Next priority... OT options (draft?)

21 March 2014 - 12:55 PM

The moves with Cotchery & Underwood for now ease the crisis some claimed at the WR position until the draft or as some in here hope the Desean Jackson trade (not likely) will finish our WR corps rebuild, this now can atleast let us concentrate on rebuilding the O-line, we prob need both a LT and a RT, Byron Bell is depth in my opinion, I don't see a lot of good free agent starters outhere so I guess Gettleman is going for a guy in the draft.

The three elite LT Robinson, Matthews, Lewan should all be gone by #15 that then leaves the next tier of prospects Morgan Moses, Zack Martin, and the two risky guys Antonio Richardson & Cyrus Koumandijo, all four are projected late first round-early second round graded players!.

I don't see we reach or even need too, if we do go BPA like many suggest we will, if a BPA WR or TE or even DB is there at #28 I can stil see the OT need made to wait, you have guys in the second-third round who aren't massive drop offs from those guys, James Hurst, Juwan James, Billy Turner, Jack Mewhort, Joel Bitonio.

The draft is deep and there's no need at all to reach and I don't expect Gettleman too, he's building a sustained competitor here in Charlotte, I was not one of the panic/sky falling in fans, I think we have a GM who's building a winner, the Hurney days are over....

Mario Manningham

Mario Manningham to meet with panthers over the weekend, don't know if it's true so don't shoot me for passing it on but according to nflbites and a few others on twitter and the web it's just a meeting not sure if we sign him but at this point options are limited, guess gettleman knows the guy and what he can or can't do.

No more smitty?

Steve smith jersey has been removed from the panthers online store? Haven't checked myself, but people saying so. Speculation frenzy

So what now at LT?

09 March 2014 - 07:31 PM

Got this off a poster in another topic, I saw this on twitter myself, if this doesn't worry you now I don't know what will, that's pretty much all the elite tackles gone and the prices aren't even as high as I'd imagined they would be, so unless there's a whole bunch of guys I have missed out on seeing in the OT FA lists, were gona go for a rookie from the draft to play at LT or use a guy on our roster?
Slightly worrying? no way the top three tackles drop to #28 in my opinion, the next three rated highly are Moses, Koumandijo, Richardson but are they really starters? There good prospects but with injury issues and two of those graded second rounders I just don't know if I'm comfortable with us not taking one of these top free agent tackles to replace Jordan and protect Cams blindside, I mean LT is the second biggest role on the roster?

THE Mr. Aaron Wilson recently put up an article about Eugene Monroe's contract negotiations with the Ravens, but also adds more information from his sources for the rest of the OL market.

I don't care id sign him even if it means he misses the first four games.
Four games without pay and another four games having to give up his pay.
