“They believe in keeping their own, and they believe in the guys that battled for them last year,” Dickson said. “It’s driven in this league to be all business, but when you can find coaches and staff that believe in certain guys and not just want to change it every year, that’s when you can get great things out of your team.” - Ed Dickson
It seems like the mix of Ron Rivera and Dave Gettleman is a winner. Dave says that the players play hard for Ron and respect him. That leaves Dave free to run the football business and make the tough calls. While I'm not saying that either are the best at what they do, I believe that the combination is special. I'm looking forward to this season and next because of what these two are doing together. It feels like there is an adult in the GM chair.
Todd McShay is mocking that we'd take him in the draft... What say people who know more than me?
25) - Ereck Flowers - Carolina Panthers (7-8-1)
COLLEGE: Miami (FL)
Analysis: Flowers has a really good combination of size (6-6, 325 pounds), strength, agility and toughness, possesses great football character and has played both right tackle and left tackle for the Hurricanes the past two seasons. He needs to get better with his hand placement and pad level, but his weaknesses that show up on tape are all correctable. He's a guy who has improved throughout his career and has the upside to continue to do so.
