  1. Don't necessarily disagree about McClain not being a lock, but he played reasonably well and Carolina only carried 5 (Norman, Bene/Finnegan, Tillman/Young, Williams, McClain) at a given time along with 4 safeties. The bottom of CB depth typically only sniffs ST anyway on this team since they don't/didn't run a dime package so it should be an interesting position to watch in camp.
  2. Pretty much. Bene, Boykin, McClain (assuming he looks as solid in camp as he did last year), and 2 rookies... doesn't seem too promising for Teddy Williams, Lou Young, etc.
  3. 2016 NFL Draft Round 2 General Discussion

    And another receiver who steadily improved his rookie year, an offensive tackle who showed significant potential his rookie year, and most of the draft still to go.
  4. Tampa Bay Fans Delusional As Usual

    If it's wrong, do you really want to be right?
  5. Carolina Panthers select DT Vernon Butler

    Gettleman said they should contribute/make an impact from day one, not necessarily start. Enough people have commented on DL rotation so I won't repeat it, but Butler and Star appear to play different DT positions. Additoonally, Gettleman also said that Butler has potential at the DE position and could rotate there as well. I don't see how Butler's pick has anything to do with Star other than that they're both DTs.
  6. Voth predicts Hunter Henry

    Olsen's blocking has gone from abysmal to merely bad - serviceable is a very generous term. That said, he is way too effective in the passing game to take him off the field. For example: If Henry is drafted, I do hope that he can be a quality blocker because Greg isn't coming off the field.
  7. Chris Gamble to announce 2nd round pick

    Let's not forget that Gamble had great years with a respectable front 7 but arguably his best years with guys like Fua, McClain, Brayton, Dan Connor, and Sherrod Martin on the field instead of Star, Short, CJ, Luke, and Coleman.
  8. JaWalrus Russell's open letter to Jerry Jones

    They DID play both Weeden and Cassel last year... can he really be any worse?
  9. Carolina doesn't rebuild - they reload.
  10. I have Ginn listed as a receiver and didn't double-list anyone, but he'd make a good returner for sure. Michael Bates is hands-down the best KR Carolina's ever had, though that position has been marginalized in today's NFL, and Marc Jones was surprisingly effective his year in Carolina. Also added an "ST generalists" category sinceCarolina's had some really good guys who shined on ST over the years, though Cooper shouldprobably carry the same PEDs disclaimer as Sauerbrun. Colin Jones would be my next choice on ST.
  11. My list includes some players (like Otah) that had at least one exceptional season but may have flamed out thereafter, so I'm assuming that such performances could be matched in whatever offense this team would run (e.g. Deangelo is a great fir for a Fox-type offense, but poor for the current scheme). Depth chart for a given position generally goes left to rightand I'm not too concerned with sub-positions (e.g. 1-tech vs. 3-tech DTs) or about ending up right at 53. Whole names of older players also included for the young'ins. QB: Newton, Delhomme, Steve Beuerlein RB: Stewart, Williams, StephenDavis, Deshaun Foster if playing the Falcons (dude ate their lunch year in and year out) FB: Hoover, Howard Griffith (Griffith is the better runner/receiver, Hoover the slightly better blocker) WR: Smitty, Moose, Patrick Jeffers, Benjamin, Proehl, Ginn, Mark Carrier TE: WesleyWalls, Olsen, Shockey LT: Gross, Todd Steussie (could be Wharton also, but don't want to double-slot players) LG: Travelle Wharton, Andrew Norwell, Mike Wahle C: Kalil, JeffMitchell RG: Trai Turner, Kevin Donnalley, Greg Skrepenak (have his autograph on a hat - always thought he was a bit underrated) RT: Jeff Otah, Chris Terry (not much to choose from here...) DE: Peppers, Mike Rucker, CJ, Al Wallace, Hardy DT: Jenkins, Short, Star, Brentson Buckner, Jordan Carstens OLB: TD, Will Witherspoon, Mark Fields, Kevin Greene ILB: Kuechly, Beason, Morgan, Sam Mills CB: Gamble, Norman, Davis, Lucas, JimmyHitchcock SS: Minter, Harris, Chad Cota FS: Deon Grant, Coleman K: Kasay P: Sauerbrun (assuming he didn't get busted for PEDs, in which case Baker gets the nod) ST generalists: Karl Hankton, Nick Goings,Jarrod Cooper Returners not named Smitty: Michael Bates (how many other teams get to say an Olympian played for them?), He Hate Me, Marc Jones
