What are we doing in the draft?

Normally I’d agree with you 99.99% of the time but I think Parsons is that special case. 

Pete Carroll thought that about Aaron Curry when he drafted him #4 overall too. I think the group think on Curry that year was "safest player on the draft".

Nah man you said multiple scouts had him as a day 2 pick.  Normally how this works is when you proclaim something like that you have to show your work.  Show me where multiple scouts had him round 2 preseason.

Not really.

just like Joe Burrow last year.    Though his stock jumped from his play on the field his senior year.  You had to dig to find where people had him a lower grade going into the year,  due to all the most recent articles.

So you cannot link one article or report where he is a day 2 pick.  Got it.  I always love the unsubstantiated claims on this board.

I don’t foresee Fitt and Rhule taking a defensive player in the first round after spending all picks on defense in 2020. Secondly, like others have mentioned, Parsons stock is going down. From a positional value standpoint and the fact that we now have Shaq, Perryman, and Riddick, he doesn’t really fit. 

"IF" we are to continue our streak with going defense and taking into consideration what I think our scheme might be. If we traded down... I'd think we were targeting:

Trevon Moehrig

Jaelan Phillips 

Caleb Farley 

All those fit what we do and the traits we seem to look for. 

If we had to go CB, I'd rather have Horn/Farley over Surtain.

Is it just me or were other people not overly impressed with Slater in this game. I know ll the scouts raved about this game but he looked terrible in the run game and gave up some pressures/had balls batted down.

Look at what the tackles did for the Browns and Bucs last year. Sign me up for that oline  improvement 

Agreed, but they both already had QBs.

Most scouts point to that game as his highlight reel, so yeah you go for it

This clip doesnt have the 4th quarter so you have to watch the whole game film

Chase Young didnt have any qb pressures when lined against Slater.  And you just said there were numerous

    • In the last 60 days how many total hours do you figure you've spent on this website promoting Sam's cause?
    • ...Interesting article. It almost sounds like there is a high level plan that Tepper and the city share for that area. Obviously, who pays for what will be the big fight. https://www.wbtv.com/2021/07/22/records-show-charlotte-lacks-money-new-stadium/ ——————— A WBTV Investigation shows the Queen City’s capacity to contribute to stadium projects is much lower than what’s recently been agreed upon in other NFL cities. Financial records shared by city staffers during a Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority board meeting show that the capacity to take on debt for major stadium construction is somewhat limited by other projects the city has already financed. ———————— “I don’t feel that the capacity is there at the moment in the existing tax structure,” District 7 Councilman Ed Driggs told WBTV Councilman and financial institution veteran Ed Driggs told WBTV he has doubts about the cities pot of money to pay for the deal. “Particularly because we have a pipeline of capital projects that will probably soak up a lot of that of existing capacity,” Driggs said. In addition to future potential projects like Discovery Place and Blumenthal Performing Arts, the city is already committed to $174 million in debt in the Convention Center fund, including more than $100 million for recent convention center upgrades. ———————- Economist Andrew Zimbalist told WBTV that deals between franchise owners and cities that look beyond a specific dollar contribution have proven more fruitful for taxpayers. “Cities are finding it more and more difficult to justify the expenditures as the prices go up in urban areas,” Zimbalist said. “What we’ll do is we’ll give you the land for the stadium. Not only that, but we’ll give you some acres around it for parking lots and we’ll give you some more acres for commercial and residential development and then you can make your money off of those other things that will help pay back.”   That’s not to dissimilar from the plan currently unfolding between Charlotte and Tepper. The City has already reached an agreement with Tepper and a developer for new soccer fields, residential units and commercial enterprises at Eastland. The city is also still negotiating with Tepper around a mixed-use/entertainment district in the area near Bank of America Stadium and the Charlotte Pipe and Foundry property, which could be crucial to the development of a future stadium. Rezoning Pipe and Foundry and using a mixed-use/entertainment district to link it with the Gateway District, home of a future transit center for Amtrak could be crucial to plans moving forward. ———————- “More likely than not, at the end of the day, for the vast majority of these deals, they should not be looked upon as a promoter for the economy,” Zimbalist said. “They’re not going to raise overall employment. They’re not going to raise per capita income, and what you want to do as a city if you want to have a sports team, whether it’s MLS, NFL or NBA or whatever it might be, try to make a deal that is financially neutral.”
    • True that but even if you trade it for later capital, better to get a return on investment.
