I have heard this a deep draft for D line talent so I'm banking on getting a playmaker there. I would LOVE to get a blue chip safety, I just don't see us picking high enough to. I think OT and DT are both weak, and old.. A left tackle wouldn't surprise me at all

I like your thinking there. I just don't think we are going to sign any good fa's. Haven't in a lonnng time and we sure as hell can't afford it.

I'm going to say Safety or Tackle at this point.

Don't know why everyone keeps saying DE... CJ, Hardy, FA, Keiser, and Applewhite are going a hell of a job by committee.

And I feel like O-line is more of an important issue than DT, but DT quality really falls after the first round vs O-line quality (look to 2011's draft for proof).

I think it goes DT, Oline, S, CB, CB, TE
