#2729158 Ricky Proehl and Don Gregory having dinner with WR Lattimer

Posted by BigBeezy on 06 April 2014 - 06:13 PM

Really impressed with this guy. A very fluid athlete that high points the ball. He's also a natural hands catcher. He'd be a very good pick up in the 2nd-3rd round but I could see someone like the Pats or Seahawks snatching him up as a surprise pick in the 1st. Kid has all the tools.

#2688979 OT Anthony Collins Deciding Between Car, TB, Cin

Posted by BigBeezy on 12 March 2014 - 10:05 PM



I don't know much about the guy.  Anyone have insight? 


He's the tackle I've wanted us to target, even before FA started. He's been a spot starter in Cincy but has played well when he's played (gave up 0 sacks in 7 starts in '13). He also provides versatility as he can play LT and RT.


The Bengals are hoping they can re-sign him so they can move Andrew Whitworth to LG permanently. Really hope we make this happen.

#2664908 Bill Voth claims Jordan Gross is done

Posted by BigBeezy on 24 February 2014 - 09:49 PM

If true, I say we target both Anthony Collins and Geoff Schwartz in FA. Collins can play both LT & RT, Schwartz can play both OG and RT. They both graded out well on PFF and wouldn't break the bank. Collins didn't allow a sack in '13.

This would allow us to still go BPA without reaching for an OT. If we draft an OT that's ready to start, Collins can move to RT (or stay LT depending on the prospect). Schwartz could then bump down to challenge for starting spot at RG (or remain at RT if needed).


Versatility is the key.

#2339460 Panthers sign Wharton

"3. Geoff Schwartz - to KC: 1-year, $1.2m

2012 Grade: +5.8
2012 Snaps: 160

Summary: We called for Schwartz to receive more playing time all season as he was stuck in a one-sided platoon with guard Brandon Fusco. Schwartz played at least 10 snaps in eight different games, though 36 was his season high and he rarely saw the field for more than a short cameo. Fusco, on the other hand, started all 16 games while posting a -11.9 overall grade including a -13.6 in pass protection. Schwartz outplayed him in all facets — he surrendered only four pressures on his 84 pass blocks, while posting a +5.1 grade on his 75 snaps as a run blocker.

Schwartz will now have a chance to find full-time work as he heads to free agency. He has more than just this season’s small sample size to work off, as his last starting gig was in 2010 when he graded at +19.3 at both right guard and right tackle for the Carolina Panthers. It’s a safe bet that Schwartz will be on the field for more than 160 snaps in 2013."


Not sayin' PFF is the end all be all but the numbers don't lie...just sayin'. I lobbied for us to sign Schwartz at the beginning of free agency. Hopefully he becomes a cap casualty with KC being pretty strong on the OL or he can be picked up in a trade. He'd definitely be an upgrade over Bell and at worst could provide depth at both tackle and guard.


#2339330 Panthers sign Wharton

Posted by BigBeezy on 25 August 2013 - 08:26 PM

Anyone up to date with Locklear?


He suffered a nasty ACL tear in Week 13 last season. If he's recovered from that injury, he wouldn't be a bad option to look at.


At least to add some depth. He was a quality starter in the league for years and he's from NC.

#2189666 visits and workouts

Posted by BigBeezy on 09 April 2013 - 10:58 AM

3 more to add to the list: I wouldn't mind any of these guys. Real high on Williams and Jones.

Tony Pauline@TonyPauline2h
Sylvester Williams/UNC, Akeem Spence/Illinois, Datone Jones/UCLA all drawing lots of interest from Carolina Panthers: http://www.TFYDraft.com

From the link:

- The Carolina Panthers are expected to select a defensive tackle sometime during the draft’s initial three rounds. I am told the team brought Sylvester Williams/North Carolina in for a visit and has worked out Akeem Spence/Illinois and had dinner last night with Datone Jones/UCLA whom they are working out today.

#2188884 DeAndre Hopkins visiting Panthers today

Posted by BigBeezy on 08 April 2013 - 01:17 PM

I wouldn't be mad at all with Hopkins at 14. Like others have said, if he's your guy then take him.

Trading down would be ideal, not because he's not deserving of being taken at 14, but for the simple fact that we only have 5 picks and could really use some extra picks. This would mean possibly netting an extra 2nd or a 3rd and some other picks.

#2179739 Kawann Short

Posted by BigBeezy on 28 March 2013 - 03:42 PM

Short has the ability to be the best DT to come out of this draft but must learn to give maximum effort on a much more consistent basis.

I'd love for him to be our pick at 44.

#2170811 Ted Ginn joins the Panthers on a one-year deal

Posted by BigBeezy on 21 March 2013 - 06:16 PM

Ginn has the ability to put up better numbers than Louis Murphy and Legedu Naane as a WR and he's dangerous in the return game.

I see this as nothing but a positive. Good, cheap signing.

#2156729 DT Jenkins signed with Giants...

Posted by BigBeezy on 11 March 2013 - 07:51 AM

I mentioned this in another thread but I believe that the FO is focused on re-signing Dwan Edwards as our vet DT and the Jenkins deal (3 yrs., $8 mil w/ $3 mil guaranteed) just set the market for what it will cost to re-sign him or possibly pick up Canty i.e. vet DTs 30 yo+ with similar production.

#2155544 Icege's Post-Combine Draft

Posted by BigBeezy on 09 March 2013 - 09:38 AM

Really solid draft. Would have no complaints about this at all.

#2155539 Danny amendola

Posted by BigBeezy on 09 March 2013 - 09:26 AM

Amendola is basically a poor man's Wes Welker. He runs a lot of short, underneath routes. Definitely not gonna stretch the field, which is a big part of our offense. Honestly, I'd expect him to end up in New England if they can't re-sign Welker and he doesn't re-sign with the Rams. He'd be much cheaper than Welker but provide the same skill set.

He'd be a decent pick-up for us but he wouldn't be my first choice of the FA WRs. Doesn't really fit our scheme, IMO.

#2121719 Xavier Rhodes as a safety prospect?

Posted by BigBeezy on 02 February 2013 - 12:35 PM

I'm a big fan of Xavier Rhodes. I think he's one of the top 3 corners in the draft right behind Milliner and Banks. He's really good in man coverage and should remain at CB in the pros but having the size to play FS definitely adds to his value. I also don't think he makes it to the 2nd round unless he has poor workouts.
