Alabama LT Cam Robinson Is Visiting The Panthers Today

I tend to side with you on this. IF you feel like a player can capably fill the hole/need on a team then I don't see why you shouldn't take him at your draft position because pundits say he's not "good value at that spot".

This doesn't mean I'm in favor of reaching for a player who is overvalued. I say take the guy if you feel he can do the job.

Right now, I'd favor Howard at 8 over Robinson. But, if Robinson became  Pro Bowler at either OT position I think we'd all be GIDDY considering the problems we've had at Tackle since J.Gross retired.

 

   Pro Bowler? He's an Alabama OL. He will be fortunate to be with the team that drafts him in 3-4 years.

I'm just a bit curious since you made that post. Does anyone here know how BAMA lineman have fared in the NFL the last few years since Saban took over the program?

  Since 2000(Chris Samuels) no bama OL has been selected by a team that was glad they picked him. That's more than a trend. It's starting to become almost fact. Makes one wonder how a dominant, power running team has trouble producing NFL OL and RBs to a lesser degree. CB ain't pretty either. Those are the positions that have a lot of interpretation of holding as a key factor in success. But I'm sure that has nothing to do with it.

I'd rather trade back with Philly if they'll give us a 2nd or some competent compensation, and take Forrest lamp as a one year experimental tackle to kick inside when turner or Norwell, or both leave. And have oher ready to kick inside too if that happens. But idk there's too many good prospects. A blue goose at one of the skills positions will fall in our laps. Lamp is a Goose too because he can play any position on the O line. Much like the Cowboys Zach Martin.

I'm already working under the assumption that Short is gone after this year. Butler will be our starting three technique going forward.

You shut your filthy mouth....

honestly im an Auburn fan so im biased. they always kick ass in the college game and then look used up --sign of steroid use ;)

i would not be at all mad if we took ramzyck or bolles at 8. while its a reach, if you think the guy is a pro bowler isnt it worth it at a position that is so important in todays pass happy game?

   As you should guess from my name, I'm an AU fan also. Watched this for a long time. And it's more specific positions to avoid like the ones I mentioned. Steroids? Maybe? I lean more towards liberal use of holding at both positions, that seems to never get called. 

    As for any OTs in this draft, nothing to consider before #40. And I don't even like any there. Just not a fan of any of them.

agree with the holding. those dudes are not held to the same standard as other SEC teams. 

i agree that none arr first round worthy, but those are my untrained eyes. i mean to say if Gettleman thinks one is first round caliber then i say you take them cause of the need and the depth at other positions we are looking to fill. DE, RB, and S.

I am not that concerned. Hell, he's hitting our cap for what, 13 or 14 this year. So next year, his average compensation may go up to 17 or so, and the contract could easily be structured so the cap hit would be less than this year's.

If they want to keep him, they can, no problem.

 

Edit- Apparently I forgot to quote. The above post is in response to those saying KK leaving after this year is a done deal.

Everyone goes with their bias, their mocks etc-- Dave goes with HIS deal-- everyone else be damned. If Cam isnt the pick-- its because Dave has someone else higher-- and if he does and the world comes to an end then its because Dave said hes the BPA.

Im not supporting this or care-- just saying Dave took Shaq and a pile of others when he wanted them, and that was that.

So for that dont be surprised if its Cam Robinson.
