Draft Discussion

Recommended Posts

Much has been said about the WR/OT need in the upcoming draft. even if Carolina double or triple dips at WR and OT, that will still leave us with 1-3 picks we can use for other needs. here's my question, where do you, the Huddle, expect those picks to go? CB, G, TE, and S are all options ive heard tossed around. Even a backup QB for Cam has been mentioned.

 

my thinking is that the pick will go to a CB or G. we have three starters at SS/FS (Godfrey, Harper, and Lester), two of which are vets who have played SS and FS (Godfrey and Harper) in their career. the only way i see Carolina using an extra pick on a S is if we plan to cut Godfrey as a cap-casualty. as for taking a TE, i think one of the 2-3 WR picks could end up being a TE instead, especially if by some miracle Eric Ebron falls to us in the 1st. 

 

that leaves CB and G in my opinion. i dont know which is more likely. we have a respectable stable of young CB's led by vet Antoine Cason. the younger guys could take a huge step of improvement this year. but i could also see Carolina taking a rook CB to groom/provide roster competition. G isnt an immediate need. we have guys, provided they can stay healthy, that can start and succeed. but looking at the roster, i dont see alot of depth. perhaps we could take a G just to provide depth. 

 

what say you, O Huddle? for what should the Panthers use the picks they dont use on WR/OT?

WR/TE

OT

WR/TE

OLB/DE/CB/S

If we plan on cutting DLo and/or Stew next season I could see another RB

I didn't want Marqise Lee originally, but I'm warning up to him.

CBs!!!! After seattle's dominance on D last year I fully expect that to be the going trend.....big, lengthy, physical corners

 

if you look at the CBs picked up by gettleman, they already fit that mold.  here is a look at our current CBs:

 

 

20 Cason, Antoine CB 6-1 195
 
31 Dockery, James CB 6-1 185 
 
26 Menzie, De'Quan  CB 5-11 200
 
32 Presley, De'Andre CB 5-10 190
 
24 Norman, Josh CB 6-0 200 
 
22 Thomas, Josh CB 5-11 190
 
23 White, Melvin CB 6-1 205

 

(sorry if the format is off.  copy and pasted from panthers.com)

 

 

 

4 of these guys are 6-0 or better.  I know gettlemen didn't pick all of these guys, but you can only believe that's the direction he is going.

Somewhere, after the 4th round, I would be surprised if we did not pick a C.  Beyers is gone and we really have no one else that has ever played C on the team.   One of the 5th, 6th, or 7th picks will be a C/G type player.

Would not surprise me to see us draft David Yankey.

He would make the team better!

1st-Yankey/Cooks/Pryor

2nd-Mathews/Moncrief/Adams/McGill

3rd-Billy Turner/Bitonio/Archer

4th-Pierre Desir/Ross Cockrell/Seantrel Henderson

5th-Brandon Coleman/Larry Webster/Fleming/DT from Princeton

6th-Colt Lylera

7th-BPA

This is kinda how I see the draft going

Either way we go, having all 7 picks, I truly believe Getts can get a legit, starting WR and 2 other Starters.

Dream Draft would be 2 OL starters, 1 starting CB, and a legit WR

I don't know that I want a Guard in the first, I like our guys and am not a fan of guards in the first round, though I do like him as a prospect. He's a plug and play guy.
