Kenny Britt has baller potential. Britt and Nicks are the two I would want. McCluster wouldn't be a bad pick up.

Not much of an analyst are you? Maclin, Decker, Boldin and Hicks weak.

Any one of these guys would be a HUGE upgrade over LaFell. Sitting at 28 the chances of a TOP TIER WR in round 1 is very slim. Oh you can reach and take a 2nd round prospect in round one. Or you could take a smaller gamble and take on of these guys.


which receivers in the draft do you consider "top tier"?

Hurney couldn't draft for offense to save his life (job).

 

The guy was about to make me no longer be a Panthers fan.

That's just the receivers we passed on for inferior talent, and it's not an exhaustive list.

 

Trust me, if I posted some of the other talent we passed on, people would be clawing their eyes out :(

Oh, I'm aware.

 

I was the conductor on the "fire Hurney train" for a very long time.

 

Look at our offensive roster and see what Hurney drafted.  It's enough to make you physically ill.

I tried defending him up until a day when I decided to review something like the last five drafts at the time.

 

When I sat down and looked at those results, I just couldn't do it anymore.

You and Cyber....two guys who are pretty level headed....Cyber still defends him.  I couldn't understand it.

 

Linebackers and Runningbacks galore though....

A Super Bowl buys you a lot of cred...

 

In 03 and 05, it really looked like we were gonna be good.  Even in 08, up till the playoff disaster.

 

Looking back on it now, it's pretty clear Seifert left us in a good spot despite the final record.  high draft picks and some decent free agent pickups helped for a while.  That, plus as I recell our division was overall weaker back then. 

 

But what we had wasn't sustainable without good drafting and management.  It was only a matter of time before we fell to earth.  And when we did, ouch :(

 

It's almost surprising we had the success we did.

Seifert left us much better than what fans like to remember.

 

Either way, I hope that DG has a better eye for offensive talent, and understands the game well enough to get the right pieces.

You missed out these guys.

Emmanuel Sanders
Tiquan Underwood
Jericho Cotchery
James Jones
Mario Manningham
Jacoby Jones
Riley Cooper
Jerome Simpson
Andre Roberts
Dexter McCluster
Josh Morgan

I actually like the kid from the bucs Underwood big tall deep threat looked a nice player to me and would be cheap If Tampa don't bring him back, if be happy with him & McCluster plus a draft pick up at receiver, both cheap deals and McCluster is a good proven slot guy that people are talking about with drafting Brandon Cooks.

 

 

James Jones is a really good friend of mine. He and Ron Rivera have the same agent. He's a beast, and gets under utilized in Green Bay

Given his history, I'm not sure you can call Kenny Britt "low risk".


Low risk is, for me, meant to evaluate the amount of damage he could do to this team be it financially or otherwise , not himself. Sure he could go to Jail or get injured etc but that wouldn't really hurt as a team given that we wouldn't pay him a lot nor be content with just him as our WR future.

panthers and other teams normally carry 4-6 WRs, currently 3 are under contract. im about 99% sure the panthers will draft a WR, so that alone makes 4, which is the norm active on game day.

 

im also rather sure the panthers want to resign ginn, so thats 5. panthers are close to the cap given FAs and hardy. 

 

 

5 i believe is the number for this coming yr, since many already believe mike zordich will be on the 53. 

 

take all that in...... unless its a minimum deal, i see no reason to sign a WR (unless hicks takes FAAAR less + 3-5 contracts are reconstructed + hardy is gone)

I hope we take a look at jacoby ford. I have always liked him. not sure if he is a FA with the raiders or not, but I would love to bring him in for a look.

We will have to upgrade the WR spot via the draft and not free agency.  The good news is that WR is probably the strongest position in this year's draft.
