Offensive line

Arguing is pointless. I have a different opinion.

Is Center a problem? Yes. Is RG a problem? Yes. Is LT a problem? Yes. Is LG a problem? Yes.

It's not just the center.

Besides, hasn't it been the consensus for years that drafting BPA is the best thing to do?

Lol what? When did we argued?

But

Is DT a bigger problem for the future? YES.

Is WR as big a problem, if not bigger than RG? YES

Is LT a problem? Somewhat.

And 125.99999% agreed with taking BPA in top5-10. But no OG is going to be BPA at that spot. Tell me if I'm wrong.

David Decastro was a pretty damn good OG prospect and he wasn't taken till no.24 to Pittsburgh. Should any OG prospect be taken what is looking like top5-10 to us would be a terrible stupid call.

If we trade down to around the mid to later and add picks, go ahead and take an OG. Or if we take one in the 2nd I'm fine with it, but top5-15? It's a stupid dumb decision.

Chuck just likes sexy players.

And you're arguing that a DT is more of an impact in the 4th quarter with two minutes left than a stud offensive linemen that will keep Cam clean and give him the time to get his targets the ball.

A good offensive guard gives your QB time to let his his receivers routes develop. With a QB as good as Cam, you don't need super star receivers. You just need to give him time to find the open target.

I know you didn't play football, but do you know how hard it is to get to the ball to ANYONE when a 300 pound man is coming at you 3 seconds after the snap?

Talk about times, did I see last game vs Chiefs. How much times Cam got sitting in the pocket and no scrub receivers got opened?

I like how you always go assuming things. I guess you played QB in pop Warner then since you know the feeling of a 300lbs kid?

Also i like how im always the first person you try to find on here when youre back. Where have you been for weeks too? Ive heard a lot of rumors about you since you been gone.

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.

Gross should be cut this offseason. Not just because of his rapidly declining play, more so than just "one" poor game vs Denver, but because his cap figure is extremely high and would help save us from some of the other horrible contracts that are in the midst of haunting us. Gamble too, and I LOVE me some #20.

I wouldn't mind cutting Gross and Gamble if we were to take Joeckel in the first and sign maybe a Cason or Sean Smith.

Rumors about me haha? What is this high school?

I'm trying to talk football but you don't know enough, and your opinion can never been swayed.

I just think finding a quality OG is too easy to spend such a high pick on one. If it was LT or C, then I'd agree, but OG and RT aren't that big of a priority to that high in the draft.

I'm glad someone understands this.

And, to go further from what you said, I would prefer to have a strong OG, simply because I want our next coach to have a dominant run game. That is the way to clinch the game in the 4th quarter, when teams are trying their best to get the ball back. Just give it to a running back, have a dominant center (which we have) and a dominant guard (which we're lacking severely) open a giant hole and let the back pick up at least five.

We're in a time when the NFL is changing. The receiver position is incredibly important still, but less so now. There's all kinds of late-draft pick receivers becoming stars. The offensive line is becoming increasingly important as the position of QB becomes more important.

I agree. RG is more a need than LT at this point. But not a big enough need to take it in the 1st. I want DT/ WR in the 1st then we can look for a OG in the 2nd or in the 4th.

Take one in the 2nd or 4th.

The same can be said for a DT, we can get one in the 2nd or 4th.

Not even close! Who's in the 2nd that can be as good as a Star or Hankins? Maybe Ford. But Jesse or Sylvester Williams? No way

2nd round OG: Barret Jones, Warford, Gabe Jackson, Bailey

2nd-4th OT: Fisher? Dallas, Aboushi, Fluker Williams
