In Topic: Round 1 - Carolina Panthers Select Shaq Thompson

You must be clairovoyant and/or another one of those youtube scouts. All kidding aside,  Did DG get lucky when Shaq Thompson fell to 25? I'm guessing that he must've been in the top 10-15 on a lot of teams' draft boards for this to be such a brilliant pick.

They are considerably more in tune than our band of youtube scouts.

Here's to hoping. If nothing else, at least Byron Bell won't be one the glaring weaknesses on the OL next year. 

 

Team needs aside, it still seems like an incredibly risky pick. It seems like a lot of people are assuming that he'll be able to  to grow into LB and that he's ready to plug right in at Safety until TD's gone. It's jmo, but that hardly seems like a given when he's never even played Safety before. If they wanted to go the Safety route over WR and OT, Landon Collins seems like the smarter/safer pick. 

 

I don't get the Kam Chancellor comparisons at all. Chancellor's 6'3" and a freak of nature at Safety. Shaq Thompson seems more like a classic tweener. again jmo and hopefully it's way off.

Offense can help the team win. Didn't say it doesn't.

It isn't like our offense was terrible, we can score (don't believe me go watch 2011 season again) . We just don't light up the scoreboard.

We still have 8 picks left I am sure we will draft at least one offensive guy ;)

Too late. I guess your parents would say the same thing, though.

Please never procreate

As long as it's still the team with the most points that gets the W, having an offense that can put points on the board should be considered "helping the team win". Look at the college game right now. The NFL's trending in that direction, too. 

We are building a team to win, not just make Cam look good

I wouldn't think of Perriman and Dorsett as "second tier WRs". Both of them were off the board by pick 29. 

This is just a fact that many just don't comprehend. Defense puts you in the position to win championships. Look at the last couple Super Bowl champs. Unless you have an ungodly talent at QB like Brady and Rodgers who can make any receiver and oline look good, you need the super strong defense to win it all (see ravens, Seahawks, and giants).

I'm all for getting Cam help but not if that means picking a tier two receiver just because that's what the masses want.
