Carolina Panthers Draft Frank Alexander DeCarolina Panthers

Has vines for arms to fend off blockers. Active hands as a pass rusher. Generally locates the ball. Pursues hard and shows good closing speed. Good effort production. Solid personal and football character.
Has tweener traits. Athletic ability, speed and suddenness are just adequate. Needs to develop wider variety of counters. Does not bend naturally and shows some stiffness in his lower body — limited flexibility affects his finishing ability. Does not play with strength or leverage at the point of attack. Not explosive or powerful. Limited upside.
Competitive, productive, high-motor college defensive end lacking hand-in the-dirt anchor strength and stand-up fluidity. Long arms and effort-based production give him a chance to be a backup.

Are you retarded? Not flashy, but a very solid pick. Was a guy every expert was talking about this morning as great value here.

Oh god please kill me now. Why does our GM insist on trading away future assets on reaches.
Traded next year's 3rd and this year's #180 for the pick.

We gave up way too much, but this guy looks like a great pass rusher. Could be a steal. Was an elite pass rusher at Oklahoma.
