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

Posted by Leeroy Jenkins PhD on 03 May 2015 - 11:05 AM

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?

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




#3352043 Clemson CB, Garry Peters to the Panthers

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

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.

#3350045 Carolina Panthers Trade Up Select Oklahoma's Daryl Williams

Posted by Leeroy Jenkins PhD on 02 May 2015 - 11:26 AM

Daryl Williams is an experienced veteran at right tackle who projects as a starting-caliber player in the NFL.  While he lacks elite athletic traits to suggest All-Pro potential, he has the kind of size, length and baseline athleticism  to suggest above-average success as a starter.  He didn’t look good on an island during drills at the 2015 Senior Bowl, and that is likely to drop his stock a bit.  But on film, he plays with a tough, aggressive and intelligent style that teams will find appealing.   His scheme diversity is an added plus, as his all-around skill set will make him a fit in either a ZBS or in-line power game while also offering the kind of talent in pass protection to help keep a starting quarterback upright.  Daryl Williams won’t be the first tackle drafted, but he will have a long and reliable career as a solid starter on the right side for several years.

GRADE:  7.5 (Second Round
