The value at Free Safety is in the 2nd round..

Recommended Posts

No matter what we go in the 1st round edge rusher or OT .. Marty better plan to get his starting free safety in the 2nd round.. That's where the run is going to come from.  Between Savage, Abram, Nasir, Thornhill, Thompson and Rapp.. You can get a starter and not pray they fall to the 3rd round .. Or get a teir lower than them and pray he beats out the crap on the roster.. With the word of Galuden switch .. I can't see how they aren't targeting the top FS talent in this draft...

Agreed. I'm not sure there will be a safety taken in the 1st but there will probably be a bunch go in the 2nd and 3rd. There will be some good options available at #47. There may or may not be at #77.

Is Rapp still a second round prospect after his showing? Better yet is he even a option for our team? I dont think we can afford another slow guy back there with rapp being most likely to play SS or in the box. I think that has Reid all over it, we need a rangey Centerfielder type ball hawk. savage,Nasir, Thornhill are My top choices here and I agree it almost has to be safety here.

Been saying this.  With the QBs and edge rusher in the 1st.  And even a potential to have 3+ WRs in the 1st which is more than normal.  

Combined with this years Elite Safety FA class where many teams with glaring holes there filled them (and remember teams usually use FA to set up their draft)

There is going to be some really really good FS guys for us in the 2nd

I was talking to another Huddler about this over the weekend, with Reids extension IMO Rapps skill set should be off our broad. 

I know we had him in a few days ago but a Rapp/Reid safety tandem is gonna get abused in the passing game. 

I think the safety pick kinda has to be Savage/Thornhill since Adderley will be gone

A edge rusher like Sweat or Burns in the 1st

And

Savage, Adderly, or Thornhill in the 2nd

 

Our defense will be back on track and cooking.  Back to what we were when we won the division 3 consecutive seasons

Panthers very easily could walk away with this draft with:

1- Dillard/Williams 

2- Winnovich

3- Savage

3- Nate Davis 

LT, Edge, FS, OG check

Seems it depends on who is there and their ultimate value.  With quarterback and FS both projected as high as our second pick I suspect if both guys we want are there we will go QB first if there are questions about Cam. If we go FS it should suggest backup QB isn't a huge need.

No, drafting Grier with one of our top 100 picks is obviously more important :eyeroll:

I’ll believe it when I see it...I listened to Smiths interview all he said was we were taking a Qb...people trying to predict how high is pure speculation. It’d seem to me that we’ve met with several guys in the Grier/northwestern/auburn QBs tier so they don’t have to reach on one. We’ve met with like every 2nd rd safety and oline/dline prospect ha so that’s an indicator to me of where they want to go

Is Will Grier a truly better immediate option than Kyle Allen?

im really having trouble with that.
