we could go down a very long list of "picked after the 3rd round and started as a rookie" but you don't have to convince anyone here, reality is all that matters and reality is that Lattimore probably won't be a Panther, although i would be shocked but pleasantly pleased if he were

Instead of taking shots in the dark or gambling at RB....we shoud gamble on late picks at positions of need or value positions.

Let's say you gambled on a DE and RB late and hit....the DE gamble likely has the better payoff

Drafting a RB who is perhaps on his last leg would be asinine, especially when we have holes to fill, and only possess five draft picks to do so.

Lattimore (even in the fifth and sixth round) is a LUXURY pick for us. I'm using the term loosely as well considering Marcus will be buried on some team's depth chart or won't be playing in the NFL five years from now.

lol it's a frikkin 4th or 5th rounder! it's all a gamble to that point and you take the best players available...which he most definitely would be.

true, we have been forced to start players drafted that late recently, but we absolutely shouldn't have been and we shouldn't continue that practice. fill holes in FA the way we apparently are instead of hoping that inexperienced and untested players can. then take the bpa in the draft.

Yep, you bet he is a 'luxury' pick. When your team has multiple holes and limited draft picks, a GM's margin for error significantly shrinks.

This thread is a great example of what's wrong with the huddle, the fact that this has made 50+ posts is astounding when you consider how irrelevant and nonsensical it truly is . This thread should have been gif bombed.

They did it with Norman last year so it's always in play as an option.

I would hope that the team believes there is a chance that a mid/round selection has a chance to start. Giving up on that possibility when you have the need is not the approach to take IMO., You never know what's going to happen.


Norman came in to a position to play based on how thin we were at CB and how highly reguarded he was after the senior bowl. In reality,norman didn't look as good as many carolina fans would leave you to believe. If he was really the future and such a great player, i don't think chico would have benched him to look at josh thomas and dockery.

Bomb for looking at sleepers??? u should bomb yourself for your narrow mined views on nfl policies. Cultivating and trading away picks at positions you may not need is the way its done. Why take some scrub who is going to be cut in the 5th round for someone who has legit first round talent who could be traded away for something later that could help the team? Cassel,kirk cussins,kolb,matt shaub, micheal turner all are examples of teams drafting players would are not a need but could turn a profit later. why is this such a bad idea?

If he's there in the 4th or 5th, I think it's a no brainer. We will not likely find more value then that in those rounds, and if we can cut ourselves free of Double Trouble's contracts, getting a younger/cheaper/potentially better back on a 4th round contract for several years, it will be much easier ot extend Cam and get more meaningful positions in today's NFL passing league.
