I Remeber Having This Big Debate About Blackmon.

52 posts in this topic

I said that Blackmon while being a good Wr wasn't a elite talent like AJ green and Julio Jones.

Now here is a video of NFLN talking about the same thing. The wr that Blackmon is comp. to were taking later in the 1st round. Him and Floyd are just lucky to come out in a year where there is no elite talent (with production in college) coming out this year but a lot of team in the top 15 need WR.

Oh, now you want to summon the voices of the talking heads...?

I don't believe anyone has ever said that the guy was on the level of a AJ Green [Go Dawgs!] or Julio Jones...not that anyone knows. But he is solid at his position and will probably only help the team that drafts him. It's like someone told you before, the problem is that there is really no so-called "elite" talent at any of the positions that we need (IMHO). But, why are you still talking about this? We won't get a chance to draft Blackmon because he'll be off the boards.

I hope that Hurney and company take an open-minded, wait-and-see approach to the draft. If the opportunity presents itself to trade down, that my be the best play, but if we draft at number nine, then I hope that we draft the BPA. If the FO deems that that is Blackmon, then so be it.

I'd argue that Floyd and blackmon are both lucky that the top 15 aren't as strong as most classes. Once ya get past the top two qbs and top tackle, the remaining top players aren't as good as other drafts.

Thank God for a rookie wage scale.

It has become a popular thing now to question Blackmon, almost to the point that he is getting underrated. I said last year before the draft that Blackmon would go in between Green and Jones. That was just my opinion last year and Blackmon didn't do anything this past season that changed my mind.

I will agree that AJ Green is a separate league than Blackmon and Jones. I just happen to like Blackmon better. But that's just my opinion from what I have watched.

Stop being mad because the talking heads agree with me. We debated all night and I was just wating for them to compare draft Class wr.

Like I said Blackmon is in the range of Nicks and Bowie again that's not bad he is still a 1st round talent. But not top 10 you got to have talent that changes your team. He would be a luxury pick for us and right now we can't afford to make luxury picks.

The only reason he and Floyd are getting Mock so high because there are a couple teams in the top 15 picks that have a desperate need for a wr.

He's right up there with the two guys from last season. People who only pay attention to what the current wave of draft media get easily swayed since very few fans actually watch these guys play.

Blackmon was dominant the past two years...pretty much doubling Green's production

He can play

I don't think he's elite in the fact that you can heave it up and expect a completion, like Dalton can with AJ Green. I think he can give a passing game elite production, given the right system.

Guess what? No one knows who is going to be an elite talent. These are just guesses. Most times they are right, a good deal of times they are wrong. Saying a player isn't elite because he isn't just like player A or player B means nothing. Alshon Jeffrey may turn out just as good as AJ Green, however we won't know that till the lights are up and the playing starts. It also has to do with the system that is being run, the situation in place, and the individual player. Saying the top 15 is shortsighted at best.

Nicks and Bowe are great wrs.

If Blackmon is being compared to them, then he could be better than Julio.

No one ever said he was better than Green.

And of course that's how the drafts are every year. Teams drafting in the top are taking who they need, not who they want. Nicks and Bowe dropped because teams needed other positions. If you go back and do a redo draft, I'm positive that both Nicks and Bowe are going much higher than where they were taken.

    • I don’t care if this is only 4 players, I think we should capitalize on the talent in this draft and get who we want.  Here’s 4 potential starters at critical spots:       Jamal Adams SS LSU 6’1 This guy elevates the defense.  Arguably more than any other player in the draft.  I know we want offense but Adams is hard to ignore if available.     John Ross WR Washington 5’11 188 4.22 I want a playmaker and this is a playmaker.  If Davis and Williams go first and he’s in the 20s, we’re trading up.  I believe this as much as raspberry milf juice.  This ain't just about 4.22.     Jordan Willis DE Kansas State 6’4 255 10” hands 33.5 arms Another defensive linemen? But we've got Peppers, CJ, and Addison! Yeah and now Horton and Delaire are going to be off the team.  This footballer is projected to go higher that a ton of people are surmising and has been having a meteoric rise (that is once online browser-writers realized how high scouts are looking at him)      Jeremy McNichols RB Boise State 5'9 214   I will call him speedy-rumble mctubberjackal.  Absolute ownage in many regards.  
    •   Except Voth didn't suggest that at all.  The OP misinterpreted the tweet and everyone just followed suit.  What Voth actually suggested in a response to a question was that while we could sign him to a long-term extension, we probably wouldn't right now.    He didn't say anything about the option except that nobody has been talking about it (simply pointed it out, forshadowing a question he was planning to ask).  No implication was made whatsoever!!   Greg @panther1gb89 @BlackBlueReview can a extension be done instead of picking up the option or does the option need picked up first?
    • And this sucks. Bye Oakland. Bye San Diego. Bye St. Louis (no one cares about the last one)... but who's next?   Hopefully Jacksonville, but hopefully not to London. Ugh.   But not going to lie though, a Panthers game in Las Vegas does sounds like a pretty fun weekend.
