#3353605 PFF Ranks Top 10 Defensive UDFAs

Pro Football-Focus does not do a ton of college player grading, so take this for what its worth.  They note that our UDFA Peters was their highest rated CB in the draft:

 

Garry Peters, CB, Clemson, Carolina Panthers

While White and Hill impressed, it was Peters who finished the season as our highest-graded cornerback. Allowing a mere 233 yards in coverage all season, allowing a mere 0.62 Yards Per Coverage snap in 2014. He needs to work on not being as grabby with contact, something he’ll be flagged for much more in the NFL, but Peters is a rough diamond who could develop really well in Carolina if given time.

#3353256 What do we do now with Nate Chandler?

Posted by Leeroy Jenkins PhD on 03 May 2015 - 04:10 PM

Chandler will make this team.  You all seem to forget that last year he signed a 3 year extension for , $7.95 million.  Cutting him this year will result in 1.1 million in dead cap.  Where as cutting him next year will only result in 400K.  

 

He can play 4/5 o-line positions and can probably play DT in an emergency situation.  

 

Quote me on this.  There is no way Chandler is not on the final 53.

#3352848 Just a quick trip down memory lane...

Hard to have flashy drafts when you are always making the playoffs and picking late in each round.  

 

Maybe if we missed out on the playoffs like the other teams in the division we could have one of those top drafts.   Oh well, here is to the 3-peat!




#3352827 La'El Collins may be in play after all

Feel free to tweet @70LaelCollins and let him know he has a home in Carolina when all this is over. 




#3352112 What's your worry?

Posted by Leeroy Jenkins PhD on 02 May 2015 - 08:35 PM

The draft can't fix the fact that we have Mike Shula as our OC. 




#3352043 Clemson CB, Garry Peters to the Panthers

Posted by Leeroy Jenkins PhD on 02 May 2015 - 08:09 PM

Had Peters been our 5th round pick and Mayo the UDFA, I don't think anyone would be upset. 




#3352014 La'El Collins may be in play after all

Posted by Leeroy Jenkins PhD on 02 May 2015 - 07:59 PM

Maybe bringing in La'El as an UDFA was Gettleman's plan all along.

Pretty honest draft recap by Ed Hardin:

 

They could do nothing and hope a tackle fell to them at No. 25 or they could trade up, using some of the nine picks they had when Thursday began.

 

They chose the former.

 

When the last decent tackle fell from the board at No. 24, the Panthers were exposed.

 

Gettleman would later say they had left tackle D.J. Humphries and the athletic Shaq Thompson as the next two names on their board when the Cardinals announced Humphries as 24th pick. So the Panthers took the next player on their list.

Thompson is a linebacker. Now you can make any argument you want to, but there’s no arguing that Carolina was already set at linebacker. In fact, the Panthers needed more linebackers like Charlotte needs more traffic.

We’ll ignore some of the pre-draft analysis of Thompson’s abilities, the part about him not being able to shed blockers or the part about him being a third-round pick on some draft boards. We’ll wait to see how it works out. But this was a desperate move by a team that waited too late to make a move.

 

That would come later once Gettleman realized his entire board was disappearing before his eyes. “Picked clean” was the way he put it.

So when Friday rolled around and Carolina was looking at eight more picks from a draft that offered almost zero long-term options for the Panthers, they started trading up like madmen. Carolina’s second-round pick was the 57th overall before Gettleman gave it up along with the Panthers’ third-round pick and their sixth-round pick to move up to No. 41.
