#2741048 SI's top 10 CBs

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on Yesterday, 11:15 AM

I want Fuller really bad but if we can get a Top 5 WR or OT/OG in the first, then I wouldn't mind taking Desir in the second. I love that kid's size, athletic ability and physicality

Kouandjio is not worth a first round selection.

What really grinds my gears is that both Allen and Jeffery were Carolina boys. I really, really hope Hicks doesn't go off under Luck. That will just make it a sweet trifecta.


Nicks didn't want to be 'the guy' here. Why would we need another player with a LaFell-esque mentality?


#2740271 Telvin Smith visited today

Beat me to it.. would take him as BPA in the third or 4th..


Third or fourth? Smith will be long gone by then.

I don't care if the underwear olympics has him labeled as an average WR. Not everyone is a workout warrior. What counts is the on-field production. This is why we're here posting about potential studs and not working for an NFL front office.


#2739297 John Clayton Weighs in on our talent at Receiver

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 14 April 2014 - 06:37 PM

I could care less honestly but one small nitpick. Why is it that we 'elected' not to bring back LaFell and Ginn while Welker was a free agency casualty? Reports were saying that The Panthers were interested in re-signing LaFell. Quite simply, The Patriots overpaid for LaFell and The Cardinals made Ginn a very gracious offer.




#2739258 According to PFT Panthers have interest in Sidney Rice

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 14 April 2014 - 05:46 PM

Yeah, don't expect anything. He's filling up the holes to go straight into the draft with his BPA philosophy. DE, DT, WR, OG, CB, OT, OLB, and FS/SS are all at play here.

It's such a shame Jack Gleeson is gonna step away from acting after this. He's so damn talented. I still remember him as that kid from The Narrows in Batman Begins.

 

Have a great journey in whatever makes you happy, Jack!




#2738049 Number One Receiver vs Two Tight End Sets

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 13 April 2014 - 11:18 AM

Idk how, he's clearly a better blocker and his stats are better then pretty much everyone but Ebron. His Yac is higher then Asj, higher catch average, ran deeper routes... I could go on...


More yardage doesn't equal better. That's like saying Te'o is a great LB just because he got more interceptions than Luke. Niklas plays for Notre Dame. All of their prospects appear impressive until they square off against the bigger competition.

You say look at his stats, okay. I watched him play good defenses in Michigan State and Stanford and he was nowhere to be seen. I didn't watch much of him after that. Thus why he's not being viewed as a Top 3 TE in all circles. Stats and size are nice but... again... he played for Notre Dame. Like they warn for soccer jerseys, careful while measuring because you're gonna end up with a medium instead of a large.


#2738021 Number One Receiver vs Two Tight End Sets

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 13 April 2014 - 10:12 AM

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE double TE sets... I just think that unless Ebron falls, which ain't happening, we're gonna go into the season with what we have at TE, and could sincerely see us waiting a while to address WR... Not saying I agree with it (really would just have to wait and see how the pieces fall on draft weekend), but drafting where we do, it's plausible to see us waiting to hit the WR position in the early-middle rounds...


Uhhhh... Ebron isn't the holy grail of TEs. Guys like Seferian-Jenkins, Lyerla, and Fiedorowicz could do some damage in our system too. Lyerla might be a long shot because of his baggage but he's just as impressive as Ebron as a weapon, and ASJ and Fiedorowicz are big boys who fight for extra yardage and block in the trenches.


#2737685 Panthers meeting with...a center from USC

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 12 April 2014 - 07:18 PM

I'd take him in the second in a second, but I can't see him lasting that long, especially with all the teams that need OL help. Two of my favorite words associated with OL- mean streak.

 

Unfortunately.

 

I want him to bring his mean streak to Carolina. He's a quiet guy off the field but he'll get in your face once the game starts. I'd start him at LG and send Silatolu to RG (since he's better at run blocking). Too bad it likely won't happen.




#2737067 Nfl dumb asses say Tampa will win the division bc of their superior defense

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 12 April 2014 - 02:02 AM

Tampas defense is beastly...adding Michael Johnson to go with Mccoy, David, and that secondary with Lovie's coaching is going to be tough.

I feel like they will make a huge leap next year. They still have to draft guys like we do and have less holes.


Johnson isn't a top level pass rusher. He benefitted from Atkins. So I'm not worried about that addition at all. I seem to remember The Huddle and C-S-R overracting to the Goldson signing too. How that turn out? Seems like I was right -- overrated paper tiger signing. Outside McCoy, David and Verner, that defense doesn't scream elite.


#2736984 Which Defensive Unit are you More Confident In? (CB vs S)

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 11 April 2014 - 10:12 PM

I like White's and Dockery's size and upside, and Cason in the slot. I'll go with CB.




#2736982 Nfl dumb asses say Tampa will win the division bc of their superior defense

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 11 April 2014 - 10:07 PM

Yep. The moment Rivera left their defense dropped back down to the 20s in rank. Lovie is no defensive genius.

 

Exactly. He's a decent coach but he's not the defensive guru some people make him out to be. Chicago fans will be the first to tell you that.

 

I was sarcastic when I said their defense was superior if this comment was directed at me. If your talking about the analysts, yeah idk why they think tampa's d is so good.

 

Yeah, that wasn't directed at you. They have 2-3 great players on that defense. We have 6 at the end of the day.




#2736976 Nfl dumb asses say Tampa will win the division bc of their superior defense

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 11 April 2014 - 09:57 PM

Superior defense?

 

1.) They don't possess our front seven. McCoy and David are studs though.

 

2.) Rivera was the biggest reason why Chicago became a defensive juggernaut in the first place; not Lovie.
