decent blocker? King's a great blocker. What games have you been watching? I would not let him go.

King is certainly good enough that if we put the normal tender on him, somebody would ****** him up (5th rounder). Therefore the 2nd round tender has to be put on him since there is nothing in between.

King also has pretty solid hands. The beef about him here is that he gets no yards after the catch. That has improved a little, but you know, so what? He needs to be used in goal line and running situations more than anything, we have two other guys to play passes in the middle of the field, (a little simplistic and not good for other teams to pick up on but that's the gist)...

No way we trade for Miller. And I don't see us going after Daniels considering he is in the probowl this year. TE= Overrated(except for the elite ones and these guys are not elite)

Peppers for Witten.

Would still be a waste considering that Jake doesn't use the TE much anyways.

If King goes somewhere,

Draft Jared Cook. TE, South Carolina.

This years draft is waaaay too deep at TE to justify getting a high priced FA.

I was only listing pro options here, but that's a possibility I'd accept.

I know a lot of folks are happy with an "adequate" TE, one of those folks unfortunately being John Fox. For those with that mindset, I think it's worth remembering just how valuable Wesley Walls was with this team.

What made Wesley Walls so great wasn't just his hands. Walls had a phenomenal ability to find those "open spots" in the coverage. That's not really a weapon in Jeff King's arsenal. I'd agree with folks that King is a good blocker, but I wouldn't put him as anything more than an average receiver and not especially great at getting open.

Likewise, the presence of Walls was something opposing defenses had to account for. It meant that you had to think twice about blitzing because Walls could burn you on a quick pass. Likewise, before you devoted an extra man to one of the receivers or moved the safety down in the box, you had to worry about how to account for Walls.

With all due respect to King, no DC in the league is going to be concerned enough about him burning them to pay much attention to his spot on the field or think twice about adjusting his scheme because blitzing or moving the safety could come back to haunt them.

I want a TE that gives opposing defenses headaches.

I have no confidence that John Fox sees this as a need, but I think Jeff Davidson might. If so, can he convince Fox? Not getting my hopes up, but it'd be nice.

Untill Panthers decide to use the TE in the passing game ,it does not matter who the T E is .

If Jason Witten was right out of college and played for PANTHERS he would be a blocker and 4th option on passing downs .

The TE 's here are fine for what Fox wants .

    • I honestly thought this was going to be a McCaffery thread. 
    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
