Opinion: This is the round Carolina trades back


Recommended Posts

So much of the focus with the Panthers trading back was centered around round 1 with potential QB hungry teams. Based on how long the team took to make their pick, they clearly entertained calls, but obviously didn't move back.

Fitterer said before the draft that they had 16 players on their board with round 1 grades. So I always assumed that if they did trade down in round 1, they were limited in how far they'd be willing to drop. Case and point with the Bears who traded up from 20. Yes, they gave up a future first round pick, BUT if the Panthers felt like they'd be drafting a player with round 2 value at 20 just for a future first, then essentially the future first doesn't give them an extra first, but purely evens out with what they already had.

Fitterer also said that the second round in this draft was deep. As a run of tackles or defensive players happens early in round 2, I could see a team wanting to jump up and Carolina be willing to oblige understanding that they'd have a good shot to get a round 2 grade from their board later in the second round while accumulating more picks.

Just a hunch - we shall see.

I've never seen such a retreat since the Italians in North Africa, 1942.

It's as if we're afraid to coach anyone that has any sort of a pedigree.

Maybe we're just being polite and trying to make friends with other teams?

After sitting down and looking at what they did, its fuging bizarre.  I mean really weird.
