Here is a comment from an Aints fan about us after getting Marshall.
"Sorry, but if the Panthers are changing their opinions on who they should draft based on who they think we want to draft,
then Panthers fans should be very concerned about why their team has so little confidence in their own scouting department."
Actually, in the last weeks before the draft, Verge repeatedly said we wouldn't take a quarterback.
Likewise, Jeremy Fowler reported that despite the Panthers putting out their willingness to take a quarterback, most of the other teams in the league weren't buying it.
It was a smokescreen, and one that apparently worked more effectively on fans and some analysts than it did on other teams.
