You would be mad if we drafted ____ in the 1st?

Please explain how Desmond Trufant is severely overrated lol.

He is the only corner in this draft that plays his man instead of the ball.

Trufant is allergic to contact. Incredible instincts for where the play is going, but doesnt finish plays like he should. Add that to the fact that he isnt even the best cover corner in the draft and his stock should be no higher than late 1st round.

You know who that sounds like? Chris gamble.

I don't care if he doesn't like contact, that can be worked on. And he's a corner so big fuggin deal.

Trufant has some of the best ball skills in the draft for a DB and he's the only corner that plays his man instead of the ball. Not to mention he has the speed to stick with any receiver.

Because he isn't the #1 rated corner means that he won't go until the end of the first? Are you fugging kidding me? Do you ever watch the draft? Do you remember stephon Gilmore last season?

Have fun sucking off Trufant until the draft. Oh and learn to read. I didn't say it was because he wasn't the #1 rated corner, I said it was because he doesn't play tough or tackle, and also isn't the best cover corner of the draft (which would allow him some lee-way in the physicality department).

He has the best ball skills? Are you kidding me? Maybe the best at diagnosing a play, but he actually is subpar in locating and disrupting the ball when it's in the air. I have said it before, he is a poor man's Antonio Cromartie with worse hands. He could be very good, but I just don't see the effort needed to be worth the 14th pick.

Sucking off a player because I think he's worth a top 15 pick like tons of other scouts? Trufant's best attributes an potential out weigh his contact issues. He is definitely one of the better cover corners and has been playing at a high level since he was a true freshman.

Where are you getting your info from?

Vaccaro... think he's the 3rd-4th best safety in the draft.

That's fine, you can have your opinion about his potential being worth the flaws. I personally don't see him as a first round corner. He looks more like a 2nd round developmental guy that is put into packages until he gets better.

I'm getting my info from watching him play and researching different sources that are available. Every year I try to find as much information as I can on prospects at positions of need for the Panthers, especially guys perceived as first rounders, to kind of grasp where the Panthers could go. (Also my opinion seems to be more prevalent among scouts, but not that that really matters. 1st round potential but major question marks in physicality, tackling, and ball skills that send him down the boards). He has been shooting up boards because of the combine and a solid showing at the Senior Bowl, but in games he lacks any kind of consistency. Again, he could be a guy to get much better, but he is a boom or bust guy in the 1st round to me.

For what it's worth I was one of the table pounders last year for Kuechly when others were screaming for Fletcher Cox or Coples or others.

Sheldon Richardson. I actually think he's a really good player, but we've got Dwan back. He's far from a world beater, but he can hold down UT for another year or two, whilst a void still exists at NT. Richardson does nothing to address our run defense problems.
