Panthers Tipped Off About Saints Wanting WR Terrance Marshall In The Draft

The Panthers and the Saints have shown interest in many of the same players this last year and a half since Joe Brady was hired as offensive coordinator. Brady previously served as an assistant for Sean Payton and runs a similar scheme, so it’s natural that their interests collide – and they certainly have.

Last year there was the whole Tommy Stevens saga. Additionally, the Panthers have brought in a number of former Saints players like Tommylee Lewis, Keith Kirkwood and Teddy Bridgewater. A couple months ago the Saints poached long-time Panthers fullback Alex Armah, signing him to a one-year deal.

The intrigue continued in the 2021 NFL draft, where apparently both teams had their eye on LSU wide receiver Terrace Marshall. According to Darin Gantt at the team website, the Panthers were tipped off via phone call that New Orleans was targetting Marshall with the No. 60 overall pick. The Panthers changed course and decided to snag Marshall one spot earlier.

“(BYU left tackle Brady Christensen) was probably going to be the guy at 59, and there was a deal cooking that could have moved them back on the clock within a few spots to take LSU wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr.. Marshall was quickly becoming one of those guys whose name was beginning to stick out on the board, with not much space above him, but a lot of space below at his position. He was becoming a value guy. Then someone got a call that the Saints were about to take Marshall 60th overall, and the Panthers shifted gears, taking Marshall in the 59th spot instead.”

- ADVERTISEMENT -That’s a nice victory for the Panthers over the Saints, who have won four straight and eight of the last nine meetings between these teams.

As for Marshall, we’re projecting he will be the WR3 on the roster behind D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson. During his college career, Marshall lined up both outside and in the slot. Tight end Dan Arnold should offer competition, but it’s not hard to imagine Marshall becoming Sam Darnold’s go-to option in the red zone once he’s up to speed.

Here are a few comments from an Aints fan about us after getting Marshall.

"Sorry, but if the Panthers are changing their opinions on who they should draft based on who they think we want to draft, 
then Panthers fans should be very concerned about why their team has so little confidence in their own scouting department."

"Coach is playing 4D chess with the panthers. He had the janitor leak the info to the window cleaning lady in Carolina, who then told the IT guy, 
that the Saints wanted Marshall, when, in fact, he knew that Carolina wanted Werner as the "new Luke Kuechly". 
The IT guy then changed the excel file with the Panthers draft board, moving Marshall, who was in a 3rd round bubble, to the 2nd round."

What??????? That doesn't make any sense. Someone from the Saints war room called us to tell tip us off on their pick? No that didn't happen. So who else outside the war room would know who they were taking? This story is VERY fishy.

It wasn't someone from the Saints war room..

Scouts, reporters and insiders extensively discuss with each other what's going on behind the scenes during the draft.

How do you think picks get tipped?
