I'm generally a fan of trade downs, especially if you're not enamored with the choices at your spot.

Iffy on whether that happens this year though, or if it [i]should[/i]. Got a feeling there will be some pretty good players available at pick 14, players we can use.

If you do wanna trade down of course, ya gotta have somebody wanting to trade [i]up[/i]. Sometimes that's the big catch.

agreed and i fully understand.

I feel depth is more important atm. With the possibility of some legit playmakers still there at 14, someone might bite.

everything happens so fast in round one and who knows until then. im along for the ride and will prob change my mind a couple more times but as of now i see depth as a bigger need and I would like to see Gmaniac with a couple more picks in his pocket. :bbq:

Used to always wish we were one of those teams that stockpiled draft picks. I envy those teams.

Marty Hurney certainly loved to trade, but it was generally a straight swap of one kind or another. He didn't tend to go for extras.

Gettleman? Guess we'll see in three weeks.

Could you be happy if we wound up with Bailey after Austin going ahead of our pick, or would you always put him in the "settled for the next best thing" category in your mind?

Or for that matter, how would you react if the Panthers did get a shot at Austin but passed on him for someone else and chose Bailey in a later round?

I actually would like the Panthers to trade down to a late 1st round pick and a get a 3rd round pick. Austin's great and all but in the end he is just one player and the team needs more picks. Then I would want them to pick up Bailey.

Now if they dont trade down and have the option to take Austin I would be pissed but used to it as the Panthers never draft a WVU that I like.

Bailey to me will be a good Slot WR and is going to be a player. Alot of teams will be kicking themselves for passing on him the years to come.

One other player from WVU I would like to see the Panthers take is Josh Jenkins OG. Should go in round 5 or 6. Great size only issue is knees.

Okay, so now I gotta wonder what it is you dislike about Austin :unsure:

I know he's undersized, but others his size have been successful and he's looked durable so far. What's got you turned off on him as a Panther?

you guys should know more than me, but does Geno always have enough time to bake a cake? with little big man and stedy running wild how could you not look good on that team. I will say he does have finesse.

Size mainly he weights 174 at the end of the season. He should have gained some weight before the combine. To me he needs to add atleast 20 pounds on or he wont last long in the NFL. So would have liked to seen that. Also 14 imo is too high for the risk of him getting injured. If he didnt rise so quickly in the draft would have loved to seen the Panthers pick him up in the mid 20's.

Dont get me wrong think he will be a great player if he gets his weight up. If not he will be out of the league in 2 years. Rather the Panthers get a solid CB or DT at 14 that you know will be there for 4-5 years.

WVU offesive line is very underrated. But when they get beat or dont give him time Geno looks pedestrian.


Look at any Syracuse game and the Texas tech game for a good read on Geno.

He had more time early in the season than he did in later games :unsure:

As far as mobility/athleticism, Smith's not really an RG3 type. He [i]can[/i] run some, but if I were a DC I wouldn't be sweating much about it.

From what I've seen though, he is somewhat "pocket mobile". Pocket awareness might need some work though, but that's why you have coaches. They coach him up right, I think he'll do pretty well.

(obviously it won't be with us, but I like to think he'll be successful whatever team he goes to)

Said a while back I thought 14 was too high for him, but as time has gone on I've warmed more to the idea. Guess we'll see in a few weeks.

In the end, if it's not us, please Lord don't let him wind up in the division lighting it up for someone else :(

(I think I'd cry)

That is one thing that worries me the 13th pick could be taking Austin. They could invision him being their "smitty".


But dont get me wrong if we take Austin at 14 I will be thrilled. He will become my favorite Panther.
