Default First Rounder for DeAngelo Williams?

Quote:
The Carolina Panthers have the luxury of two potentially dominant running backs on the roster, in spite of the fact that both battled injuries in 2009. So is it time to cash one of them in to try and move back into the first round of the draft?

In addition to the Julius Peppers saga, that's the top offseason question they must address, according to Bill Barnwell of the Football Outsiders. Barnwell thinks they might move DeAngelo Williams to the San Diego Chargers in exchange for the Chargers' top pick (No. 28 overall). In the same vein, it's possible the Panthers might give the Houston Texans a call, since they need a top RB, and could return a slightly higher pick (either No. 19 or 20, depending on a coin flip).
I don't expect these RB rumors to slow down for us until we either sign or draft a RB, a bit of an interesting thought to give up a 1st for DeAngelo Williams. Too much? Not worth it?

No thanks, RB careers too short to risk trading a valuable pick like a #1 on, especially an injury prone RB.

I don't remember Williams having a bad injury history. Nothing major. You're thinking of Stewart. I wouldn't trade a #1 for him either though. I would possibly for a 2nd though.

I doubt Kubiak would ever trade for a running back by giving up a first round pick. Also, I would be suprised if draft a running back in the first two rounds of the draft.

DeAngelo Williams is a solid running back but he had a good rushing offensive team (linemen knew how to open up holes). Thanks, but no thanks...

Default Re: First Rounder for DeAngelo Williams?

I absolutely would. He is only 26 years old and the last three years he has had at least a 5.0 ypc. If he only has 4 years of top level performance in him so be it. That first rounder is no guarantee and we need someone like Williams to make an impact right now. He is a complete back and would be a huge upgrade. Still have the rest of the draft and FA to try and fill another couple holes. I really hope they at least consider this.

Default Re: First Rounder for DeAngelo Williams?

I was high on DeAngelo coming out of college, like I was high on AP coming out of college. I would have busted a gut as a GM to make a play for one of these guys. DeAngelo is the kind of running back we need give that boy the ball in the red zone, and 6 points soon appear.

Desclaimer: If I was our GM we'd probably have Colt Brennan backing up Big Bad Schaub, and Reggie Bush returning punts, so I'm not claiming armchair GM of the year.....yet.

There aren't many NFL backs I'd exchange a first round pick for, unless it was
a very late first round pick. Chris Johnson obviously and many the little guy with the Jags, but that's all in the AFC South. Elsewhere in the league Peterson, but who else would the Texans exchange their 20th (or 19th) pick for ?

Does anyone remember how close we came to drafting Williams in 06?

It would've cost us what turned out to be DeMeco and OD but had the Bills not leapfrogged us for John McCargo, we would've had 2 Williams in the 1st round 06.

I watched DeAngelo Williams play for Memphis in a bowl game...I was in awe, hands down the best college football running back I have seen this decade. Yes, better than AP. I compared him to Barry Sanders before the draft, he started getting those compliments elsewhere during the 2008 season. He's something special.

4. DT and RB tied, with CB a close second
5. C/G and S tied
6. OLine and RB tied
7. Kicker

To get a better idea what yall think is most important, I tallied the votes and assigned them a rating. Round 1 picks get 7 points, round 2 picks get 6 points and so on. Belows is the highest vote getters by position.

RB 136 points
DT 132 points
C/G 115 points
CB 109 points
FS/S 84 points

So, SURPRISE! Yall think RB and DT are the two most important things in the draft. LOL
