Here is just one of the several web sites I visit from time to time that follows the NFL, and I found it kind of interesting that they believe that some of the very players that we were at least reported to be possibly interested in making our first pick made their draft steals list. And, it's always nice to see your team's player on the list. Some say that nothing jumps out at them about Ealy, but you can't deny his production in college football's best conference

 

I wonder if Kelvin Benjamin would have made this list hadn't we picked him up.  I really don't believe that he would have. I can't say that he would have made it out the first round.

 

 

10. Aaron Murray

9.   Carlos Hyde

8.   David Yankey

7.   Cody Latimer

6.   Morgan Moses

5.   Jordan Tripp

4.   Derek Carr

3. Kony Ealy (DE | Carolina Panthers)

Ealy is a big-time playmaker

 

 

Playing on one of the best team’s in college football, Ealy posted a monster 2013 season. In 14 games, he recorded 14.5 tackles for a loss and 9.5 sacks, while also forcing three fumbles and intercepting a pass. In other words, he’s a disruptive presence on the field. But for some reason, that wasn’t enough for most NFL teams, as the speed rusher fell all the way to No. 60, where the Panthers grabbed him late in the second round.

 

 

2.   Marquise Lee

1.   A.J. McCarron

 

Hit on the link to see their remaining summaries.  Like anything else, it's all guesswork, but it's not like there's much of anything else going on.

lol, most of his summaries boil down to "he had name recognition, he shouldn't have fallen" instead of actually what made or break them as prospects.

 

We did get great fuging value with the Ealy pick though.

Ealy is no doubt a huge steal.

 

But, would have rather had Moses who happens to be #6...I guess Gman must have been really low on him though.

I was just watching moses' game tape and he doesn't look that impressive to me. He was getting pushed back a lot into the qb and got beat on a couple of plays. I really think for gettleman it was just a case of moses wasn't better than anyone on our roster.

I think Yankey is the ultimate steal this year. He is a beast of a man and can play pretty much any position on the line. Was given a borderline 1st round grade by a few people this offseason and fell to what the 6th!?

But the panthers should have gotten for a tackle. Doesn't matter if they are sitting 2nd or 3rd on the depth chart. Ealy was a luxury pick...

my guess is because he's a pass blocker and we are looking for a mauler.

That or he felt chandler was just as good

Sorry man. Was just voicing sarcasm and the outcry from media about missing needs.
I have no problem with the picks at this point.
