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.

another reason to get rid of his behind, you right we dont know what Gettis can bring since he hardly seen the field. but i also believe that a WR needs to be brought in early since Murphy is a FA and the other guys just seem to be #3s and maybe 2s.

a OLB should be brought in later in the draft, no ealier than the 5th round.

Kenny Tate. Although I like him more at SS than OLB.

Oh ok. If we draft a LB before the 5th round I'm just giving up on this franchise. It best be a safety and a lineman in the first two.
