How about our 5th (or 6th) round pick for Denarius Moore? Edit: Tweet @Panthers #6thfor@DenariusMoore. Worth a shot

Personally, I smell another Domenik Hixon. No thanks. Better off drafting one in the 5th.

 

Hixon has been in the league since 2006 and is 29 years old (plus he'll be 30 before Moore is 26)

Moore has played since 2011 and is barely 25 years old

 

 

Games: 76  Receptions: 109  Yards: 1,460   Avg: 13.4  Ypg: 19.2  TDs: 7      8-year production

 

Games: 41  Receptions: 130   Yards: 2,054  Avg: 15.8   Ypg: 50.1 TDs: 17    3-year production

 

 

Moore played with Jason Campbell, Carson Palmer, Terrelle Pryor, Matt Mcgloin, Matt Flynn, Kyle Boller

Hixon has played with Eli Manning and Cam Newton

 

And I am not going to even begin comparing their fellow receivers.

 

Personally, I don't know of any WR that's going to be left in the 5th that is going to have better upside than Moore. Perhaps Devin Street or Cody latimer, I don't know, but they are certainly not locks to have the upside of Moore, and definitely won't have the experience to come in and make an instant impact. 

 

Oh, yeah, the injuries...

Dude. No. Moore is not Hixon in the least. If we got Moore for a 5th call the police cause that's highway robbery!

Not sure where they're projected to go now, but...

 

Mike Davis, Shaq Evans, Robert Herron, Tevin Reese, Austin Franklin.

 

But I'm the kind of guy who thinks that for a position like wide receiver, almost anyone can do the job if given the shot. It's just a matter of who can show up and go through the motions versus who can be a game changer. We already know the type of player Moore is. Good, not great. Some guy in the 5th could be amazing.

I guess that a lot depends on one's definition of good vs great.  I preserve great for the special guys, so to get a good receiver in the 5th would make me smile.  Moreover, I can't rightly say that Moore can't be great, but I think that you would probably agree that he can be very good (or solid, at the very least).  Remember that Moore is just getting into his prime.  Give him some other play-makers to run with and Cam Newton to catch balls from, and Moore really could break out.  Let's say we have Smitty in the slot, (draft guy, e.g., Benjamin, Cooks, or Beckham) on one side, and Moore on the other---not to mention Olsen/B-Will---if the defenses leave Moore on an island, it will be at their own peril.  If they don't leave Moore on an island, it would still be at their own peril.  

 

Yeah, some of the guys you mentioned may be available in round 5, and may be good (or bad or mediocre), when you can invest in Moore that you already know has been good under less than stellar circumstances? I guess the answer depends on belief, philosophy and circumstances.  Moore has that pro experience though. Offer a trade. If it works, then bring him in and let him compete for a starting spot. At the end of the day, I know that i wouldn't bet against him against the likes of McNutt, King or Ginn. But if one of those guys would win out, I can tell you that this would bode well for our receiving corps in the future. Plus, our receiving corps would have better depth than most.

I mean, obviously all of that is true, but I think wideout is probably the most easily replaceable position in football honestly. There are so many guys that can be solid and fill the role of a #2 or #3 receiver. Guys already on our roster, guys in the draft, guys buried on other rosters, free agents, etc. When watching more, he's clearly solid and could fill in as a decent #2 or #3 guy, but so can LaFell, Ginn, maybe even Hixon, etc. However, I personally don't think he's a #1 star receiver. Any one of these late round prospects COULD be. Sure, they can also be terrible, but why not take the risk? It's a 5th rounder, and at the very least, he wont play at all and we'll run with a free agent, Donald LaFell, Teddy Ginn, etc at the 2 and 3.

 

It's the Cam Newton complex. Cam was unproven and many labelled him as a future bust. But there was a chance that he'd be a bonafide superstar. Sure, we could've taken Patrick Peterson or AJ Green who were likely safer picks, but neither one of those guys can single handedly win championships. The difference between a Cam Newton and a Jimmy Clausen versus the difference between a Patrick Peterson and a Captain Munnerlyn is much bigger and more important, and can single handedly be the difference of a 2-14 team and a playoff team.

I'm not gonna lie, I'd trade a 5th rounder for Denarius Moore. But of course some of you already know that I've been angling to get D-Moore for months now. I've followed him, and I am completely convinced that dude's got game. He just needs a change of scenery. I would do it especially if we could get him signed for an additional year or two. I don't know why the Raiders failed to get him more involved in the flow of their offense other than being in Dennis Allen's doghouse, but I am sure that part of it had to be their lackluster QB situation.

Well, this guy, Vic Lopez who blogs about the Raiders feels that the Raiders should be happy to get a 5th for Moore. Many have the Raiders taking Sammy Watkins in the draft as well, so it makes even more sense for them to obtain picks to fill up other holes.

Moore could do wonders opening up our offense. He is a legit play-maker that has the upside at the probable relatively cheap price that G-man relishes and our cap demands. Why get some unproven project in the 5th when we could land a potential WR2 with sneaky WR1-like upside? Dave Gettleman should get on the phone with Reggie Mackenzie.

5th rounder for a one year rental?

Pass

I can't say that I blame you, but I'm still on board.  I'm certain that G-man would work out a longer term deal even after the fact. But I did allude to the fact that it would be better to sign him for an additional year or two.

Moore would be incredible value for a 5th. He is a legitimate #2 WR. Unfortunately, the Panthers do not have a track record for making these sort of trades.

We just need a guy with exceptional hands. Does he have exceptional hands? Otherwise, he's not worth the pick because we can get more value at 5 with a DB, OL, TE or OLB.

perfect fit.

 

He only makes 1.38 and has one year left on his contract.  We can afford him, and if he doesn't pan out,

we owe him nothing after the season.

 

 

but lets offer a 6th.

 

We got Klein with a 5th last year.  Getty finds good players in the 5th.

Hell, I could argue that a guy with just good hands would be an upgrade.  We need a play-maker. Not only has Moore displayed exceptional hands, he has play making ability.
