Ranking Panther Needs for 2013 Draft
Posted 16 October 2012 - 12:15 PM
I agree with SOJA a few posts back that WR is pretty much an early or nothing proposition this year. We have zero speed at the WR1/2 position and a rotation at WR3 consisting of a bunch of mid-late round project guys. If there's a #1 type in the first round, grab him and try to address FS/CB in the second (depending on what we do in FA). Otherwise, ignore WR and focus on the secondary, DT and OG.

Based on the perceived quality of talent in the draft, you address 2 of the following positions with quality free agents and 2 of them with our top draft picks. I haven't started looking at potential draft picks or free agents so I can't make any predictions.
I can tell you right now without looking there will be poo as far as quality WRS on the free agent market. That is unless the Steelers can't came to an agreement with Mike Wallace....

EDIT: Also forgot Bowe and Jennings, but I doubt any of them (Wallace, Bowe, Jennings) hits FA tbh. Most likely imo would be Jennings, just due to the surplus of talented WRS Green Bay has, as well as their ability to just plug people in to the position due to Aaron Rogers....

so essentially this is a great year to go BPA.
True. There are three guys I could see being the first WR taken--and are actually probably all legit no. 1 material, this year. Ironically, or luckily, this is a great year for S, DT, and corner.

Right now, I believe we need more defensive help, mainly in the secondary. Offense would have to be that LT position mainly because Gross isn't getting any younger. His age is showing lately.
Defensive tackle again, I used to think this was a huge need. It is a need still. But Edwards, Dwan, has been such a great addition and he has some tread left too.
Finally WR, LaFell is showing he's a great #2-3. That's it. We need a legit #1. Smith needs to play that slot all day.

But in the draft
bc you gotta take BPA. Youre not going to take a FS ahead of Star, Hankins or Jenkins if you have the chance to.
I pretty much agree exactly with what you said, with the only caveat being if there's a WR rated a little higher than the DTs available to us we could (should) take a strong look at him.
