Future of the Funchise

Benjamin quickly impressing Panthers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It's about as easy to pick out the Carolina Panthers' first-round draft pick in rookie minicamp as it is a Thoroughbred in a field full of ponies.

The way he effortlessly glides over the middle.

The way without leaving the ground he snatches passes out of thin air that other receivers have to put four to six inches between them and the turf to reach.

The way his long braids flutter in the wind as he distances himself from defensive backs.

It didn't take long for Kelvin Benjamin to wow the Panthers during rookie minicamp. "He's everything we thought he would be," coach Ron Rivera said.
The way his smile shines even under the brightest sunlight.

That he's 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds and wears No. 13 doesn't hurt, either.

I don't give a fug about catching passes in shorts

 

I have seen too many alligator arms by Benjamin to fall for anything just yet

 

Make plays during games and my mind will change

Hopefully by camp. More realistically preseason.

    • Destiny really fuged me in terms of me playing other games. I have a week off this summer and maybe I will be able to dive back in, but I'd really like to finish Breath of the Wild too.  Witcher is so much fun, but iirc I'm kind of at a point where all my quests are a much higher level than me (like 30s and I'm a 15 or something). I probably need to back track and pick up a bunch of side quests that are manageable to boost my level some.    I like the Witcher's lore better than Skyrim, but I still think Skyrim is a more appealing game to me just because you can casually pick it up and start dominating. Witcher is more rewarding but takes more time. 
    • No way would I consider CAP a lock to make the roster. In fact, I think he may be on the outside looking in at the moment. But, the stats bear out that he was roughly equal to Stew in effectiveness last year. Stew averaged 3.78ypc and a TD once every 24 carries. CAP averaged 4ypc and a TD once every 18 carries. Hell, it may be generous saying that Stew was equal to CAP in effectiveness last year. I think a lot of Panthers fans suffer from nostalgia when looking at Stew. I still think he's a decent RB, but to hear some Panthers fans talk you'd think that the guy was a future HOFer. I feel like most of us (myself and the front office and coaching staff included) have perpetually overvalued Jonathan Stewart.
