Would you be opposed to a Julio Jones type draft day trade for a stud WR?

Use one draft pick on a player who busts? Bad, but manageable.

Use several to get just one player and he busts? Big problem.

This scenario isn't even applicable to us because we will be in position to draft a WR anyway....

 

We will be in the Watkins/Evans range when we pick and one of those would be a fine first round pick.(prefer Watkins though)

Just for clarity, where do you have us finishing?

What needs to do we have other than WR and O line? Our D is set, I truely believe we have one of the worst and most inconsistent WR corps in the league and yes thats Smitty including, if Smitty retires and teams double Lafell lol, its game over for our offense. We need a playmaker bad.

Stock piling picks wouod make sense for us 2 years ago, but if we are now contenders, it makes more sense for un to draft that one final superstar piece to put us over the top. You really wouldnt make a trade for a Julio Jones or AJ green type WR if he was there for a trade? We really arent in rebuild more anymore.

 

Remember when the Eagles went out and got TO to put them over the top?

Yea.

I'd rather get a handful of receivers and linemen than just 1.  We need at least 2 receivers, but they don't need to be superstars, they just need to be good.

it was a good for the falcons they just dicked it up by bouncing out of the playoffs twice, then not resigning key pieces and not getting a competent DC but now its too late they might be fugged for the net couple of years. we don't need a julio type wr to take the net step but we do need a ot, hell a good te would solve alot of things as well

It's tempting bc Mike Evans would be amazing.  As others have pointed out since Cam throws high a lot we need a big WR who can go up and reel in passes.  That's Mike Evans but he's going top 10 no doubt.  I still say no to doing it but it'd be tempting.  Evans could complete Cam.

Kenan allen has 568 yards and 3 TDs in the NFL, what's Mike Evan's NFL stats? The point is you never know how good they will really be til they are in the league.

 

And you're right, the Panthers haven't drafted a game changing WR since Smitty, but A.  Gettleman has been here for one draft and didn't select a WR period, and B. If finding a game changing WR was that easy, every team would be loaded, and you wouldn't have teams like the Patriots, Dolphins, and Raiders who are pretty barren at the position.  

 

Allen is nowhere near comparable to Vincent Jackson. You wanna talk about poor comparisons... jeez. Being drafted to San Diego isn't enough. The fact is Evans is comparable to V-Jax because of his size (6'5, 230 lbs) and ability to attack the ball at it's highest point and using his body effectively against defenders. It doesn't matter if he flops. Evans is more Jackson than Allen will ever hope to be. It's that damn simple.

 

There's still no damn guarantee in taking a WR in the mid-rounds and molding him into a star. Chances are you'll get a serviceable target and nothing more. The fact is if you want a game-changer at WR, you'll need a spot in the top 15 in any draft.

That has been our problem, drafting WRs in later rounds. We need a stud WR in the 1st round, its time.

Just FYI... of the top 30 current receivers in the NFL in total receiving yards right now, the average round grade for those top 30 receivers is Round 3. And the average overall choice grade is Choice 87.

So the average grade of the current Top 30 receivers in the NFL right now is near the BOTTOM of the 3rd Round.

If we are picking in the mid to late 20s, would you be opposed to a blockbuster draft day trade for say a Sammy Watkins or the top WR of that draft? Our D is set, we dont need anymore pieces aside from mid level depth we can just get on the cheap in FA. Yes O line is a concern but we are in DESPERATE need for a true playmakimg WR and if Sammy Watkins owns the combine and pro day, I dont think I would be opposed to it. We have the best backfield in the NFL, we have our franchise QB, we can build the O line through mid level FAs and later in the draft. What we are lacking in a huge way is a true stud WR.

If we make it to the playoffs, and with virtually no glaring holes on the defense, I say Gettleman should pull the trigger to put us over the top. Im thinking maybe a 1st and 2nd, or maybe more if their is a good enough WR.

Hell no
