It is possible that three UDFAs make the team.  All Defensive too.  I think 2 of 3 mentioned below will.

 

Always have to clarify that I know this is without Pads but that is all we have to go by, for now at least.

 

Lester - For whatever reason 32 teams passed on this guy thru 7 rounds.  His times were similiar to Vaccaro's.  I know he chose Carolina over a number of other teams because he felt he could compete for a positon here better than anywhere else.  He has good size, has football savvy and started 3 years at a program that has won 3 of the past 4 National Titles.   I say his chances are pretty high that he will make this team.  Rivera commented on how well he was doing.  When they get him in pads, I think we are going to see why he was a started at the NFL Players factory known as Alabama.

 

Gaydosh - Good measurables.  I was surprised to see the numbers he posted at the Canadian combine.  I think they said he would have been 3rd on Reps at 225 at our combine.  He is strong, quick and seems to get it.  Barring injury of Star, KK, Edwards and Cole, I think he will battle hard and win against Fua for the 5th defensive tackle position. (If we keep 5 DTs)

 

White - Another good sized DCB 6-1 205,  The guy is another Rook that impressed Rivera.  Louisiana Lafayette isn't your football factory but with some good NFL coaching he might surprise someone and make the roster. At minimum as a special teams player and maybe a nickle spot forcing Moore off the team.  I just don't see the need for more than 2 Nickle CBs.  IMO he'll have the toughest time making the team but could very easily show he is better than the bottom portion of our defensive backfield line up.   The only thing that keeps him off the roster is his inexperience.

 

My prediction is

Lester easily wins a spot as a backup Safety

Gaydosh We keep 5 DTs and he beats out FUA for the final DT spot.

White has a good preseason and we'll try to stash him on the PS  (Unsuccessfuly)

 

Offensively do we have anyone that impressed?  The only name I have heard is Bersin and that is only because he is an alum of Wofford.   I like the guy and I am pulling for him.  His chances are slim.

 

Are there any other UDFA that truly have a chance?  Technically all do but any that can seriously challenge for a spot?

 

Go Panthers

I see Gaydosh making the PS rather than the 53.

Do you see us keeping on 4 DTs (Star, KK, Edwards, Cole) or 5 including Fua?

 

Think he will give Fua a run for his money?

I personally think we will keep 4 DT's and 5 DE's this season....both Hardy and CJ can slide inside when needed on passing downs.  that gives us more flexibility on the DLine.

 

Gaydosh is likely heading to the PS.

 

White is ??  I like what we have seen and heard from him.  But, there is a log jam of good young players at DB.  Will be tough to see him unseat one of them for a roster spot.  The DB battle is definitely one to watch in TC.

I predicted this a couple week ago too. 

 

I think this guy was highly accurate.  Just curious if he has the Arm for it or is he just another T. Pike.

I want Fua gone- badly, but I think he'll find a way to stick.

 

Edwards

Star

KK

Kearse

Gaydosh

 

This is what I'd like to see.

From what I understand Cole seems to be his old self again.  Another run stopping DT. 

 

I heard more about Gaydosh than Kearse or Fua combined.  Granted it is shorts but still.

 

I like Star, KK, Edwards, Cole, Gaydosh..

I think Lester and the Canadian make the PS. The rest are gone.

anyone else find it funny that the CFL's #1 pick might not be good enough to make the panthers practice squad

Ah, I forgot all about Cole and I'm really excited about him.

 

So I'd do this-

 

Star- KK- Edwards-Cole and Kearse with Gaydosh to the PS.

 

Gaydosh is too intriguing for me to want to cut. I do think there's a learning curve technique wise, but I think he was the physical tools to be damn good. I like Kearse, but I'd lose him at the expense of Gaydosh if I had to.

Not really. AE should have gone there and been the best thing going in that league.
