9. Luke Kuechly, LB, Carolina
A disaster who has done nothing but brought his franchise shame since being draf— oh, wait, I got confused. What is a superstar doing in the middle of this mess? Luke Kuechly fell on draft day because teams aren’t interested in using high draft picks on middle linebackers, so give deposed Panthers general manager Marty Hurney (and head coach Ron Rivera) a ton of credit. Kuechly has turned into a franchise cornerstone, winning defensive player of the year in his second season while quickly becoming football’s best middle linebacker. It’s going to be a joy to watch him play for years to come. Let’s just hope he’s not the next victim of this miserable class.
The Bills are shopping WR TJ Graham according to some weak rumors.
Strong rumors suggesting they are shopping OL Kraig Urbik, due $2.275mm IIRC. He would likely be an upgrade to the Panthers. No idea what he would be worth, but Panthers offering a conditional 5th or 6th...
depth at most. former Bill. Not exactly...well... don't like him.
Butler is a former Bill, maybe best only as a depth guy and a package player.
If the panthers are offering a 5th an OL then they don't like their OL as much as they say.
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
