So you don't think he was a reach? Bc I'm pretty sure if we didn't take him no one would've in the first
No, he was not a reach based on Gettlemen's draft board. He was the best player available. No reason to make the draft harder than it has to be. You spend thousands of hours rating players and figuring out who fits your team best.
A few weeks ago he was all over the draft board around our pick. He ran a slower 40 time at the combine and started to drop.
There's a reason the Panthers always "rush" to put in their pick when it's there turn. We actually go by our draft board. The picks are already made, especially in the first round.
