...is not out of the question imo especially with a new coaching staff.

I think Sean Porter would be a really intriguing option at OLB to replace Anderson/Philips or whatever we do out there. I understand Beason/Keek/TD is a possibility but Considering two of those players' injury history and our less than spectacular coverage skills in the unit, I think we should be looking for that hybrid type (i.e. Von Miller, Wagner) to take a gander at that can blitz, cover the flanks, and go 1 on 1 with the athletic TEs in the league.

Before something I expect to be said is said, YES we have other pressing needs, but I don't see a long term option at either OLB right now and many defenses are growing more into the hybrid sets. I think this could be wise looking beyond just next season.

What say you? And again, not in the first...but about OLBs beyond it. Cheers

I wouldn't call Von Miller a hybrid type player

I been thinking about the same thing for weeks now and I've been eyeing at Porter also. The only thing is I was hoping he fall into the 4th, which likely won't happen.

Yeah I personally think we should look elsewhere early (obviously) but always like to think of what we can do in the later rounds. I was trying to look at the guys that are 4-3 capable and strong in coverage.

I'd love to take an OLB in the 4th. If not I'd go with a TE like Fauria.

I think OLB is a position we need to consider. Especially if a great one falls into our lap and is BPA. We definitely have bigger needs though. Won't be mad with another stud line backer though

Without a 3rd, we will have to make our picks count and unfortunately would not have the luxury of taking an LB unless in the 6th or 7th.

D could use a DT and CB. Not sure with Gamble's cap number and age that he won't be cut or traded. Would just as soon move him and let the young guys continue to get better.

Oline is a major need at G and OT. Trenches and then secondary needs to be our focus

I agree. O-Line and WR are definitely my early preferences. Jake Matthews, Eric Fisher, Lewan, & Oday Aboushi will probably be in play for us at OT. I dunno about guard and I'm not vehemently against taking Warmack but I just don't think a new GM will go G with his 1st pick at his new job.

I think our first will be a OT, WR, or DT

The 3rd was totally worth it for Olsen but it makes us have to be very smart with our first 2 picks. I was looking at the guys that could be late rounders at OLB and a few look interesting: Cornelius Washington, DeVonte Holloman, & Kenneth Tate

I totally hate the way the Panthers operate at year end. I know everyone wants an WR, but with Gettis, Adams and Pilares never getting a sniff of the field, who knows what we have on the shelf already?

I know Pilares is now gone, but why not get these other guys on the field? Injuries have given us the chance to see some of our secondary guys and evaluate them. Several have unexpectedly risen and other have not made the grade. Wish the Panthers were a forward looking team and did the subsitution thing on their own and not just because of injury.

But, Rivera wants to keep his job and most fans want to beat their chest at clobbering losers like Oakland, so, guess we will never know

So this guy that can cover TE's, rush the passer, and cover the flanks will be available in the 4th-5th and be better than Beason or TD?? That seems improbable

That's not what I'm saying buddy. He'd be a 2nd rounder. Just looking through prospects, looking at all possibilities.
