DT is a lock in the 1st round

Everyone will come around on Johnson by draft day.

Great measurables / Super athletic / Dominated some of the best pass rushers / And now is doing well at the senior bowl.

Is this draft class strong enough to trade for another fist round pick this year?

Just thinking two first rounders would be nice, combination of two of the following: WR OL DB DT.

And can easily hang another 15 lbs on his frame with no ill effects on performance

two first rounds in a trade uhhh maybe if you had a top 5 pick

i think panthers could trade from 14 to about 24 for a 2nd, 4th, and 6th somthing like that idk man......

eh, I wouldn't say lock but I think we will either go DT, O-line, or WR in the first so it's a third of a lock

What do Nick Fairley, Suh, Alualu, Glenn Dorsey, McCoy and Dareus have in common?

OH I KNOW !!!!! Let me answer, they are 1st round DT's who's teams still blow really hard despite their efforts. DT looks like a great investment....

Nothing is a lock, but DT is far and away my preference pretty much for the reasons you listed (and the fact our DTs are some of the worst as a group in the league).

Agreed!

NT's just dont have that big of an impact on the game ie its not hard to find guys to help stuff the run and hold the point of attack.

Really dont want a NT with our first pick until we shore up the OL, WR, and CB positions.

You can say the same thing about Joe Thomas, Jake Long, Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, etc etc etc. You have no point. The same can be said of any position but QB, and even then sometimes.

    • Jesus. A 3-4 OLB at #8? Two major off-field character concerns in the 2nd round? Another slow WR in the 3rd? Never. Gonna. Happen. There's at least a decent chance that his top three picks won't even be on our draft board. Gettleman has said numerous times in the past that guys who aren't scheme fits for us aren't on our draft board. There goes McKinley. Given our past with guys like Carruth and Hardy, there's zero chance that Mixon is on our board. Given Robinson's off-field issues involving a stolen gun, I'd say there's a better than average chance that he's not on our board either. You'd be hard pressed to come up with a more unrealistic mock draft for the Panthers if you set out to try to do just that.
    • I can't say that any one of those guys ends up a Panther.  I think if Cam is there at 40 (which I doubt), then we would likely pull the trigger.
    • The need by some Americans here and across the country to demonize only select individuals for rioting (ahem, minorities) speaks directly to the fact that we've really made little actual progress since witnessing unrest in our streets dating back to the civil rights era. Ask yourself truthfully, what has really changed when the first thing some white people can think of even today in 2017 when they see a black person "rioting" is, "why are these black people so angry?"? But then white people rioting over a sporting event or a pumpkin festival is viewed as harmless tomfoolery.  If you as not only an American but also a basic human being fail to see the difference in the dynamic at play here as it pertains to the response to these instances, you are part of the problem whether you realize it or not.
