I agree somewhat, and I know a guard isn't sexy...but part of my feelings from this just come from the talent at WR that should still be there in the 2nd.

A guy like Patterson in the 1st would be great...but I'd be happier with Warmack in the 1st and Patton in the 2nd for instance.

At least that's how I feel right now.

i'd be fine with a situation like that, but i REALLY don't like the idea of taking a guard in the first. i don't care how studly they are. i'd rather draft impact players, which i don't consider interior OL to be, esp. guard. we can fill those holes more quickly and with less transition time by picking up vets in FA.

mr scott you make alot of questionable threads. :cool:


Better than most threads with all of the (wrong) answers XD

I entertain myself by trying to see how well I "know" the team by means of predicting free agents and draft picks vs. what my own personal choices would be. I can't say that I don't get excited when I get it right, but I think that comes from how often I get it wrong >.>

I wouldn't say I ever hated the draft, just sometimes didn't like what the Panthers did.

Like last year, I was happy to have Kuech. Mostly because it wasn't Quinton Coples who i was sure would be a bust

The best place about draft day is watching this place have complete meltdowns over poo that we know nothing about. I always welcome the new players with open arms and find something to get excited about over them so I always laugh while people freak out and claim our team sucks because of some 7th round pick.

Normally I'd agree with you. But with Newton's running ability, and the stable of backs we have, a strong interior line is more important for us than most offenses. I wouldn't mind Warmack in the first, and Hopkins or a DT in the second. I feel like with Hardy, and CJ a top DT isn't as important, and we can get by with FAs.

I'm in a better place with this year's draft class. There's only one player who's a common pick for us I'd hate if we drafted - Sharrif Floyd. All the other popular picks I'd be at least ok with: Warmack, Vaccaro, Patterson, one of the top CBs, Richardson, j. Williams. The picks I would absolutely love are (the not likely ones) Star, Joeckel and (more likely) Hankins.

Mayock is talking about the possibility of Warmack going number one.

(I have a hard time buying that)

Cooper as well if I'm not mistaken. Pretty sure he said only 4 players should be considered, named the top 2 guards and 2 LT I think.

Agreed. As it stands right now, without FA, those are my thoughts. Obviously it changes if we pick up a guard in FA and vice versa for whatever position is at hand.

Our OL last year could've used its share of impact guys...bringing a guy like Warmack gives us a potentially nasty line. As it stands now, without FA pickups, bringing in a WR still leaves Cam scrambling behind our roller skating OL from last year. And obviously injuries played a role, etc., but protecting Cam is goal numero uno IMO ahead of supplying him with weapons.

I really like watching the clips of the prospects on sites like draftbreakdown.com. Does anyone know of any better sites for prospect watching? But I hate getting enamored with players that just do not fit the positions we are drafting. This year, I have fallen for "The General" ; wide receiver Patton. He just makes plays. 14 is too high for him and even if he is there in the second, I am just not sure that is the pick we need. I hope he ends up being a Panther but I just don't see it happening.

I have always loved the NFL Draft. I am usually optimistic and try and get behind whoever we draft. The only time I can remember not being happy with who we drafted is the Clausen/Armanti draft (2010?). I was not a fan of that draft at all and was so angry when we traded away future picks to draft AE. This year is especially intriguing because there are so many players that I like and that I think would be a good fit for this team that it will be fun to see who we pick. Unlike last year I feel like there aren't many players that are definitely going in the top 10. Last year the top 10 was practically set in stone before the draft even started and I feel like it's going to be a bit more wide open this year.

I'm really hoping for the negative feelings to ease with Gettleman in charge rather than Hurney.

i'm just happy to not have this feeling of dread over me wondering what dumb draft day trade thing hurney was going to try and pull.

i swear i hated that. the guy was good at picking in the first round. not sure why he wanted so desperately to trade that away. he was just never as good a poker gambler as he thought he was. he considered himself a surfer bob protege, but it seemed like all he did was absorb the trade up for ryan leaf germ instead of the good stuff.

lol. coples was so overrated it's not even funny.

he is what we thought he was.

kuechly >>>> coples. not even close.

the best thing about not drafting him is i don't have to look at that incredibly ugly and painful looking brand on his arm.
