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!

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

Edwards is much more agile, and faster than ricky ever was.

That being said....I think everyone hopes for that kind of production, and more.

yeah's like ricky proehl... if proehl weren't slow white and awkward...

You do know who Ricky Proehl is, right?

This guy?

Yes, Edwards is arguably more athletic than Proehl, but he's got a LONG way to becoming anything like the receiver Proehl was.

I hope he does, he has a lot of potential, but there's absolutely no need to belittle Proehl's accomplishments.

I go to ASU and I'm a little biased on this subject. However, I've seen the most incredible plays of football come from Mr. Edwards. If he can stay healthy, he'll be a huge asset to our club.
