The Panthers will almost certainly be looking for a wide receiver in the later rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft.


I hope they take a good long look at Jared Abbrederis out of Wisconsin. If he had to be compared to an NFL wide out, it would be none other than Panthers WR coach Ricky Proehl.


Like Proehl, Abbrederis doesn't have elite size or speed. This is why he is projected as a late 4th round prospect (Proehl was drafted in the third round). He measure in at 6'1 and 195lbs, just like Ricky.


But also  like Proehl, Abbrederis brings all the intangibles to the table.


First of all, Abbrederis went from being a walk on to a number 1 receiver. Think about that. Walking onto a major football program and developing into a number 1 receiver while catching balls from guys like Russel Wilson. He leaves the Badgers as one of the most productive receivers in school history. That, my friends, is impressive. 


He didn't do it by running faster than the other guys, but by running smarter. Abbrederis may be the smoothest route runner in the draft. His hands and field awareness are also second to none. Scouts use words like coachable and savvy when describing him.


The best shot this kid has in making an impact in the NFL is with the mentoring of Ricky Proehl. Lets hope he gets that chance.

I really like Abbrederis. He was always terrifying corners and making them look silly with nothing more than good old-fashioned route running. And his physical skills are underrated, he's got a lot of quickness even if he doesn't burn you. Made a ton of tough catches too.

So my new Job is down in Atlanta. And everyone flys in from their home on Mondays. For me that's Raleigh. But for 6 or 7 people that sit around me its Madison.

They love and I mean LOVE this kid.

Of course they also think that Russel Wilson is a Badger QB so....

He is as "ready to play" as anyone.  A technician.  I would take him in the middle of the draft and feel like I stole something.
