#3320138 Mayock: 2015 WR class has eight with 1st round grade

I want to buy into the Agholor bandwagon but I just can't get over the stigma that surrounds USC receivers. They always carry hype and never pan out.

That stigma has been gone for years, they're producing good wide outs. Besides, that stigma is more superstition than anything.

Agholor is going to make some team happy.

I don't think it would matter to call shotgun in this car.

#3317647 Nicks not ready to call it a life. A good plan B in case Jennings never comes?

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 09 April 2015 - 11:05 PM

with how deep this draft is this year at his position, there is zero chance he gets signed by the Panthers. Rather have a young fast guy that has a chip on his shoulder than Nicks who doesn't get it. You can mold the youngster. Not nicks.

I'd hop the border for a two piece meal right now.

#3315745 Phillip Dorsett to meet with Panthers

I wouldn't mind Dorsett in the second round. The idea of him going in the first though..

A wide receivers 40 time?

Do you guys realize that doesn't mean a damn thing in the NFL? You have to have more than speed. I've seen countless of times were I read some of your comments and shake my head at the sheer stupidit.

A wide out has to have not only speed, but awareness, has to have initiative, hand eye coordination, some type of athleticism to make plays. At least be smart enough to know how to learn a playbook. Can he run a route? Can he run the right route?

There are countless of wide outs that didn't run a 4.3 forty time and are great nfl players. The biggest example of this is Jerry Rice. But what did he have that compensated the lack of speed? Determination, great route running, great hands, superb intellect. He could learn a playbook. He wanted it bad.

In past years you had several low 40 time receivers that are really good wide outs. Last year's Jarvis Landry. The guy ran a horrible 40 time. But he caught everything in his path And knows his route tree. A couple of years ago, Keenan Allen, someone I was high ono, was injured and ran a slow 40 time. He went in the third to the Chargers, now SD has a #1 wide out.

The point is, I'd if a guy runs a slow 40 don't count him out. There are other ways to make up for that speed. Route running, hip placement, step placement, breaking in and out of routes is key to getting open, even the veteran moves to fake out a corner.

Having speed is fine, but can you control that speed? If you can't stop on a dime, it won't matter if you're fast as the flash.

When I see people bash the likes of say Justin Hardy because he ran a 4.5 forty at the combine or a 4.4 at his pro day, I can't help but to shake my head at the pure ignorance of it. He is one of the few guys that I would say is extremely underrated. His speed is decent but his work ethic, hands, route running, and determination will help him at the next level. If he is picked by the Panthers, I'll be ecstatic about it. Gettleman knows his poo.

/Rant over

Tl;dr - 40 times ain't poo Boys.

LMAO! People are actually saying to take Dorsett in the first!? I'm so glad none of you run this franchise..

The foundation for the team is solid. Gettleman knows so much, we are truly fortunate to have him.

#3306947 Interesting mock draft

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 31 March 2015 - 02:14 PM

I don't find this interesting.

#3304435 If it came down to Peat or Perriman....

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 29 March 2015 - 03:29 PM

Why is Perriman getting so much hype? Because of his 40 speed? Peat all the way Inin this scenario.

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 27 March 2015 - 08:05 AM

Jimmy Clausen gets so much hate from Panthers fans. It's ridiculous. I hope he does win that job and does go to the playoffs. He didn't get a fair deal here.

He's this year's OBJ, a poor man's OBJ but still. I would be surprised if he's taken in the late second early third.

#3292794 This whole drafting the best player available talk around here is ridiculous

This thread is advanced level stupid.

#3288128 Stephen Hill

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 17 March 2015 - 01:27 PM

So what's the deal with hill? Is he being developed? If he sucks this badly why hasn't he been removed from the practice squad? Gettleman must see some potential. At the same time he will know when to move on from this experiment.
