Travis Hancock, Mac & Bone/WFNZ, on what he believes the Carolina Panthers might do in this upcoming draft and what they definitely shouldn’t do.

What would Travis consider a “successful draft” for the Panthers? Which picks would he prefer seeing them make? What about other teams, who may impact which picks the Panthers make? What does Travis think is key for the Panthers, in order to make good decisions in this year’s draft?


Without the ones like you, who work tirelessly to keep things running, everything would suddenly stop.

Hospitals, factories, schools, and power plants, they all depend on you. No matter the weather, emergency, or time of day, you're the ones who get it done. At Grainger, we're here for you with professional-grade industrial supplies. Count on real-time product availability and fast delivery.

Call or just stop by. Grainger, for the ones who get it done. My friend Travis Hancock from Mac and Bone in the mornings on WFNZ in Charlotte is joining us now on the Adam Gold Show. One week from today is the NFL Draft. Do you care?

What's happening, man? Yeah, the NFL Draft, it's really all we have to care about around here at times. But do you care about the first round? Well, as a fan also of the New York Jets, I do have that going on as well.

Yeah, I care. And then you never know, the Panthers might get frisky and try to move up. That'll be entertaining to see if that happens or not. So yeah, we live in Charlotte over here, man. We're always excited for a draft no matter what. Coaching searches a draft is what we do around here.

Too often. The draft happens every year. The coaching searches shouldn't happen as often as they do. So we've kind of batted this around all week. If the Panthers packaged 33 and 39 to get back up into the first round, how would you take that?

Well, I think there's a couple of guys that if they started to fall, you'd really have to consider it. One of them is just, I saw a mock draft recently where Rick Spielman of CBS Sports had Brock Bowers going 31 in the draft. Wow. Yeah. And it brought Bowers got anywhere in the 20s for the Panthers needs. And certainly you'd have to consider making a deal.

I don't think that's going to happen. The other guy that we probably haven't talked about enough and I've seen them kind of at 2021 22. That's Brian Thomas from LSU wide receiver. And there's going to be a run on wide outs with Buffalo desperate.

Kansas City is always looking to add in San Francisco with I use status. We don't know what's going on there. So my talkie could be there as a guy that is big after the catch. So if Brian Thomas started to get from LSU, like into that twenty four, twenty five range and he was much higher on their board, which he probably is. And some of the other guys that might be a guy to watch for. But other than that, I don't know. You know, there's so many wide outs out of this draft.

Yes. Thirty three and thirty nine really. And yet, you know, it's so deep that they might not have to move to get a guy that can be an immediate contributor. Travis Hancock, Mac, excuse me, Mac and Bone in the morning at T-Bone. WFNZ is joining us here on the Adam Gold show.

Here's the thing. I read that that big piece on the the job interviews, the job fair of Bill Belichick yesterday on ESPN dot com. And I'm sure you guys laughed at it, too, with David Tepper poring over the analytics of play calling of his head coaches, knowing that, oh, my gosh, it's just it just smacks you right between the eyes that the owner is two hands on when he doesn't in areas where he shouldn't be hands on.

I'm like, I believe Robert Kraft is hands on, but he's not hands on in terms of the plays that the head coach is calling and getting involved in personnel, except when it involved Tom Brady and Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick was wrong. Does that kind of stuff like give you cold sweats like I know it does? Victoria, the resident Panthers fan here. Oh, it's sleepless nights in cold sweats. It's it's reminding me of dating in my early 20s, right?

Just lose sleep and I get clammy and things happen. It's not the most important thing in the franchise right now. Yeah, there's a lot of important things. Dan Morgan doing his job well. Bryce Young playing at a higher level with Dave.

And all those things matter. But none of it matters if David Tepper doesn't take a step back and realize that he's the problem. Because you can go find new coaches. They have new quarterbacks. They have new GMs.

They have Adam Golan studio with my man coach Pete through to Capital Financial Advisory Group on your website. And I love the term financial termites because there are always things eating at your money that you can't see. So you don't want financial termites. Termites in the financial world are risk fees, unnecessary commissions. All the bad things that we see and we hear about on TV are happening many times inside your portfolio.

You don't see. So you need a financial exterminator. Well, for the next 10 of you call, we'll put together for you your very own total retirement plan at no cost. Call 888-843-0013 or text Adam to 600-700.

Adam Gold is a paid spokesman investment advisory services offered by Capital Financial Advisory Group, North Carolina registered investment advisor. That can be a revolving door. But if the owner is not willing to learn, adapt and understand what he's doing wrong, then all of a sudden you're Washington, you're the Baltimore Orioles, you're these franchises that had notoriously bad ownership for a long time. You know, he Bryce Young could fail and would be upset, but that happens. But David Tepper is not going anywhere, man. And if he doesn't learn and you are 100 percent right. I have no problem with they have a free agent meeting and Dan Morgan lays out the plan that they're going to spend all this money on two guards or coaching all that stuff. He needs to have it. He owns the team. The things that you run by him trades moves. Fine. Don't go about it. But it's the play calling stuff that happened.

That's not normal. It's the story that happened from Joe Person in November where he watched it. He watched the Cleveland Browns game. Now, we're not sure when this was just earned a spot. Earnest Viner.

We don't know when he watched the game, but he saw some running play that he liked. It's submitted at the Frank. Right. See that stuff right there. I mean, seriously, like, I mean, who know? Like, I want to know what game that was to be out. What what was that?

