#2740387 CBSSports.com's Panthers Draft Spotlight

Posted by nagai on 15 April 2014 - 08:25 PM

So the highest rated player they "recommend" for us is 36th on their own board.


And they expect us to use the 28th pick on him?


Or the 60th?


Doesn't make a lick of sense.


Most analysts don't know that Gettleman favours BPA. This is why I don't take a lot of these projections seriously -- they literally just try and match needs with their boards, without any considerations for scheme or drafting philosophy.

#2739282 According to PFT Panthers have interest in Sidney Rice

Posted by nagai on 14 April 2014 - 06:10 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.


This is what I keep trying to tell the huddle. Ah well, if they don't listen, they don't listen.

#2730612 Panthers Sign Avant to 1 Year Deal

Posted by nagai on 07 April 2014 - 07:09 PM

I don't know how to feel about this. Beggars can't be choosers, but still. Why not wait until after the draft?

Because Gettleman's offseason strategy is to patch up positional needs the best he can with FA's, which sets you up to pick the BPA in the draft. It's the same strategy he used last year.

#2728614 Marqise Lee Visiting Panthers

Posted by nagai on 05 April 2014 - 11:52 PM

Hold your horses gentleman, were these stats based solely on the 2013 season? The writer didn't make this clear. If that's the case, that's hardly sufficient reason to knock Lee a lot lower on your draft board. We know he didn't play well in 2013 -- multiple injuries, bad QB play, coaching changes, and plain trying too hard all played a part in his lower production. The only type statistical analyses of Lee I want to see involves his 2012 stats as well, not just 2013.

Daniel Synder always gets what he wants.


Except for a winning football team with consistent success.

But even BPA has limits.  


This is true, but it's limits are just a lot looser than what the fans seem to think.

#2723896 Updated: Mayocks Top 5 at Each Position

Posted by nagai on 01 April 2014 - 05:27 PM

Rankings of interest:


1) Kyle Fuller as the 2nd best corner, behind only Gilbert


2) Yankey as the best guard


3) Botiono as the 5th best offensive tackle

#2721864 Tyler Vagyler Mock Draft

Posted by nagai on 31 March 2014 - 01:30 AM

No LT. 


Fug no


If you're really that inflexible, you're going to get a rude awakening on draft day. Chances are, not all our positions of need are going to be filled, even the ones in the worse shape often slip through the cracks.

#2718963 Ron Rivera: Panthers may not need number 1 WR in 2014

Posted by nagai on 27 March 2014 - 10:47 PM

I think you guys are taking this coach-talk a bit too seriously. They want to calm the fans down after the meltdown -- it's just common sense. I don't think the Panthers are done with the WR position. We can all freak out after the season's done.

#2718960 Trading down. Smart or dumb?

Posted by nagai on 27 March 2014 - 10:43 PM

Depends on the board, and it depends on who's left.


For the Panthers, the thought of trading down is neither smart nor dumb -- it's irrelevant. Gettleman's just not going to trade down.

#2714136 Panthers meeting with Brandin Cooks

Posted by nagai on 23 March 2014 - 11:43 PM

there will never be a smitty 2.0


And people should stop praying for it. It's OK to want a good receiver, but to want a short receiver just because we had Smitty, is blinding.

nagai....where have you been man?


Hiding from the huddle whenever we lose a game :P

#2677872 2014 Draft Rumors Thread

Posted by nagai on 07 March 2014 - 08:41 AM

I don't care what team you're on, your FO is interested in Clowney and Watkins. It doesn't matter if they didn't talk him at the combine, or whatever, they are interested. You just don't see talent like that every day.

#2677322 Jason Verrett Scheduled to Have Private Workout With Panthers Friday

Posted by nagai on 06 March 2014 - 05:08 PM

Neither Lotulelei, Klein, nor Barner were brought in on a visit before the draft. This is just part of the evaluation process, it doesn't mean that we favour Verrett over a lot of other guys. All it means is that he's not completely off the draft board, at this stage. He can still be graded as a 2nd round pick for all we know.

#2676042 Mayocks Post Combine Top 5

Posted by nagai on 05 March 2014 - 05:25 PM

Keenan Allen ran a 4.75 last year and he turned out pretty good for SD.  While it's not to be completely dismissed, straight line speed is not always the best indicator as a lot of players have good "football speed".


Oh c'mon, Keenan Allen was still recovering from major surgery. What's Landry's excuse?
