Armanti Edwards our new Ricky Proehl???

32 posts in this topic

RESTORING THE ROAR: Jimmy Clausen (#2) isn't the only quarterback exciting the Carolina Panthers' front office. Former Appalachian State quarterback Armanti Edwards (#10), a third-rounder who is making the transition to wide receiver, shows promise to give the Panthers a slot option they haven't had since Ricky Proehl successfully opened the middle for Jake Delhomme.

its a rather short post, but just curious, what do you guys think. We haven't had an effect slot since Proehl opened the middle of the field for us. I can only hope Edwards is the answer.

I don't know, but if Edwards is even half the asset to the team that Ricky Proehl was, then I'm all for it. Ricky was the best thing since Wesley Walls was doing amazing things, and I for one would sure love to see that kind of production from a receiver other than Steve Smith again!

Yeah except Edwards trumps any amount of athletic ability Proehl ever had.

Let's stop the Randle El and Pat White comparisons.

The majority ofthe time Edwards touches the ball will be because it was thrown to him.

Edwards isn't going to be a gimmick player. He is going to be a WR and probably the best one out of the 2010 draft.

I said it first KRAL a couple of days ago. He will be Rookie of the Year. NO DOUBT

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
