This tells me a whole lot about what Gettleman thinks about our current DTs. Probably why he almost let Dwan walk.

Cam has a revolving door at RG.

Byron Bell has not shown that he's consistent.

Tampa bay can easily shut out all of our WR's.

The defensive backfield is filled with scrubs.

This was a bad pick.

I like the pick. I trust Gettleman. I thought we were going with Warmack or the OTfrom ARK Pine Bluff, but Our front 7 is officially beastly.

This has got to mean no more Fua...right? Can't take 5 DTs into the season

not even the BDTA

after all the praise yesterday in the pressy about the rotation we had at DT near the end of the year, how that became one of our stengths

meanwhile our secondary is Godfrey, Naka, Florence, Munny, Norman, etc right now

And with one pick you clowns went from swinging on gettlemens nuts to wanting to cut them off.

We turned our biggest weakness into a strength.

Do you people really think we would fill all these holes in 1 draft???

What scares me most is that we haven't responded to the developing events to the draft. We decided what we wanted and completely ignored the reality changing around us. Short was clearly the choice before the draft even started, and nothing changed that. That's worrisome with the level of great talent at immediate news. What's more scary is Gettleman's confidence in our corners. The giddy with which he spoke about aging, average Drayton Florence now seems a lit scarier in hindsight.. You can throw out tired cliches about not needing talented players in your secondary because of your dline, but unfortunately, those cliches don't win football games. Talented players do, and the Panthers have the worst secondary in the league by a very, very, big mile.

Gettleman came out and made a point that we wouldn't be trading back into today's round. Not only is that worrisome how definitively he said that... It really, really speaks to the fact that he has no interest in playing for this season. When you make a stubborn decision to stick closely to your board and not respond to the changing events in the draft, you are forced to make such decisions with more thought.


No poo.

If Rivera was my coach I'd give up too.

I love the pick. There is still free agency to address S and RG.

Here's another bonus: now Hardy won't have to play inside and get beat-up playing DT on passing downs.

Now he can play every down at his natural position.


A three tackle rotation is essential and this move tremendously helps out both Alexander and Hardy. Fresh and consistent pressure.

A top d-line and a QB are the two biggest keys to a championship

I like this pick. We should have solved our problems at DT for a long time with this draft. We could still use some players in the secondary and some OL help and another WR but we only have so many draft picks. If our front seven is as good on the field as it looks on paper right now then our defense just became a top ten unit.

CJ, Kraken, Alexander, Star, Short, Dwan; seems like we are trying to copy the Giants... go figure.


The Carolina Charger Giants, lol


Chargers big play ability on offense mixed with Giants big play ability on defense.... There have been far worse things to happen to this franchise and maybe nothing better.

You're looking in to this pick way too much. Kawan Short is a pick for the future, not necessarily for the present. We just solidified our d-line, something we havn't been able to say in a while. Be happy.
