When I worked out with the Panthers, they just wanted me to run the route tree. It's kind of different with college and pros. Some teams want the speed out instead of just chopping the feet, or when you're running a dig route they want you to speed cut it in. The Panthers want a spear route. We had a nice conversation, and then we went in the receivers room and drew up some coverages. They told me they really like me and hope I won't get picked before they pick me.


Take it FWIW, lock if old.

Panther fans better get ready for a non-sexy draft. We're probably going to draft a WR or TE that's not flashy and/or athletic. I sense this is gonna be another trench friendly draft with a DB or two selected along the way.

Prospects are told this type of stuff all the time.  Kids get led to believe they're going to be taken in the 3rd round and end up going undrafted.

I might think they really meant, "I hope nobody picks you.  We aren't either, but would love for you to come in as an undrafted free agent."

 

If I were a GM, I would reserve about half of my visits for players who may go undrafted.  I would establish a rapport with them so they would sign with me the day after the draft.

 

The others? I would see them at the bowl games, combine, and pro day workouts.  The reason I would do this is simple---

 

In the draft, we pick the player.  Afterwards, the player picks us.  White, Horton, Lester---good job last year in this area.  This year I expect to see some OL and WRs, TEs, and RBs.

Who was it said last year the Carolina was the only team that spoke with him and the #1 reason he came here.    I want to say Lester but not sure.

It was White, IIRC.

 

I like Norwood as a 3rd-5th round prospect. He may never be a Pro Bowler, but I think he will be a solid productive NFL WR. I wouldn't take him in the 2nd, but anywhere from the 3rd to the 5th would be great.

I think Norwood may be underrated. He runs good routes and has good hands. I hope he stays overlooked and we can pick him up.

Makes me think they want receivers with some brains.

 

(don't really see that as a bad thing)
