#3244484 Would you be okay with Charles Tillman?

Posted by Matthias on 17 February 2015 - 01:06 PM

I wouldn't compare Tillman with Harper.  Tillman is an all-time great in the secondary.  Plus he is a turnover machine.  As for getting speed in the secondary, as for as our young starters, we have more than enough speed.  I would plug Tillman at safety however.

NFL Draft:

 

 

 

 

1st Round Pick- Sammie Coates

 

 

hi-res-179990006-wide-receiver-sammie-co

 

 

We need to upgrade our speed at the wideout position, and Coates is among the fastest out of this class.  Of course not only that, he is a big guy who can muscle his way through the opposition.  So we have a combination of speed and power.  That is very rare to find in one guy.

 

 

 

 

2nd Round Pick- Jake Fisher

The best OT prospect left.  I would take Ogbuehi here, but just too many things going against him for me to take him this high.  Fisher is an athletic OT who is very agressive.  He's what I call a gamer.

 

 

 

 

3rd Round Pick- Chris Hackett

 

 

hi-res-f757e2e393239e78338814d693dd7231_

 

 

A great SS prospect.

 

 

 

 

4th Round Pick- Cedric Reed

 

 

hi-res-9235ce67ee76edc120439020ef171f3d_

 

 

Has the talent to easily replace Hardy long term if you look at it that way.  Played the year with an injury, but the season before he was unstoppable.

 

 

 

 

5th Round Pick- Eric Rowe

 

 

1390019.jpg

 

 

His man to man cover skills are pretty good.  He could make a good nickel corner for us, and he's big enough to play hard against the run.

 

 

 

 

6th Round Pick- Kaelin Clay

 

 

41d21f0899db7cf04166aa24a5195cb85b74eff1

 

 

Many know him for his famous blunder, but I liked him before that game.  He was one of the better return men in college throughout the year, and his receiver skills are respectable.  I see him being a good receiver in the NFL.

 

 

 

 

Round 7- Stephone Anthony

 

 

0831_dmsp_ClemsonUGA_Web1stHalf01_140944

 

 

I like his potential.  Probably will go around the 5th round, but usually once you get to the later rounds, just about everyone has the same value.

#3235486 Hardy Case Dismissed

Posted by Matthias on 09 February 2015 - 11:08 AM

Where's Adam Schefter?




#3217834 My draft 1.0

Posted by Matthias on 23 January 2015 - 09:40 AM

Benjamin, Strong, and Smith would make a heck of wideout core.  I not totally confident in Philly Brown as some are, so I like the additions here.




#3211373 The NFC Championship Game Thread....

Posted by Matthias on 18 January 2015 - 06:41 PM

Unreal.

That's what champions do. Find ways to win when you shouldn't.

Seattle will repeat and we will travel up there and beat them on the Thursday night season opener.

 

If the NFL is going to put us on the Thursday night opener, we better sign some good free agents and draft high profile rookies.  They aren't going to put us on that stage if we still have Cotchery and Bell as our starters.




#3210169 Mock offseason 1.0

Posted by Matthias on 18 January 2015 - 03:52 PM

If we did get Shaq, we could keep all three of our linebackers on the field for 99% of the time.




#3200162 Realistically, what is the future of Shula?

Posted by Matthias on 12 January 2015 - 10:40 AM

I want to get rid of Shula as well, but who is going to replace him?  We already know that Carolina is cheap when it comes to this kind of thing.  When Chud left here, they lazily promoted Shula to OC.  I imagine if we let Shula go, we would just promote Ken Dorsey.




#3197536 Richard Sherman - Josh Norman

Posted by Matthias on 11 January 2015 - 02:05 PM

Seattle trying to steal Norman away from us heehee!




#3195692 Congratulations to the Seahawks

Posted by Matthias on 10 January 2015 - 11:43 PM

Seahawks were the better team and they capitalized.  Good luck to them on their quest for another championship.




#3195414 Congratulations Panthers on a pretty good season

Posted by Matthias on 10 January 2015 - 11:21 PM

The guys out there showed a lot of heart this year.  Definitely a lot of potential for next season. 




#3179793 THE key to Victory come Saturday night @ Seattle

Posted by Matthias on 05 January 2015 - 06:57 AM

The key to this game is for Bersin to stop falling to his knees, praying he will catch the ball.




#3170442 Shula in the playoffs....

Posted by Matthias on 03 January 2015 - 10:59 AM

I think Cam took over the offense ever since the the New Orleans game.  Yet all in all, I like our offense now that we have good offensive line play.  I think we will put up points today, even against this Arizona defense.




#3168773 Shawn oakman returning to baylor for senior year

Posted by Matthias on 02 January 2015 - 10:06 AM

He needs to work on the level of effort he puts out there, so that good for him.




#3160007 How rare is it...

Posted by Matthias on 28 December 2014 - 08:40 PM

...that we have two corners that can not only cover, but can tackle as well?  Josh Norman and Bene Benwikere are really holding things down.  They have potential to be better than Chris Gamble and Ken Lucas in their heyday. (Their best year was the 05-06 season I believe)  As for Bene, I always figured he would be our shutdown nickel corner.  I had no idea he would be this good on the outside, holding his own against everyone he's been up against so far.  As for Norman, he really flipped a light switch this year.  We all knew he had ball hawk skills, but now we can put him up there with the top corners in the league.  I'm not saying Norman has arrived, which shows you his true potential, but I would take him right now from among the top corners to shut down big time receivers.  Let's see if they can hit new heights in this playoff run.
