28. Carolina Panthers -- Notre Dame TE Troy Niklas
Wideout and offensive line look like bigger needs for Carolina on paper, but Niklas could assist in both areas as an impact in-line blocker with an enormous catch radius. He goes 6-foot-7, 270 with 34 1/8-inch arms, and is built country strong enough to block defensive ends. As the Panthers are short on wideouts, their base 2014 offense would make heavy use of 12 personnel with Niklas and Greg Olsen on the field together. OC Mike Shula is a proponent of smash-mouth offense, and Carolina could assert its will via this new “two-tight” approach, particularly in the running game.
At first I was like.nooo we need OL, WR. Then thinking about Cam's rookie year when we had Shockey and Olsen. The OL issues, our inability to run the ball consistently. I started thinking, thats some outside the box thinking. It's like 2 for 1. I'm not advocating making this move just saying it's interesting and makes you think. What's your opinion?
