Carolina Panthers select G Edmund Kugbila

Recommended Posts

Yes because Eric Reid was such a wise pick in the first round.

I agree with you here that that was a bit of a reach.

But, other than that, you gotta admit San Fran is kinda killin' it in this draft, no?

Well either way I don't think, even if Kugbila is a miss, it's going to destroy us. Until he has a record of misses I'll trust his opinion on what a good player looks like.

I'm speaking more to the fact that there's a thin line between confidence and arrogance. If Gettleman is content to constantly go against the grain he better actually be the world beater executive everybody wants him to be. Or he just looks like a cocky old fool.

Yea, 49ers are having a good draft except their first. I don't agree with not only taking Reid with their first pick, but trading up to do it. I know they have to get rid of some picks by trading up, but if I were them I woulda been trading up for Floyd or Cyprien or even Elam. Not Reid.

I think the point everyone is missing is this : is there any reason for gettleman to think this dude wouldn't be available later, like, WAY later

dumb as hell pick that could have been spent on someone that was actually 4th round talent

Unless you have seen every teams draft board there is no way you can say that. He could have been taken with The next pick.

Marty hurney played to win the draft. Gettleman's laying to win football games, and the draft is a tool to make that happen - you see a guy you need to make your football team better, you grab him.

it's a subtle difference in philosophy but an enormous one. I love the pick

Don't know so I can't judge it too much. But we needed bodies on the o-line badly, be interesting to see where we go in the 5th. Rambo or Chris Faulk would be nice

The fans never fail to amaze me with their the morning after Friday night comments.

One note on the Scouts, Inc. and NFL.com scores, they basically knock off 15-20 points for all players from lower divisions anyways.

IDK why everyone is thinking this guy is a reach. Can everyone not tell by even the first freaking round that every talking head in the media had absolutely no fuging clue what they were talking about? Barkley went in the 4th. Manuel first QB taken. Geno in the second and could have fell ALOT further if not tempted by the shitty Jets. Floyd and all the receivers falling like rocks.

We don't know what other teams draft boards look like, this guy could have very well been taken right where other teams were looking at him. I know we are all still salty about the Armanti reach - but Hurney was a journalist with a slight obsession over local talent. This is a completely different situation.

I've heard the Packers were very interested.
