These are the 3 most likely scenarios we're looking at in 2014. This is sad. A camp casualty or late free agent signee becoming our starting left tackle or #1 receiver is possible, but I wouldn't consider it "likely". Rank these 3 in order of "best" scenario to worst.

 

1. Cotchery and Underwood at WR, rookie 1st rounder at LT

2. Rookie and Cotchery at WR, rookie 1st rounder at LT

3. Rookie and Cotchery at WR, Bell at LT (any scenario with Bell as our starting left tackle is a doomsday/nightmare scenario)

 

Not considering Cotchery and Underwood at WR with Bell at LT, because I see no way we don't draft a WR or T with our 1st rounder.

 

What's your ranking?

I dont see how we can run it well enough with Bell as LT and the current cast of linemen to hide cotchery and a rookie WR. it seems to me that a rookie LT would make the biggest impact from day one.

I just don't see a day one starter at LT available with the 28rh pick. The only way to get one would be trade up into the top 5-10. So Bell has pretty much locked down the LT spot, might look to improve RT with a prospect that might be able to make the switch to LT after a season or two.


Hence why I've been saying first round had got to be either secondary, Te or Wr.

Cotchery will  not be the WR1 under any circumstances.

Did an article say something about amini getting a shot at LT? Or was that speculation based on the fact he played the position in college. The fans act like we were completed caught off guard when gross retired. You have to know that the FO had some sort of backup plan in place when they basically turned his contract into a one year deal.

We won't have a true #1 WR, it'll be by committee, we need a starting tackle or two. Give cam more time and improve the run game

Pretty much have to leave amini at LG to help Bell with the transition.

Thats the plan if Bell is in fact the starter at LT. I'm probably wrong, but I thought I read he'd get a shot too. They seem pretty high in Chandler. And I kind of expect them to pick up some vets after training camp or even after the season starts. Think Wharton last year. Is it after week 1 or 2 when the salary isnt guaranteed?

I think we will count on Olsen and a highly drafted TE to help with the receiving and running game.  This will make our tackles better by default and they chip DEs. I think Bell will be on the left side but with Amini there it won't be as awful as people think.  Chandler will be the right tackle and Williams/Kugbila will be the RG.  I think this line will be okay not good.  I don't know who will be in the slot or out wide since we don't know who will make the opening day roster at this point.

Why would we be moving 3 guys when we just need to move 2? That's really an ass backwards way to deal with 1 guy leaving.

If god is great we will Draft Moses at #28 and Matthews in the 2nd round and be skipping merrily along back to the playoffs.

Moses is a Rt for at least the first season though and that leaves Bell at Lt still. Like I said, Bell is the Lt unless the Panthers can trade into the top ten.

I've been thinking about drafting a TE in the first couple rounds like ASJ or Amaro, help with the run and pass game. Plus we've gone to a short efficient pass game, cams gotten better in the short game
