I was listening today to Jamie Dukes and Eric Davis still criticizing the Panthers for not bringing in a WR. 

My take is we had to make choices in the 1st round...... and I agree with the pick of Star.I guess the question is was there a guy in the 2nd round that would have supplanted LeFell ?

What free agent WR's have been available that would have a chance to start over Smith or Lafell?

 

A second round rookie would not start over either.

 

Ginn was brought in to compete for that 3rd WR spot in 3 wide sets.

 

I am not sure Dukes or Davis have a clue on what they are talking about.

I think Hixon was brought in to fill the number 3 spot. Ginn might be the number 4 and do punt returns. I think Ginn could move up if he works on his hands.

So Hixon and Ginn don't count? 

 

I also love how LaFell is totally overlooked as a viable # 2 receiver.

I agree.....we did not have the cap space to grab a tier one WR in the FA market so the alternative was the draft.

Also, can we go ahead and throw Greg Olsen in any passing offense topics? He is a hell of a good receiver, just not of the wide variety.

Sexy positions are the only ones that matter to ESPN/NFLN guys.

And who had the cap space and the draft picks to pick any of them?

I also think if we improved the OL and the routes the number 2 runs it would make the position more relevant.Last year much of LaFells success came where he was in the slot position.
