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

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.


I know. I said you were right. I'm just saying that might've been the discussion not knowing Floyd was going to be there also. I would say that was the plan to take Rhodes or Eifert if Star wasnt there going into the draft. Once the draft started and Floyd begin to slip. I'd assume at pick 13 (jets) the Panthers would've consider Floyd higher than Rhodes and Eifert.

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.

Easy to believe the Short is the best pass rushing DT in the draft. It is factual, not Gettlefluff. Floyd went where he belonged.

From what i've heard I feel like it would have been Eifert- which would have been fine with me.

I think Richardson would have been the pick, assuming the Jets took Star instead of Richardson.  We might have taken Hankins in the 2nd round instead of Short if we took Richardson in the 1st. 

 

I think, Star/Short > Richardson/Hankins
