In Topic: Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera thinks Stephen Hill ready to help

Yesterday, 02:29 PM

Love to hear it, as I said before, Stephen Hill has the size and speed of megatron

 

What?  No he doesn't.  Johnson is much, much more well-built than Hill, allowing him to out-muscle DBs relatively easy.  

 

Stephen Hill really isn't as fast as some people think he is.  It doesn't translate on the field (maybe because he isn't a good route runner, which means he is indecisive and slow in and out of his breaks).  Similar to how De'Anthony Thomas ran a 4.5 but will dust people on the field.

Smokescreen is such an over-used term.

 

No team is going to waste their time and effort working out with a player just to play off a smokescreen.  That is moronic.  Now if asked about it, will they lie about how impressed they may or may not have been with said player?  Yeah, it's possible.  But if a team works out with a player, it is because they are interested to whatever extent.

Screw the morals part. The issue is a guy couldn't pass a damn drug test that he's known the date of for years. That's just stupid. How can you trust him to not get suspended?

 

Worked out well for Justin Houston and the Chiefs.


In Topic: Dex's OMG no OT in the first 5 rounds mock draft.

Where would you be okay taking him?

 

In this class?  I don't think he should go any higher than the third round.  I am almost certain there will be better receivers available at our pick in the first round, if we choose to go that direction.  I think this draft is so strong at receiver, we could/should (assuming Cooper/White aren't at our pick in the 1st, which they won't be) wait until the 2nd to take a receiver and still come away with a reliable #2 with #1 potential.

 

I liked the direction you took with your mock draft by the way.  You did a good job overall.  I just think that Devin Smith would be a massive reach at our pick in the 1st, partially because of how strong this class is at receiver and partially because Smith isn't a first-round prospect.  Not in my eyes, anyway.  I view him the same I did Kenny Stills, who is another good player but somebody I wouldn't take in the 1st.

Devin Smith is so overrated on this forum.  He isn't a bad player (very good with his downfield route running), but he is not a first round prospect.
