Crief is a top 3 wr in this class

 

Probably only behind watkins and who knows, he may be ahead of him

 

Let's not get carried away.

With the depth at the WR class there is a good chance a WR is BPA at each of our first couple picks.

@JoshNorris: Jordan Matthews first "unofficial" forty: 4.40. 10 yard N/A

Take that man at 28.

 

Damn! Lock him up. His only question mark was his speed/athleticism. He's as polished as the come. 




#2661021 Gettlemen Combine interview

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 21 February 2014 - 03:36 PM

Smitty will be 35 years old going into next season. he still displayes the toughness ,but his abbilities have fallen off the last 2 seasons. i love the man but he will be done soon. this is why WR is the biggest need. we are right there with the jags and jets when it comes to the recieving corps. something has to change. and change now. we can easily be worse on O even with Smitty on the team.

 

Heck, I'd argue the Jags have a better receiving corps than we do. Blackmon + Shorts is superior to any combo we could put on the field at the moment. 




#2660352 Gettlemen Combine interview

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 20 February 2014 - 11:42 PM

according to who? You?

I bet you every huddler can do a draft board, and not one huddler would get their board the same as Gman and company.

 

The guy was/is extremely raw and didn't play division I football. Every single analyst was shocked that he was selected where he was. He didn't get on the field and is now a year behind in his development compared to almost every guy selected in that round last year. Some of those guys drafted right after him were starters and played quite well this past season. Throw in guys that played well on teams drafted in the 5th-7th rounds... and I have a hard time believing he was 100% the BPA. Now, based on potential alone, he could have been. But based on his resume and what he did in college; doubtful. 

 

Let's hear your argument that he was best player available at the 108th overall pick.

Panthers GM Dave Gettleman was my favorite speaker of the day at the Combine. Candidness was a breath of fresh air. Gotta love the accent.

Listening to Gettleman, expect a lot more 1-yr contracts for Panthers.




#2659806 The Official NFL Combine Thread

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 20 February 2014 - 03:51 PM

Gettleman: Even if cap goes to $130M, doesn't mean Panthers will spend to the cap.

At same time, Gettleman repeats mantra last year, that Panthers will draft best player. Says that certainly was case with Star and KK in '13




#2659802 The Official NFL Combine Thread

Gettleman: I promise we are going to take best available in the draft.

 

 

Gettleman: Need to improve secondary and offensively -- mentioned OL depth.

 

 

Gettleman: "It's a big man's game. ... Big men win."

 

 

Gettleman's aim for roster is a mix of "wily veterans" and young players, and of course a quarterback. He reiterates Newton is the answer.

 

 

Gettleman: "We have to be thoughtful with what we do with every player, with every dollar."

 

 

Gettleman says Greg Hardy is "part of the puzzle" but reminds that team is cap-challenged. He'll soon find out if 2014 cap will be larger.

 

 

Gettleman has had 2 lengthy conversations with Jordan Gross, who is in Idaho with his family and still mulling his future.

 

 

When asked about WRs, Gettleman immediately said any other WR is under contract. Didn't say anything about draft

Morgan Moses - @DavisHsuSeattle's guy. Insane measurables - 6'6,314 lbs, 35 3/8" vines, 9 7/8" hands

 

I believe Moses is a dark house candidate for us at 28.
