Bump. Damn glad we didn't take him in the 2nd.. looks like he might be a reach for the 3rd as well..

Looks like scpanther22 and cyberjag were the only two that wanted him with our 2nd rounder.

thats why I love the draft unpredictable..

I figured the panthers would look at him because he fits the moose role..but he has to work on his hands

I thought he would go in the 3rd, but would have had the most value in the 4th.. I don't like drafting WRs that can't catch though.. that is something that doesn't really improve much.

I saw on his twitter that he wrote something to the effect of how he is "ready to get better n go get that money."

I realize that the paycheck of the nfl is a fun part of the job, but isn't it a little tacky to come out and talk about that before even stepping foot off the plane?

I just found that a little strange.

True he had some of the smallest hands at the combine..he is known for dropping passes but he can play most compare him to D.Bowe..

I am with you.. I didn't like the pick and didn't want the pick. But, now that he is a panther.. I hope for the best.

LaFell was picked more for his blocking skills than his recieving skills. We are a run first team and he was probably one of the better options for those skills. If he can find his way to catching a couple passes this year as well as being a solid blocker, he will have been worth the pick.

    • Was just thinking about that last night. MJ and Cho might have something up their sleeves. Dont count us out. Gordon signed his name on papers with us last time when we were far worse than now.  I dont think Boston is the clear choice for Hayward. 
    • And by terrific I mean awful.
    • Exactly. You'll gain weight even eating below 2,000 if all your calories come from carbs/fats. Dieting is about tailoring your proteins/carbs/healthy fats within a calorie requirement. There are min/max to all three of these. I keep it at 50/40/10 depending on how I'm working on my body at the moment. 50% protein, 40% carbs, 10% fat within a certain calorie intake. I'll raise he fat and lower the carbs to lose weight. People also look at that and say wow half my calories can be yummy carbs and fat! Those carbs are rice veggies and beans/quinoa and the fat is avacado peanut butter or fish though so not really. On a diet like IGO's, as long as fats are watched, it's almost unecesscary to count calories. This diet would never work for me because of my needed protein intake...beans and tofu only have so much to offer someone building muscle. However I eat read meat 2-3 times a month, and alternate between fish and chicken otherwise with the occasional bean/pea/tofu day.
