nfl draft Carolina Panthers select G Edmund Kugbila

Kugbila was picked to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine, but this wasn’t likely the most fortuitous selection in his family’s history. Kugliba’s parents Cletus and Lucy, won a visa lottery that allowed their family to move to the United States from Ghana. Kugbila and his family moved to the U.S. in 2000 when he was 10 years old. His younger brother Romauld, an Archer grad, is a freshman on the West Georgia football team. Edmund began playing football in the seventh grade. His size and talent attracted schools such as Alabama, Georgia, Vanderbilt and Florida, but a low SAT score prevented him from academically qualifying for a Division I school.


However, Kugbila has made the most of his time at Valdosta State. After playing in all 10 games in 2009 as a reserve, Kugbila started 10 games at tackle in the following season, and recorded the second most knockdown blocks on the team. In 2011, Kugbila moved to guard and played in all 10 games with eight starts. He was named all-conference and third team All-American. Kugbila finished his college career by helping Valdosta claim the national championship in 2012.

Don't know anything about him, but it's some protection for Cam so I'm ok with the pick. Would've still liked them to go with Rodgers or Patton at that spot, though.

Getting good review from NFLN. Good player, footwork surprised people that worked him out, rumblings from O-line coaches that he's someone they believe they can build into a top tier lineman.

6th/7th round talent from a Div II school drafted in the 4th. The biggest WTF of them all.

Eh, I'm reserved about this one. I'll trust Gettleman, but .. uh .. seems there were better players available.

He has really long arms and a big frame. Get him with a nfl line coach and strength coach and the guy could be a beast. Also how much worse than Hangartner could he possibly be?

Zod, do I need to buy you a decent web host? What hell do you run this thing on, some $4.95/month plan from HostGator?

It's the 4th round, who cares if the "experts" think he's a reach. Gettleman likes him and that's enough for me.
