I'm nowhere near as convinced of this as everyone else on here. I don't think he gives a damn where the team is after he passes, and it's debatable as to whether or not he even should.
People who actually know him and work with him would say otherwise.
We're not talking about a guy who just purchased an existing team here. Jerry Richardson dedicated a pretty significant portion of his life (and bank account) to bringing an NFL team to the Carolinas. This is his baby. The notion that he doesn't care what ultimately happens to it would just be ridiculous.
maybe thier frame filled out later too. . genetically I would think the guy that already shows girth in the 11th grade is superior to one that doesnt show it until sophomore year in college. Not sure bout that though
it's also valid to say the reason he went to a smaller school was because he's from Africa and couldn't adjust quick enough for the SAT's.
which was the valid point. for god's sake nick saban gave the stamp of approval on this guy.
One of the best GMs of all time drafted Ryan Leaf. Heck, plenty of people with real football knowledge believed Robert Gallery would be one of the best linemen in the NFL.
No matter how well-prepared you are or how good your staff is, drafting will always be something of a crap shoot, especially once you get past the second round.
