Example??

How about giving up 4.2 yards a carry and getting ran over by 2 undrafted RB.

Pass rush isn't a weakness bud,

Hardy 11 sacks

Johnson 12.5

Edwards 6

But quality depth is, and Edwards will be 32 in May.

On a team with this many needs you don't spend your first rounder on "quality depth".

Thanks as always Gang! Don't sleep on Richardson..dude can rush the passer.

@Icege - I appreciate that Dude.. The sad part is that the major media has the resources but refuse to make it happen. Don't worry, FBGP will be its own Network one day ;)

I hear folks say Richardson is a pass rusher, what I saw was a measley 4 and the kid getting bullied in the run game.Talk is cheap, give me pudding

The Panthers got beat by the worst team in the league last year because of our DTs.

Not entirely true Josh Norman was owned by Quinn

And the Dline got no pressure and couldn't stop Charles.

Exactly, it was a combination of things. However drafting Richardson does not improve our run stopping issues.

Nobody thought Watts would be as good as he is against the run. Not comparing just saying. Plus the kid had 75 tackles which is unheard of for a DT.

You do when you're looking to upgrade. Dwan is good, but he's not a stud player, and he's on the back end of his career. This is the perfect situation to bring in a hot prospect at DT. He can play behind Dwan and then in a year or two they swap and Dwan becomes the depth. Again, I'm not saying we will or should, I just don't get why people are against the idea of a DT in the 1st.

Personally, I'm hoping we can get good value at DB, as we've been hurting there for years. But that would likely require moving down, which isn't easy.
