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.

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


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.

I will kill someone if we take a OG in the 1st or especially that high in the draft without making any trades; adding picks with it.

I would also be severely disappointed if we took Warmack in the top 5 where we're drafting but if we're picking in the teens for whatever reason he'd definitely be worth a look if Star and Hankins are gone.

I think so, yeah. I think that a guard is what the offensive line is missing. When we had Wharton and Hangartner, we had one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL. Without that, we're breaking down on almost every play.

Not to mention opening holes for the running backs.
