Efe Obada and next years draft.

Recommended Posts

This guy needs to be in our future plans even if he doesn"t show out much more this year then one big game. Hopefully they go heavy in the draft for passrushers (two at least.) 

With some experience he has a real chance. The defensive end position needs to be retooled. Take the two best ends that fall to us in the draft and add Obada. Don't think we will have the funds for a quality FA.

Efe has some learning but he never played the sport until 4 years ago. His pressure ability must stay here. 2 Qb hits last game. He is getting there to impact plays. Total QB hits the last 4 games he should have the most.  I would like to see him have more playtime vs Wes Horton to grow.

TBF, we've gotten good pressure on the QB the last couple games. Overall the front seven has done a better job of collapsing the pocket and getting in the backfield. Yeah, defensive end is a need but we also gonna need a linebacker because Mayo just isn't very good. Even when Luke tells him exactly what to do he still gets beat. Still need to replace Mike Adams but if we sign Reid long term then I think we can figure out the other safety spot. 

Honestly our biggest need might be the best interior lineman left in the draft, defense or offense, we need to be better at the point of attack on both sides of the ball.

Between Obada and Haynes I'm not as down on the future of the unit as I was, but if we can land one of the top pass rushers in the first round I cannot think of any other position to take instead.

I lied. I could see the argument for a perennial All Pro center.

Those young guys are solid as developmental prospects but the Panthers are going to need to sign a solid veteran FA after Peppers retires.

We're going to be picking last in the next draft. No telling who will be left on the board by then.

I hope Efe keeps developing, it sure would be a great story.

Not even the same. He may not have the sacks but his QB hits are top for the team the last 4 games. He is getting pressure. Pressures generate higher turnovers.

Well said. Although an argument could be made for signing a Safety if there is a can't miss prospect on the board when we pick. We could use a true ball hawk on the back end. It would be a tremendous boost to our secondary to pair him with Eric Reid.

At least we know we don't need to draft QB, RB, WR, LB, or TE in the first round next year. :)

I agree. Dude has one big game and everyone thinks he's the next Reggie White. We need to draft one and sign one. However, Addison has been alright this year. Also need to cut Poe after this year, find another DT. Needs to be an overall hog molly offseason.

Well Davis is leaving and Hurney loves linebackers so it's not out of the question we take one in the first.

Luke will still be starting at MLB. I'm assuming Shaq will be around as well. "IF" Davis does retire (and I'm not convinced he will) that will leave a hole at one of the OLB spots. The previously mentioned players are both former #1 choices. I don't know if Carolina can justify a 3rd #1 pick at LB based on the needs of our team. Then again like you mentioned in your post...Marty loves LB's.  If the next Von Miller or Kalil Mack is on the board when we pick (we need more pass rushers) or there's a LB capable of covering TE's ( a must in today's game) picking a LB may not be such a bad thing. 

Whoever we draft at #1 needs to be an impact player form day one, especially if its on the defensive side of the ball.
