he doesn't sound as mad at the world as smitty does though lol

that mega-sleeper article pointed out that this could be considered a pick that the smart teams like the colts/patriots make in the later rounds...we must of done our homework.

I'd like to join you guys in the Pilares fan club. I've never heard of him til now, but I saw the pick and for some reason I can't stop being excited about it. As to the last statement, I do feel like this is the kind of pick the smart teams make in the late rounds. This Pilares fanboy club is awesome!!!

I remember him now after watching the highlights of him shredding my Trojans :-/

I think he will end up being one of our best picks of the draft.

I don't know about y'all but everytime Pilares scores I'm yelling "ALOHA!!!!" Hopefully him and Newton will build a strong relationship from the start.

I really thought we would take a linebacker and try to turn him into a WR. This is a total departure from the norm... WTF. :D

Hmmm...I'm thinking we're gonna see some 4 wides with a TE as the 5th receiver, which is an awful lot like what Cam had at Auburn, except he will have much better WR's now.

So on the first page one review says he catches with his hands, the other say's he's a body catcher. Which is it?

And I don't think I agree with average speed, 4.42 and the videos show him burning past guys.

I noticed that too.:confused:

I can't say that I am disappointed in Pilares assuming he doesn't have any knee problems going forward. He ran a 4.42 which is quick and looks good in the open field. I just think we could have gotten equivalent or better talent in the six with Dwayne Harris. He will be ever bit as good as Pilares and is a better returner. He ran a pretty slow time at the combine but improved it on his pro day down to between 4.44 and 4.38 by all accounts. He is excellent after the catch getting yards and is great in the open field. He is really hard to bring down and is a great returner. I hope Pilares is healthy and can contribute. I just don't know why we always take projects and guys with question marks at receiver. We need guys like Harris who isn't a guy who converted from another position and is still learning the position.

It does look like we are going to have an offense which will run whether by design or after the catch.

People said the same things about Gettis this time last year...

i can't see him making the team. practice squad and hope no one else grabs him is best i can imagine for this season...

There are at least five guys that I put ahead of him right now. Unless he completely blows up in camp, I think practice squad is the best case scenario.


I see the Panthers keeping Steve Smith, Dwayne Jarrett, Brandon LaFell, Kenneth Moore and Armanti Edwards. I'm sure they will stash him on the practice squad since they used a draft pick on him.


Truthfully, I don't see Gettis getting out of the practice squad this year. He is a project, the kid just traps the ball to much to play in the NFL his first year.


At this point, Gettis sounds like Drew Carter...

Wright will be on the field before Edwards if Edwards doesn't win the PR job. I rate them this way:

Smith
Lafell
Moore
Wright
Edwards
Jarrett
Gettis


Camp fodder


He's another small(ish) school guy, didn't get a lot of press with Salas there. But he put up good numbers and has intriguing measurables. Hopefully he can be another hidden gem for Hurney.
