I know one thing: After all that work, at least one of y'all need to give me some pie.  Thank you!

JA is a very smooth athlete, with decent speed. very good route runner, and he killed Brad Roby Ohio St draft stock in one night.

We all know that Rivera loves his LBs, but with the draft still far off, there is still a lot to learn.  If we do take another LB value pick, I think we know what we are in for under Rivera and G-Man:  years and years of elite, young linebacker play.  

 

Now, if we can just get some receivers.

Insurance policy. Look at how well that worked out last season. We didn't think Beason would blow that much at OLB and eventually would be traded.

I would love to have a 6'3 corner on this team

Jean-Baptiste is an intriguing prospect. I'd like him in the second round but I don't think he's first round material. Stanley appears to be limited in the speed and agility department. Based on the few YouTube clips I've seen, if a RB or WR manages to get around the corner Jean-Baptiste becomes a non-factor.

Pretty mediocre article full of regurgitated content. Lacking analysis on your part. Everyone with two good plays at the senior bowl now we need to pick in the first to get them. Four meetings and of course that tells us what gettleman is after.

One note about Abbrederis, who constantly gets critiqued regarding his speed (which is comparable to Jordy Nelson's and faster than Fitzgerald's.) Take a look at how badly he burns Courtney Roby, a speedy, highly-touted corner, based purely on his excellent route technique. This is how you generate separation in the NFL, not just "go that way, really fast." The nice thing is that good route running is much more reproducible than simply running away from another world-class athlete. Just food for thought.

It's not an article. It's a post in a forum that gives Huddlers food for though at worst, and insight at best, as to who the Panthers FO may be---or perhaps should be---interested in drafting. As such, it doesn't require any analysis on my part as it is mostly "regurgitated content", as you say, but still took time and effort to quote, link with other "regurgitated content", and present with a few general observations in a thoughtful manner that hopefully makes it more entertaining and/or provocative for the reader.

hmmmm bet we wouldn't draft a LB in the first three rounds, OT and WR - even CB are too pressing of needs - Klein filled in fine last year and Blackburn wasn't bad either

Abbrederis is a beast.  He reminds me a lot of Eric Decker.

I thought that hit was legal. I don't view that as targeting. This, however,...

Perhaps Victor Cruz 2.0 with a higher ceiling (literally and figuratively)? I'm asking.

Well, I thought of Cruz.
