It has been a real puzzling draft for us. But, every player we have been rumored to be on we ended up with, unquestionably to a fault with the trade up for Little.

We still sit with a huge hole at safety. I guess the answer is on the roster. :eyeroll:

Still the fourth Rd. A couple guys left. U never know what u going to get

All courtesy of Hurney 2.0.

(or 1.5, as I've been seeing around the board)

My own take: Hopeful on Burns, skeptical of Little, happy about Grier.

As with any draft, I'm hoping all turn out great.

Im hopeful of burns and little, kinda skeptical of Grier that Clausen pick and resulting disaster was all too real, but I understand why it had to be made.

Backup QB seems like a wasted pick, until you need him. You lose a G, you can get by with a backup.  Lose a S, you can be OK.  Lose your QB, and you are done. 

Grier is smart, which means he is probably coachable and a fast study.  We have weapons.  Get them the ball quickly.  At WVU, he threw deep passes effectively--he did not have the weapons for a short game--here he does.  If he can perfect the short passing game and throw the deep ball with accuracy, Oh my--he could be special. 

And maybe they think the offense has evolved so that you do not need a strong-armed, 250 lb running qb.  Maybe they know something about Cam's shoulder.  I dunno--but this does not mean Cam is done.  However, we cheered when he ran and took on DBs.  We applauded when he went airborn to cross the goal line.  You have to wonder how much damage has been done.  I hope not, but reality needs to seep into the conversation.  Most RBs peak at 28--for a reason.  They have taken a beating.  Has Cam become mortal?  If so, we have an answer---maybe not THE answer, but we have an answer.

And if you have not noticed, small QBs are now all the rage--Look at Russell Wilson's contract, Dak Prescott, both of the past 2 first overall draft picks.  Makes you wonder about the new NFL.

Sorry but this is a stupid pick unless they actually believe hes the heir apparent to Cam. Using a 3rd round pick on a backup when the team is gonna suck if Cam gets hurt regardless makes no sense. Still have holes all around the secondary

What about all the racists that show up due to Cam? The ones who only root for him because he’s black? The ones who would rather see the Panthers fail as long as a black man stays at QB?

 

 

Mods ya'll gotta clean this up. Wow. Just wow.

I'm not even gonna get mad at the pick. Grier sounds like a good guy, we drafted him I'll support him. I understand why people would feel we should have used resources elsewhere but this is our draft and Cam is human at the end of the day so I accept it.

But I want to be clear. I will be talking mad poo to huddlers here if they start turning on Grier if he doesn't look like a hall of famer in his first preseason snaps. We know that's going to happen.

If?  It’s not a question that he has issues.  The unknown of whether it will impact him in the short term and long term is why you get a guy like Grier to let Norv develop and have ready in case you need him.  Best case scenario is you don’t need him at all, worst case you have a capable guy to step in and help win a game.   

If Cam's shoulder has issues like the end of last season he's done, and a 3rd round QB isn't gonna help wins games especially in our system. Norv hasn't developed anybody in 15 years, he's a dinosaur. You don't use 3rd round picks on QB's when you have a young franchise QB period

Then i guess its not as stupid. I just feel as though if Cam actually gets hurt this year id rather get his replacement in the first round next year in one of the most stacked QB drafts in recent memory

I'm talking about those that were the most vocal in wanting to draft him. Those are the fans who will change up faster than anyone here. Most of those fans always have something negative to say about Cam.

I've supported Cam and other players tooth and nail. I even stood up for KB when he came into camp overweight. I only stopped defending him when he showed his ass after he left. I'll support Grier unless he gives me a reason not to. Making rookie mistakes isn't it. That's going to happen. That's all I'm saying.
