Panthers don't want a WR...so they have private workouts with more WR's than any other position?


Got it.

I actually asked him specifically about that and his response was that they would take a receiver "at some point"...doesn't seem to think it will be in the first.

How many of the receivers they worked out are guys that you would expect to still be around "at some point"?

Working out a number of receivers means we are interested in picking one but it means it could be later in the draft and might mean we had to visit with many of them given there are no real standouts or top 10 receivers in this draft.

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.



I wasn't really defending him because I too think that he's awful. I'm just saying it's a bit ridiculous to expect anyone to know exactly what's going to happen in the draft. It's not like we all don't already know the positions the team has been targeting anyways.

I don't expect him to know exactly who we're going to draft.

I'd just like for him to know more about the team than he actually demonstrates knowing in this chat.

If he said the Panthers were looking to take Tavon, all if you would be slobbering over how great Person was.

Typical for fans...live the guy that agrees with you and hate the guy that does not.

To be fair Hatter, he doesn't have to agree with me. It'd be nice if he agreed with himself, though. Some of his inconsistencies are kinda head scratching.

I wish Gettleman would just come out and tell us who we are drafting.

His communication thus far is terrible.
