14. Panthers - S Johnathan Cyprien, FIU

By the time mid-March rolls around, I expect Cyprien to be a unanimous first-round projection. Sure, some will complain he is listed before Kenny Vaccaro and Matt Elam, but the FIU product has a real chance to be the best of the bunch. Reports surfaced after last year’s draft that the Panthers thought highly of Mark Barron, and although a new GM is in place, safety is one of the positions in need of an upgrade.

It's definitely interesting, to say the least.

Wouldn't take before Vaccaro. Cypriens bigger but Vaccarros quicker and a superior coverage man, and that's what counts in a Safety.

I've never heard of him, but I'll take him because his name sounds cool.

Haven't even seen this guy listed as a first rounder anywhere else. I think he likes to take shots in the dark every year.

Show me where Vaccaro is superior to Cyprien in that department. Kenny was burned by no-names and freshmen this last season. Vaccaro isn't even a true centerfielder. As a safety, you also have to have the ability to tackle -- Vaccaro takes bad angles constantly and can't make tackles in the open field.

I like Cyprien, but 14 is a bit high for him. If we were to draft a DB in the 1st I'd rather have Rhodes or Trufant.

The 49ers, Patriots and Ravens are not skipping him. If The Panthers are truly interested in Cyprien, then they'll have to pick him up earlier.

He's a bigger playmaker than Rhodes, so I'd definitely take Cyprien over him.

I wouldn't mind Alford and Trufant while on the subject. We're gonna need a replacement for Gamble. There's always Hawthorne and Wolff too.

    • I am a 3 percenter. I am white, married, no children, no debt. I have a pension for the rest of my life, and we have a couple retirement accounts to also use at some point. I own the home I live in, I built and own 50% of the house my in-laws live in and we have our place in Mexico.  If you think for one fugging second that anything Trump does effects my life from one day to the next, you are sadly mistaken.  That being said, I'm also a compassionate human being who cares about the quality of life for other human beings. I've been places and seen both the best and worst of how people live all over the world. The GOP has proven time and again over the past 40 years they couldn't give a sh!t less about blue collar, middle America. The working class for the GOP are nothing but the mules who lug their riches to the bank. The backs of the working class bore not only the labor that made assholes like Trump rich, but they are also the backs the GOP stand on to keep their feet from touching the bullsh!t they spew. While racism has always had its place in politics, the GOP has become very overt in their racism and have added that to the mix as well.  Sad part is, many naive, uneducated people who live in this country and who have been the forced labor in the GOP camp for the last 40 years are supporting such a regime. Why? Because they have no nuance for anything but the very basic and will believe the simpleton idea of "building a wall" before they'll try to educate themselves and become literate with the entire immigration reform issue. They'll buy into the anti-Muslim rhetoric and believe they are the terrorists despite the fact they should more afraid of the teenage white kid down the street who spends most of his time playing video games in the basement and reads Nazi blogs on his lunch hour in the high school cafeteria.      
    • @Mr. Scot   I am happy for the good, and sad for the bad, but, I do know you will do alright. Just keep your eye on the prize, and all will be well. You may be losing this family, so you've got that going for you.   Keep Pounding my friend. Keep Pounding.
