The Peat pick was a shocker. I really thought they were going to get Dupree.

I do understand why they made it, but I figured it was more of a bpa pick. He's a pure tackle, strief has played guard early on but mainly tackle, and armstead is very athletic so he can be cross trained. I wonder if that's what the idea is

Not sure yet... still kinda' processing it.

Yeah, I'm kinda puzzled at the Panthers... upgraded what was probably already the most stacked position on your team... I mean... Oline? WR? Safety? Not that I'm complaining, mind you. Maybe they were thinking ahead to a Cam contract, and figured that a First round backup LB would come cheap???

Well it was Gettleman's highest rated player that was available. He's made it known since day 1 that he doesn't draft for need, he drafts for value.

I don't really have an opinion on the pick because I don't really know much about Shaq. If he can be another Thomas Davis like a lot of saying, then it's a great ******* pick IMO. Davis is 32, and once he's gone there's going to be an obvious huge void there if we don't have a replacement ready.

A lot of people are projecting Shaq to be used in a Kam Chancellor type role in the meantime until TD retires.

Just read that Gettleman apparently said that Shaq and Humphries were the top 2 players on his board at 25... so it was who he wanted off the bat, and since Humphries was taken by the Cardinals directly before us the pick was pretty much as automatic as it can get.

So we got our guy I guess.
