Does everyone think Gettleman is smoke screening by saying BPA

People who make mock drafts don't tend to research the draft tendencies of each team. Pay no mind.

IMO, QB and RB are the only two positions we would pass on this year. So we very well could take BPA in the first two rounds. Regardless of position. And as long as the kid can make plays, I will be a happy camper.

This is not a top heavy class by any stretch, but there is plenty of talent. Hit with both our first two picks and it makes us a little better. If both those guys can make plays from the get go? We will definately be a better team.

Also, if we get a RG and a capable TE in FA, which is feasible, that would take some pressure off the draft, allowing a BPA scenario.

Ah hell, you can never have enough talent. Just draft talented players and we are a go.

It's not necessarily easy. Let's say Sheldon Richardson, Keenan Allen and Ezekiel Ansah, Kenny Vacarro and Chance Warmack are still on the board. Who do we pick?

If Gettleman picked Richardson in this situation I would start a Bring Back the Hurnz campaign.

Gettleman saying we're going to go BPA is a complete smokescreen.

In reality, we're actually going to take the WPA (worst player available)

Nobody is gonna see that coming.

You just unintentionally explained what BPA means to a lot of our resident geniuses here at the huddle.

Could be an invitation to teams who want to trade up. It's like saying: watch out, despite we have no need at that position, we might take your guy.

Mocks will always project for a teams needs.

Doesn't dictate what we'll do.

Keep in mind, the Panthers board will look different than most mock drafts.

Some players will remain in similar slots, while others will be blotted differently based on how they fit with the Panthers, and our needs.

Years of poor Hurney drafting have led people to believe that BPA isn't directly influenced by your need. It is. Competent teams don't just up and take players at positions of true strength when they have holes as large as the ones we have in so many places. It just doesn't happen.

Who's to say we wouldn't trade down if Geno or Matt are still on the board? This would be a good leverage tool for a QB needy team.
