Of course, everything has to be taken with a grain of salt when coming from Panther brass. But Hurney says in the article it is unlikely that they will be trading away another first round pick, since the draft is very deep and talented.
"I think we feel like there will be a very good football player sitting there at No. 48 for us. It just depends on how it falls." --Hurney
As far as taking a WR first, Hurney indicated we have needs at the skill positions on offense, but came nowhere close to saying our first pick would be a WR.
"But I don’t think when you go into a draft you go in with that mentality (of picking a predetermined position). Our mentality is to get the best football players we can get there. So you are always very careful not to reach to do that." --Hurney
