  • I want Spiller at 11

    So after watching a lot of tape (read that as YouTube highlight videos) on Spiller I'm really impressed with this kid's speed, and think he can be great in our backfield. The only teams I think that stand in our way are Seahawks at 6and Raiders at 8, but if he falls to 11 does anybody else want him in Orange and Blue? :salute!:

        Yeah but Norris is a top 5 pick, unless we trade up we have no way of getting him

          I like CJ Spiller a lot but Moreno is in the way. Though the Panthers drafted two 1st round RBs in a short period of time (2006 and 2008) it is not a common procedure and DeAngelo Williams was a late 1st round pick. We might draft a running back but probably not in the first two or even three rounds.

            Yeah, wouldn't be surprised if Al takes Spiller. From what I "hear", he loves the kid. I don't know if there's truth but I've heard it a few times from different people that supposedly know someone within the organization.



            This same guy predicted that we would draft Bey & Mitchell before it happened. Also predicted that Garcia would be a Raider and that we'd trade for center Samson Satele all before it was made public. So technically, he's 4 for 4.

            With that said, I hope Al doesn't pull the trigger on Spiller.

              I wouldnt mind having him if we didnt have moreno, but mcdaniels wont draft another running back in the 1st round besides we have 2 holes that need to be filled on the o-line before any RB runs good for us. I wouldnt mind seeing his teammate jacoby ford playing for us though
              A healthy Kenneth Dixon is a top 5 NFL RB.

                Chuck Norris does not get drafted. Chuck Norris drafts US!

                      Mcdaniels got ripped for drafting a RB last year, there's no way he'll pick two in a row. Moreno is Mcdaniels guy and he will stick by him. I'll give it about a 0.0000001% chance that we take spiller.

                        i highly doubt we draft a first round RB this years draft if we do draft a RB its going to be late in the draft

                          I totally agree that we need another rb to complement moreno, I love Buck but the guy is gettin' up there in age and seems to always be nicked up. Having said that I was shocked when the panthers pulled the trigger on Jonathan Stewart after taking Williams two years prior (even though it totally worked out for them), but I don't think i've ever seen a team take a player of the same position in the first in consecutive years unless, well, you're the lions (wr anybody?). Like i said we need another rb, just not in the first, or second.......or third really.

                            Last year was surprising because we drafted Moreno with our first 1st after signing 3 RB's in free agency (Buck, Arrignton and Jordan).

                            Taking Spiller with our 2010 1st rounder would be a similar surprise, as good as he is - and also faster than KM.

                            But McD repeatedly stated during the season that our trouble running the ball was not the fault of the RB's. It was "blocking."

                            If McD follows through with this thought, he should be drafting O-Line. If not with our 1st, then for sure most of the rest of the way.

                              I'd much rather have Jahvid Best or Dexter McCluster taking into account the value of a backup/3rd down/Screen Pass RB. Makes much more logical sense considering we have much bigger needs. Best had injury concerns, I'm well aware, but he is an electric player who very well could be a game-changer even if he only touches the ball 8-10 times a game. Best and Moreno would be a very nice duo that have playing styles that would compliment each other greatly.
