Who would we have taken at 14 if Star wasn't there?

Have you guys heard anything on this?  We were very fortunate that Star fell to us obviously.  Do you think we would have gone Richardson (assuming the Jets didn't) if Star was gone?  What about Floyd?

 

I get the feeling we would have gone "hogmollie" even if Star wasn't there.

It would have been Floyd. Not even hard.

But assuming that if Star and Floyd wasnt there, it may have been Vaccaro or even Matt Elam.

Matt Elam said he was surprised that the Ravens took him. He was thinking the Panthers or some other teams were going to take him.

Everything from the Panther's beat Reporters and leaks says that the pick would have been Eifert.

Eifert, although I want to say I read Xavier Rhodes was a big option as well.

Everything being reported was Eifert and Rhodes were the other two being considered.

Take that for what it us worth

Eifert and Rhodes might have been the top guys going into the draft, but not during it. Even if Star were to be taken before 14, think it would be hard for the Panthers to pass up on Floyd.

But yea, considering Star and Floyd gone Eifert and Rhodes may have been our guys.

Most team's didn't have Floyd in the top 20 players of the draft, I highly doubt the Panther's did either. Since they had Short as a better Pass rusher then Floyd. I'd wager that the Panther's probably had Short over Floyd.

It's hard believing that. I'm sure the Panthers would have had Floyd right behind of Star if they knew both of them were going to be there at 14. I would think Floyd would have been projected higher than Short on Panthers' board even though Gettleman said he was the best pass rushing DT in this draft. That's what everyone GM say. Remember Idzik and the Jets said they were stunned bc they got two of their top 4 guys in Milliner and Sheldon. Hard to believe it.

No....it has been reported that Eifert and Rhodes were the other two guys being discussed in the Panthers War Room as possible picks if Star were not there.

As others have said, everything that has been reported has said either Eifert or Rhodes were the two options. Gettleman outright said we considered offense so there's that as well.

Would've been happy with either. Some of you get so obsessed with the supposed "genius" of trading down you don't see how many nice prospects were available to us.

I assume Floyd would also have been considered but that's tough to say for sure. We've had Short rated as highly as anyone for what has been quite apparently some time now. Considering the two are similar, we might have held off.
