Ultimately I want Gettleman to put his 30+ years of experience as a talent evaluator to work and find us the BPA with each of our 5 picks... I'll trust his judgement until he gives me reason to think otherwise.

He's the only safety with even close to a top 15 draft value right now.

Elam is positioned around 30th with Cyprien around 34th or so.

Your talking about the 15th rated prospect compared to two guys rated in the 30's.

It's a pretty big difference.

The only one who had a chance to catch Vaccaro was Cyprien and that was if he ran great through his drills and had solid interviews.

His drills were sub par and I haven't heard any glaringly positive reviews on his interviews either. So he fell back down into the second round because of that.



I know where he's rated (which doesn't mean much) that's why I think he is severely overrated. As I've said, seen more bad, than good in his play, IMO.

This.


If he decides on Vacarro, I'll be pissed, but I'll get over it.

Agreed. Where he is rated by "experts" and where is rated by coaching staffs and front offices could be quite different. We nor the draft analysts were in the interviews with him, on the white board with him, and weren't working out with him privately.

That we will take Tavon Austin if he is available, and if he is not Kenny Vacarro is a very good bet.

As some of you know my source tends to be very reliable and I generally only make one of these every year around draft time. Last year I was told that we were deciding between Coples and Kuechly, and that Bruce Irvin would go in the first.

Also some things he has told me:
DJ Hayden will go in the top 15
EJ Manuel will go in the first round
Matt Elam should be the second safety off the board
Keenan Allen will not go in the first, Justin Hunter should go ahead of him
The Panthers are looking at Arthur Brown/Quinton Patton/Robert Alfrod/Eric Reid/Jonathan Banks in the 2nd
Eddie Lacey probably won't drop to the 2nd


Just throwing some things out there for you guys.


great stuff. interesting that we're not looking at DT.

Trust in Gettleman until proven otherwise.

Even if it is Vacarro...it's a big upgrade over what we currently have.

You may be putting too much stock in people's "sources".