But no, but it's those things right there. Be involved in moves and have an input. And that's fine. And it's the play calling. And I say today what Michael Jordan was a bad owner. But if Michael Jordan saw something wrong with the player or something on the court wrong, you're probably still going to listen to Michael Jordan's advice on how to, you know, fix your shot or you're going to listen to the go. I don't know if you want David Tepper giving advice on Bryce Young's footwork, because that also happened last year. David Tepper on on footwork. That's that is very interesting. Here's the thing that I talked about with Tepper.

And this is the problem we get. You know, billionaires who own teams in general have I mean, they're for the most part, they're all smart. I'm not I'm not talking about those owners who inherited teams. But David Tepper made his billions in another industry like Jerry Jones made his billions in another industry. And obviously they have a level of acumen for whatever their field is that have allowed them to accrue this much money that they could just buy a team. And in David Tepper's case, he paid cash for an NFL franchise. But it's to me, it's it's disrespectful to the people who have made their career and their life in the game. When David says things like I've been around football a long time, like, well, yeah, as a fan, you've been around football.

That is incredibly different. I don't care how much stratum attic you played like Europe or Madden. He might have been a Madden guy. I don't know. I'm not a man guy.

We're about Tepper and I are probably close, close to the same age. But that doesn't make you a football guy. Those are the people that we need to listen to. Yeah. If the new offensive coordinator, Brad, it's a walk into the office and said, hey, Cap, I've got a I got I got some stock advice for you. I've got some in reverse course and random coaches and personnel came in and said, hey, you know, you got to check out this or whatever. However, the you know, this is a they gave him like financial advice. Do we think you've listened to that?

No, I don't think so. So on the reverse, it's like you're going to tell these guys who know more than you what they should do. Like, you're not taking financial advice from these guys. They should be taking football advice from the stuff that we're talking about on the field.

Play calling quarterback footwork. I'll leave that to the guys that you hired because you hired this guy for a reason. Yeah. If Idzik walked in with like like an inside tip on orange juice futures, like from trading places, that might be a different story.

Travis Hancock, Mac and Bone in the morning on WFNC in Charlotte is joining us. You know, I misfired on I misfired on an investment back in my day and I still take myself for it. Really? I remember in I believe it was kind of like the fall of 2004. My roommate came in and said, you got to check out this thing called YouTube. I said, what are you talking about? Oh, gosh. And I went to the website and I'm like, man, this thing is really going to be.

You can watch sports video. I said this whole thing here. This is going to be crazy. It was like right away.

I was like, man, this YouTube thing is going to take off. And I didn't know how to do anything about like investing. Right. Turns out that I probably should have figured that out in 2004.

Then we're not done. I might be going to the Panthers today. You see, you would be a better owner. You would be a better owner of the Panthers. Oh, tremendous.

So here's my friend who brought this to me a long time ago, actually lives in the Raleigh area right now. And if he is listening, I apologize because I've thought about this a lot. He had an idea.

I kid you not. For online tea time booking. Oh, and I said that nobody's going to do that.

Courses aren't going to want to give you money to book their tea times online. Yeah, I told him no. I told him it was a dumb idea. Oh, my God. Of course. What do I know?

I'm an idiot. And I had one, too. I had one, too, about restaurant delivery where I'm like, why can't we get like restaurants to deliver?

Like, not just pizza and Chinese places. Well, another one. I had YouTube at DoorDash years in advance. Now, now here I am trying to figure out how to get money at the vending machine every day. Exactly. Yeah. Like, did somebody lose a nickel?

Did somebody lose a nickel? All right. Final thing for Travis Hancock.

All right. Let's let's fast forward. The draft is over. Tell me.

Well, let's say day two is over. What in your mind would be a successful draft for the Panthers? Well, they got it. They got to go wide out in the 30s. That has to be one. And I think thirty nine can be one.

I'm really starting like this. Here's all kids from Florida potentially at thirty nine. I think that they have to address. For the ones who work hard to ensure their crew can always go the extra mile and the ones who get in early. So everyone can go home on time. There's Granger offering professional grade supplies backed by product experts. So you can quickly and easily find what you need. Plus, you can count on access to a committed team ready to go the extra mile for you.

Call click Granger dot com or just stop by Granger for the ones who get it done. The edge wide out in either center or tight end in some form, there's some really, really, really high quality centers. It's not a sexy position there.

No. But, you know, they got a center at thirty three, a wide out at thirty nine. I want to have to be one of those two. And then they really, really, really need a tight end to man.

They had not addressed that at all. They're depending on Tommy Treble to be the one tight end right now at sixty five. I think it's going to have to be tight. And so if they got wide out center or edge and a tight end in the 60s, I think that that's addressing all these areas of need.

They think about the federal position is you've already invested in two guards. You got Austin Corbett playing center right now. Why not just go all the way in, get your two guards, your center Icky, and then we'll see about moping down the line. You can really solidify your offensive line for a long, long time. So I think center a wide out and then addressing edge or tight end somewhere along the way would equate to what we would think is a pretty good day. But we've had some pretty good days before. Then they go play the game conversation again.

Travis Hancock, Mac and Bone in the morning at T-Bone, WFNZ, my man. Thank you much for jumping on today. I will talk to you very soon. Next time I have an idea that may end up being a billion dollar industry. I'm going to hit you up right away. I will do it.

And we'll both say nah and then somebody else will make a billion dollars. Yeah, that's how it works. Exactly. All right. Thanks, man. Appreciate it. You got it. Travis Hancock here, WFNZ. Go carry where getting there is just a tap away.
