We don't know who we are drafting yet?

Lol. You just don’t get it. Technically speaking you can never know before hand, blah dee blah. We all talked about Marty was dead set on Burns, Little and Grier. Guess what we got all three, two of whom we reached way up to ensure we got them. Is there some sort of connection you just can’t see? Oh I know, someone else could possibly have drafted them so there’s no way to know, and yet we did. Where were you the past two drafts? Nice of you to put a bet when teams can’t have visits and pro days were cancelled, go out on a limb more and you might get off the ground.

I've been here since the official board was on panthers.com....  So I've been here for every draft even the expansion draft in 95..  The connection is guessing based on who the team shows intrest in.. That's not knowing who they are going to pick.. 

Burns was projected to be a top 10 pick.. He fell to us.. So how did you know we were going to get him?? That's right you like everybody here didn't.. Please stop acting like Nastradumbass..

If you knew.. Post your mock last year 4 weeks before the draft saying we were getting Burns, little and Grier. 

Don't worry I'll wait..

Looking for my posts now? It’s a fact that we all knew in here who our favorites were in the 1st with Moore, CMC and Burns and last year with Little, Grier and to a lesser degree Miller. This year will be tougher because there are no visits or workouts and many pro days were cancelled. That’s doesn’t negate the fact that Marty has absolutely telegraphed many of his early picks.

Marty didn't pick CMC. Come on! 

Tell us who Gettleman telegraphed too.

We knew it would be Shaq and Vernon and CMC as much as we knew it would be Moore or Burns

Oh really? Duh. I added CMC to show that it’s not just Marty, but it’s crazy that people want to act like we didn’t know who Marty was going after hard last year. People were trying to make it seem like it’s impossible to know who we were going to pick unless we have the #1 overall pick (hopefully next year).

Problem with Marty is that it went against the strength of the draft and we traded away a valuable pick and used another on a trash QB.

Lol. You really don’t get this concept do you. Of course you can’t “know” they will be the pick but that doesn’t mean there aren’t clear favorites that are well known. It’s really funny that you say Burns was projected to be a top 10 pick and yet he went 16 and then you get mad at people saying he will be our pick and he was.

It’s not my fault that you have been on this board so much and don’t recall how Grier, Burns and Little were discussed as nauseam on here. No one was surprised when we reached and got Little and Grier.

Also, you don’t have to always be an asshole. Maybe that’s just you, I guess I don’t really care so you be you. The last thing I’m going to waste my time on is digging through one year old posts. How about this, prove me wrong.

Don't worry I’ll wait...

Brown, Okudah, Simmons, or Kinlaw depending on who is available when we pick. We have an idea now just like every year. Things could still happen like a trade up/down or all 4 could be gone. Brown makes the most sense based on need and chance he will be there.

I will tell you one Hurney is banging the door for hard is Dugger. He personally visited him 1 on 1 and we met w him via computer conference. Hurney is obsessed with his local small school players. I can promise you he will be banging the door for him round 2. Jonathan Jones also confirmed that we are "super interested." This has Hurney written all over it.

Hurney definitely seems to fall in love with "his guys", which wouldn't be so bad if we were patient and didn't overdraft them.

Speaking of which there are two aspects to drafting that make you successful.  Being able to identify talent (Duh) but also being able to identify what other teams are going to do.  That allows you to maximize your value out of the draft by not over drafting.

Dugger is a poor man’s Isiah Simmons. Slightly smaller but is a super athletic “tweener” that could play FS or LB. I don’t think he would be a terrible pick. Shaq and him would make our defense interesting. I see him ranked 65 in the top 100. Our 2nd round pick would be bit of a reach, but a trade down or 3rd and I would be ok with him...

Whole new staff and scouting department. The flow of information isn't what it used to be yet.

They have an idea of who to take, but that could change wildly this year given who is or isn't on the board. Trade down seems like a possibility.

And most teams do, but all it takes is one team to do something different and that can have a trickle down effect throughout the round.  That is why I find it is amusing when people make fun of the "experts" missing on mock drafts.  All you should really be looking at is the range they expect certain players to go.

Are you sure we have a new scouting department? I saw Jeff M. and all the same scouts in the first combine video
