offensive tackle seems like the safe pick. or maybe trade back.

Dream scenario: trade back to late in the 1st (steelers? they need a qb), collect a 2nd and 3rd pick in the process. Cash in on Trevor Penning/Abe Lucas, 2nd best available OL, and then spot fill. Ideally a qb (depends when the run on them happens but there could easily be most of them left by the 3rd imo). I don't really have a super firm decision on who I'd like best at QB. A lot of people like Malik Willis and I don't hate him but the games I saw weren't very great looking to me. Pickett I wouldn't hate but of the QBs I think he's least likely to make it deep into the 3rd -- some team with a relatively short term good qb will want him as a backup, the Broncos seem like a logical choice, or the Falcons).

Willis has the best chance of being a pro bowl-caliber QB, but he's also gonna need time and might be a huge bust. The rest of the QB class is a bunch of guys who might be backups at best. But there will be 2-3 first round QBs because a late first round QB gets an extra year of team control. I don't think anyone is gonna trade up with the Panthers for a QB. Also don't think the Panthers should trade back. Getting a top quality OT has to be the move here and while the OL class is deep, there are 3 top tier tackle prospects and the Panthers would be foolish to not take one. Also think if they traded back with the Steelers it would require more than that. That's a big drop and they'd probably need to include some future compensation as well to move up to #6.

Assuming the panthers were gonna go OT all along, the board couldn’t have fallen any better

Does this hurt the narrative that the Panthers refuse to sign or draft State players and that they love UNC and hate State?

Panthers have had 212 draft picks in franchise history, including the first round tonight. 4 of those 212 picks were used on UNC players. These are stupid narratives.

So what you're saying is they've drafted 4x as many UNC players

apparently 5 UNC players have either played 32 or started 16 games for us. 2 State players have done the same.

I would have been ok with a trade back to later in 1st Rd, but the board broke to where you wanted. A dominant Left Tackle that we haven't had since Jordan Gross. This isn't the year for QB's, this the 1997 class of backup QB's. Sucks no picks today (yet never know a trade could happen).

or next year's 3rd for Matt Corral

but i do like how Howell went from a top-5 or top-10 pick a year ago, to a 3rd day selection this year

Happy we got a QB that isn’t Sam Howell. Didn’t give up a ton to move up and take Corral, it’s hard not to like the pick. Maybe he’ll suck. But as a 3rd rounder it’s worth a shot.

I think what happened to Howell is similar to what happened to Ryan Finley, despite being completely different kinds of QB. They put up great numbers because of a wealth of NFL talent around them, which led to massive amounts of hype by journalists/people who write mock drafts for clicks. But NFL guys watch tape and see serious issues with their game (in Howell's case it's his sloooow release, lack of any touch on throws and penchant for taking sacks.)

Finley was drafted higher than Howell

Yeah I think Howell will last longer in the NFL though. Finley couldn't even get on a practice squad after 2 years.

Yeah different styles for sure. I’m not an expert to know about his release times and stuff. But Howell is a strong body with a strong arm. He’s 6’1”, so not a huge guy. But was always a load to tackle and he’s got some mobility. Howell seems to have some skills that would lend themselves to a longer career than Finley
