OLine or DLine ?

71 posts in this topic

I'm on the Star bandwagon. Draft Oline in the second round if you have to.

You don't find stud LT's in the 2nd round.

You must take LT in the first if you are going OL or DL.

Draft another DT high. Sign a DT free agent and Keep Ron Edwards as a backup. Upgrade the LT and get some big run blockers not the athletic types, I'm talking Jeff Otah big.

The Panthers past philosophy has to go! You have to use the draft AND free agency. Ron Rivera will be successful somewhere else just like John Fox. Our problem has become quite obvious and it's the FO

So how are you going to draft a DT high (I assume you mean at the top of the first) AND upgrade the LT? You don;t find stud LT's outside the first round.....and no one lets a good LT go in FA.

You must sraft your LT.

Easy. Get the LT next year. I feel a lot better with Gross as our LT next year than R. Edwards or Fua as our NT.

OL - particularly LT is the #1 need on this team moving forward.

#2 - safety

#3 - WR

#4 - DT

We have to draft O-Line

This WR class looking weak to me

Seeing how bad our run D has been since Ron went down. A legit NT is a must. Then RG.

O-line for sure. There are some good DTs in this years free agency group. Terrance Knighton, Kevin Williams, Randy Starks, Alan Branch, Glenn Dorsey...Panthers need to sign a good one (not budget good, talent good), since our inability to draft and/or develop DT has been hurting us for how long now

Man, I tell ya, we really need both. We're in a real mess unless we can score in FA. We've needed to draft a DT for so long now it's just a mantra.

Your right, we may have to draft a LT with this top 5 pick we're going to have and get a DT in FA like we did with Buckner. We can't continue to ignore the interior of our lines and expect to go anywhere

#1 NT

#2 RG

With few exceptions, I go BPA or trade down if available. That said, the need for a good nose is perhaps greater than the needs on the o-line.

My gut feel is our o-line is much better than it's showed this year except for the obvious weakness at RG. Let these guys get in a rhythm run blocking and get them out of a 2 point stance the whole game, and I'll bet they look like a different unit.
