  1. There is no way in the world we pick that early.
  2. Your final predictions (#30)

    I think it'll be Vernon Butler
  3. It is draft week people... look alive...

    For some reason, I thought the draft started Friday. Thursday is PERFECT. I have the night off Thursday/Friday, don't mind missing Saturday plus that begins early in the day anyway so I'll still be able to catch it. Sucks the draft is on finals week though.
  4. The schedule

    Do teams usually do anything different when they have to travel to play West Coast teams back to back? Seems like it would be illogical for us to come back to Carolina but I don't know the NFL rules and if we'd be allowed to stay out there.
  5. Henry averaged 5.6 YPC on nearly 400 carries at Alabama. How was he a volume back? He isn't as good as Gurley as a prospect, but anyone expecting to get a top tier prospect at the 30th pick is expecting too much. I know a lot of people like to hate on Henry, almost primarily because he played at Alabama (and people have to stop letting Richardson cloud their judgement - recent Bama backs have been pretty damn good, and all of them were lesser prospects and athletes than Henry), so I shouldn't bother getting into a debate about it again. I'll just say that while I question his durability or if he is the best route we should take at our pick, I have very little doubt about what he could provide to our team.
  6. Teams in the NFL aren't going to care much about this (not saying it is right or wrong)as long as it isn't bringing bad publicity. And since the general public hasn't heard of this guy, thus probably hasn't even heard of the incident, this isn't going to prevent the Panthers from drafting him if they like him enough. Same with like Terrell Suggs. Dude has a sketchy history but nobody cares so it isn't something they are going to worry about much. Lets not forget that Greg Hardy only got suspended/deactivated/whatever you want to call it because of public outcry when the Ray Rice video came out, nobody other than Panthers fans even peeped a word about it beforehand. If we like him and he is at the top of our board in the later rounds, this incident won't stop us from drafting him. What we will do is just check out his character and ask him what happened, so it'll play a role in the interview process.
  7. I've thought it would be Derrick Henry for awhile now. He is exactly the kind of guy Gettleman would take. His potential for injury due to his height scares me, but I love him as a talent.
  8. Kuechly a bust? One Bucs fan thought so

    The only thing I realized by reading that thread is how much better this site's layout is than just about every other team/fan site I see. I would get sick of posting there after awhile.
  9. Panthers ink Boykin

    For some reason I completely forgot about Ed Dickson. His contract is dirt cheap (relatively speaking).
  10. Panthers ink Boykin

    Gettleman seems to prefer 1 or 2 year contracts. I could be wrong but I am pretty sure we haven't signed an FA to anything longer than that since he arrived. It's smart. It has the potential to backfire but at the same time, you are best playing it safe to have your long-term contracts mostly withyour top tier players. It's less likely they will fall off a cliff which means you aren't going to have a bunch of wasted money 3years down the road. It was the case with someone like James Anderson, who was a solid player but nothing special.
  11. Carolina Panthers Mock Draft Rounds 1 - 3

    Not a fan of Hunter Henry in the 1st round. He's just eh to me. I don't think he's the best tight end in the class and even if I did, the gap between him and the next guy isn't high enough to warrant not just waiting until the 2ndto take a tight end if we choose that route. Just my 2 cents though.
  12. Saints could be tabbed for Hard Knocks

    Rams, Bills, and Raiders would be far better choices.
  13. Bosa: I'm best in draft

    He's good, but he isn't good enough to dish out what it would take to dish out to move up and take him.
  14. Better know a prospect - Kevin Dodd

    Need to watch more of him, but I watched his game tape against Alabama earlier. You can tell how much potential he has, excellent rip move. However, he needs to use his hands a lot better. He's strong but ends up dropping his hands far too often and allowing the offensive lineman to get a good grip on him.
  15. Henry is physically imposing.It isn't like the idea of hitting a running back low is something only professional athletes think to do, otherwise they'd just do it to Cam. Henry won't be easy to bring down. His leg power is tremendous. Of course everyone in the NFL is fast. You acting as if Henry's speed is a detriment though is what I'm disagreeing with. He has a very good second gear, good enough to create separation from someone in open space. He will probably run somewhere near a 4.47-4.5. That is why I asked if you had seen him play. Henry's speed is not a question unless someone is just assuming it based off his size. The guy is physically imposing.
