Offensive line

I know that Byron Bell is doing well at RT and a lot of people want to cut Jordan Gross. But as a temporary fix until Gross' contract is up why not draft a future LT in the first and move Jordan to RT and move Bell to RG.

Why would that be good or bad?

And I remember debating about taking a OG early in the drafty last year. One huddle member constantly was arguing about that history have shown that you don't take OG early until the mid to late rounds (I.E., Jahri Evans, Carl Nicks etc). Funny how many mocks here now have us taking an OG either 1st or 2nd round next year (

I just want to know why because if memory seres me right he was a guard in college right

Left tackle, really should be his position in the league, very upright player and much better pass blocker than run blocker. Jordan Gross was never a special LT, was a better RT. Right guard you want a guy with good feet and athletisism for pulling but also a physical guy who can dominate the guy in front of him.

Think we have talked this to death already, but doubt at 10-12 spot, we have a great choice for LT

College is different from Pro. Beason was a dominant OLB at the U, but he clearly isn't able to play OLB as well as when he's playing Mike for us.

Bell has become a solid RT and that have become his best suited position.

If you want an OG, take a Barrett Jones in the 2nd. But please dnt move Bell to RG.

I was wrong he was a tackle in college so It wouldn't make much sense to move him inside.

star in the first and fluker in the 2nd

My only problem with that is we're not taking one of the several good looking WR prospects there. I also think RG is a bigger problem than LT on the OL.

Fully agreed.

I want Star or Hankins in the 1st then a WR/FS in the 2nd.

OG is also a much more needed position than LT. I still can't see why many members are calling for a franchise LT after "one" poor game vs Denver. If we go LT 1st, that'll be the stupidest decision making by a GM in Panthers history. What are we going to do with Gross and Bell?

If we don't go DT 1st, it better be a WR.

The RT position is a position that is your best run blocker. He's a guy that can strafe off the line quickly (meaning his feet positioning has to be great) and a guy that also never gets caught flat-footed.

The RG is a guy that needs to come off the ball low, with a powerful punch, either knocking the defender back, opening up a lane, or tucking behind the RT and getting out into space, low enough to clear out LBers.

Bell is more of the former. He's got nimble feet, but he's not fast. He's got decent technique, can swat away defenders, but plays upright. He doesn't come off the ball low, or with an incredibly powerful punch, meaning he needs to be a guy on the outside.

10-12 I want Keenan Allen, D Milliner- maybe Chance Warmack.

I'm starting to like the idea of drafting Warmack.

I've heard from numerous scouts that he could be the best guard prospect of all time, better than Steve Hutchinson.
