Gettlemen Combine interview

135 posts in this topic

receivers just don't come out of college playing lights out.

most receivers in the league all develop from somebody's roster. So yes the answer is on the roster but you also never stop looking for another possible answer if its available somewhere else.

according to who? You?

I bet you every huddler can do a draft board, and not one huddler would get their board the same as Gman and company.

 

The guy was/is extremely raw and didn't play division I football. Every single analyst was shocked that he was selected where he was. He didn't get on the field and is now a year behind in his development compared to almost every guy selected in that round last year. Some of those guys drafted right after him were starters and played quite well this past season. Throw in guys that played well on teams drafted in the 5th-7th rounds... and I have a hard time believing he was 100% the BPA. Now, based on potential alone, he could have been. But based on his resume and what he did in college; doubtful. 

 

Let's hear your argument that he was best player available at the 108th overall pick.

analysts are analysts for a reason.

If you want me to come up with a reason that someone in the media supported, you'll be disappointed.

What you are failing to understand, is he was BPA on the Panthers big draft board.

That's the bottom line.

Doesn't matter what you and I think.

I think his point was that we don't know what Gettleman's draft board look like(at least I hope it is) 

 

It is quite possible he was BPA on our board. Because most people(including myself) don't see how he was BPA at that pick, that doesn't actually mean he wasn't on the Panther's board.

I agree with it, games are won and lost at the line of scrimmage. Doesn't matter how many receivers you have if you're running for your life and there's no run game.

 absolutely, it makes our whole offense much better.But nothing wrong with adding weapons along with the big guys. this draft is shaping up to do both and with the x factor of FA we could upgrade the whole team exponentially. now imagine Stew recovering...hmmm

The Answer was always on Hurneys roster until he got canned so....

 

AE, Gattis, etc weren't the answer at WR and sorry but if King or McNutt were they would have contributed here or somewhere else before we picked them up out of the garbage.

 it is a cant lose situation. if they don't work out they are gone. I say worth the risk.

We'll see, but it's been said and done here before(the whole WR is on the roster bs)

 

Gettlemen is a real GM though and he's had one good off-season in his lone year so there is no reason not to trust him, I just don't like hearing that when its almost never true when you have as big of a WR deficiency as we do.

agree with the WR deficiency. As for DG seems to know what he is doing but after one year even if successfull I do have reason not to trust yet. things look good but I will wait and see before I fully trust.

different doesn't mean one is right -BPA is who you like.i would agree Kugbila was a reach especially if you look to see who was left.
