as a South Carolina fan, this would make me happy. Ellington is not tall for a receiver but he is feisty and was a deep threat for Carolina while he played there. and since Munnerlyn left, we need a Gamecock to fill his spot. ;)

I think any WR would be a fit with us. Yes I do like Ellington though.

If the Huddle were the Panthers' GM, every draft pick would be from UNC, South Carolina or Appalachian State.

I don't care where they went to school, my sole concern is how they contribute to the Panthers.

I'm a huge UNC fan, but my love for Hurst has nothing to do with that.

Just a general point. Most of our threads every offseason leading up to the draft are as thus:

 

What about (position of need) (player name) from (South Carolina, UNC or Appalachian State)?

 

Thread contents: (player name if from USC or UNC) had some big numbers and he's got good measurables, why not go for him in the (low number) round?
 

Thread contents: (player name if from Appalachian) would be a good choice to take a late-round flier on, he did really well against (D-I team that throttled Appalachian).

I hate that because steve smith was our all time best wide receiver that all reporters think we need a replacement that fits the same physical attributes. "Well steve smith was great for them so of course they want every receiver that is 5'9 and has a fiery attitude. "

The reason I bring his name up is not because he played for a university in the Carolina's, but he is the poor man's version of bradin cooks. I know a lot of people are high on cooks and would like to see us draft him in the first round, but after watching his performance against Oregon, and seeing all the dropped passes that he had I would feel more comfortable going OL in the first and picking up Ellington on day three.
Both have similar size and speed (cooks offical was 4.3 and Ellington's unofficial was 4.3 at the combine). I think either one could come in and help fill the Steve smith void, te big difference to me is one is a day one guy and the other is a late round guy(like smith) that would allow us to plug some holes on the OL first.

I agree with going oline 1st since the wr depth is there in the draft ..

All I'm gonna say is Bruce is clutch player. He does the job when it matters most.
