By no means do I believe that WR is our biggest priority, but is definitely one that the front office would like to address. First off, don't read anything into Mary Hurney's comments last night. He is very good at posturing. They have not been pleased with many of their recent draft picks, but because he is the one making those decisions, he will talk them up. Here's what I mean:
- Jimmy Clausen will be the 3rd string QB and more than likely, not be a Panther next season.
- Gettis has more promise than either Lafell or Armanti. They will keep Pilares because they think he has what it takes. Look for them to bring in via trade, someone like Justin Gage of TN or Donnie Avery of STL. They feel it would give Cam better options to have Smitty, Legadu and either Gage or Avery as our top 3. Bring Armanti and Lafell along and if they don't bloom, they will move on. Essentially, Charly Martin, David Clowney, Wallace Wright and company will hope to catch on with another team.
- They will look to bring in at least one, but probably two DT's and possibly another DE. They are looking for at least two more offensive linemen as well. There will be quite a bit of change over and I wouldn't be surprised if we have at least 4 or 5 additions that will play a role this season.
