Very straightforward question: the more we lose, the more it's likely that we're going to be in a position to draft Tua if he falls to around the 10th pick because of his injuries. If the choice presents itself, would you rather want the new coach to start his career here with Cam and the question marks that surround him or would you rather pair Tua with the new coach and start from scratch like we did in 2011?

Depends on too many factors.

If Cam requires a new contract before stepping onto the field and Tua's medicals are the two unknowns at this point.

Answer those, along with who is going to be the next coach, and I can give my opinion.

Tua most likely won’t play in the NFL dude. 

That's an absurd statement. He's expected to make a full recovery. The only long-term concern with the hip was if any tissue died before they could go in and fix it. No tissue died, so he'll be 100% in the NFL.

Tua is made of glass.  The hip injiry is the one that has everyone concerned.

But the dude hasnt been healthy since his Freshman year.  Foot, ankle, etc injuries. 

I know its the SEC, but the players are Much bigger, faster, and stronger in the NFL.  And hit way harder.

I still don’t think he will get drafted. He was minutes away from dying by every news report. He’s glass dude, worse than Manzel glass. Only a desperate team would take that risk.

I’m not sure they can determine this soon whether or not he can or will develop osteonecrosis. An angiogram might lead you to believe that there’s no significant vascular injury to the femoral head, but I’m not sure it would be definitive.

Gimme a healthy Cam. Next question. 

This. Tua is injury prone and a little undersized. People need to look at his WR's YAC. He hits slants and the receivers do the rest of the work. Jeudy/Ruggs/Smith will all be taken in the first three rounds of the draft. Hell, Waddle might even get a look.

    • If they would have had the #5 pick then they could have had so many teams trying to trade up there for a QB. They'd be ahead of the Chargers and Dolphins who both need QB's. The Dolphins have 3 first round draft picks this year. That would have been such a good haul, potentially grabbing those picks had they won more games. They'd have to leapfrog several teams. Unfortunately at #7 both the chargers and the Dolphins don't need to move up. The only scenario i'd see is if they pick the QB's they need and the Dolphins pull the trigger on a OT to protect their QB, the Panthers would get the 18th and 26th, plus a lower round pick to move up to #7 if the draft board falls to where no OT was taken prior to the Panthers pick.      The thing is, that if the Panthers decide to stay with Cam, they need to protect his blind side and if the best OT is on the board, I don't think they would give up that pick for 2 first rounders. I wouldn't. Especially when it's the best tackle of the draft. I don't know.    IF they stay at the pick and Brown is available or Thomas...Take Thomas. 
    • Becton went 4th Ovr in Daniel jeremiahs last mock- I’m gonna go out on a limb and say he isn’t available in the third  
    • This has all been thoroughly debated examined and tested by people who are experts in the field. Noll is not one guy out on a limb. The bottom line is the consensus amongst respected experts is that sports stadiums do not provide the economic impact they claim to. https://research.stlouisfed.org/publications/page1-econ/2017-05-01/the-economics-of-subsidizing-sports-stadiums/ https://ritholtz.com/2017/07/economics-subsidizing-sports-stadiums/ That article was written by a member of the Federal Reserve. Surely he doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to money and economic impact. Here are a few quotes from that article I would particularly draw to your attention:  "When surveyed, 86 percent of economists agreed that “local and state governments in the U.S. should eliminate subsidies to professional sports franchises.” "In a 2017 poll, 83 percent of the economists surveyed agreed that “Providing state and local subsidies to build stadiums for professional sports teams is likely to cost the relevant taxpayers more than any local economic benefits that are generated.” It's not that stadiums don't bring in any money, or have any economic impact, no one is arguing that. But the reality is that the numbers show that impact is less than the cost of the subsidies provided, by large margins. This is why the vast majority of economists say they should be discontinued. Your math about tickets is irrelevant because all of that revenue goes into the private owners pockets. The point is that fewer games means fewer times people are coming to the area and having that impact you are talking about. That's why more games has more impact. Ticket prices and sales are irrelevant because we're talking about the impact on the economy, not actual ticket sales. It's not about how many tickets are bought at what prices, it's about how many times people stay in hotels, eat in restaurants, etc etc etc. And the people who measure these things and look at the data far more than you or I say it's not close, stadiums are a bad deal for taxpayers as an economic investment. Bottom line, if a cardiologist tells you you'd better stop eating fried foods or you're not likely to last another five years, do you do what the highly trained expert says, or do you sit there and argue with him about whether the burgers you cook on the grill should count or not?
