You can grab a servicable guard in the 4th round.

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

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.

Is Guard going to be the new RB/LB for the Panthers? I fail to see why we have to use a 1st to fix the guard problem. 1st round picks should go to premium positions most of the time.

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.


your're trying to hard and making general assumptions.. piss off

I just think 14 is a reach with this WR class. The mediocre guys look better because the top end talent isn't there. Shore up the interior with this draft class then look to the outside in 2014.

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!"

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.

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....
