With our offense switching to 12 personnel...

Would it make sense drafting Kelvin Benjamin and playing him as a tweener?  Our offense will be deadly... Most of the time he will draw coverage's by LBs and Safeties and both are mismatch. 

 

Chud ran 12 personnel with Olsen and Shockey.  Our basic formation this year will be:

 

WR1-TE-LT-LG-C-RG-RT-TE-WR2

--------------------QB

--------------------RB

 

Another option is to get a speedy WR in 1st and Troy Niklas in 2nd.

 

12 Personnel offense can also help a lot with bad LT and RT (our current issue).  

 

12 Personnel does not require to have a #1 WR because TE's will likely have more catches.

Saying we're switching anything is a massive assumption. Dickson could flat out be a back-up with 0 two TE sets.

I get the feeling Gettleman will turnover every stone to find talent..  The obvious downside will be in blocking but if he can find a guy who can get separation in the passing game I think it should be welcomed with an open mind.

Why assumption when Shula said we're switching?

 

PS: Dickson is a back-up... he sucked in Baltimore for the past 2 years and failed when he got a chance to shine.

I'll tell Shula when we're switching or not.

Panthers OC Mike Shula plans to use more "12 personnel" formations this season, with two tight ends and one running back.

It's one way to help mask Carolina's wide receiver deficiency, as the "12" package only utilizes two wideouts. The Panthers signed Ed Dickson to complement Greg Olsen in the short term, but Dickson is a flawed player. We would not be surprised if Carolina targeted tight ends over wide receivers early in May's draft. Notre Dame TE Troy Niklas could be on their radar at No. 60 overall.

12 personnel huh? That should shut some ppl up. We're going back to the prolific passing Cam Newton this year. I mean that's what he was with two tight ends right? I'm down.

Am I the only person scared of Benjamin in the 1st? He's got potential obviously, but I don't think he shows it next year. We need a player in the 1st who is coming in ready to perform.

We still need a burner as our #1 WR

 

Speedy #1 will require double coverage with Safety over the top.  This means LB will have to cover TE... a mismatch and likely 1st down.

 

If they play nickle defense then you just pound the ball down the middle with Tolbert.  190lbs nickle trying to tackle 260lbs running back is still a mismatch.
