- Gettleman told Richardson the morning of the 2nd round of the draft, that if KK was there in the 2nd round he was going to get him

- He thought the Panthers did well in UFA market

- Thinks that there are good young players on the roster, mentioned J. Norman and J. Thomas

- Said possiblility to add/upgrade roster is still there

- Emphasized his pass rush

- He didn't think Edmund was a reach at  4th round and he dominated at the Div II level

- The hosts teased Gettleman for saying Kenjon Bah-nah (Boston accent)

- Credits an old scout named ***** Sagel (sp?) for giving him the term "Hog Mollies"

- On Barner - Homerun speed, with the ball in his hands "the fun begins", ideal 3rd down back, needs work on his technique

- He said you can never have too many good players at one position

- He said, right now Deangelo is on the roster and right now none of us know if we will be here tomorrow (hint, hint)

- He said he thinks they have a good shot of the playoffs and teams change quickly in the league

- He hasn't had time to find a good deli in Charlotte yet

- He gave much respect to Smitty and Lafell, is happy with bringing in Hixon and said he can play any WR position and can add to the return game, Ted Ginn can take the top off of coverage and is explosive in the return game, he acknowledge Ginn needs to work on his hands but noted that his hands are "good enough"

- Joe Adams is coming along nicely

- Added another guy with 4.2 speed ( i missed the name)

- When asked if we would add another tight end as Joe Person indicated, he said that they would wait til OTAs to see where they are at.

Heard that Gettleman and the Panthers liked KK so much, they flew him twice to Charlotte in one single day. How did we not catch that as a sign that he was going to be the pick at 44? Lol

I think we all can see it. I just hope it's next year. We need as many playmakers as we can. And I rather give away and play against a year older Dwill.

I think the Deangelo comment implies that if we got a trade offer we would take it. I doubt it means he will be released this season.

 

Also thank you for posting the summary.

To add to the last two bullet points: 4.3 speed wr he mentioned was Jacksonville State's James Shaw.

Said 2 days into OTA's shows Ginn has "good enough" hands and they feel good about him. Spoke about possible expanded role in the offense for Ginn taking the top off and acknowledged his incosistant hands. Also mentioned sometimes guys get penalized bc they were "overdrafted" and never lived up to their draft position while speaking on Ginn.

When asked about possibly adding TEs he reverted to his "the answer is sometimes on the roster" he spoke about Nelson Rosario being a big strong kid who can contribute... would lead one to speculate that he is going to get a major opportunity to get a job while they will evaluate FA talent at the position.

Asked about having the on paper toughest NFL schedule he answered, "They have to play us!" credited Rivera for that swag.

When asked about drafting secondary he said he felt the roster has guys that developed and improved : mentioned DJ Campbell specifically and J Thomas..then added "you don't know what a good pass rush does for a defense.." -love that.

I have to say Gettleman seems to have a direct plan, vision and stays disciplined and I am real comfortable with him running the show.

He seems like he will not be afraid to make tough calls to secure the long term future for the teams success.

Hurney managed the draft as if he was using a draft guide that was outdated so it had some picks we all loved with big names(Clausen, Jarrett, Everette Brown) bc most of us loved immediate post draft Hurney if your honest with yourself.

I think that most of us saw the interest in KK and knew he woudl be in play at #44.  What surprised everyone was taking him there after they took Star.

He mentioned a 4.4 speed receiver we signed. Josh Lucas? Or something like that. Anybody catch the name of the kid?

Edit: NM, just saw Tantric's post.
