With Joeckel likely gone, I think we got our next franchise LT..

So being bored I was looking at Walterfootball for draft prospects outside the top 5 incase we pick closer to 8-12, I saw them mocking Taylor Lewan to Miami at 15, hes the next LT after Joeckel. So I went and dug up film on him on youtube and this guy is a absolute beast! This is a good 8 minute vid and he just manhandles his guy big time. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=2EhJdcnRBxo

Thoughts on Taylor Lewan? I dont watch college ball so does anyone else know much about him? He looks like a stud in that vid

I honestly think A&M's RT Jake Matthews is better (including as a LT). He's extremely athletic, and really just needs to bulk up some. Has great instincts and footwork....

Can someone tell me why we still talking OT? It's not even a need for us.

Let me list needs in order:

(1) FS

(2) DT

(3) WR

(4) RG

(5) CB

(6) OT

I love Lewan in a situation if we could trade down and get a 2nd rd in return. But to just single handily take an OT in the 1st is NUTS!

I can somewhat agree. I would say WR maybe Keenan Allen or Justin Hunter in the 1st

I am ALMOST as certain we're not taking a LT with our first pick in the draft as I was last year that we weren't going to take a MLB with our first pick...

Hopefully I'm right this time (not that I regret being wrong last time..).

I think CB should be higher on that list

You're suppose to draft your tackles early on. Joeckel and Warmack are the only can't miss prospects as far as offensive linemen go, I'm not really interested in any other names at this point.

If we find ourselves in the 6-10th pick range, we need to look at Dee milliner, Sheldon Richardson, Jonathan Hankins, chance Warmack.

Because Gross is playing well, as is Bell.

Seems simple from where I'm sitting.

Everywhere else I read the analysts feel like we definitely need a LT. Gross is not the player he was and I don't think Bell is a longterm answer. Safety is the worst position on the field for the Panthers, but there is no one good enough to draft in the top 10.

Tom Coughlin has a philosophy..invest high round talent on both Offensive and defensive lines bc they can help mask other defencies on the team.

It worked in Jacksonville..Mark Brunell was avg but had some great games. Their Defensive line is stout....just as NYG is on offense. Eli is upright and they can run/pass on virtually anyone.

Its not sexy and the WR/DT cannot be ignored but the OT is top priority. This whole season would be different if our O-line play was solid.

If Gross could take a restructure and go to RT it would be an ideal situation drafting a LT. Now if a Jake Long is availible just shell out the cash...and draft best athlete at DT/WR. Go FS in top 3 rounds(NOT A CB TO CONVERT)
