Panthers trade down again again again

This is getting ridiculous.😂😂😂

See y'all in the 2022 Draft, because apparently we aren't picking in this one.😂

But, I will say, again, that last night Rhule said their guys have said a 3rd rounder this year is the equivalent to a 2nd next year, and I'm assuming they've applied that logic for each round, with the implication being this draft is deeper and has more value.

Also, they Fitt said they felt comfortable trading down bc they know there is more value grouping in the areas they're trading to versus where they were originally picking.

But this is crazy.

Not how it works. It isn’t about the depth of the class. It’s a calculation of present value v. future value. That’s all.

Between Darnold, Horn, Marshall, Christensen, and Tremble, this has already exceeded Hurney drafts and is solid in its own rite.


As someone else mentioned, the hit rate from Round 4 on is approximately the same.

Unless their is a player they truly love, it's not a bad strategy to just load on picks and see which ones rise to the top, and cut bait or practice squad the others worth trying to develop

Not only have they not yet played, they don’t even have a jersey yet sans Darnold. Every one of these guys could be good or this could be the worst draft in franchise history. There is no way to tell yet.

Anyone picked will be super SUPER cheap for a few years, and out of the ones picked, a gem or two would be awesome but all busts would be written off as expected.

Maybe genius?

If they’re all busts, we gave up good picks for a bunch of glorified UDFAs.

who cares?...at this point its a crap shoot....bundle them all & get our #2 for next year back

Or instead of doing something bad like that, keep maintaining a surplus year over year so that you have more control over your board and the draft in general.

It doesn’t have to be hard. Teams like New England and Baltimore have been doing this for 15 years. Enjoy having a GM with a clue for once.

    • I came hear talking football and the BS came to me.  So I tossed it back to those weaklings that started it with me.  Take a look at my first posts.  All football, then look at the losers who started talking trash to me and insulting me.  I've had some good conversations with other knowledgeable fans on this board and it was great takes exchanged.  So why don't you address those one or two losers on this board.  If not that means you are just like them.  Thank God for the educated posters on this board. 
    • He spent 8 full days MIA during training camp, to the point where Urdoofus had to vist him at his home and beg him to report. Had other injuries and rehab form last season. The big reason is did not want to play jax ball, so that may mean he did not workout like he needed too. I know the staff for some odd reason put a bike near the goal post, all by its lonesome....and made him ride it there in front of the whole team. I dont have all the facts, but willing to bet he missing/didnt care about lifting or cardio. Injuries, rehab, and missing lifts/cardio(my guess) adds up to not NFL week 4 shape.  But if injuries hit again, it may force them to active him. Which bring me to the next quote Panthers did not have a choice. This year they do; 6 CBs currently on the roster, most game days only 4 are active. CJ is brand new and may not be in game shape. They do not have to play him, given the other 5 CBs. Zero reason is completely wrong, you or I have no idea his level of cardio or his current mental lay-out form learning a whole new D/language. moving/family/injury/kids etc. Plenty suggest hes going to miss this game, maybe more. But you people can go ahead and pencil(for sure use this) him in the line-up, I know better. Irsamrt 
    • Interestingly enough, my wife's family is always hitting her up for money, and they live half a world away.  If that is the issue, I am not sure moving will really fix it.  Still got to learn to say no.
