Vontaze Burfict

Beason also had a down year before entering the draft. That said, I just don't think he's a good fit for us unless we really are moving to a 3-4, which I don't believe we are.

I just don't think he can play outside in the NFL. I mean, I could be wrong and I don't think he'd be a terrible strongside 'backer, we need someone on the weakside. I still think he's an inside guy in general, though. Playing him outside would not be using his skillset to its fullest potential.

I'm not sure how he would transition, but I'm positive he can play outside to an extent. He's got the speed and athleticism to make it happen at strong side. I agree though that he's better suited for inside regardless of the defensive alignment.

Zach Brown has shot up draft boards and some places have him as a top ten pick. If the Panthers stay in the 4-3, the Panthers will take a hard look at him if they are in the 8-10 range. He's a 6-2 230+ pound linebacker that can run a 4.48 and play all three LB spots well.

Zack Brown is beast great instinctive player.

And that's why we should get him! He adds versatilty. He allows for Panthers to switch up from 4-3 to 3-4 and back through a game. He brings attitude!

My fantasy offseason at the moment:

1st-Vontaze Burfict

2nd-Kendall Reyes

Sign Antonio Garay in free agency!

So you want to draft a mlb that you don't even know if he can play outside when we already have one of the best mlbs in the league so we can use him in 3-4 packages on third down. So answer me this, what happens to Charles Johnson in a 3-4, or Greg Hardy, how do you work Anderson in a 3-4....I could go on and on....

If he can't seem to play an OLB spot then I retract what I said, however, general consensus among "scouting" sites is that he can. That's for coaches to decide, but I do know that the team seems to want to toy with being a 4-3/3-4 at will team or at least signs point to that.

I just feel his Ray Lewis/Steve Smith attitude would b very welcomed on our defense.

I was on the Burfict hype train for awhile, but I'm starting to think that he has difficult y when he isn't playing like a psycho. What I mean by that is, his game is dependent on him being emotionally uncontrolled (which leads to too many personal fines, and makes him almost as detrimental as it does positive). His play has suffered greatly this year because he has been attempting to control himself....until he learns to raise his productivity without causing so many penalties (if he ever learns) he should be avoided.

he's probably cycling off Roids when not playing like pyscho. We just need to make sure he's stays juiced and we'll be good to go.

This is Burfict's biggest problem. He doesn't know how to channel his emotions into exceptional play on the field without making stupid mistakes, and when he tries to take his emotions out of the game....he pretty much sucks....
