Does anyone know how Panthers new WR obtained from Miami's Practice squad is doing? With the right amount of coaching, I am wondering if he couldn't be a replacement for  Lafell,if the need occurred.

 

 

ANALYSIS
 

STRENGTHS McNutt is reliable to get his hands on the ball and make a tough catch when it’s thrown anywhere near him. He has good awareness to get open on broken plays and drag his feet along the sidelines. He is a viable possession-type option for quarterbacks looking to pick up a quick first down.
WEAKNESSES McNutt can struggle when running routes across the middle. There are consistency and effort issues when blocking and running decoy routes that aren’t intended to him, and he can struggle off the line if he isn’t decisive and powerful with his first step.

We've grabbed two young WR prospects in recent weeks.  Nary a peep about either since then.  I'm curious too, but I'm certainly not expecting either to develop into starters.

@jjones9: Marvin McNutt left practice today with an ankle injury

This is the last I heard. He tweeted this yesterday afternoon

Here are some pro's and con's about Marvin McNutt. With Ricky Proehl showing McNutt some tricks of the trade and enhancing his skills, he could turn out to be a pleasant surprise.
 

* A converted quarterback with sure hands, McNutt steadily improved and produced in a pro-style offense and has the skill set to excel in a West Coast system. Frame, ball skills and body control enable him to be effective running slants or leaping outside the numbers.
 * Long, big-framed
* Rare leaping ability
* Boxes out CBs
* Concentrates, tracks and adjusts
* Able to control and contort his body
* Makes the difficult and clutch catches

Downside
* High-cut
* Builds to speed
* Could stand to polish route running
* Inconsistent blocker
* Average strength, elusiveness after catch
* Will not factor on special teams

McNutt a replacement for LaFell, you say?

I'm sure he'll be cut tomorrow to make room for Stew.

Our scouting dept has done a nice job in the past picking up guys from other team's practice squads. DT Frank Kearse and DE Mario Addison come to mind.

Our scouting dept has done a horrible job in the past of actually scouting WR prospects, so I'll keep my hopes low.

I will also say, between McNutt and King, I actually think King is probably the better prospect.

Good questions--Gettlemen knows that WRs take a year or two to develop (if they are going to make it) so who knows. 

 

If you can't block in this offense,your chances are slim.

Well if you pay attention on game days you will see that he is inactive.

I agree about King having more potential.  I think it's a Brandon Gibson like ceiling for him so my expectations aren't huge or anything but it'd be cool if he became a contributor.  But the bottom line is the current distribution and personel is working great.

If he can't block(or won't block) then he won't be playing for this team.... move along

Doesn't hurt. Anyone other than AE could probably replace LaFell
