Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Its way too early to be thinking about this.

I'm sure the line of scrimmage will be a major focal point of our off season. We have been so-so at the point of attack all year long.

I would think both offensive tackle positions need to be looked into, as well as linebacker and defensive line depth.

We've covered this ground - it's never too early, that's what these forums are about...

That's what being a fan is all about; you can look past games, to next years draft as early as you want, you could start contemplating freshmen college players if you really want.

It's not our job to take the planning serious, that's what they pay the players/staff millions for

I'm still seeing O-Line/Safety as our main priorities right now

Yeah, I know Armstead had a bad opening game, but he'll get some more games under his belt and then Payton & Company will have a better assessment going into the draft as to what needs they may have on the outside of the line...

There were a few plays I felt he easily handle the comp and then of course the inexperience would show on plays where Brees held the ball a little longer and Armstead got out maneuvered by the more experienced defensive end...

We've reached a detente here at Black & Gold of two camps over Harper, who's probably the most polarizing player among fans here...

But it's obvious that with the coverage breakdown by Harper on two consecutive plays on the last series, book was made to clearly target him...

Even worse was the display of missed tackles by Jenkins, especially on the second Panthers' touchdown pass, that a complimentary safety to Vacarro is really needed as well...

Have heard critics of talking about the draft during the season as a failure as a fan - my response is that always trying to discuss ways for a team to improve is no better way to demonstrate passion for a team...

Also a playmaking LB who can cover is really needed. Love Kyle Van Noy.

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Playmaker on defense. OLB stands out. A legit NFL center. Harper gone at safety is addition by subtraction. I would add a complete TE to the mix as well. Graham is a WR in a TE's body.

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

I have not hid the fact that I'm a pretty big Armstead fan, but I don't think he had a bad opening game all things considered. He got beat badly 2 or 3 times, but that is to be expected from a rookie LT making his first start. Especially when said rookie LT is facing Greg Hardy. (who is a premier pass-rusher in this league)

Aside from those 2 or 3 mishaps, he played really well. He should only get better, too. I guess I would not be mad if we went LT in the first, but I think we would also be just fine if we stuck with Armstead.

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Wish we could CLONE Kiko Alsonso AND Luke Kuechly in our new 34 defense we've yet to fully implement because Curtis Lofton is soooo slow that he makes even Harper look like a defensive back until a Tackle Eligible runs past him...
