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.
