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

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

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.

I think we need OL before anything else and then get Cam some weapons.  Here are a couple of scenarios that would interest me. 

 

OT in the first -- Richardson or Hurst.  Unless one of the guys like Lewan, Big Cy, Matthews 

WR in the second --  Moncrief, Evans, Coleman, Matthews

BPA --- DB, TE, OG.  Loston?   

 

 

Round 1 - Austin Serafin Jenkins 

Round 2 - Moncrief, Evans, Coleman, Matthews

Round 3 - Sentrel Henderson

good list.  Collins is LT for LSU this season and he's off to a good start.  Is Seantrel Henderson any good?

week 2 standouts

 

Dominique Easley, DT/DE Florida. this is a guy who has always jumped out on tape, but is now doing so on a more consistent basis. he has a great jump off the ball,and regularly beats guys to the gap he is supposed to go thru. one series he dominated and the Miami OL could do nothing with him. the beauty of this was he line up at 3 different spot along the DL on this series, at a 1 tech(NT 4 DL look), a 3 tech( 4 DL look), and either a 6 or 7 tech(DE in a 3 DL look) on the right side. while at the 1, he beat the C who had his hands on him, but disengaged and made a tackle for lost. the next play he was lined up at the 3 and beat the OG to get into the backfield where the RB had to try to bounce the run out which resulted in another TKL. and finally at the DE spot he used a nice bend around the edge to beat the LT and forced him to get held on a 3rd and long. 

 

DeVante Parker, WR Louisville. a huge target, and go to guy for the best QB in college football. Teddy knows he has a freak of nature on the outside, and is not scared to use him.Parker is a vertical guy, who also has the size to make any catch over a DB. he displayed this vs Eastern Kentucky where Teddy B lobbed a fade route to him and he literally put his nuts on the guys helmet while catching the ball at its high point. he has deceptive speed, and i really have been impressed with this guys ability. finished with 5 catches 134 yards, and 2 TDs day. keep an eye on this guy because he will rise as the season goes on if he continues to ball, reminds me a lot of Bay- Bay Thomas WR for the broncos.

 

Devin Gardner, QB Michigan. a big athletic QB who has a cannon for a arm. made some great throws and reads while facing a decent ND defense.will need to be more consistent in his decision making, but that will come with experience.  he also made some pretty big plays with his feet inside and outside of the pocket. i really cannot see why this coaching staff had Denard in front of him because he looks like a better QB. played WR last year some, but he reminds me of another guy who did the same in Tannehill.

 

Paul Richardson, WR Colorado. played with Marqise Lee at Serra High in LA, but Paul leads the country in receiving yards thru 3 weeks. he is also an explosive WR like his former teammate with decent vertical speed. in 2 weeks he already has 21 catches, 417 yards , and 4 TDs. there is the injury scare as he is coming off a torn ACL last year, so him staying healthy will keep this prospect on the radar of the scouts. he wins getting deep down the field, and is not scared to throw his body around or go across the middle. he looks completely healthy so far this year, and has not had any setbacks with the knee.

 

Todd Gurley, RB Georgia. an AP clone.big, tough,speed back who will run over you or around you. 6'1 232 soph from Tarboro, NC, every NC school should be kicking themselves for allowing him to leave the state. some sophomores should be able to leave early, and he is one. hits the hole downhill every time, and has decent vision. could improve on pass blocking, but that is said about every young RB. hopefully he stays healthy.

 

La'el Collins, OT/OG LSU. big guy who has made the transition from OG to OT this past year, and looks like he might have earned him some more money by doing so. one of the best run blocking tackles i have seen this year, and has really good feet in pass protection. earned the trust of the LSU staff to start at the blind side of Mettenberger. helped produce over 400 yards vs UAB.

 

Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB Oregon. one of the best press man/off man CBs in college football. can shadow WRs and stay on there help with ease. very aggressive in press man, and can get a PI every now and then but you have to love his aggressive style. had a good battle with the USC WR last year, and got a huge pick in the end zone in that game. will come up and strike you in run support, not afraid of contact. in zone, can read the QB really well, and breaks on the football with ease.

 

Jaylen Watkins, CB/S Florida. a long rangy guy who lines up at CB and FS for the gators. another good man guy who mirror his man and stays on the guys hips. would love to see him more at CB because i think he translate there better, but the other 2 CBs on Florida are pretty decent as well.guess i should mention Marcus Roberson here as well. plays really well, and gets his hands on a lot of balls. played tough on WRs and had good coverage until he got hurt and left the game vs Miami.

Aaron Murray, QB Georgia

Alex Neutz, WR Buffalo

Allen Robinson, WR Penn St
