Carolina Panthers Draft Amini Silatolu Og Midwestern

This discussion takes me back to the conversations about Dontari Poe. We (rightfully) knocked him because he was not dominant against lesser competition.

You certainly can't say that about Amini. He crushed lesser competition.

Dude don't even waste your time. The users that don't get this pick won't get it until he's in the probowl. There is absolutely no logic behind half of what anyone against the pick is saying. Most fans just like sexy picks or defensive players they like but know nothing about.

He crushed lesser competition.

Literally, in some cases.

Watched the clips at a friend's house. His son asked "so does he have to knock somebody down every single time?"

My response: "Yes. Sometimes two people."

This guy is a MONSTER. He's a day one start and future Pro Bowl guard. Was one of my favorite prospects in the draft; I had him rated as the 3rd best OL in the entire draft behind Kalil and DeCastro.

LOVE this pick. Absolutely LOVE it. He is one big, mean ass nasty motherfuger. Brings attitude to our OL and big time physicality. Don't let the small school label fool you; this guy is an outstanding player and will be a Pro Bowl caliber guard for us for 7-8 years if not longer.

From what I've seen of his on-field demeanor, I think if he would have been on roster last season, Roman Harper would be taking his food through a straw right now

2011 NFL Rankings:

Carolina Panthers Defense: 28th Overall (yds/gm)

Carolina Panthers Offense: 7th Overall (yds/gm)

It has nothing to do with players I know because 99.999999999999% of you didn't know who the f*ck this guy was before the draft process started. The same percentage have never seen this guy play a snap of football until Kiper or Mayock gave you analysis on him after we picked him.

My point is we have 9 or more guys who CAN start on OL. With all of our starters from last year coming back from that 7th ranked offense and Cam having another year of reps and experience under his belt.

The guy could come out and be the next Hutchinson, but my point is we were set with what we had, and could possibly even have been better without him considering the additions of Campbell and Pollack.

The offense just need some quality depth across the board. The defense needed to be revamped.

Think about how many spots on the offense you look at and say, "Whoa, that guy sucks! We need an upgrade!"

Now think about defense.

That's why I'm not a fan of the pick.

I don't mind this pick.

You can never have too many lineman on your team especially mean ones. OL was a part of our team needs and we addressed it. Although this guy has a lot to learn and isn't the brightest, a couple years in the NFL off-season programs and he should by all accounts be a monster.

If you hate on this pick because it OL then you know nothing about football and would rather you not a Panthers fan, but if you don't like it because you think there was a better OL out there then I can respect that.

Although Hurneys picks are very iffy in the 2nd............Jury is still out on this kid

B+ Grade

would've been an A+ if he had those highlights for a D-1 school, thats just the way it is you play better talent

Yes, all-world abilities against D2 talent but "isn't the brightest." Bruce Campbell has the same rep but played D1, has played on the NFL level and started, but according to Hurney has struggled because he was moved around... He was brought in to compete for a starting job, yet a guy who hasn't played a snap in the NFL yet is already better than him, Pollack, and Garry Williams (the favorite for the starting job at guard last year).

Don't let me interrupt your fap.

Indeed.

The former left tackle excels in the run game, especially when pulling around the edge to clear lanes at the second level. Silatolu does struggle in pass protection on the edge against quicker rushers, but once he gets his hands on the opposition, it is over.

Uh huh. Fail.
