You would be mad if we drafted ____ in the 1st?

lmao @ erkle, margus hunt as a darkhorse because of gettlemans success with JPP....i honestly believe it would be a complete reach for him at #14, but if the best olinemen are gone, i like hunt better than any of the other de or dt prospects potential wise, and where else are you going to find a player with those kind of attributes?...there arent any!! JPP was considered a reach where the giants took him by most. just see having an absolute giant freak reserving as a dt, de, and athletic and big enough to hang with any te....and can potentially replace hardy if he walks....AND would be an instant threat against any kicking situation the second he steps on an nfl field....how is that a bad middle of the 1st round pick? we are dreadful, and gettleman wants big guys...dont get no bigger than hunt, or much more athletic for that matter!! would just rather have him on our team than having cam face him down the road. seriously dont think we'll get him, but i would be over the moon if we nabbed him, 1st round or 2nd. white boy has all the potential in the world, if he is a bust in the nfl, his position coach should be fired and banned fromt he nfl for life!! like his potential to add weight and play dt late into his career as well.

Rep for not getting all butt hurt and forming a cohesive argument for your opinion, but I just don't agree. I think he might pan out in the right system, but he is a huge project at the moment. He just didn't look like a football player from what I've seen of his videos. Looked like an athlete in football pads. Those don't usually work out. I'd be wearing a stink face if we took him in the 2nd, much less the 1st. One of those 3-4 teams at the bottom of the 1st could possibly get good value out of him, but all I see in him in a 4-3 at the moment is Cam Jordan (Saints).

completely see where you are coming from, and agree to a large extent....i certainly let the combine stats sway my opinion based on the footage i could find on him (i was on the poe bandwagon for a minute last year)...hunt is extremely raw. i just hope like hell we get a top offensive line talent....i suppose my want for hunt is a "might as well swing for the fences on this years biggest freak" mentality, if the best oline talent is gone at #14. i would be shocked if we dont get a lineman, but margus hunt would probably intrigue me more than any other player we could select at that point....but like i said, im on board with whoever we get. would be awesome if we got hunt and began to incorporate some hybrid 3-4 stuff with him here....we got a lot of work to do on defense, could see us making a gradual transition as we continue to add pieces over the next couple of seasons. anyways, i respect and agree with what ya say....i would be completely shocked if we chose hunt, just wouldnt be as pissed if i heard his name on day one of the draft as our pick as most panther fans would be :)

thanks for the rep bro, i definately think that erkle givin me a "wtf" look is on the mild end of what i thought would be said (and probably will be as more people read my lunacy and blast me) on the huddle after mentioning margus hunt and carolina's 14th pick in the draft in the same sentence....thanks for going easy on me :P

Hate you durn madden players wantin them sexy picks! Can't stand that high falutin offense! Draft warmack!!!

Panther fans are literally the only fanbase in the world that could go this long with one viable receiving option and still be resistant to taking another

another lasting gift from Fox

Is it just me, or do these two posts contradict themselves....

Cordarelle Patterson or D.J Fluker. Both are bust in my eyes. Vaccaro, Star, Sheldon, Keenan, Ertz, Lane, Warmack, or even Elam at that but I would like us to trade with Dallas to get picks cuz they want Vaccaro then/or trade with Texans cuz they want Keenan Allen. I want stock of talent

I dont know bc I like to many prospects at 14.

If I really have to think about it, I'll have to say:

-Lane Johnson; yea I know, but Id hate to take an OT when we have so many needs elsewhere unless we were to part way with Gross

-Kawaan Short

-Sylvester Williams

You seriously have Lane Johnson on your "do not want" list? A talent like that guy is something you don't pass up in the middle of the first round.

Endless choices aren't there.

Any player not named

Joeckel, Johnson, Ficsher

Warmack, Cooper

Star, Floyd

How's that

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
