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.

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
