nfl draft Carolina Panthers select G Edmund Kugbila

242 posts in this topic

I didn't know much of the of Kugbila, but I have read a few reports on him and everything sounds promising. If he is someone the scouts and coaches think can play and start it doesnt matter where you pick them. If they felt he would be there later then I am sure they would have waited.... It only takes 1 team to like you to set where you go (EJ Manuel)

Eric Reid is a nice player, great in run support but did struggle last yr in pass coverage. I really liked him and had him as my top saftey, but he needs to be paired with a very good FS to help with deep ball assignments. Jut because he was a 5star out of high school means nothing at this point

All of our Safeties struggled in every area of football last year.

I don't know jackshit about the guy and neither do any of you. I read that we drafted OL and I was happy, so I approve of the pick. It's not like there's really any 5 star amazing can't miss studs in the 4th round anyways.

and you're and idiot if you think this Panther board is bad. Try being on the Carolina Growl board where people could pretty much do whatever they wanted including posting scat and gore and one of the mods was a 17 year old racist kid who would openly admit in private message that he hated black people.

One thing that comes to mind when it it comes to post-draft grades is that teams that rate highly at first usually pick up a few players that were highly rated before dropping in the draft, so their picks seem like steals. But one has to wonder why that player dropped so far in the first place. A lot of receivers went ahead of Patton, and while I think he will be a great pick it's a very curious thing that he dropped so far.

Reid was destroyed in coverage last season yet the Huddle thinks he's a stud.

lol the slammed Vaccaro for that and then love Reid.

Vaccaro is a much better cover safety than Reid is.

Only reason he ever looked good was LSU's secondary was legit, look what hapened when his supporting cast was gone.

Not much to do but hope and pray gettleman knows what he's doing. Risky to take a kid like that when there were some very talented big names left on the board. He must have really wowed them in workouts. Hopefully this works out, we have to get some hits with these late picks if we want to build a contender.

The difference is Gettleman is a football guy. Marty wasn't.

This is the hope, yes. Plenty of football guys have been chumps, and I'll be the first to admit his pride bothers me. His "I've been in this league 30 years I think I know what a good player looks like" comment could be the signpost of what destroys us.

Even if it is a development pick he probably beats Hangartner for the starting job anyway.

if we took tavon austin he prolly could have beat hangman for his starting job.

Some of the people complaining about this OG pick are probably some of the same people who would have picked NT Jesse Williams in the 1st or 2nd round because GOLLY GEE *RATINGS*!!!

Williams was just drafted in the 5th round.

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.

Precisely. I criticized Vaccaro alot but he at least could cover. Reid, on the other hand, lived off Claiborne and Peterson. It was evident this year. Reid struggled all year long.
