Mr. Scot

How would you feel if...

...given what's already been done in free agency, the draft was heavy on players in the trenches (OL/DL)?

I wouldn't mind. A starter on both the offensive and defensive lines via the draft would bode well for this teams success this season. That said, I think we could plug in a FA at one of those spots and address WR or S in the first.

I'd be fine with it. Several of the great teams are built that way and I'd have no problem with it

I'd be fine with that since DT and OL are the top 2 holes we have now.

I'm sure most people here would kill themselves or call out for Gettleman's head, but the fact of the matter is this: games are won and lost in the trenches. I'm all for a WR/S/CB but I'm also for giving Cam the best chance at not running for his life. And conversely, I'm all for a Dline that makes other QBs run for theirs! We haven't missed in the first round of a draft in years, so whichever way we go, I'll support it.

Considering who we are bringing in for visits I'm skeptical were going in that direction but we'll see

Valid. I'm just being hypothetical.

DL, OL, WR, S, CB, would be my need list in order of priority. I would be dandy if we went for big guys in the draft

Well if our OL can give Cam time in the pocket the sky is the limit. If only we had more than 5 picks..

I would love it but as I've seen posted several times on here I feel weird about more youth on the line. I'd bet Gettlemen brings in a few solid vets for the oline. Either now or prior to the start of the season.

Warmack and Kwan Short would be great. I'd even add a mauling tackle in the 4th or 5th to push Bell.

    • I was a Marine Brat at Camp Lejeune NC and graduated from CLHS in 1978 and on 28 June 1978 I joined the Navy.  I retired On June 30th 2003 after 25 yrs of Naval Service and have been serving overseas to support our troops ever since. I was in Tikrit when they captured Saddam.  Soldiers from our base were the ones who actually found him.  I have been in places in Iraq called Mosul, Al Asad, and Al Kut,  I have been in Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.  The living hell hole called FOB Shank were incoming was a daily encounter. You see young soldiers who don't even shave yet.  Some look like they lied to get in.  Men and women from every walk of life.  Putting that uniform on.  So needless to say, I am very attached and proud of every one of them.  Whether they know me or not.  Tears fill my eyes every time we lose one. (Just lost one last week). This video, I saw when it was originally aired, still make me water up.   I challenge anybody to show me a more military dedicated team, in ANY LEAGUE, ANY SPORT, that supports the troops like the Carolina Panthers.  I'll give my hated Yankees a close 2nd. ($10,00 ticket with a military ID) **at old Yankee Stadium. Carolina is a class act, plain and simple. Thanks for posting this again,
