How Hogan Fits in with the Panthers..

52 posts in this topic

Disclaimer: This article is more than 2 months old and is written on a WVU fan blog site. That being said, I'm kind of intrigued with this dude - he *reportedly* has first-second round talent with a ton of character issues, so we'll just have to see how he adjusts. Also, who better to write an analysis than the people who have been watching his every move for the past 3 years?

Although the Panthers have a new head coach, the entire defensive coaching staff under previous coach John Fox was retained with Ron Meeks as the defensive coordinator. Meeks has the potential to be a head coach in the NFL someday, and he has assistants around him that are very good too.

huh?

No BS, I've heard a lot of good things (on the field) about this guy from a few WVU fans I've talked to. Off the field, on the other hand, is a totally different story and from what I've heard about his character issues it is really surprising the Panthers picked him.

If he doesn't screw up, he should be fine. It sucks he will more than likely be put on IR as soon as the season starts.

No BS maybe if you weren't such an as sclown you would have noticed that NJPanthers posted that the Panthers were gonna surprise everyone and draft someone with character problems the night before the pick of Hogan and listed the reasons why. Maybe then you would not have been so surprised.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
