I hope they sign him to a huge deal. I would love a 3rd round draft choice.

#3272453 Drafting a Wide out in the first three rounds is imperative.

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 09 March 2015 - 08:32 PM

Having a good WR corp can go a long way. Cam Newton is already this  teams franchise QB. Getting this man weapons and protecting him are the next steps. 



Free agency has not started yet, officially and we've already made some moves to ensure we have some more success in the offense and the special teams.


Special teams Ace Ted Ginn JR has come back home, even if he is a Cleveland Native. I can assure you this is the place he would call home just because of how good that one year was. 2013 was a good year for Ted Ginn. Looking at his stats for that year. You'd say it's a mediocre performance. For Ginn, who didn't quite live up to his expectations in SF, came here and rose from the ashes. He became that guy that could be a weapon in two facets of the team. Special teams and Offense. One year removed, he didn't live up to his expectations in Arizona. Coming back to Carolina and continuing that chemistry he gained with Cam Newton will benefit him. I do see a reduced role in the Offense though. He would be the #3-4th option for Cam. That's quite fine. Ginn can focus on his craft as return specialist. Helping this team in that area.



Kelvin Benjamin is the #1 receiver at this time. We all know what he is capable of. He can have some of the most amazing catches but drop the easiest ones. His rookie campaign will go down in history as the best campaign in the history of the position for the Panthers. What I love about KB is that he is not complacent. He knows he needs work done. He needs to work on his hands. It's no secret. The quickest way to solve a problem is to know you have one and accept it. He's done that. I'm sure his sophomore year will be just as good if not better. Once he gets control of his hands he will be amazing. 



The unsung hero, the guy who just came out of no where and solidified his presence on the team. A surprise to me actually that he went undrafted. Corey "Philly" Brown. He's honestly a diamond in the rough. He has the potential to be a #2 with his speed. It will be a challenge but he can do it. As of now he's a solid #3 option. In the future his floor will always be a #3. He could be higher if he works at it though.


Brenton Bersin. The muff punter himself. We won't be saying that anymore, take out the punt returning duties and Brenton was on the verge of becoming a #2 receiver. Then the punt return duties came and well he dropped the ball on that and his role in the offense took a major dip. As it stands now he's no better than a #4.


De'Andre Presley....who? Yeah, he has had that much impact on the team. 







Right now, Greg Olsen and Kelvin Benjamin are the top receivers followed by a bunch of #3's and #4's. This coming draft is once again, deep. I'm sure Cam Newton and the brass are reacting like...








Forget the big names, Although it's nice to day dream of a White/Benjamin duo. It's not going to happen.



The next crop, the lower tier guys are not bad either. Here's a list of WR's that could be available at #25 al the way through the 3rd round.



Davante Parker

Jaelen Strong

Dorial Green-Beckham

Breshad Perriman

Nelson Agholor

Tyler Lockett

Phillip Dorsett

Justin Hardy

Sammie Coates

Devin Smith




Being that this draft is deep at the position, this means talent will slip. From the first, second, and third rounds. The fourth round would be a little hazy. The thing that will dictate the talent dropping is if Teams don't rush to get WR's. There's always a round that they start going after WR's. Last year it happened a little sooner than expected, but there were several WR needy teams. This year, not so much. I believe Pass Rushers will be what will help the WR Talent pool last a little longer, maybe even until the 4th round when we pick.


Preferrably, I would like the Panthers to make a choice in the first two rounds, but if another top talent drops to them, I would not be mad if they take such talent. Example: Kony Ealy, Trai turner. 


Drafting another weapon would set up the Panthers nicely, KB, Brown and Draft pick would make a nice 1-2-3 combo. Olsen is in his prime and I don't think Shula could mess this offense up with so much talent. 


In order for this offense to move forward, this April/May, a WR has to be taken to line up next to Kelvin. Ultimately I trust Gettleman with his evaluations since 2 years running he's found players that contribute immediately. So if he picks a wide out in the first three rounds, he's going to be a starter, you can believe that.

Why is everyone shocked at the interest in Ted Ginn? He's a dynamic return guy. He'd make any special teams unit instantly better. Y'all are under selling him.

So is DWill practicing his wrestling persona here, because this is full on heel poo. Tolbert should come at him with a chair after totally dismissing his presence.
