An Armanti What If....

29 May 2012 - 09:08 PM

What if the panthers used Armanti in some misdirection packages on special teams? He could be used in some "end arounds" to or from Pilares or some cross field passes to Pilares. Was just considering this after watching the Indy game again in which they ran an "end around" type play on a kickoff which was very effective.

I know most want Armanti gone and he's taking a roster spot from another WR with potential, such as Chris Manno. However, if this works on occasion, especially against a high powered team like the Saints*, it could give us a distinct advantage on the field position front.

Just an idea. Don't hate me forever.

Cbs Top 100

28 May 2012 - 02:48 AM

So, according to Pete Prisco, we have four players worthy of the top 100. Steve Smith was the highest rated at number 46, right behind Trent Cole and just ahead of Champ Bailey. Jordan Gross clocked in at 68. I find it hard to rate O lineman because... their O lineman. Not flashy, justed rugged, hardworking, behemoths. You only really notice them when they're bad. Atleast thats my opinion. Cam Newton came in at 83, which I can understand because he's a rookie and needs to prove he can be a consistent nightmare. And, finally, chris gamble came in at 93. Nice to see him get some recognition.

Charles Johnson and Ryan Kalil got honorable mentions.

Positional Draft Ratings Accroding to Mayock

25 January 2012 - 09:06 AM

The 2012 NFL Draft may be three months away, but the evaluation process is already in full swing. NFL draft guru Mike Mayock provides his early prospect rankings at each position. These rankings will be regularly updated in the coming months, but here is where things stand on the week of the Senior Bowl:

1. Andrew Luck, Stanford
2. Robert Griffin III, Baylor
3. Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M

It's far too early in the process to apply rankings after the top three quarterbacks, but there are plenty of other signal-callers to keep an eye on. Some will be easier to evaluate than others:

Trust the process:

Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State
Nick Foles, Arizona
Brock Osweiler, Arizona State
Kirk Cousins, Michigan State
Ryan Lindley, San Diego State

Figure them out:

Russell Wilson, Wisconsin
Kellen Moore, Boise State

Running Back
1. Trent Richardson, Alabama
2. David Wilson, Virginia Tech
3. Lamar Miller, Miami (FL)
4. Doug Martin, Boise State
5. LaMichael James, Oregon

Wide Receiver
1. Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State
2. Michael Floyd, Notre Dame
3. Kendall Wright, Baylor
4. Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina
5. Chris Givens, Wake Forest

Tight End
1. Dwayne Allen, Clemson
2. Coby Fleener, Stanford
3. Orson Charles, Georgia
4. Ladarius Green, Louisiana-Lafayette
5. Michael Egnew, Missouri

1. Riley Reiff, Iowa
2. Matt Kalil, USC
3. Jonathan Martin, Stanford
4. Mike Adams, Ohio State
T-5. James Brown, Troy
T-5. Zebrie Sanders, Florida State

Interior Offensive Lineman
1. David DeCastro, Stanford
2. Peter Konz, Wisconsin
3. Kevin Zeitler, Wisconsin
4. Cordy Glenn, Georgia
5. Kelechi Osemele, Iowa State

Defensive End
1. Quinton Coples, North Carolina
2. Melvin Ingram, South Carolina
3. Whitney Mercilus, Illinois
4. Nick Perry, USC
T-5. Chandler Jones, Syracuse
T-5. Andre Branch, Clemson

Defensive Tackle
1. Devon Still, Penn State
2. Jerel Worthy, Michigan State
3. Michael Brockers, LSU
4. Brandon Thompson, Clemson
T-5. Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State
T-5. Dontari Poe, Memphis

1. Courtney Upshaw, Alabama
2. Luke Kuechly, Boston College
3. Dont'a Hightower, Alabama
4. Zach Brown, North Carolina
5. Vontaze Burfict, Arizona State

1. Morris Claiborne, LSU
2. Janoris Jenkins, North Alabama
3. Alfonzo Dennard, Nebraska
4. Leonard Johnson, Iowa State
5. Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama

1. Mark Barron, Alabama
2. Harrison Smith, Notre Dame
3. George Iloka, Boise State
4. Markelle Martin, Oklahoma State
T-5. Janzen Jackson, McNeese State
T-5. Antonio Allen, South Carolina

Personally, I dont really trust Mayock's ratings. But, if there's something to this, we should have a good chance of filling need positions with quality players in the second or third if we trade picks. A lot of the players that people are salivating over, such as Markell Marten, Dre Kirkpatrick, Matt Kalil (who I though was a number one T), Michael Brockers, and Alshon Jeffrey, are rated lower than some might expect.

This also strengthens the argument that we should trade down and pick up later picks, such as an additional second and a third. I still believe we should go O-Line, though.
