I hope not. Happy feet, dances and will not step up in the pocket. Seems to me that he got a lot of three-man rushes (in the Illinois game) and the ends were attacking from the outside. Three linemen blocked the nose. He didn't step up most of the time, and started running from the DEs. He is a lower first round talent, IMO.

Smoke screen??

Hmmm...maybe it was the Panthers that told everybody he was great on the white board. Let the offers roll in!!:D

Smoke screens come from team statements. Not mock drafts.

Well I'm confused. I've been told that the smokescreen was that the Panthers leaked that Cam Newton was perfect in his private interview, but Rivera had already said good things about him in public anyway, so what was the point, and how are you going to fool teams that have already interviewed him anyway and knew exactly how he did?

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
