Today’s PFT on NBCSN looks at the Panthers’ draft needs

Today’s Pro Football Talk on NBCSN covers only 30 minutes.  The topics include the Panthers’ draft needs.

Annnnnd I think we’re gonna need a bigger show.

The segment on the Panthers also will include our recent interview with Panthers coach Ron Rivera, who joined us last month at the league meetings.

We’ll also get you up to speed on the latest goings-on in the NFL, with plenty of draft-related chatter and everything else we can fit into the show.  Speaking of the draft, Texans G.M. Rick Smith reportedly prefers linebacker Khalil Mack to defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.

If only there were a way to see if you agree.  A device that allowed you to let us know whether you prefer one guy or the other.

  1. If there is going to be a different positional coach for each player or a specific person that is charged with mentoring and developing the player, then it would be a good idea to consider drafting the player that has the better person in place to get the most out of them.

    Who is going to make the most out of these prospects, the HC, or the DC, or a positional coach, or somebody else handpicked for that player, and how confident are you in your coaching staff?

    Whichever player they take I just hope that they have a dedicated professional or team of coaches that will get the job done well in helping to bring out the most possible for each player.

  2. If you want another Julius Peppers, take Clowney (one of the best players in the league for 1 play out of 3). If you want a give it everything you have on every play, take Mack. Better yet, pick your choice or the QBs whose skills match the offensive personnel and offensive scheme that you plan on running, before they get picked over.

  3. What do Mack and Clowney have to do with the Panthers? A headline about the Panthers and a survey about the GM of the Texans. Good stuff.

  4. This is an easy pick……you take Clowney. He is more talented and MUCH more proven given that he has 3 years of experience against SEC competition. Mack’s competition was against Mid-American Conference competition.

    The only real question mark regarding Clowney and the Texans relates to his ability to transition to a base 3-4 defense.

    BTW, the statement above that Clowney is great 1 out of 3 plays is absurdly ridiculous. He was a disruptive force on every down and had to be game planned for since his freshman season. I understand that his stats were down last season, but he is truly a great player and since I know him, I can say he is really a nice guy who will be a great addition to the Texans.

  5. 3 years of experience against SEC teams netted him 3.5 sacks last season. That’s not exactly the experience I want.
