With the offseason of cuts that we've had, would you be surprised to have a wild and wacky draft? Well, just for fun let's take a look at some crazy scenario's to hold us over until the draft.
First, DeAngelo Williams goes to the Patriots for a 1st this year and 3rd in 2011. Belicheck finally gets tired of not having a feature back. Second, since the Panthers decided to dangle Richard Marshall with a second round tender, the Steelers take advantage and the Panthers receive the Steelers second rounder. Pretty wild stuff. And just for fun, the Panthers pickup Laurence Maroney as soon as the Patriots cut him after acquiring Williams.
Now the question becomes....who do we draft?? I look forward to hearing many of the ideas. Here's just one scenario...
1st Round...#22 Jared Odrick-Penn State-DT
2nd Round...#48 Devin McCourty-Rutgers-CB
#53 Corey Wootton-Northwestern-DE
3rd Round...#78 Dakoda Watson-Florida State-OLB
4th Round...#109 Andre Roberts-WR-Citadel
6th Round...Armanti Edward-Appalachian St.-QB/WR
The second 6th rounder is assuming the Panthers are awarded a compensatory pick for losing Frank Omilaye or Geoff Hangartner from FA last season. Many will argue that a third wideout should be taken with one of those 2nd rounders, but I would argue that the defense will take precedence here in this draft. Charles Godfry will become our starter at corner to replace Marshall and Sherrod Martin will start at FS.
I'm a huge fan of DWills and Marshall, and I would hate to see them go. This is my first fan post here, so let me have it fellas!
