Which way do we go?

10 posts in this topic

Which way do we go if both Joeckel and Star are off the board when we are on the clock? Personally, if either of these guys aren't a Panther next season I will be disappointed and it's looking like we will have to have a top 5 pick to even have a chance at getting them. These next few weeks will go a long way in determining our draft position.

Who are the other very real possibilities assuming the likely top two on our draft board are gone when we pick? I'd say it comes down to:

Johnathan Hankins NT Ohio State

DeMarcus "Dee" Milliner CB Alabama

Taylor Lewan OT Michigan

Keenan Allen WR California

Damontre Moore DE Texas A&M

Chance Warmack G Alabama

Tough decisions all around for the new GM. If it is indeed Ross from the Giants, I can see Moore being a real possibility after what he has done in New York. Personally, I think I'd take Lewan and either go WR or S in the second and address either WR or S in free agency depending which isn't taken in the second round.

Thoughts?

If Hankins is available I would be comfortable with us taking him in the first and then a WR in the second and FS through free agency.

If he is not available I would prefer to get the best WR in the draft in the first so we have a legit #1 WR to grow with Cam. I really do not want another season of ineptitude on offense. I think this draft should lean towards offense in general (much like last year leaned defense with Luke/Alexander/Norman), but I understand the talent Hankins/Star have may be such that you cannot pass either up.

We would probably go with Hankins in the scenario.

I'm really starting to like Warmack though. He could be the best offensive guard prospect of all time.

Our line would be NASTY.

My wish list after Star and Joeckel would be in this order: Hankins, OT (if there's one as close to Joeckel as Hankins is to Star), Warmack, top WR.

In that situation, I'd choose Hankins in the 1st, trade down in the second to pick up a mid to late 2nd round pick along with 3rd round pick to pick up a WR and FS.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
