Randall Telfer is the better of the two USC TE's. That said, X can provide some production both as a pass catcher and as a blocker. He was primarily used in short yardage and goal line situations because he was the better blocker of the two, but he's a solid enough route runner and has decent hands.

Wouldn't mind seeing us take a TE in this draft. Olsen/Dickson/Draft pick could lead to some nice plays and sets for Cam.

 

If we draft one though, seems the Brandon Williams experiment is over. 

 

I don't necessarily see that as the case. Could certainly end up that way but too early to tell. Dickson's contract makes him easy to send on his way if he doesn't pan out. IF Brandon Williams takes a big step during TC and the preseason Dickson could easily be the odd man out.

B Williams is the new Gettis

 

He's had one year in our system. How about give him an offseason to improve and see where he is in July and August. If he doesn't show he can be productive during the preseason by all means send him packing. I don't think that's unrealistic...

Me personally? I would rather give B. Williams another year than to spend a draft pick on a TE. Now, I am assuming we are talking later rounds also. Cuz the ONLY TE we want? Is an early one. One that can push Olsen. Not Dickson.

 

Our 1st 2 picks have to be starter material. I don't see us going TE in this scenario. Most are hoping/hyping for LT, and WR for those 2 picks.

 

Our 3rd and 4th round picks need to be contributors. and heavy rotationally as well. A TE very well could come out of this group. Would pretty much shut the door on the 2TE sets rumor. Signing Dickson for 2 years, then drafting a TE that high? Mkay? Make a weakness a strength and all that.

 

The next TE that joins this team puts B. Williams on Turk alert. If you take 1 1-4 you expect them to play, so B. Williams says thanks for the experience. If you draft 1 later, you are telling him to beat out the rook, and you can stay.

 

Or, you use that pick on a 6th round CB with some return ability, and let B. Will get lots of reps this summer.

 

So, to answer the question. If Gman hits this draft as well as he hit last years. We will be a pretty good team. Cool for me.

 

B. Williams, Pilares, Barner, are all guys the Powers that Be want to take a look at.

I'm hip brother, I'm hip.

He and Pilares, in my world anyboo, have a golden opportunity in front of them. The team really likes them, they know the system by now, they both have potential, and it would take the pressure off of what McNutt, King, and Underwood bring.

Until this sorts itself all out. It will continue to be an entertaining topic. Who should stay, and who should go?

So, the Brandon Williams hype has almost reached Gary Barnidge levels of insane. Almost.

They liked him well enough to not try and stash him on the Practice Squad. The way things are shaping up right now. He is in line to get plenty of reps to show whether or not he is ready to contribute. Can't help if some of us are excited for the opportunity to see what he can bring.

Or to put it another way. Sorry us fans are getting in the way of your precious Panther news.

I don't even know what that means. I get excitement. I also get that people pull for the unknown underdog story, even though the player has not shown signs of anything. Go to training camp. Watch him play. He looks lost. Maybe he changes that this year? Until then, he's going to be Gary Barnidge.
