got to say i'm not loving the idea of more rookie OL starting. i get tired of watching them on rollerskates their first year and then reading all the whining about how they suck.

can we get some vet OL to come in, please? esp. at OG.

interior Dline and OG...i want vets. get someone who can hit the ground running rather than skating.

lol Coop is going to go in the top half of the first round. He entered the season #2 at OG and I've seen some places say he has passed Chance Warmack of Bama as the #1 OG.

For example: http://www.nationalf...-Prospects.html

Now, I don't think we use a top 3 pick on an OG. If we can trade down to the middle of the first round, sure, but not a top 3 pick.


The 2nd critique is the one I had seen before. He has improved from a zone blocking guy to a more dominant presence apparently. Still, lets get an RG through free agency and improve LT in the draft.

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


Love that strategy.

thx - honestly I don't really see the Panthers signing any of those players. Clady, Long, and Albert are going to break the bank.

I could see the Pats letting Vollmer walk but I'd be hesitant to invest $$$ into a guy with back issues. Same with Sam Baker.

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


Hurst will play his senior season at UNC.

I used to be on the Secodary train hard...

But the past couple games we've seen Cam running for his life too much...

We need OLine now...it's kind of a big deal in today's NFL

Regardless of how you feel about UNC their O-line play has been good and we definitely need depth there. I wouldn't take him in the first and I'd be hesitant to take him early in the second but if we got a mid to late second round pick and he was available I wouldn't be opposed to it.
