Can we nail our first round pick for the third straight season?

24 posts in this topic

Even though we have a different GM, are you guys confident we will bring in another franchise superstar like Cam/Luke with our first pick?

Cam and Luke are about the best two cornerstones to build your franchise around and we should feel absolutely blessed to have these two for the next 5-10 seasons. That being said, could we find another stud at receiver/defensive back/offensive linemen at 14 or are we due for a stinker?

You guys can complain about the direction of this franchise all you want, but with Newton, Kuechly, and the possibility of another young superstar, I genuinely look forward to the next decade of Panther football.

I think a key factor is the interview process, and finding guys we know want to be here for the long haul no matter what. Gotta bring in superstars that wont part ways when it comes time for a new contract. We've always been fairly good at this minus Peppers...

Gettleman has the same scouting staff Hurney did, and Hurney always did well in the first. So yes.

Other then Otah, Carolina has nailed the first round for the last decade or so.

I have a gut feeling - that's all it is, probably just my desires influencing my gut - that Star will not be deemed completely 100% free of all possibly health problems for the rest of his life, but he will be cleared for football and his heart guesstimated to not be a significant risk. This will cause him to fall to us (few, if any, teams in the entire NFL need a DT as bad as we do so others decide not to bother with the chance and pick from a different need of equal or close value to DT for them), we take him, he turns out to be everything he's hyped to be, and we ace 1st round pick #3 in a row.

I hope so. But I think we are going to go DT/WR in the first, which is what I want anyway. But DT/WR have a bigger potential to bust.... eventually we have to start taking chances though.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
