Mr. Scot

Panthers met with Josh Allen

Recommended Posts

Mentioned by Ian Rapoport during Senior Bowl coverage on NFL Network...

So yes, we've met with one first round quarterback, possibly others.

Of course, teams generally do their due diligence on players like this even if they're not expected to fall to you. And if you look back at prior Senior Bowls, you'll find we've met with quarterbacks pretty much every year.

Okay?

Now feel free to freak out.

I'm with it not saying I want to replace Cam because I don't. Cam is still a top 5 QB just need more pieces. The Panthers are just doing their due diligence. We also play Cleveland next season.

I think this says more about Anderson than Cam.

Well you don’t really meet with an expected top 10 QB or even first round QBs to draft as a backup... Only if you’ve got a QB approaching 40 or you want a starter.

Basically I don’t think it says anything at all about our QBs, just us meeting with one because there’s no reason not to.

Allen has been lobbying to go number one overall to the Browns (and he might). He wants to be known as "the guy who turned that program around".

Definitely competitive, and perhaps a tad cocky.

He comes off as a good kid though. He talks a lot about the work ethic of his farmer dad and says that's who he wants to be like.

I wish him good luck on his career, but it won't be with us.

If the Panthers were to draft a QB of the future (and I don't think they will) the ideal target might be Mason Rudolph. He's a Rock Hill kid and a consummate nice guy who, from what I've seen, is expected to go mid first round, maybe higher.

If he were to drop to pick 24, I think you'd definitely have to look at him. I seriously doubt he'll drop that far, so you'd probably have to trade up to get him.

Mind you, stranger things have happened, but this would shock me enough that I'd probably have to worry about someone stepping on my tongue when my jaw drops to the floor.

I think its due diligence on players plus it might give you information on other guys.  The center at Wyoming is a late round prospect and it wouldn't hurt understanding interaction.  Not saying that is the primary reason but might as well be thorough.  How many times do you hear about teams going to scout a player but finding the diamond in the rough when doing so.

The Patriots have drafted SEVERAL qb’s and have Tom Brady as their QB. It doesn’t matter who our QB is. If we draft a talented kid he is worth a gold mine later either as a starter or trade bait.

Top 5? No...He most certainly is not. Can he be? Yes...but he was ranked like 20 this year? He has a lot to work on.

Huddlers get so stuck in the past. Right now, he sucks.

Charley Casserly also pointed out something I hadn't thought about.

Free agency.

"Personalities don't change" Casserly said, so what a lot of teams do is interview guys that they may not need now, but might be interested in down the road.  If the time comes that they're available, teams can go back to their Senior Bowl interviews to look at what they thought of them back when.

eh, I think Rudolph will go in the 2nd. We cant use a first round pick on a QB. Cam Is still 29 man.

Of all the 1st round potential QBs I think Allen could drop the most. Darnold and Rosen are ahead of him and I think people know who Mayfield, Rudolph and Jackson are. If Allen has a subpar Senior Bowl, he isn’t going 1st round.

I'd rather we get to know the guy and do our due diligence than have Jimmy Clausen fall into our lap and have Hurney chomping at the bits to blindly save him from his free fall.

His numbers suffered this year because he had to carry the run game despite us drafting an RB 8th overall the same year.

Are you slow in the head?
