the closest thing i've read to the utter disappointment that i feel, was husker saying " he was bummed " it took 2 hours for the blood to drain out of my face, that's how pissed i was, and in all honesty i don't know why, i knew it was going to happen i stated in an earlier post that Hurney won't try to get another DT or DE until it becomes painfully obivious that Edwards,Fua,Mcclain and Hardy have failed to be the answer,so you guys hoping for Devon Still or one of the other DT's or DE's don't hold your breath, cause it ain't happening. yeah i'm done!
Don't be disappointed bro!  This guy is one of the better LBs to come out of the draft in a very long time.  A draft grade of 91, and his highlights show that he absolutely flies to the football!  Our LB corp is solidified even if Davis, which you have to admit is a long shot, doesn't make it back from the ACL injuries.  There is plenty of talent available for the later rounds, and I think we are in for a very good draft.  IMO our defensive front will be just fine this year, and I still think we will add a young guy to the mix with a mid round pick.  We will be fine, like I said earlier any draft pick is just an addition to an already talented football team.  Stay positive my friend...lol!

Re: Draft Discussion Thread

I have to admit I wasn't a bit surprised we dafted Kuechly. The guy has tremendous football knowledge and a nose for the ball. He'll easily fill the Will LB position if TD tears another ACL or just doesn't show the explosiveness we're used to seeing. He's a massive guy who can drop into coverage against the talented TEs we have in our division. I can't wait to see him put licks on Graham, Gonzo, and Winslow.

I have no clue where we'll go with tonight's selection. If we have Hill or Randle fall to us, I think we'll be hard pressed not to draft one of them, but we may still be looking for a bookend CB for Gamble. We'll see at 7:30...

Re: Draft Discussion Thread

14 hrs later I gotta say I have warmed up to the pick...and must admit to the fact that I was hoping there would be a LB need for the Panthers in the 2nd rd...Really think L David of N is going to be good, but profess a N player bias...

Kuechly covers alot of need and potential need for the club...who knows about TD...and who really knows about Beason (they say any Achilles injury a guy typeically losses 10% of his speed---he may be back but may not be back as the old Beason)

CB-WR-OG-DT...who evey they get with #40...should be a quality player who can play some downs in 2012!

Yeah, people talked about there being a lot of meat in the draft after the first high profile pics. We grabbed a great player! And I am sure we will grab a few more before the end of round 7. Simple fact is, our team is better with this pick. To me that makes it a solid pick...

Amini Silatolu...wow.  Now this pick makes no sense to me at all.  Too much talent was just sitting there to use the pick on this guy. 

Unbelievable.

Jonathan Martin would have been the much better option if we were going that route...lol...the Dolphins got him as I was typing this!

Re: Draft Discussion Thread

some mock ftom somewhere had a team in front of the panthers raking this guy so I had a mild thought he may be the choice. am sure surprise though...I thought CB WR or DT would be the priority over a OG!
