Marty Hurney Era- 2002-2012 (10 years), Round 1 - 3 in review.

2 WRs - (plus a QB utility player) 2nd, 3rd round
3 DEs - 1st , 2nd, 3rd

6 LBs - 1st, 1st, 1st, 3rd, 3rd, 3rd round
4 RBs - 1st, 1st, 2nd, 2nd round

10 years from now, that should be flipped IMO.

whether people in here think there's someone worth the pick or not, you should be expecting a WR to be picked up in the first couple rounds.

Gettleman is a "pick players that best fit your established system" drafter (the Steeler method) as opposed to a "take the best player and adapt around him" (the Patriot method) kind of guy.

Thus, the operative question becomes who helps most in the offensive and defensive systems we run.

Honestly I'd like to see Oline 1st, Oline 2nd, WR or DT 4th.

I wouldn't mind a G in the 3rd. I think the 2nd will be a prime spot for a WR in this draft class.

You have to wonder how much similarity there is between his system and Rivera's. It always seems like a weird marriage to me when you have a guy picking the players than may not have much in common with the guy using the players.

I'd like to see us go after the best available players for the O-line and secondary in the first few rounds.

are you expecting that we'll be trading for a 3rd?

2 DEs - 1st and 2nd (neither are with the Panthers)

6 LBs - 1st, 1st, 1st, 3rd, 3rd, 3rd round
4 RBs - 1st, 1st, 2nd, 2nd round

I don't have time to count right now but I think that this means that we spent 10 total picks on LB's and RB's in the last ten years out of a total of 25 or so 1st, 2nd, and 3rd round picks.

bah, I forgot we didn't have one. I still like WR in the 2nd.....either line in the first.
