Why Passing on a WR in the first might not be a option

Recommended Posts

Why in the world would I take a guard in the first when I can grab a guard of about equal talent in the 5th?

What a mighty fine way to waste my draft pick.

Also a good thing you added the year at the end of your post or else I would have had to double check the date

"We really need a LB this year, wait until 2005!"

"wait until 2006!"

"wait until 2007, we need a power back this year!"

"wait until 2008!"

..FIVE YEARS PASS..

"wait until 2014!"

Maybe we should draft full back at 2nd while we at it? Do you know that every 1st round guard from last year totally failed? Decastro who was projected to be the next HOF flopprd for Steelers. And that fireman Guard Eagles got was a complete bust last year. You can get a good Guards in later rounds.

Decastro broke his leg and that guard for the eagles was some 28 year old fireman turned OL. Not the same as Cooper or Warmack.

Lol "project" as if well ran teams actually evaluate players based on what they'll be able to do their first year rather than over the course of their career

Teams actually do both crazy I know.

I have a feeling that "J. Evans" or some later round draft stud is in our future, so instead we pick WR. Too many wide receivers at 14 to pass up.

i dont care what you feel

Can't pass the ball if you can't protect the QB. Give me a plug and play guard or tackle at 14 instead of a project WR like Patterson. We are gonna be mediocre this year anyway. Go WR in 2014.

This.

I'd love to have a great WR prospect come to the panthers, but the fact of the matter is we have bigger, more important holes to fill for now. To be a successful franchise, you need to:

1. Get a QB

2. Give him protection

3. Give him weapons

Even though Steve is old, at least we have an aging elite receiver. That added with Olsen and Lafell makes our receiving corp serviceable while we build a good o-line.

I would think with having a QB who could be the GOAT, people would want to make sure he doesn't get injured ever....

This fanbase I swear.

"LET'S KEEP PASSING ON WR TALENT LET'S FIND THAT DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH I MEAN IT WORKED WITH ARMANTI."

I mean seriously this Fanbase gets upset when Hurney tried to do that but then still wants Gettlemen to do it and this is why our roster is so weak holy poo.

Funny how you want to do that with the DT position. Which is just as important.

You realize Gross will be 35 next year... We will need to draft 5:11:35 PM next year... After that year, Bell will be free agent... Our line will never be shore up. Its a myth.

Exactly. The Saints shitty ass defensive line busted right up the middle and injured cam in that last game. But hey if Patterson was there running a slant Cam would have been fine....LMAO. If I'm GM, I'm using this draft to protect Cam and Luke.

Oh here goes growl ducking and dodging somebody else's point. By mention something from another thread. Since you missed the point let me repeat it. Teams draft on both what a player can be day one and his potential.

I get the same vibe from this that I get from the "Hey you remember 2005 when Goings went down. We really needed 4th running back then." Not the same thing but I get that vibe. About the only way you get elite talent at wide reciever is to draft in the first or get lucky. To get elite gaurds 2nd -4th round.

The problem some people are missing here is there is not a for sure elite WR in this draft.

Wide receiver is one of the deepest positions in the draft this year.

Cordarrelle Patterson

Keenan Allen

Tavon Austin

Quinton Patton

Justin Hunter

Deandre Hopkins

Robert Woods

Terrance Williams

Cobi Hamilton

Da'Rick Rogers

Markus Wheaton

Aaron Dobson

Marquis Goodwin

Ryan Swope

You really think there's gonna be a run on all of those before we pick in the 2nd?

Just because it is 'deep', does it mean it is good.

This draft class is full of #2-3 WR. Only a handful are considered to be #1 and even then they aren't a solid option.
