Panthers likely trading back in the first

Again, here in your second paragraph you're framing your opinion as fact. I'm telling you what's been reported.

Could the story change? Sure, but it also might not.

I'm saying not everything gets reported. The conversation almost certainly never went anywhere. They probably said #2 was straight up off the table. But there's zero chance we didn't at least ask in passing about it. There's zero reason not to. The worst that can happen is they say no. Okay, cool. So now we're still in the same spot we were in before.

Sewell is a cornerstone player and the Panthers should wait and see if be slips. If he goes to Cincy at 5 they should trade back bc they can get a good tackle in the early teens (which may be Slater himself) plus more chances to draft good players.

I think lots of teams want to trade back, but when Carolina is sitting there looking at a tackle or receiver they like, I don't think they will risk losing it. Stay at 8 and take the best player (coughSewellcough)

I will never understand you guys not wanting to add weapons in this age of the NFL where offense and teams with multiple weapons that are hard to stop win out over others. Pass on Chase if he's the one left at 8? Are you mad?

It's short sigthed at best. Plus Chase gives you a premier player at a valuable position on a rookie contract so you can let Robby go in Free Agency if he balls out and pay DJ Moore.

There is a great chance one of Robby or DJ are not on the team after next year. We need weapons as much as we need a tackle or cornerback.

Recievers are easy to find.

 

Franchise LTs are not.

Even if Chase doesn't fall, WR should be on the radar. This is a good slot WR/CB draft and the Panthers need both

Sewell is the ideal fit, bc he's a premier player at a position you need, but Cincinnati is a major hurdle and I still think it's likely he goes there so it helps to plan if he isn't there

Feels a little early for Darrisaw but I can understand the argument...

I've never liked the it's too early to take player X argument. If he's the guy the team wants, take him regardless of what others think. This is especially true if you really fear he won't be there if you trade back.

You’ll like it until Lance and Fields set the league on fire and we’re stuck with whatever bum we try to replace Darnold with. 

You're one of the most negative people I've seen post here. You have no idea what the future holds and are complaining about it. It's football, not life or death.

Depends on the dime and nickels. Some are worth a lot more than others.

Did they choose this path or was it actually forced on them? The Watson trade opportunity fell apart with the lawsuits. We swung and missed on Stafford. We reportedly at least had a conversation with SF about #3. Personally I think it's likely that we at least casually asked the Jets about #2 until they chuckled and suggested we talk about Darnold instead.

The Teddy bridge was burned with all the shade we threw his way. Rolling with Teddy wasn't an option. It would've sent an awful message to the locker room. At best, Darnold was our #4 option this off-season behind Watson, Stafford, and trading up in the draft. Put the pieces together and it is what it is. The best bad option available.

Watson was never a real option. The Texans never stated they were willing to trade him. Also, did you mean SF? Because it makes no sense to contact them to trade the pick they just gave up 3 first rounders for.

This team was desperate to move on from Teddy which I think we can all agree on. We were all in on Watson, tried for Stafford, and reached out for Russ (just a guess here). After all of this we were hesitant about giving up a future 2nd for Darnold. From the outside I don’t see that as being sure or incredibly high on him. I know they are going to make it seem like he is there guy because that’s smart on the team’s part. I think it was a little desperation after striking out on a few different option. Just my opinion though...

The Panthers did really goof on the Teddy situation. If they were all in on someone that was not on the trade market or a free agent, that shows very poor judgement by the braintrust. And if it is true, it could mean the future will not be bright for the Panthers.

Trading back more than a spot of two shows we've got another GM with no common sense, one player with special talent it is worth more than two players with good talent.

We had the eighth pick last year and Chinn was at least as good as Brown. Probably better. And neither was good enough to elevate the defense from dreadful to good. This roster needs a lot of talent. Nobody at 8 is going to be good enough to move the needle on their own. Assuming that the QBs, Pitts, and Sewell are gone, trading down is the best option.
