I haven't seen anyone refer to Kugbila as a "huge reach".

I've seen  couple, but they are either hack wannabe draftniks or pissed off posters in here.

The ones saying reach are the same ones that look at NFL.com and see a 52 draft grade. So they base their opinion off of that score.

And again I agree with you.

Ray you needa be a Mod.

I too haven't seen much hate for Kugbila. I think most people on here are open minded compared to the few. The majority seems to trust Gettleman with his decision in Kugbila. The kid may be a project but that's what most OG in the later rounds are, projects. The good thing for Kugbila compare to Amini is that he won't have to start right away unless he show he can. He will get a year most likely to sit back and be groom.

I'd love to be a mod if all i got was power and didn't have to carry the responsibility or headaches that come with it . it's too much like work.

 

agreed that it's good we aren't forced into starting him right away. I'm tired of rookies starting on the oline. let him get some reps and experience first. let him get s feet under him first. then start him.

I swear your my long lost brother. I just can't find the reason to disagree with you.

I'm pretty sure you guys already know about Kugbila..dude is a very good player. I noticed him in the fall when I was scouting this RB from Valdosta. He constantly dominated his competition

you should get a webby award. Much better than ESPN. I watch anything panthers related, but I actually look forward to listening to hear what you have to say.

    • Im pretty sure he was white as a ghost in the comics bro
    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
