Why don't we just trade out of the 1st round and end up with 2 2nds + 2 3rds. Problem solved, 4 starters in deep draft.

28 is almost a 2nd in itself

Why would another team do that?

If you want to watch tape on Moses, watch him against Clemsons' Vic Beasley... I believe Beasley was second in the ACC in sacks.

Beasley had 0 sacks, 0 tackles for a loss, 0 QB hurries, and 1 assisted tackle against Moses.

 

link? can't find it

Not sure if this link will work cause I'm posting it from my phone. If it doesn't just go to draft breakdown.com and look up Morgan Moses.

He's probably average in run blocking but I'd say he's an above average pass protector.

There's some other solid videos on there as well.

I'd hope we're open to a trade down.  

 

We could pull something like Moses OT, Matthews/Adams WR, Turner OT 

 

That'd be my pipedream scenario.

I feel like having a number 1 receiver is more important right now than a group of what will be 3rd stringers even with who is available in FA.

For somebody that knows nothing about assessing OT's, why is bending at the waste such a bad thing?

 

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I believe it's a bad thing because if you're bending at the waist, you are overextending yourself, which gives up leverage and allows the opponent to beat you.

he had a decent senior bowl week at LT, and looks natural at the position.long arms, but does bend at the waist a lot, but that can be fixed.

 

i love draft news.

 

Nailed it.  I read one article that called him a "dancing bear"  not able to generate much in the run game.  Who knows, but I mentioned about 2 weeks ago that I have a hunch he would be the guy--

 

If we were to sign both Jones and Cotchery in free agency, then we will probably target LT in the draft.  Gettlemen said BPA, but if you need a LT, a player like Morgan is pretty much the BPA.

 

Lets say we sign 2 free agent WRs--Draft Morgan.  There is still some WR talent that will be there at #60.

CONSPIRACY THEORY:

 

The Panthers don't really want Morgan Moses, but they are looking at him to make New Orleans take him at 27 or to keep other teams from leap frogging the Panthers to get Cooks or Beckham.  They will assume we need the T, wait for the WR to fall then, Boom.  Panthers get their man.

 

That is probably not the way this thing will go down at all.

I'm a UVA fan. I would like the pick of Moses. Good player but not sure if he would be a great LT.Think he could play it but would be better suited for RT. With that said how many guys past top 10 are ever more suited for LT unless they are a 3 yr project which we cant really do at this moment. 

 

We need to draft a project LT (development guy) this year late rounds we feel can develop and find guys for now either through draft or FA vet. Hoping we use 2-4 picks on O-Lineman this year.
