Talking Draft possibilities

What are peoples thoughts now we are on draft day?...

I hope we take an offensive player to impact that side of the ball even though DG loves a strong defense.

I cant see Fournette hanging around that far at #8 and the more I think about it, the more id love to see us draft OJ Howard (if the Jets don't steal). He is the best TE product to come through an NFL draft for many years. With Carolina being so reliant on Olsen its a great time to roll out a 2 TE formation for a couple of years before Howard can then become the franchise TE for the future.

I like mccaffrey also but think OJ would be a greater fit for our style of play.

Happy draft day everyone Excited is an understatement.

Would be very ideal for us if the QBs are picked early on tonight. Hoping for our pick to be one of the following; Fournette, Adams, Thomas, Howard or McCaffrey.
Fournette is the guy I really want but I have a feeling he'll be gone by 8.
I just know that regardless of who we pick later, we'll be getting a very good player for years to come.

I think it'll be McCaffrey, although there's a chance Fournette drops to #8. Howard would be a decent pick, but it would probably depend on whether Tennessee trade down from #5 or not. If they stay put, there's a good chance they take him.

Think the other possibility is a DE like Derek Barnett...

For me I thought would come down to CMC, OJ or Barnett

Honestly expected the pick to be CMC by about 70%, 30% for OJ

I did think Adams was going to be the pick as he kept falling

Happy with the CMC pick though, he can run, catch, return, very versatile, will keep defences guessing too as to which he will be doing, especially when he's in motion etc

I'd love a WR with our 2nd pick as well such as Jones or Godwin

Guys on my board for our first 2nd that I'd be happy with:
Obi Melifonwu
Budda Baker
Chris Godwin
Zay Jones
Cam Robinson
Jordan Willis
Kevin King
