#2763652 Panthers meet with Ryan Shazier

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 06 May 2014 - 02:59 PM

Not sure I get the Shazier hate. I agree I'd rather grab an OT, WR or CB at 28, but to simply dismiss bpa in a position of some need would be folly. I personally think Shazier is gone by 28, so it probably wont be an issue. As for the hate, watch the tape, he's better than Lavonte David. I wouldn't be surprised if Shazier is off the board at 16 to the Cowboys.

The guy I'd worry about busting the most is Blake Bortles. I really don't understand the hype, sure you see a 6'5" 235lbs prototype QB who put up decent numbers at UCF passing and somehow became a scrambler near the end of the year but some of the comparisons "professional" analysts are making seem to be absurd to me. My favorite comparison is to Ben Roethlisberger, Bortles has half the arm Ben has and most of those "scrambles" he got away with in college would end up with him getting speared by Suh. 


The best QB in the draft will be Teddy Bridgewater followed by Manziel if he gets in the right system behind a good OL and a talented WR. I hated Manziel at first when projecting him a couple months back but I believe it's less dependent on talent, which I think he has tons, and more dependent on coaching and teammate talent on offense. He's going to be a hard bust if you expect him to take control of an offense like Cam but if you let him do what he's best at, you'll get a playmaker. I think Bridgewater has been underrated due to a bad pro day. I look at his tape and to me he goes through progressions better than any other QB in the draft, fragility is my biggest worry with him.


Overall I think it matters less about which QB and more about the situation.

As long as he can pronounce the name of the pick.

None, I'm always right.

#2757758 Who's the big slider?

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 01 May 2014 - 01:14 AM

I think Cooks will slip a bit and we will luck into him, if not my money is on Kyle Fuller if he slips or Joel Bitonio.

Sorry, but every player in the draft will be gone by pick #28.

Do what you do best SCP, poop in it... use your God-given talents man!

Took the words out of my mouth. Drop a deuce in it and return it to the bartender and demand another beer.

The more tape I watch on him the more I realize he'll be a late 1st early 2nd round draft pick.


-Runs crisp routes

-Solid hands

-Great blocking


-Beats press corners

-Possesses adequate if not deceiving speed 


The best tape to watch of him is the Michigan State game where he goes up against one of the best defenses in the NCAA. My favorite play is when he battles against Darqueze Dennard and wins on a jump ball in the endzone. He not only beat the press, but completely boxed out the guy most consider the best press CB in the draft. He also did all this with a steaming pile of poo QB who couldn't place a ball but 1 in 5 throws. It seems like every game he was the go to guy that they should have fed the ball to twice as much. The only knock he really has is he played on an average offense that liked to use bubble screens to combat their lack of skill on the offensive line.


I actually think if OBJ and Cooks are gone by #28 and we don't go OT, the pick will be Latimer.

Wilson probably found out his wife was cheating on him with David Gettleman, but honestly no woman alive can resist the sexiness of nipple shorts.
