[Bump/Edit] : I want to see you guys thoughts now… this was from when we were 1-3 and we thought we could get watkins if the season didn't turn around… now that we have pick #28 what do we do

 

 

Who is the ideal pick for Carolina in the 2014 NFL draft?

 

Kelvin Benjamin (WR Florida State University, 6'5" 235lb)

 

This guy is a playmaker, has elite calvin johnson like size, and can just flat out out jump his defender and go up and make a grab.

 

I like to compare him to Vincent Jackson, He can be a poor mans Calvin Johnson, which being a poor mans Calvin is not a bad thing at all.

40 Yard Dash: Low: 4.44  40 time: 4.54  High: 4.64

Unofficial but I read somewhere he has a 35" Vertical

 

Highlights:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTkyr7Qv8mc

 

Sports Science did a segment on his reach: http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=10239292

 

                   

I believe he can be Cam's go to guy for years to come.

 

Is this the ideal pick for the Panthers? if not who is?

Tackle or WR. Depends on our cap and how we fill in the holes before the draft.

 

We have one WR that will be under contract next year. We are gonna be signing a shitload of people in the offseason.

Watkins is my guy at the moment.

I want OT in the second unless we get a FA to fill the void at RT.

I think Watkins is a guy wh makes Tajh Boyd look better than he actually is. He's an animal and freak athlete.

Yeah I'm all in on Watkins, but we also desperately need OL help. Hopefully we can get Watkins 1st, then go OL 2nd, 3rd.

Maybe we plan on trading up. It would be nice to see as long as we dont overpay.

Id like a big 6'4 guy. Need a big target and a jumpball guy in the redzone.

Cam's Qb draws and a tall jumpball guy in the redzone would be awesome.

Watkins was MIA last year....

 

I'll take 708 yards and 3 TDs as "MIA".  The guy broke out his freshmen year and was Clemon's only threat, so he got a ton of passes his way.  Last year Hopkins arrived on the scene and took alot of his touches away.  This doesn't mean that Watkins wasn't getting open, it just meant there were 2 threats on the field.  It's obvious now that Watkins can still dominate, considering his biggest game of the year so far was against Georgia.
