Are You Really Against Fields or Lance if they fall to #8...

Maybe the Panthers know he's not going to be there at #8, so why bother?  According to you he's such a risk, but yet he could very possibly go ahead of Fields at #4. 

I like lance.  I think he will be there at 8.  However he is a long long way from being a nfl starter.  That's not really debatable.  I also think rhule and Co either didn't like what they saw or didn't want a huge project at pick 8.  Maybe both.   

 

From what I heard and read this past week it sounds like fields is going to be dropping.  Lots of noise about his throwing motion and slow going through progressions.   Listen to Chris simms break him down on the ringer podcast

They went to Zach Wilson's.

That wasn't opening day of offseason training either.  Again, they were there for the first one, that should be enough.  Not everyone had a second Pro Day, actually, nearly all prospects don't.

If they were interested they would have used that opportunity.  Don't kid yourself

And there's no guarantee that they liked what they saw at that first one either, especially given that more than one source has indicated the Panthers aren't high on Lance.

It's a fact that nobody from the Panthers are at his 2nd pro day.  That's telling 

Or they are trying to create the illusion that they aren’t interested so other teams might not feel the need to jump ahead of us in the draft.

this time of year you really don’t know for sure

I get that everybody thinks everything is a smokescreen, but again that doesn't happen nearly as much as fans think it does.

Happened with Russel Wilson...

Seriosely though, if I had to bet I would agree with you that we probably aren’t interested, but to make absolute statements is asinine at this time of year.

That's fine if we pass on Fields and/or Lance as long as we get the capital for passing.  Someone will jump up.  Taking a non-QB position at #8 with one or both still on the board and not moving back makes zero sense.  Actually, it's utterly idiotic.

Do you think going to Fields second Pro Day was legit interest or just to have other teams think we  could take him for trade potential?

I know a lot of fans assume that if they believe a certain player is good or bad, the team must feel the same, but as often as not what the team thinks of certain players doesn't align with what fans think.

We're not going to spend the number eight pick on a player just so we can trade him later. When you're a rebuilding team with a top ten pick in the draft. You're going to take somebody that can contribute right now.

As to Fields, don't know. Could be genuine interest. Could be due diligence.

I mean to help with a trade down. If a team thinks we might pick him they may be more tempted to trade up for him. I think there is interest there. However it looks like they are really trying to “sell” we still might take a QB in this draft. Them not going to Lance’s makes me think the interest is real.

They might not be doing that great a job of selling.

    • So, I guess we throw Brady Christensen into the practice squad or are we just cutting him?  Did I miss something that the great minds at CBS caught?
    • This is the " Fan Nation"  projection for the panthers 2021 starting offensive line. https://www.si.com/nfl/panthers/gm-report/projecting-the-panthers-starting-offensive-line-for-2021   INSIDE THE DEN+NEWSGM REPORTGAME DAYSI.COM   A look at who might make up the starting combination for Carolina up front this season.     Carolina had one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL in 2020 and made several roster moves this offseason in hopes of improving the overall play of the unit. There are still question marks at several spots on the line and whether or not improvement takes place is to be seen.   So without further adieu, here's a look at what the starting offensive line could look like in 2021. Left Tackle - Cameron Erving Russell Okung remains a free agent and does not appear to be re-signing with Carolina meaning that the Panthers will have their 8th different starting left tackle in as many years when this season begins. I'm not putting Erving in the starting role because I believe in him but more so because he will be the best equipped to win the job out of training camp. However, I do expect rookie Brady Christensen to take over the starting job at some point throughout the regular season.  Backup: Brady Christensen Left Guard - Pat Elflein Elflein is very capable of being a legitimate starter up front but does need to clean up some areas of his game, including pass protection. After a strong rookie season in 2017 lining up at center, he took quite a step back in 2018, which forced the Vikings to move him over to guard. In 2019, Elflein allowed eight sacks and committed eight penalties - certainly numbers that need to trim down. Backup: Deonte Brown Center - Matt Paradis Paradis was a little more consistent in 2021 but still hasn't produced anywhere near the way he did with the Denver Broncos. Then again, he's really the only option at center if you take out former undrafted free agent Sam Tecklenburg. I expect Pat Elflein to serve as the backup since he started there for Minnesota at the beginning of his career. Backup: Pat Elflein Right Guard - John Miller He may not have had the type of year he or the Panthers would have liked to of had but there's potential there for Miller to develop into a quality starter. Now that Miller has a full year under his belt in this offense and a year working with offensive line coach Pat Meyer, I expect him to take a big leap.  Backup: Dennis Daley or David Moore Right Tackle - Taylor Moton If there is one place on the offensive line the Panthers don't have to worry about, it's at right tackle with Taylor Moton. He will be playing under the franchise tag in 2021 but will almost certainly be getting a long-term deal worked out with the team soon. Not only is right tackle in a good spot because of Moton but also because of Trent Scott's ability to step in and be productive if called into action. Backup: Trent Scott
