The 2013 NFL Draft: Carolina WR Smokescreen
Posted 28 April 2013 - 12:19 AM
If he drafted a WR, does he:
a) Draft a WR to replace Steve Smith?
b ) Draft a WR to be a #3-#4?
a) couldn't be accomplished with this draft and why would you draft another player #3-#4 receiver on a team with so many already?
The most important thing about this draft is that it gives us a reason to go with a premier WR in the first round in 2014.

1) I believe we would've taken Tavon Austin of any other player had he been there when we picked.
2) I believe we were trying to trade back before we realized that Star was going to be there at 14.
Maybe yes to #1
No to #2. There were 3 players we wanted when Tennessee picked. Gettleman said as much, after that Gettleman told people handling the phones to tell them they were not interested. I don't think we had any desire to trade back at all.

Rogers has potential but for him to ignored by the Bengals, Patriots and Cowboys for seven rounds... that's incredibly worrisome. I'm getting the feeling he did something more than just smoke weed.

Once we signed him, it was obvious to me that the team didn't like any of them enough to take early. My guess is that they saw a bunch of #2's and no #1 receivers, and we already have a young one of those that the team has made clear they like.

Our draft went elsewhere

It doesn't matter what your team needs obviously! Just draft the BPA!
