How Likely is it the Panthers Trade Down in the Draft?

28 posts in this topic

This is a great draft to grab a quality G, S or DT in rounds one and two. I think they stay put.

Agreed. As much as I want a WR, those positions have some very nice prospects in the first/second. It all depends on who falls, who is in realistically FA and the combine/interviews though. I'd like to see Oline and S given the right players fall. If not, put in a DT somewhere. Really hurts not to have a third to get what we leave out. This team is going to take time for Dave to fix (meaning not just one draft). Once our cap evens out of these bad contracts we can add quality playmakers but right now, we still need core necessities. Dave will pick BPA most likley anyways of any of those positions (wr, dt, db, ol).

Gettleman came from a team that BPA'd JPP at 15, even when they had Osi, Kiwinuka and Tuck. Unless he gets a great deal, he'll just stay put and pull the trigger imo.

14 for an early 20's and a third if you can find a dance partner, otherwise just stay put.

What no one is talking about is exactly who is going to trade up to get that instant starter at 14. This isn't like last year where you had a number of talented quarterbacks or a Julio Jones who Atlanta is willing to trade up 21 spots to get. Unless a D linemen who is projected as a top 10 falls to us, no one is going to give us any thing for that pick. And if a top 10 D linemen falls to us at 14, I suspect we will be the one pulling the trigger and keeping them ourselves.

how likely is it? This should pretty much answer that. Carolina really has very few trades. Dont expect much.

And there are a lot of DEs in this draft.

Just off the top of my head, Seattle and Star/Dion Jordan/etc. They have enough darn draft picks to draft into the top-10 but I can totally see them moving up for one of the Carrell-types in the draft.

It would be nice to have some options if we wanted to trade down, still I doubt we could get much to make it worth our while. After all a team who is looking to move up would be just as interested in the 15th place versus the 14th. If we ask too much, they just move on to the next guy. Sooner or later someone takes the offer as they move closer to their natural position.

I think the consensus among most teams is that you'll get the same quality player between 10 and 30 this

year. That said, there's no reason for a team to trade up to 14 unless there is one player that they really

want.....don't see anyone worth giving up that 2nd.

we can always hope though.

About as likely as getting struck by lightening while being eaten by a great white shark while winning the lottery. Not very.
