#2764323 NFL media draft

Posted by TylerVagyler on 06 May 2014 - 09:56 PM

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.

Why wouldn't Cleveland just take their QB at 26?

#2763768 Ja'Wuan James at 28?

Posted by TylerVagyler on 06 May 2014 - 03:54 PM

I would not be disappointed with him at #28 because everything I've read about him says he is a complete package and a safe pick. It wouldn't be a flashy pick because he isn't getting much hype from the media but if you research him you'll see that he is a great player.

4 year starter in the SEC with 37 consecutive starts.

Bob McGinn's writeup:

 

 

 

5. JA'WUAN JAMES, Tennessee (6-6, 311, 5.28, 1-2) – Four-year starter at RT. "Athletic enough to play either side but more suited to the right," one scout said. "He can walk in and start for you right off the bat. Solid, not spectacular. Has a lot of talent. One of those eight- to 12-year guys as a starter if he can stay healthy." Has 35-inch arms. "Very intelligent (Wonderlic of 25), great kid, solid player," said another scout. "Great family. Just draft him because you'll never have a problem with this kid." From Suwanee, Ga. "He's kind of like (Alabama's D.J.) Fluker from last year," a third scout said. "Just a big, powerful guy with long arms."

 




#2762278 Byron Bell signs tender

Posted by TylerVagyler on 05 May 2014 - 04:13 PM

I think we will see some nice improvement from Bell this season. He hasn't been great but he does get more hate than deserved. 




#2761899 Pre-Draft News Items

Do you take him over a guy like Allen Robinson?

 

If we are simply looking at BPA then yeah, I would.

 

The only thing that worries me is how he'd fit in Shula's scheme. Olsen lining up in a traditional TE spot on the line with Ebron out wide or in the slot would be a nice combo considering how much Cam loves throwing to his TEs (look at Shockey and Olsen duo).

College basketball rules this state.

Whether we're a "running team" or a "passing team" the OL needs to be addressed. 




#2761468 Cyrus Kouandjio revisted

I knew someone would respond/say this. 

 

Well, that wasn't the case Cam's first two seasons. 

 

And this past season, the run game was very inconsistent. You take out Cam's stats, and where was the running game (outside of when Tolbert got the ball after the inconsistent and injured D'Angelo and Stewart)?

 

It's no wonder Gettleman realizes the team needs to upgrade the talent at WR and the OL to re-balance the attack, especially downfield. 

 

Any who. My point was: The reporter said "the focal point", as if that was really/ever true the past three seasons. It was not. 

 

Up until this season, many Huddler's were complaining that "Chud throws the ball too much". And we know this past season, the run game was anything but the Panther "Focal Point". Far from it. 

 

Chud isn't the OC anymore. Shula made it obvious last season that we aren't an air it out team anymore.




#2761282 Darin Gantt's Panthers Draft Needs

Posted by TylerVagyler on 04 May 2014 - 05:01 PM

  Gantt explains it very well.  We are not locking down 2 DEs at premium prices.  That is stupid.  In 2015, you can still lock down Hardy and doing something with CJ is easier to deal with.

 

SIgning Hardy to a long-term deal right now is very dumb--THAT would be fugging up, in my opinion.  I felt that he would not do it, he has not done it, and I am happy about it.  If we draft a DE early it is because he realizes that you have to have pass rush in this defense but you cannot spend too much on that pass rush.

 

Gross' retirement hurt us, but our defense is the golden goose around here--make no mistake about that.  If you think WR and OT are bigger priorities, you are wrong.  Sure, we need a LOT, as do 16 other NFL teams.  Yes, we got rid of mediocre WRs.  Wah.  Time to improve there with a great WR draft.  Getting fiscally smart at DE and having an awesome pass rush helps this team in the long term more than reaching for a rookie LT.

 

I see your point, but I see Gettlemen's logic.  One is impatient and concerned only with the now., the other is patient and sound.

 

I trust in what Gettleman does on draft day. If the best player available is a DE and he Gman take him then so be it. But to say DE is a bigger need than WR or OT is absurd.

Another thing, people keep saying drafting a DE would be "drafting for the future". 

 

Why aren't we "drafting for the future" at WR or OT? Why should those positions be put on the back burner when we are much deeper at DE?

 

I know BPA is the strategy but I'd be shocked if Ealy is the BPA when we're on the clock.




#2761236 Darin Gantt's Panthers Draft Needs

Posted by TylerVagyler on 04 May 2014 - 04:15 PM

I think it's hilarious Gantt has the same attitude about WRs as this franchise has had for the last several years.

 

"Yeah, it's a problem....but let's fix _________ first".

 

Eventually, we have to seriously address the issue.

 

 

(sorry for the triple post).




#2761233 Darin Gantt's Panthers Draft Needs

Posted by TylerVagyler on 04 May 2014 - 04:10 PM

i think if there is no long term deal reached with hardy this season (and i doubt there will be) then CJ will be a cap casualty next offseason. and GH will get his money. i wouldnt be shocked to see a DE this draft. i just hope like hell its not before the 3rd...

 

Yep. If Hardy produces again and resigns, CJ is most likely gone.
