2014 NFL draft prospects

237 posts in this topic

With the defense we have at our possession, we're picking in the 17-20 range.

 

Therefore, we draft L. Purifoy (DB) in the first, J. Matthews (WR) in the second and B. Coleman (WR) in the third.

didn't see the game, how did he do?

 

the plays i watched, he seemed to do a decent job at LT. he also moves pretty well in run blocking, and got to the LBs easily. also pass protected well when i was watching.wish i could have caught more of the game.

(1st): OL

(2nd): DB

(3rd): WR/TE

 

How about invest the future and later round picks (worthless in Panthers' history) back into the 1st? Possessing two 1st rounders:

 

(1st) OL: Lewan, Kouandjio, Hurst, Richardson

(1st) CB: Purifoy, Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Verrett, Colvin

 

FA: (WR) Nicks/Maclin and OG

True but I hate trading away future first rounders 

 

Like the idea of OL in the first:  secondary is hurting but so is the OL badly,  front 7 can hold teams in check for now but it starts in the trenches on the O end as well.  Cam needs protection our Highly paid RB's need holes.  Also Gross isn't getting younger, he's still good but he is slowly showing a little age in certain aspects see getting beat off the edge today for the sack.  Alternate: Clinton-Dix-Ball hawking safety 

 

2nd: DB best available safety or CB.  Our Corners are young and a few have shown promise (see norman)  but young can still find solid shutdown corners falling into the 2nd or a solid Safety.  Either would show up big with our front 7.  OL

 

3rd: WR/TE if there is a higher ranked TE on the board, take him to pair with Olson.  Solid TE duo can do wonders, see Olson/Shockey duo cams rook year.  A 3rd round WR can be a solid #2 down the road and if we can get a guy like Nicks in FA put the rook on the other side and you can finally move Smith to a Welker role in the slot.

 

FA:  Nicks- wish we can get ahold of him somehow, maybe with some of the injuries he's had and being a charlotte native (actually remember reading an article while he was at indy that Smith was one of his favorite players in the NFL) maybe we can get him a little cheap.

OG:  find some Vet OG who's about to retire to come in for depth and help mentor Amini and Kug

 

 

 

 

Also wouldn't mind this at all:

 

1st: Clinton-Dix- As much help as we need at OL,  this pick would be just about as good.  Super ball hawking Safety to help out our young corners Norman etc

2nd: Ebron- love this not just because a UNC fan, Ebron with Olson in 2 TE sets would be Nice, plus Ebron is a Good blocker for a TE

3rd: WR

I am a huge fan of Ekpre-Olomu and especially Verrett. I do however think that I would try to use the first on one of the bigtime receivers, Watkins or Lee, then go with OL or CB BPA.

Now if we have a solid draft and FA this offseason and were back in contention to win the NFCS and one of the top teams in the whole NFC.  Now this is less likely to happen But I would Love to to see looking forward the next year us pull an ala Atlanta Julio situation and  move up and grab Todd Gurley hometown kid who imo is the next Peterson.  Have a Gurley Barner duo going forward and we could finally cut ties with the old smash and dash duo and use those cap space on other positions that you would try to fix with that extra pick you traded up to get TG.  

 

Lock up the D.  If we stick with shula,  2 TE sets of Ebron/Olson and RB duo of GurleyBarner with Cam QBing = winning.

big fan of Ekpre-Olomu as well, and he was somebody i was going to mention in this weeks standouts. the guy is physical and can play man with the best.extremely good at pressing, but hands could get him into trouble in the NFL.

All of the top corners have trouble with too much contact down field.  It's something that will have to be considered if we draft a CB.

true, i like CBs that are physical. his man skills are some of the best i have seen, including from the group of CBs last year. he can press and play off man with the best.
