Panthers will draft Justin Herbert

Recommended Posts

I think Panthers will not wait until next year to draft the QB of the future, but will do that this year by drafting Herbert and let him learn behind Bridgewater for a year (or two).  The rest of the draft picks will be used for Defense.  

Marty has shown a lot of interest in Herbert.   Now he may be posturing for potential trade down opportunities to acquire more picks but I think the more likely scenario is that he gets drafted by the Panthers.

How would you feel about that if it happens?

That is what I thought but then we brought in TB and the other Temple guy. Now it's looking like defensive picks.

I don't think it's completely out of the question. We wouldn't have gone up there to check him out in person if we weren't at least considering it... or at least wanting to make other teams think we're considering it.

The team has no idea what they're doing, but if we used the current moves as an indicator this might be the most idiotic thing they could do. 

The defense is trash. 

The OL hasn't gotten an upgrade.

I'll grant it's possible.

I've seen both positive and negative projections regarding his NFL career. Me? I'm undecided.

In all honesty, I don’t follow CFB that closely and don’t know how I feel about this. If he looks like a sure-fire franchise QB (or as close as possible), then I hope the Panthers do it. We have seen this team with a true franchise QB in Cam and without one in a bunch of others, and know for sure that the Panthers are doomed in the latter case.

Based on his physical skills? Yeah.

Based on what he was able to actually show in that Oregon offense? Ugh.

If we draft him then I'll really be hoping that offense was holding him back and he's capable of a lot more than he was able to show.

The good thing about our current situation is that I think he's a guy who probably needs to sit and learn for a year if not two. I don't think it'll be pretty if he has to start from day one.

Dude has a crazy arm, but I’m just not feeling it. 2021 sounds like a better option with Brown, Simmons and Okudah on the board.

Great WR and OT draft? Take a QB that needs to sit for at least a year in the top 10 and go heavy on the D picks. Sounds like a Panther move.

I think it would require him somehow dodging the picks that come before us. I think he'll go well before then, but once Burrows and Tua are gone, perhaps teams will take a breath.

If he's sitting there at 7 when we pick, I'm not going to complain if we run to the podium with the pick. I also won't be surprised if someone offers us a ton of picks in trade for it.

Still, I think we're getting Brown at 7.

Cindy, Miami, and the Chargers are all set to draft a QB and develop them. I see no way Burrow or Tua reaches us, and unless the Chargers surprise everyone and go Love over Herbert, he will not be available at #7 which would be fine with me because Simmons or Okudah, or Brown would be a great pick.

His arm is huge, but his mechanics are bad. 

He seems like a smart guy though. 

Those bad (inconsistent) mechanics and the pressure of the nfl are not a good combo.
