Carolina Panthers select G Edmund Kugbila

Recommended Posts

Well, no one has to start a nickname thread for him. Per an old highlight reel I found on YouTube, he's already called "The African Assassin" :blink:

I LOVE that nickname.

Here is why he was rated so low and picked so high. And why our pick is getting d's and f's from the national media.

2. He has all the tools, but he needs some work

3. Scouts didn't like him too much, coaches loved him. Seems like a hard worker

The sites that rate players often speak with scouts digging for information. I imagine they rarely speak with coaches.

This is a pure potential pick. The possibility to have an elite G in 4 years and the possibility to have depth this year.

Still think it is a baffling pick.

Identifying with us already. Seems he's done a little research if he knows the "keep pounding" motto.

I just realized something: Kugbila is a Patriots type pick. They took Vollmer ahead of his predicted rounds, and he was a foreign import who was not invited to the combine. He was an after thought to their other picks, but became the best player of their class.

All about talent evaluation. Dude could be a D3 player and if he has all the tools can be turned into a good NFL player.

People who think he's starting should get a grip, Hangartner may suck physically, but he has knowledge of the playbook and the terminology in our system. Hangartner will start again, and Cam ends up on IR.
