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.

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

Even Otah was great when he actually played. The Panthers haven't missed on a pick since 2000, when Tony Softli took over college scouting. Don Gregory replaced him in 2006, and he's still here.

Assuming Gettleman listens to his scouts as well as Hurney did, we shouldn't have to worry about our first pick.

I think we have a chance to land a great player at a need position. ESPECIALLY, if two quarterbacks go top 10 as has been the talk this morning.

And also consider Gettleman has a scouting background and he can have his own opinion of players. Hurney more or less had to rely on reports.

Although it will be hard to beat or match Hurney's success in the first round.

It's pretty hard to miss on position players in the first 15 picks. At least based on rating ability (i.e. not counting injuries.

Does happen sometimes.

With all if the options we will have at 14, this draft is pretty hard to fug up.
