While this season seems to be all over but the shouting (and enough of that has already started here on the Huddle!), I see that UNC's John Cooper is up for another national Dlineman award. He's a Wilmington product - played at John T. Hoggard High School - and has been pretty stellar for the Heels. What are your thoughts on the likelihood of him being available when our turn comes up in April., and how he might fit into the Panthers' defensive scheme?

Yeah dude Coop is a guard. Would love to have him and certainly fills a need.

OT James Hurst is also going to be a high draft pick.

Heels OL has been one of the best in the country and a big reason why Gio had one of the best seasons ever for a Carolina RB.

He's more of a zone blocking guard in the NFL from what I've heard. Not a huge kid, 6'3" and about 290 if I recall? Fug Hoggard in the ass. New Hanover High for the win.

Has OL shot up to #1 on the team needs list?

Personally: OL #1, Safety #2, WR #3, DT #4

I'm afraid it has.
Building a young talented line would do wonders for Cam.

People hate on Cam because he struggles under center.

Tom Brady would struggle under center here.

Coop is going in the first round and there is a high probability Hurst will be a first rounder as well.

Panthers prob gonna have a top 3 pick but I'd go OT over OG with a premium selection like that

No way you waste a top 15 pick on an OG. OT is a different story. You can get by with mediocre OG play. That's how guy like Jeremy Bridges last so long.

We just drafted a LG in Amini who probably just had his best game and was going against McCoy. I feel as though LT should be priority #1, swinging Gross over to RT to finish his career should fix this line. Gross had his best years at RT anyway.

Yep. I say RG via free agency and LT in the draft.

Yeah I agree - Cooper easily could be the first OG off the board but I don't think I'd invest our top 3 pick in him.
