I can't tell if this thread should make me optimistic about our scouting department or deflated about our roster.  Going to be some good training camp battles though.

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

 

It's a testiment to the quality of guys that make it on a NFL roster...other than Clausen and Fua...  :)

I think Lester will not only make the team, he'll be a big contributor. Rivera also likes White. Considering our lack of playmakers in the DB, they've both got a good  chance to stick.

 

"After signing several defensive backs in the veteran free agent market prior to the draft, the Panthers signed safety Robert Lester and cornerback Melvin White – a pair of rookie free agents - after the draft. The DB duo debuted Friday at the team's rookie minicamp.

"Those two guys really showed well today," Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said. "I really like what Robert Lester did, and I really liked Melvin White. He's another guy that we felt had a chance to get drafted."  http://www.panthers....8f-170175fec3a5

lester makes the team i think. we're incredibly deep at DT so i see gaydosh being stashed on the practice squad.

I think Lester makes the team. But the numbers are against the other two. If we keep 5 DTs Gaydosh has a chance. I don't see White making the 53 though.

All aboard team Lester/Gaydosh!!!

These guys making the team would end the reign of terror that has been the Naka/Fua embarrassment.

I don't think Fua makes it, even if Gaydosh doesn't make the cut. I think the Cole addition pretty much ended his time here.

How do you know your team hasn't been in the playoffs for 5 years?  You get excited about undrafted free agents making the roster.

Why is being excited about finding a "diamond in the rough" a bad thing?

 

The Giants won 2 Super Bowls and I bet their fans were excited when Victor Cruz made the roster.

 

Obviously, I am not comparing our UDFAs to Cruz but you never know.

a little bit of both.  We had incredible holes to fill after last season, and it looks like

we've done a very good job of filling as many as possible.

 

As far as scouting, everything looks good now, but we won't know till after next season.

Of course, finding a diamond in the rough is not a bad thing.  Every team has a few guys that were overlooked in the draft and ended up making a big difference.

 

I'm just noting that you know your team has been bad when the fans are hoping undrafted free agents make the roster.

we are not a bad team. we have some bad players that we hope to be replaced by the UDFA like gaydosh and lester. Every fan hopes to upgrade their teams depth through UDFA and the draft.
