Let's say you could see into the future and you knew for a fact that if we didn't build a great run blocking O-line with this draft, then we would have another losing season. But if we did build a great run blocking O-line, then we'd have a winning season. What would you do draft wise?
We go DT 1st, and non O-line in the 2nd, and we're losing 10+ games next season imo. Cam is not even close to being able to carry our offense. 2 or 3 season from now, maybe. Next season, we had better have a great rushing attack, or around 10+ losses imo.
The best run blocking OG in the draft I've seen is Chance Warmack. Get the rushing lanes open, and send the expensive RB though the lane. Start winning. If there's an option to trade down and pick him up, we had better take it. If we draft a DT with weight issues, then that's just sad. Please don't screw this up Panthers.
What if we go DT and take a non OLINE in the 2nd, and that lead to a winning season? And if taking a OG and we're losing 10+games bc we're getting run over week in and weeks out?
Star is the best run stuffer I seen since Ngata? Stuffs the run and make life easier for Kuechly.
But yea if we could trade down and add a 2nd rd, HELL I'll go Warmack in the 1st. I'm find with that. I just don't really see why you'll use a top5-10 pick on an OG though. I don't see any OG going until after top 15-20 picks, so let's not be a team that reach for one.
