Draft chat with Joe Person...

Ok that's a wrap. Here's what I got from the chat:

1) The Panthers view the needs as DT, CB, S, and OT. Not so much wide receiver.

2) The Panthers wouldn't mind adding more picks but won't drop back too far in order to do it.

3) Person seems to think that the defensive backfield is definitely going to be augmented through the draft in some way.

4) Person seems to like Richardson a lot but doesn't seem sure if the Panthers are.

5) Austin would be tempting to grab if he's there but doesn't think the Panthers will do it.

6) Rivera absolutely needs a winning record to remain in Carolina.

7) Panthers will only address OL if the right guy is there, if they do he thinks Bell could move inside to guard.

8) He definitely feels that there are better safety prospects than Vaccaro, and doesn't think he'll be the pick.

9) He thinks there is a strong chance that Star could fall and that the panthers would take him if he was there.

10) Person has no clue what the Panthers want and I just wasted an hour of my life.

He has no sources.

James Dator has more insight to the Panthers than our beat writers right now.

I miss DGantt and Steve Reed.

In fairness to him, NO ONE knows who the Panthers are going to take or want. Hell, at where we're picking it's hard to tell who is even going to be on the board. Him saying that we wouldn't take Tavon Austin is completely contradictory to what David Gettleman has been preaching though.

lol Person knows absolutely nothing.

I'd bet almost anything that the "source close to the team" Yas and that walterfootball dork is Person as well.

So every year we're forced to suffer through a cycle of some hack job who doesn't qualify as anything more than a casual fan spouts off opinions to people who don't know well enough to know he's no more credible that trucatzfan.

Person is annoyed that he covers the Panthers.

Person covers the Panthers?

Abridged. LOL.

Get your priorities straight, man. That hour could have gone to waste in the Huddle.

If this is true, I hope Richardson is off the board before we pick. DO NOT WANT.

He's a sportswriter. His whole job is to know stuff. That's what he's paid to do.

Even if he can't get hold of the Panthers draft board, he should at least have researched the team enough to be able to make good, solid educated guesses.

I see no indication he's put in that much effort.

Said he thinks Hopkins and Allen will be there in the second. Ummmm...maybe Allen but no way Hopkins drops. St Louis reportedly is in love with him.

Isn't he the poo flinger?
