I did see Malcolm Floyd put a crappy ND QB on his back this past weekend and beat every coverage they threw at him. That, honestly, was impressive.

I really don't think any of these WRs are can't miss prospects to be honest. If we wanted a cant miss guy at wide out we missed that boat when we passed on A.J. Green. All three of the big WR have issues this year, however the depth at WR this year may not be too shabby....


I WAS a super homer for Green. He's from my hometown and a personal acquaintance of mine. I toted that Green was a can't miss prospect and there was gonna be nobody else like him for some time.

I was right about Green being a can't miss prospect-but wrong in that noone else would come close to him for a while- Alshon has just blown my mind, and he is close to AJ level in my mind-not there yet-but another great season could put him there I feel. The guy just does everything great.

I still don't see cant miss with any of these guys. You cant draft a guy who isn't a cant miss prospect as high as we're probably going to be picking....

A.J. has the top end speed though, that's something that can't be taught. You either have it or you don't, and imo Alshon doesn't. I honestly think we should go CB in round one next year and wait till 2013 to get an elite WR, that is if Gettis doesn't develop into one....

Just watched a highlight reel that was 5 minutes long wasn't that good. So he finds soft spots in college zones, not that easy in the NFL. His speed looks average so he better be physical, but again it's a new ballgame in the NFL when proven DB's jam you at the line and your athletic ability isn't enough anymore.


That seems pretty opinionated to me. For starters, 4.4 certainly isn't slow. But it seems like you are just discrediting all his positives and saying that they won't translate based on nothing. You could say that about any player. The fact that you have to discredit 3 or 4 things in one post to say they won't translate shows just how complete he is..


And good luck jamming a 6'4" strong Receiver at the line in the modern NFL where touching a WR is enough to warrant a penalty with some officiating crews..

I didn't see 4.4 in those clips, couldn't care less about the dash.

Like I said there's no way in hell he's a 4.4 guy....even in the dash....

I'm with C42, I just don't see can't miss like with Green in any of these guys. However, the season is young, they have time to build their resumes and I'm open minded.

You can think the Panthers will have a Top 5 pick next year and that's fine with me. I for one have higher expectations, as I always do.
Top prospect WR's have been going high lately anyways..

I don't want a CB in the draft next year. For starters noone has stood out yet. Secondly, I trust Rivera and McDermott to make gold out of poo on the defensive side of the ball, but more importantly-I just like Jeffery or Kalil more than any defensive prospect out there. I think you gotta go offense unless none of our young DT's or CB's show any promise-which is a stretch considering how many we have and the brilliance of the coaching staff we have.

Not to be rude, but does it really matter what you think?
I mean if the guy is a 4.4 he's a 4.4....the stopwatch certainly doesn't have any bias, and it's not like we're seeing Jeffery get run down from behind in the highlight reel.

We will agree to disagree then. While I certainly don't want the Panthers to have a top five pick next year that seems like the direction we're heading if we don't address DT and if one of our WR doesn't step up....

This is kind of a foolish statement. How many times have we heard so and so runs a 4.3 in college only for them to get to the combine and run a 4.5? The stopwatch, or the operator of said stopwatch lies plenty bro....
