How About Some Honey Mustard

17 March 2014 - 06:32 PM

So with it looking like the majority of our new blood at the WR position will be brought in through the draft I wanted to share one of my favorite late round prospects with you guys.

Damian Copeland #7 University of Louisville
1385416627000-USATSI-7541338.jpg
(affectionately nicknamed "Honey Mustard" because of his multi colored hair)


He measured in at a disappointing 5'11" after being listed at Louisville as 6' almost his entire career.  Weighed in at 185 so it seems there is some wiggle room to beef him up.  40 yard dash looks modest at 4.5 flat but the top end speed has never been his strength.  His agility is what makes this guy one of my favorites.  His first step is a blur.

 

I want to take a look at some other numbers he posted that I think would play more into where I think he could excel at the next level:  As a slot receiver.

 

He posted the second highest vertical of any WR at the combine with a 40" vertical.

 

Fastest 3 cone drill at the combine: 6.53 seconds

 

Second fastest 20 yard shuttle at 3.9 seconds (Cooks 3.81)

 

Second fastest 60 yard shuttle 10.84 (Cooks 10.72)

The numbers support that the agility and acceleration are there. He is a great strong hands catcher and has pretty exceptional body control.  He wont be a homerun threat in the NFL but with his hands, agility and ability to cut up field in a hurry there is no reason he couldn't fill a Danny Amendola, Wes Welker slot type role for Carolina.

 

 At Louisville he was the number 3 target in the passing game behind (likely first round pick next year) Davante Parker and (Bridgewater's closest and oldest friend) Eli Rodgers.  In a game where Parker was sidelined with injury and Louisville needed plays (Rutgers) Bridgewater looked to Copeland and it payed dividends.  Watching that game everybody know were the ball was going and nobody could stop Copeland.  

Here are a couple of videos that showcase some of his talents.

 



 



Highest I've seen him mocked so far has been the 6th round with the vast majority being 7th-UDFA.  Would love to take a flier on a great kid and a fantastic athlete.

Yep.  I said it,  Seeing the shock on Brees' face when Mario Williams is jumping over tackles and he's getting abused for a quarter and a half.

 

Tolbert trucking Luke

 

Josh Gordon getting flipped by Ward

 

Charles getting rocked to the head

 

The constant pass rush

 

I'm enjoying it. 


EDIT:  ....until the halftime show.... ew.... now its ruined.  My ears are bleeding.

Taking a look back at last week

22 September 2013 - 04:03 PM

The Green Bay game this week came down to an eerily similar finish as our own collapse against Buffalo.  Had already moved our game to the laptop since it was firmly in hand.  Packers come up short on 3rd down bringing up 4th and inches from the cinci 21 with 1:57 left leading by 3.  I told my girlfriend i was so jealous of her team and that on the road McCarthy would have the balls to go for it.

 

Well they lined up and went for it as myself and the vast majority of the huddle wished we had last week... And then this happened....

While that was one extreme instance what if that had been the outcome?  The Pack lost today by being overly aggressive.  Although I think it was the right call we can't act that it was a foregone conclusion we would have converted in that situation.  Just food for thought.

 

Anyways, lets enjoy this win and look to build a streak after the bye.  Go Panthers!
