#2780597 Grade Our 2014 Draft

Posted by TylerVagyler on 11 May 2014 - 11:04 AM

For the most part, I really like the Panthers draft. 
 
Kelvin Benjamin, WR - Considering who was on the board at pick #28, KB was the guy I wanted. I know he had a poor combine but you can't bury a guy based off one performance. His 40 time was on the slower side but as Gettleman said "you can't coach 6'5" 240 lbs". Also, when watching him play, you wouldn't know he ran a slow 40. He can also create separation with his strength and size. He seems like a humble guy who realizes he has some work to do but the ceiling is very high. At times, Cam can struggle with accuracy and often overthrows his WRs. I don't think he'll be able to overthrow Benjamin. This pick also means no more awkward trips to the redzone. Just throw it up to the big guy.
 
Kony Ealy, DE - Somewhat of a weird pick but Gettleman drafts on value and had Ealy as a first round grade. Like Benjamin, Ealy is not yet a finished product but he has the luxury of playing with Hardy and Johnson. I'm looking forward to seeing how the rotations work with Ealy and Hardy both being able to line up inside on passing downs. Ealy - Hardy - Star - Johnson is an intimidating pass rush on 3rd and 10. More importantly, this pick gives us leverage next offseason with Johnson and Hardy. As nice as it'd be, I doubt we can keep all 3. I'm guessing the team will wait to see how Hardy performs this season and base their decision off that. Releasing Johnson next offseason would save the team $11 million and he's older than Hardy so I'd prefer for him to be the odd man out.
 
Trai Turner, OG - Awesome pick that meets value and need. Turner is only 20-years old and will need to keep grinding to completely develop his game but he's not far from being a force. He's a true hog mollie and an excellent run blocker. He played in a very similar scheme to what the Panthers run while at LSU. He straight up moves people and has the ability to get to the next level. Love this pick. Day one starter. Amini - Kalil - Turner will be a nice interior to help take pressure off the weaker tackles.
 
Tre Boston, S - Hated this pick at first but he's growing on me a little bit. Schematically, he makes sense. He's a ballhawk who is at his best when he can sit back in zone and react. He's also a solid tackler. Sitting behind our front 7 will obviously be a benefit to him and his development. I expect him to be a special teams guy and a backup to DeCoud in the upcoming season. 
 
Bene Benwikere, CB - Another decent pick but nothing to get overly excited about. Like Boston, he's at his best when sitting back in zone and reacting. Great instincts but not a great tackler. Needs to hit the gym and develop the physical side of his game. I like his potential but not too sure what to expect from him.
 
Tyler Gaffney, RB - This is my favorite pick in the draft. Williams and Stewart are both on their way out. The only thing keeping them on the team are those atrocious contracts from the Hurney-era. I don't necessarily expect it but I actually wouldn't be surprised if Williams becomes a June 1st cut this offseason. As far as Gaffney is concerned, he's the perfect RB for our system. Smash mouth runner who can wear the defense down but also has the ability to break out a big run. He rushed for over 1700 yards and had 21 rushing TDs last season for Stanford. 
 
I hate grading drafts this early but as of now I'd give this draft a B-.

Stanford RB Tyler Gaffney says he has no plans to return to baseball, that football is what he wants to pursue. #CARpick




#2777509 5th Round - Carolina trades up, selects CB Bene Benwikere in the 5th round.

Posted by TylerVagyler on 10 May 2014 - 01:35 PM

we gave up our 5th and 7th to move up. idk if i agree with this.... that only leaves us with one more pick....

 

We gave a 7th to move up 20 spots and get out guy. I'm fine with it.

#2766243 Potential Trade up to 19th Overall w/Miami

Posted by TylerVagyler on 07 May 2014 - 11:56 PM

All I'll say is, don't trust everything you read draft week. There's also been article saying we are open to trading down. Both beat writers think KB is one of the top guys they want. Point is, no one really knows except a select few. Everything else is speculation.

He's black and doesn't act white = poor work ethnic, welcome to the huddle. You should have been here before we drafted Cam...

Edit: Eh, its not that bad here, I'm still in defensive mode from all the racism on reddit.

 

Oh I was here when we drafted Cam. 

 

I was one of the guys completely in favor of drafting him. I remember arguing with Mr. Scot pretty regularly back then.




#2764323 NFL media draft

Yeah, I'd say about 0 chance Rivera and Gettleman take a guy with a poor work ethic (KB) in the first round.

 

I haven't read anything that says Benjamin has poor work ethic.
