Only problem with drafting a young LT is playing him beside Silatolu who still has a long way to go.


A long ways to go up until last year. This year Silatolu could play at an All-Pro level you never know. Byron Bell got a lot better his 2nd year

We cannot assume we will re-sign our FAs so having said that we have real holes to fill.

fs, UT,cb, OG are the 4 that come to mind. I figure we will get two starters in the draft and we must get a FS and OG that are not on the team.


UT?? What?
Yes, if we can't resign Dwan. No, if we can.
NT > UT

Very true. Silatolu held his own for a rookie from a tiny school. He made some all rookie teams. Mentally though having a seasoned vet next to him was a help. I guess with Kalil back he'd still have that presence to lean on.

Down at the One figures it to be cornerback and defensive tackle.

I think we definitely need to shore up our secondary going in to 2013.

I think thy liked Godfrey at FS with Campbell at SS so while we will looking for guys to compete we might not be looking for upgrades in free agency.
As for the guard and tackle position, I suspect we will bring in some guys but there are a bunch of guys who will be obtainble for not that much. Unless Warmack drops, I doubt we go guard early in the draft. I would suspect we go either NT or LT in the draft at 14. Maybe Patterson if he is there but that is the only non-linemen I think they consider unless there is a run at some position or the other. The linemen are the class of this draft early and will likely be the BPAs at 14.

IMO, we have to build around Cam Newton. If there's an elite WR prospect there at #14, take him. Steve Smith isn't going to last forever and the rest of our WR corps is nothing special. I think LaFell is a solid WR, but he's no #1, that's for sure. Beyond LaFell, we have nothing but a bunch of hopes and dreams, nothing proven. If there isn't an elite WR prospect available, I'd be looking at OL next. 14 is pretty high for an OG, but if the staff feels that Warmack is worth the pick and he's there, then go for it. OT isn't out either. Gross isn't getting any younger and Bell could be upgraded. Our OL is simply not very good. If Cam wasn't a mobile QB, they'd be getting exposed badly. He makes them look better than they are. Just look at Double Trouble's numbers. We know what those RBs can do, but they couldn't do poo behind our OL.

If none of the above fit the bill at #14, I'd be trying to trade down as the first option unless something somewhat unforeseen were to happen like Star Lotulelei slipping to #14. DT and DB would be the only defensive positions I'd want to take at #14.
