The Panthers will select one of these four prospects in round one of the NFL Draft.


Recommended Posts

I am a bit surprised Germaine  Ifedi was not on the list--I think I would remove the TE and insert the LT candidate. 

Hunter Henry is nice and I would like him in the second, but we have not really visited with him (to the best of my knowledge-don't we always bring in the first rounder at some point?)

I'm saying what I think- hence the whole fuging point of a message board 

Isn't that what the people disagreeing with you are doing as well?

Meh, I'm ready for the draft, all this pecker measuring over pet prospects has been old.

I'm honestly not sure how high on Corey Coleman.  Gettleman seems to be all about route running when it comes to WRs and Baylor's offense features very few routes.  That's not to say he can't run them, it's just that he hasn't been able to really demonstrate it.

That has been my one red flag on the Hunter Henry pick as well, however they may have him in between now and the draft. I think we met with Shaq really late last yr.

First Round: Ryan Kelly, Derrick Henry... or receiver( I know... I know)..draft is so deep that receiver may be BPA. I can see a run after the 20th pick.

Coleman, Dotson, Fuller, Tredwell, hell Gman had Funchess at a first round talent ...I could also see where he might give a first round grade to Boyd, Thomas and/or Shepard. If either Dodd or Lawson fall...all bets are off

Second: ... Trade up for Cravens..or Karl Joseph

Fourth: Lineman

Roster spots are at a premium.

I didn't call anyone out for having one- I think my message got lost in translation. I'm just saying it's dumb to say, "Wow you're just a joe schmoe what does your opinion matter?"

Furthermore, I totally understand why people are intrigued by Henry. He's a Heisman winner and an absolute mammoth of a human being. I'm fine with people liking him.

Out here on Seattle radio, they're talking up Henry at 26.  They, much like us, have several more important needs (OL, LB, DE) but a Marshawn Lynch replacement that runs as forceful and nasty as Lynch makes a lot of sense.  He was in town last week visiting, for whatever thats worth.  

John Schneider is one of the best in the bizz (along with DG), so Henry at the end of the first isn't such a crazy thought.  

Not that I needed a Seahawks GM to let me know this, but just to put to bed that Henry is only a 2nd round pick is a silly thought.  If DG thinks that Henry fits what the Panthers want to do on offense, and others on the board (Lawson, Robinson, etc.) are not there, Henry would be a good pick for us. 

There's always an argument to be made against a player in the draft (Star had health concerns, KB had drops, Shaq was a tweener).  I can argue why not to take most players you toss out there at 30, but I'd rather focus on how they fit with us.  A guy like Henry is a rare once-in-a-blue moon RB.  He could be a classic 'Bama back that flames out in the NFL with only a handful of good plays, or he could be an Eric Dickerson/Marshawn Lynch kind of matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. 

Nobody knows, but I trust our front office to make the right call.  

Funny thing is..... all of this Henry debate could be for naught 10 days from now when we step to the podium and draft ......

    • I know its David Newton, but.... It looks like Darnold is vaccinated, assuming he's following the rules.  
    • I don't think he really needs cash flow from the team. The investment has been well worth it based on the appreciation of the franchise. He'll make out like a bandit when he gets rid of the team. I somewhat doubt he will be interested in being a forever owner. Although he has been involved at some level in NBA basketball for most of his life, at this point.
    • Absolutely.  Bought the boat cheap and then caught the tide that lifted all boats...his boat has definitely increased in value.   On paper, yes.  From a cash flow perspective, definitely not.  For him the Bobcats have been the same as a house in a Dilworth.  A lot of folks bought houses right in Dilworth...and while the area has exploded and home values have skyrocketed, the longer-term homeowners have only written checks to maintain the home, and pay the mortgage, etc... ...until they sell their gains are only on paper.  MJ first invested 15 years ago and the team has been a consistent money-loser over the course over that time-frame.  He may have actually been able to deposit some cash in his personal account with the partial sale of the team to the 2 NYC hedgies but that's the only material cash in-flows he's seen since 2006.
