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.

    • Between Hurd and Dobbs Tennessee had the two most overrated recruits in college football. Kamara was so much better than Hurd
    • He's got the height at 6'4". But I'm looking at arm length and wingspan and looking at the other DEs we've have targeted recently (Hardy, Alexander, Horton, Ealy, Miley, Edwards, Delaire). Delaire is the only one under 34" arms and he seems more like a pass rush specialist. 
    • I see what your saying and I hope that's not the case. I personally don't see KB as a player that's going to lead the league in catches or yards. I see him not as the stereotypical receiver but as a player that can be known as the one who makes the really tough, clutch catches. The dangerous red zone target that a defense has to key on but will still be deficult to stop. The guy that makes the hard fought 1st down catch on 3rd and long when we really need it late in the game. Dependable.  I believe he has the potential to be that guy. I hope at least.
