What are your thoughts on him?

I'd love to take a flyer on him in the 4th round (doubt he lasts that long). He has EXCELLENT hands and his measurables are solid (~ 6'0, 202lbs, 4.7 ) I think he would fit great in our offense and be a very good possession receiver. He runs routes cleanly, has no fear across the middle, and catches with his hands, not his body. If we don't address WR in the 1st or 2nd round, I hope we take him.

i like him as a slot wr that could move the chains like welker abit.

i think he is a slot guy at best but he might be solid...dont know if he will be as good as welker.

so if the panthers got two wr one deep threat early...i would be fine....

but i can already hear the rants about not taking austin, the best slot wr in the draft, to most people.

I'd love him, but I don't see him lasting until the 4th.

To be honest, as I watch the combine I really want 2 WR's. There is just so much talent there and I don't know that a BPA philosophy wouldn't take us in that direction anyway.

I want a big burner, a true number 1 to replace Smith, then I want a quick, slot type to compliment the outside speed and Olsen.

Also, I'd take a flyer on Denard Robinson as a WR too. He's an unmistakably gifted athlete and looked good in drills at the combine.

Hes more of a chain mover, not a lot of moves in the open field. However hes great at finding holes and getting open. He catches just about everything thrown his way. his 40 was faster then I thought. Like you guys said hes a fearless wr. Id be cool in the 4th. More late career ricky prohel then wes welker imo.

Vernon is a good player who played in pro-ready system, meaning that, he's going to be able to come in and contribute right away because he knows NFL routes, progressions, reads, etc.

However, he's going to need to bulk up.

He's not fast enough to play the speedy type of slot receiver people are thinking he could be able to play. That's just not his game. He's going to be more of a "sit in a zone and catch a pass for 7 yards" type player. In which case, he's going to need to bulk up. He could take those hits (or make guys miss) playing against the ACC teams of the world, but in the NFL, he isn't going to be able to do that for long.

I'm a huge UNC fan and I would love to draft him.

When it comes to my pro teams, I couldn't care less where they went to school as long as they can get the job done.

Agreed he's a solid slot receiver... I was just explaining why they were arguing lol
