I would really like to pick up deanthony thomas late...the kid is super raw right now but you can pencil him in at PR, KR right now while he works on moving from running back to slot WR. you cant teach world class speed
C, Ealy was great value but tough to use a use a second on a kid that is not going to play much when we have some major holes, Turner is going to help the running game from day one and has some major upside he kind of made up for the Ealy pick but I think a double up on OT, OG would have benefited the team more
if i was Shula i would be looking over my shoulder, its going to be hard to have someone more qualified than he is at running the offense the panthers run. if we struggle I can see Shula being phased out or even fired
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.
