I think the BPA's will be Cooper, Austin or Allen. IMO there's like a 50% chance Cooper will be there -- but even if he is, you don't know if Gettleman wants to draft a guard that high. The Giants haven't drafted an O-lineman high in a long time. I think Allen's the best pure WR prospect in the draft. He has good size, good speed and perhaps the best ball skills in the draft. The injury is all that worries me. We all know how much it sucks for your 1st round pick to get hurt. Austin is not your average receiver, but he's a dynamic weapon with game-breaking ability. Right now, I might favour Allen just because he has the potential to replace Smitty as a quintessential no.1.

Cooper over Warmack?

Bare with me. What if we traded down twice and out of the first? Maybe locking up 6? or so 2nd and 3rd round picks for the next two yrs. Would do that.

Back to OP

with the 14th pick of this yrs draft i would take Jarvis Jones/S. Richardson/Xavier Rhodes

why? have a feeling those guys are the ones sitting there still and we will have a nice opportunity to get OLB replacement and groom him, shore up the middle line beside Dwan and add a big, strong, press man cb.

Didn't Jarvis Jones bomb his pro day?

My prime target is Star, but I know it's not a likelihood. Of the more likely players available at our pick I honestly am at a loss. Hankins would still be my preferred pick. If not Hankins there really aren't that many impact players around our spot in my opinion. None of the WRs are even close, OG just isn't a value position (but if I had to choose Warmack would probably be my #2 at our pick), I really don't see us spending a high pick on a CB this year, none of the S are 1st round quality players. My second choice behind Hankins would have to be trying like hell for a trade down to pick up an extra 2nd to pick from the deep 2nd round value pool. Get a guy like Hunter or Hopkins (my money is on them being the two best WRs in this class) at the end of the 1st and get an extra 2nd to spend on a combo from S/DT/OL in the 2nd.

Curious. Would you take Warmack if Tavon Austin were still available?

star lotulelei. and i would be willing to move up to get him.
[/quote]moving up to take anyone in the first round would be one of the few things that would get me upset in this draft...esp. since we have so few picks this year.

no more mortgaging the future.

At 14... Draft either Star or Tavon Austin

Ideally... Trade back anywhere past 20 to pick up an extra 3rd rounder and select DeAndre Hopkins

Star, Austin, or Cyprien in no particular order.

I'd be happy with Keenan Allen if he has a good workout and runs well.

A small trade down and Kawann Short !
Short is a first rounder.

My ideal draft looks like this:

If Tavon Austin is there @ 14, try to work a trade with the Rams or Vikings (both with multiple first rounders) for an add'l 2nd round pick and 4th rounder. For example, trade with the Rams for their #22 and their 2nd rounder and perhaps 4th rounder for #14. Then, with the traded picks, take Jonathan Cyrien (SS) or Keenan Allen (WR if he works out well) with 1st rounder; Kawan Short (UT) @ #44; and Stedman Bailey (WR) or BPA @ DB, DL or OL with Rams second rounder. With the two (2) fourth rounders, take BPA of whatever we missed with the prior picks.

If no viable trade can be worked out, then I'm ok with taking Austin or BPA..

Trade down for a second rounder and draft Jesse Williams.
He is a bit raw, but stopping the run on defense starts at the NT position.

In the second round, take a Justin Hunter or DeAndre Hopkins and grab a Larry Warford or Barrett Jones.

Later, find a developmental 3 technique to rotate with Dwan at under tackle. Bennie Logan, Josh Boyd, etc.

Based on players that should be there at 14, no doubt TAVON AUSTIN and SHELDON RICHARDSON.

Both are beasts. Tavon is dynamic and adding him to the offense with Cam would be even more scarier. Put him in the backfield, in the slot, run reverses, whatever you wanna do with him.

Sheldon is a tremendous interior pass rusher but is also very good at the point of attack. Sure, he's an UT but he's going to force double team all day long leaving CJ/Hardy to have one on one matchups, and Kuechly running freely.

What do Steve Smith, Armanti Edwards, Joe Adams, Kealoha Pilares, James Shaw, and Ted Ginn all have in common?







If you said they were Panther receivers under 5'11" you would be correct!!!!!

If we draft a receiver, I hope he is at least 6'

Patterson?

I get the meaning, but DeSean Jackson is only 5'10 and we do have LaFell.

Well, name me a receiver in Panthers history that is considered good who's over 5'11, other than Moose.

Height matters huh?

No to Patterson. I just don't see him being able to give something in right away. I have Austin, Keenan, Hunter, and Woods ahead of Pat
