Yeah I know what you guys are saying, it just makes so much sense though. The panthers have spent more money on their backs than just about anyone in history, yet they can't even hit 4 yards a carry. I also remember the first tampa game, when imo the battle was lost because they couldn't contain the inside pass rush. Argh, I'm mindfuged.


Simple solution. Get rid of all the ridiculous money being paid to backs and start giving them to positions with value.

If Warmack is available he will be very seriously considered by our front office and coaching staff and would be a long term solution at the position. The interior of our line would hopefully be dominant for years with Silatolu, Kalil, and Warmack. I'd be on board with the pick.

It's crazy though because I've seen him mocked in the top 10 and even top 5 on some sites.

That's a ludicrously expensive interior group. Two first round picks, a second round pick, and at least two big contracts?

With changes in defensive schemes, guards are worth increasingly more. Over the past few seasons we've seen more athletic interior lineman, in addition to more defensive ends moving inside on certain downs. Lawrence Taylor began the trend of pressure coming from the outside, particularly the blindside. But as blindside protection received increasingly more and more focus, defenses have started to exploit other parts of the line.

Overall, interior blockers are still less valuable than tackles. That being said, their value is increasing, and its worth the pick if the guard is a player of Warmack's caliber.

I've made this argument last year. That the OG position no matter who it is shouldn't be a top 10 to 15 pick. The top 10 guards have more latter round picks then 1st 2 round picks. Nicks and Evans are 2 of the best at their position and were 4th and 5th round picks. My question is when was, the last time a guard was taken in the top 15?
