well in today's NFL the #3 WR is a starter.the new WR will be top 3 on the depth chart with this group of WRs.



Well I really don't see the logic of spending a 1st round pick on a number #3 WR .

The only time Lafell is open is when he finds holes in zone defenses. He rarely gets open when he is covered man to man. And trust me i am not talking out my ass. I went back and watched most of the games. This is based off his targets and catches i have watched. Great number 3 option as a WR.

guys don't argue with koolkatluke he's obciously right we don't need a WR.

I mean Beason said that we need a WR and even mentioned the idea of taking one in the first round but hey what does Beason know?

Smith gets hurt? Who cares if we don't ave a competent WR who could play #1 anymore!

We can't draft a top 10 WR who'd come in and just instantly replace Smith so just don't ever draft a WR.

Did you not see how horrid the OL was last season? Even with Kalil early on it was bad.

You can never assume that it will improve by "default". Nothing ever does in the NFL. The OL was considered a prized strength of the Panthers before the start of the season last year and it turned out to be far from it.

The WR class this year is bottom heavy...good solid talent in the later rounds but not so much in the 1st. The same can't be said for OL which is fairly top heavy. Might as well take advantage of the oppurtunity to grab a great OG (yes, Warmack is considered to be a mid 1st round pick so he's not a reach) or another solid OL. DT and secondary would also be better than WR in the 1st.

Yes, LaFell sucks ass. But with this deep draft class, it should be fairly easy to replace him later in the draft. Or...go fishing in FA.


Yes I saw the o-line fall off. What was the biggest difference, from 2011 when they were rated very highly? Amini learning on the fly and Kalil being out, forcing Hangman to move to center which brought a poo player to starting at RG.Kalil's injury basically forced us to lose 2 starting positions on the line.

The draft does appear to be deep in receivers who could maybe start out as #2 or #3 options right away but are unlikely to ever become a # 1(we have one of these guys in Lafell). I'm not thinking in terms of getting a # 2 and leaving a # 1 receiver still a need to be addressed in the very near future(Steve will be the oldest player on the roster when we cut Ron Edwards). We are never going to have the cap room to sign a # 1 receiver in free agency by the time its needed. If things go well we will not be drafting this low ever again and the fact that we also need immediate help at the position it just makes more sense than anything else.

There are only 3 way's I don't condone going WR in the first
1.If Gettleman determines none of the W.R's in the draft are worth the 14th or be that # 1 one type receiver.
2. A major steal like Star falls to us(even then I'd question why did they fall that far)
3.We cut Gross and make LT an immediate need.

Let's see. 4 th year pro with 3 years in the same system with the same QB and is rated to have some of the best hands when targeted. Vs a rookie in a weak wr class. Yeah that is laughable.


Thats the funniest thing i have heard in a while, Lafell was a 4th round pick, maybe this years top receivers are not on the level of Jones or Green but they damn sure are on a level of Brandon Lafell. You really think Allen, Patterson, or Patton Rogers couldnt put up around 500 yards and 3 or 4 TDs next year? Cuz thats around the production Lafell has given us for 3 seasons. He is going into a contract year. How much you think he is worth paying for that production over just drafting a replacement?

Steve Smith was on the radio 2 weeks ago and said he didn't think we needed another Wr. He loves Lafell and praised his work ethic. So you think you know better then the panthers best wr.

So Arron Rogers was a rookie when he took over for Brett Farve? After being in the league for 3 years he was a rookie?

You people really want to attached your wagon, to this moron? Really???

why not if he is a starter? again look at how many times a team is in a 3 WR set.plus with the group of WRs on this team he will be top 3 on the depth chart.
