Our Falling Draft Pick + Keenan Allen

28 posts in this topic

I've been thinking (along with many here) we are gonna be a top-5 pick this year but we've got 5 games left with the Raiders, Chiefs, the flailing Chargers, and rematches against the Saints and Falcons on the board.

On the other end, you have the likes of the Browns, Raiders, Eagles, Chiefs, & Jags pretty much already ahead of us pick wise atm. Even more so, the Jets and Cardinals are the two other falling teams that may slip ahead of us by the season's end at the least.

So in this regard, we could be looking at a pick somewhere around 7-10 yet again.

It then got me thinking if the likes of Star, Joekel, and Hankins are off the board the top lineman on both ends are basically out of play.

Given this situation, Keenan Allen could be right there for us and not a reach.

Would you do it if we are sitting 7-10 with no Star, Joekel, or Hankins?

I mean, I think its safe to say we're good at DE and I believe getting a CB/FS in the FA or later rounds is a better bet than getting another Jarrett/Colbert/DJ Hackett/Keyshawn/Murphy type god forbid. Also, we're now looking at the second tier lineman when compared to Star and Luke on both sides of the ball. Go skill position if so and pick the best WR in the draft.

So to summarize:

If we fall down the draft board, get the best wideout in the draft

No Star, Hankins or Joeckel = Panthers taking best WR available.

I'd rather get a stud DE, Jarvis Jones or Milliner. Why reach for a WR when the entire team needs an upgrade?

Jarvis Jones will be a top five pick, and DE is pretty set on this team. Milliner I can agree with, but Jarvis will be long gone if we're not in position to pick Joeckel or Lotulelei....

if the knee checks out fine, i would have no problems with taking Keenan there.

I wouldn't want to reach for a WR when we can get one in the second if need be. Need to get a bigtime impact player in round 1.

I'd love to have Keenan if those others aren't available.

Exactly why we should be targeting a WR this offseason.

    • you don't need rock hard facts to reasonably comment on what Nunes has done of late.   WH went to Nunes with a goal to distract away from where the House Intel Committee was going and the direction it was going with it all out in the public.   Nunes did just that.  He shut things down on the WH behalf so they could then figure out there next moves.  Because they know what Yates and company following up Comey would lead to. Eyeball test should tell any right left or middle person that Nunes is at this point not doing an investigation but doing the WH's bidding.  The fact he talks like a lying 8 yr old and acting totally out of character in how he has handled himself speaks volumes.       you want to know what people are so interested in everything? Because Trump and company are LITERALLY doing a coverup right now.  They aren't really hiding that.  They may technically have Spicer say it is outrageous and say stuff in the media.....but there ACTIONS are actually pretty obvious and bold IMO.  So it is only reasonable to want to know what it is they are covering up.   Because really Trump and company are the ones telling people there is something.  
    • Well two of those players are off our draft board so I'm going to give this a no
