Man Strength

1st round CB

Recommended Posts



I'd be 100% happy with that. Fuller should somewhere around our pick. If a run on WR is made, then no sense reaching for one.

I don't want Varrett, too short. I'm fine with the rest.

I want a guy who can play both press and off, man and zone.

My preference is obviously offense, but if one of these guys in the BPA then I'm fine with it.

You dont want Verrett bc hes too short. But, you want a guy who can play both man and zone: exactly what Jason Verrett is. SMH

If we go CB, that player is going to play tough and be good at press.

I could make an argument that Rivera has a good defense where ever he goes, not because he has a lot of talent, but because we get players that do something really well that plays into the overall scheme. Like press man.

A CB might be skilled, but he wont be a panther if he is a finese guy.

Yes, height and skill set are two different things.

Seems simple enough.

I think Dennard, Gilbert, and Roby will all be gone by 28. I wouldn't mind any of the other guys listed, I just think there's better value elsewhere.

Let's assume for a minute that the value at OT and WR aren't, there in the first. In that scenario the next most likely position should be CB. Assuming that is the case, who would you want?

I really like Fuller. He fits our scheme perfectly, is big and talented and is likely to be available around our pick.

What say you?

that is a lot of assuming, and still not BPA.

That being said, I trust in Gettleman.

I am not fully buying the BPA approach (or I do not know what that means to the Panthers), but I can say that a lot depends on how much the Panthers actually believe the talk about the the young WRs or the "Bell to LT" project.

 

I do not expect a T to worth the 28th pick to be there at 28, and I think there are going to be WRs 28-75 that are all about equal.  So.......

 

There are positions that could attract Gettlemen that are both BPA (?) AND needs--but you have to remember one thing--the needs are not necessarily for 2014.  Gettlemen is looking longer term.  Most rookies go through adjustments and some hit the wall.  If you are drafting for 2014, you are probably making a mistake in some cases

 

About CB, we could take a player like Fuller, but I doubt it.  CBs are not "QBs, TD scorers, hog miollies, pass rushers" (the players Gettlemen said he likes).  I think CB in this defense is not prioritized.  I think he wants to be strong up the middle DT, MLB and S.  I think he wants the pass rushers. 

 

If not a WR or OT, I think it could be a S or a DE.  I think we know we will be without CJ or Hardy in 2015. 

 

Good thread.  Makes us think outside the box.

I had to post those assumptions or the thread would (and still did) become about drafting wr and ot (which i want). Just trying to see what cbs people like around 28
