He's been a disappointment in the league after being a 2nd round pick, and it's odd that the WR-needy (if Gordon is suspended) Browns would release him, but out of the 2011 draft, he's got the 4th most catches behind AJ Green, Julio Jones, and Torrey Smith. Worth a flier?
Tanier has been a supporter of the Panthers/Cam, he was a believer last season when everyone else thought we were frauds. His draft "grade" is not pretty; this is just the conclusion:
Final Assessment: Remediation. Kudos to Panthers general manager David Gettleman for putting family first and attending his son's graduation on Day Three of the draft. Next time, he should put family really first by spending draft weekend at home making pancakes and watching the sunset, leaving someone in charge who will pick players the Panthers can actually use in 2014. This was an ugly draft, capping one of the worst offseasons I have ever seen a playoff team inflict upon itself. When the Panthers are 5-11 next year, people will straight-facedly blame it on Cam Newton's regression, ignoring the fact that Peyton Manning could not make this receiving corps serviceable. If Gettleman is one of those Cam-blamers, Panthers fans, be terrified.
