You can build for the future while sacrificing success this year and still have the players on the team and coaches compete their hearts out but having a bad record and getting Lawrence. There’s always going to be some trade off with present and future success. Now would’ve been a good time to sacrifice present success for even more future success by getting a franchise QB. I’m cool with how we’ve gone about it though. Would’ve been nice to see Lawrence in a Panthers jersey, but there are other QB options. Mahomes was the 10th overall pick, and the Chiefs got him despite their original pick being 27 overall. You can find a franchise QB well after 1st overall, so I’m fine with not getting Lawrence despite the timing being almost perfect for it.
