Football Gameplan's 2012 Draft Grades Video - Panthers
Posted 07 May 2012 - 05:29 PM
Our defensive overhall will see profits starting this yr. Barring injuries. The new faces on def really have me thinking, how many starters from last yr will we see on D?

Beason was a OLB in college and started his days in Carolina outside, it is a more natural position for him in the NFL because Beason doesn't have MLB size at only 6-0 and 240 pounds. I could easily see the team moving Beason outside with Kuechly in the middle.
Thanks for posting the video.
Thanks CF96!! It does give you guys scheme versatility.. Excited to see the defense.
Overall great summary, I was a bit surprised you didn't mention the trade for a 2013 3rd and 2012 6th round picks in order to move up and get Alexander, which is my only issue with the pick.
As for safety needs, I think the FO is hoping that Haruki Nakamura from the Ravens and Reggie Smith from the 49ers will challenge Martin in training camp, and they hope Godfrey plays up to his contract, so I think they felt safety was addressed in free agency and weren't looking to draft one unless there was a lot of value BPA wise.
Safety could easily become a big need in next years draft if things don't pan out this year though.
In that case...Alexander might end up replacing Norwood (whom I like).. That's a steep price to pay.
Good stuff thanks OP... I think Norman is a steal. Don't have a problem with Alexander but I don't like what we gave up to trade for that pick
Thanks CatMan! You guys will like the way Norman plays!
Great vid thanks for sharing
More knowledge than ESPN analysts
Thanks Car123! I always strive to be original, unbiased and true to my own analysis without the spin
Great Video. I like the analysis. We all love Beason so its hard to give an unbiased opinion on where He and Kuechly are on the field. I'm kinda eh on the alexander pick. Thats one we'll really have to wait an see on.
Thanks CC!! I think Alexander will have the fan bullseye on his back!

I think Smith has some potential and will win a S spot.
Problem is both our S's are no good esp when it comes to tackling.
Alexander has some potential so im fine with the pick. Like most, just didnt like giving up a 3rd. But he might be worth it....
Norman def was a steal. If he was a tad faster he would be a 2nd round pick.
Its a shame, but its true!
Thats one of the big reasons we took Kuechly. He is extremely tall for a linebacker and has exceptional cover skills. We have to deal with Jimmy Graham, Tony Gonzalez and Kellen Winslow Jr. twice a year each. You can bank on him being the guy asked to cover them in clutch situations.
Kuechly is also more athletic (in terms of combine stats and whatnot) than Beason, so he actually may be more effective as an outside linebacker. We like to use a lot of 3 safety sets on defense, so running a 4-2-5 we will actually lose very little mid field coverage with Beason and Kuechly roaming about, as both are sideline to sideline players.
If you have the personnel, that 4-2-5 look is why the Giants defense can match up with a lot of passing teams...(except the Saints**)
Other than the Beason thing I liked it a lot. I liked the editing, your presence as an analyst. It seems like you're following your dream. Good luck.
Thanks Pepaw! Just flat out living the dream! But honestly, its this interaction with the fans is what makes this even more fun!
I love your videos. Make sure to push on your marketing and I hope your videos are monetized. You could make a couple bucks from all the content you upload. Don't give up your dream. The Internet is democratic and the cream will rise to the top. Keep it up.
FP You're the Man!! Thanks alot! Don't worry..FBGP has a great plan in place
ALWAYS great to have analysis from a non-Panther fan/ESPN analyst. They might play Beason and Kuechly at MLB equally in camp, just to see what is more effective (Beason having a dodgy Achilles now) but yea, great video. Czar, where do you rank their draft out of all 32 teams?
Also, do you get a counted view for embedded videos? If not, everyone watch on youtube, he gets paid for collecting view counts!
Thanks Sapper! The embedded views count! I'm also creating website exclusive content per team on our webstie..stay tuned!
