Panthers draft Armanti Edwards

152 posts in this topic

This guy is, no exaggeration, as big a playmaker as there was in this draft.

I'll repeat: there is no bigger playmaker. Not Spiller, not Dez Bryant, not anybody.

The idea he would have been there in the fifth or sixth is ridiculous. That reminds me of when people swore there was no way Chris Johnson would go in the first. If you want a guy with that much raw talent, you have to grab them. Guys from those smaller schools always get overlooked in the mocks, but NFL scouts are well aware of them.

If Edwards does nothing more than run half-dozen wildcat/smoke screen plays a game, he will be worth it. And that's not counting what he potentially could bring to the table as a returner or slot receiver.

Huge, terrific value pick.

Was surprised to see us trade up with a 2nd round pick to get him, but I'm glad to see we got him.

BTW... no 2nd round next year won't matter much if there is a lockout.

i don't hate the guy. i think he can fit in and have value but we could have taken him in the 4th without giving up anything, especially a 2nd round pick!

i really thought we had traded up for Tarheel DT Cam Thomas. when i saw we had traded, i stood up just knowing after getting the second best QB in the draft at 48, then taking a WR, we had traded up to add Cam to the roster! but nooooo.....

hey, look on the bright side. WE HAVE A FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICK NEXT YEAR!!!!!

I mentioned this in another thread, but he could also be our 3rd string QB. His college stats are better than Cantwell's. So we could only carry 2 QBs this season so that we can carry more special teams guys that have a higher chance of seeing the field than Cantwell.

The sad thing is, is that this really is a bright spot considering our recent history.

Maybe... but they listed him as WR when they announced his name as our 3rd pick. I see them using him as a KR/PR given his speed and moves... at least to start with.

Just because he's listed as a WR doesnt mean thats the only position he can play. He has the ability to play QB and we dont have to carry 3 QBs on the roster because of that.

He has never played a down at receiver at any level in his life. He's never ran a single route competitively. He weighs like 175.

It's laughable and inexcusable to pick him this high and to give up a second rounder to do so. And I'm saying that as someone that really really liked Armanti at App.

I think this pick was a reach only because we gave up a 2nd. The pick and round was good but still it was a high price to pay. He will have to have a big impact to make up for what we gave up for him.

Armanti is so small he would make Drew Carter look like Kemo.

the only thing i'm upset with at this point is we're not gonna get trindon holliday later in all likelyhood. i've wanted him on our team since i saw him play years ago. i've waited patiently for him to go out for the draft knowing we've always needed a return man. oh well though, i'll take edwards any day. jonathan stewart is sitting at home like "wtf damn! when am i gonna get the ball now??" this offense has too many weapons. load 'em up. i'm ready for the season to start.
