Panthers wide receivers from a college standpoint

Recommended Posts

If Cam continues to produce with ragtag group it’s truly a miracle. Imagine the day this team actually dedicates resources to get some legit receivers 

 

Funchess - was a TE until his last year at Michigan, his career high was under 750 yards in a season

Shepard - Had more rushing yards than receiving yards at LSU, was a dual threat QB in HS and was recruited as a QB

Samuel - Also had more rushing yards than receiving, his career high was around 800 yards, mostly swing and screen passes 

Clay - Mainly used as a returner at Utah.

Byrd - situational deep threat who never had more than 600 yards receiving 

 

Bersin was actually the most productive college receiver

I don’t think this organization will ever properly address the position.

With that said, they’ll have ANOTHER golden opportunity this offseason when the 2014 draft class become FA’s (minus 1st rounder who have had their options picked up).

Just give me Dante Pettis in the draft please.

If we could grab a solid receiver in the 3rd or 4th round I'd be ecstatic. Not gonna happen with Hurndog drafting though. I think we have greater needs in the 1st and 2nd like safety and O-line. I guess it all depends on how the draft plays out though.

Lol sorry, but that's completely false and probably the worst take I've seen yet.

Curtis Samuel is nothing of what you said. 

Curtis Samuel is a WR who can play RB - not the other way around. Per Pro Football Focus, Samuel had 220 snaps from the backfield, much less than his 425 snaps from the slot. He's more experienced as a wide-receiver than as runningback.

So yes, Curtis Samuel is indeed a better receiver than a rusher. In fact, it could be argued he's the class' best route runner.

During his Junior year, Samuel accumulated 865 yards and seven touchdowns on 74 receptions, averaging 11.7 yards per reception. He ranked second in the conference in all three metrics, and was named a member of the first-team All-Big Ten as a wide receiver. Curtis Samuel is the only player in Ohio State history to finish with 1,000+ yards rushing and 1,000+ yards receiving.

But tell me more about how he's a runningback playing wide receiver. Just as bad as saying Cam Newton's a runningback playing quarterback.

Here's my twitter thread where I go over eight games from Curtis Samuel available on the internet.

 

With hands like a running back.

And Sheppard can’t catch worth poo. So right now we have two big targets in funchess and Olsen and no experienced speed guy Maybe we should use cmc in slot once in a while and send him deep

Wait now we are complaining about WRs after everyone told me KB sucked and we’d be better off without him? He had 1000+ yards and 15 TDs his last year in college and made some clutch plays, I think. Almost 2500 yards in 2.5 years but he singlehandedly ruined the running game. 

I like Funchess and Samuel, but we've only got 1 of those guys left. The rest is below mediocre.

You have officially jumped the shark.

Samuel had 1286 rushing yards on  a 172 attempts, he  had 1249 receiving yards on 107 catches 

 

How am I wrong again?

 

And if you think he was this class best route runner, you know nothing about to football.

Screw the draft we need a bonafied free agent wide receiver. Someone like Desean Jackson or Sammy Watkins

Um because he had more snaps from the slot than the backfield.

how is that hard to comprehend?

And there’s plenty of analysts who agree that Curtis may be the best route runner. Matt Waldman, Josh Norris, and plenty other draft analysts rave on him.

This. We have enough youngsters to develop. If we add another WR, I'd greatly prefer a vet. An actual WR vet, not a career special teamer. We paid Shepard to be something that he simply isn't.
