Kenjon Barner - our Tavon Austin / Percy Harvin

65 posts in this topic

Does anyone think we might use Kenjon in a way the Vikings used Percy, in the slot some, out of the backfield, just wherever they can get him on the field to help?

The stuff I have seen on the kid, he looks as good as Harvin did coming out of college. I know some people wanted Austin to help out Cam, but this kid is Taller and Thicker than Austin and if he can pick up some route running skills, could be a real steal for us.

Just my 2 cents...

Thatd be nice.

I think he ends up being KR, while Ginn is PR.

The same was said about Pilhares. It doesn't mean anything if the coaches refuse to craft a role for you. I wouldn't expect anybody to go out of their way to make sure a 6th round pick gets a few designed plays. Barner was brought in for depth purposes and we drafted BPA down our board. I wouldn't consider him even on our radar in terms of actual game time until he comes in and proves he can handle snaps up here.

I respectfully disagree.

He's the second fastest guy on the team behind Ginn and has good hands. A good coach utilizes every tool he has. I don't think he's an every down back, but Rivera has been asking for a scat back for awhile now, now he has it.

Also, he may see much playing time in 2014 when we release/trade Dwill, I like to think he'll get his feet wet this season.

I actually see Barner as more of a scat back, Darren Sproles type. I know a ton of people were down on the pick but I think he could end up making a very big impact in year one. Giving Cam the option to throw to RB's in check downs will be critical, unfortunately Williams and Tolbert have average hands while Stewart has stone hands when it comes to catching out of the backfield. I see us using Barner as a check down, screen play back. The fact we drafted Barner gives us flexibility to either cut or trade Williams or Stewart.

should fit in our adaptive system perfectly.

not sure if that spells doom for dangelo this season or next, but regardless should be a nice system back.

    • I was a Marine Brat at Camp Lejeune NC and graduated from CLHS in 1978 and on 28 June 1978 I joined the Navy.  I retired On June 30th 2003 after 25 yrs of Naval Service and have been serving overseas to support our troops ever since. I was in Tikrit when they captured Saddam.  Soldiers from our base were the ones who actually found him.  I have been in places in Iraq called Mosul, Al Asad, and Al Kut,  I have been in Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.  The living hell hole called FOB Shank were incoming was a daily encounter. You see young soldiers who don't even shave yet.  Some look like they lied to get in.  Men and women from every walk of life.  Putting that uniform on.  So needless to say, I am very attached and proud of every one of them.  Whether they know me or not.  Tears fill my eyes every time we lose one. (Just lost one last week). This video, I saw when it was originally aired, still make me water up.   I challenge anybody to show me a more military dedicated team, in ANY LEAGUE, ANY SPORT, that supports the troops like the Carolina Panthers.  I'll give my hated Yankees a close 2nd. ($10,00 ticket with a military ID) **at old Yankee Stadium. Carolina is a class act, plain and simple. Thanks for posting this again,
