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....

I completely agree with taking the best WR in the draft in that situation.

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.
