Like I said in another thread, if we take a TE at 8, I'm going to need to take a break.

I wouldn't really call Pitts a TE.    I'd ball him a big ass WR you ask to block sometimes.

OK.

I don't want a big bodied WR that you ask to block sometimes as the number 8 selection in the draft.

How many touches per game do you think we could get him to?  6?

Nah, give me a T that plays, and impacts every single offensive snap.

He runs a 4.4 and has the biggest wingspan we have seen in decades.  I'd say he would impact every snap.  Who is going to cover that if he is lined up at the TE spot?

I'm not here to play 20 questions with you.

Just telling you that I want no part of a TE in the top ten...of pretty much any draft...until we are "a piece away", and we ain't that.  We have a lot of holes, and some of those holes are at much more important than TE....to ME.

You can want whomever you like, end of the day, Robby, CMC, and DJ gotta get theirs, and I prefer to keep the QB upright more so than give him another weapon.

generally I would agree.  

but Pitts is just too freaky IMO to pass on him for some guy that fits a need.  Pitts is one of the top 3 players in this draft.   And isn't your standard first round TE prospect.

What if Robby or DJ are not in the long term plans and they see Pitts as a guy that will be? Pitts and CMC could be a very versatile and lethal duo for years.🤷‍♂️

Sewell. 

I can’t count the times since Gross retired that I’ve said “we need to address the line.” 
 

I really like the QBs. But I also think that Mond or even Jamie Newman could have very good careers and probably don’t cost a top 10 pick. Apart from Lawrence I don’t see any of them as sure things. Especially without addressing obvious holes.

So my ideal draft would be: 

1st - Sewell

2nd - Mond

3rd - Grant

I see "this guy is such a physically insane matchup nightmare that whichever team drafts him is guaranteed a Super Bowl" players on pretty much an annual basis.

Some years later I see those same guys retire with no rings.

Yeah I’ve thought about that too. I assume we keep DJ but even if we plan on keeping him...without Samuel if DJ gets hurt we get pretty thin as far as receiving options. 
 

But there is just such a huge talent gap imo between the top OTs and 2nd round compared to the top WRs and guys found on day 2.

My preferred option is OT at 8. As others have said, the Panthers have thrown whatever at the Oline for years without putting top talent into it and it is past time they addressed that issue. That said, I'll be happy with Pitts or Chase at 8 if both Sewell and Slater are gone.
