I hear you on Yates. As a later rounder I think you would give him consideration but unless he is better than Clausen at this point, you are looking at replacing Pike. If we don't carry 3 on the active roster that puts him on the practice squad. I figure someone would snatch him up at that point making the draft pick somewhat of a waste. And if he were on the active roster you want a guy who could come in and play if needed. I just don't have faith that he would be not struggle mightily. If I were picking a guy to replace Pike I might also look at Tyrod as an option. I think Dalton may even go in the first..
I am in a bet so I can't put text on the message board until after the draft. TJ was given a raw deal by the fans at UNC. The criticism was unfair. He struggled as a freshman, then played REALLY well as a sophomore but got hurt. Struggled his junior year, but was playing with a lot of true freshmen in his offensive line and true freshmen wide receivers. He is smart, competitive, has a quick release, accurate down field, lit up Patrick Peterson and company, lit up FSU (400+ yards passing in both games), and mentally tough. I don't want him for the Panthers though. I just think he can be a late round steal which is what I took the thread to mean.
I only heard a bit of it too but they said (I believe) that they were concerned about the offense he came from. Not any character stuff, although they could be concerned about that, he just didn't say it. I woulda posted on the big thread but I have a bet with Verge and I can't post text. :p
