I like WalterFootball.com's current mock for Carolina

26 February 2015 - 11:02 AM

25. The Panthers couldn't block for Cam Newton whatsoever early in the season. The offensive line was able to gel late in the year, but there are still some glaring holes there, particularly at both tackle positions. Charlie Campbell reported that multiple teams have second-day grades on T.J. Clemmings, as you can see in the NFL Draft Rumor Mill, but he has enough upside to be chosen late in the first frame.

57. The Panthers likely will select the top available player from the tackle or receiver position in the first few rounds. Those are their two big areas of need. They have to find someone to draw attention away from Kelvin Benjamin.

89. Jonathan Stewart finished the year on a strong note, but the Panthers can't depend on him because he's so frequently banged up. With DeAngelo Williams officially gone, Carolina will have to add another running back.

121. It shouldn't surprise anyone if the Panthers double up on the tackle position. Both of their tackles were putrid last year.

153. Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis are studs, but Carolina could stand to find a third linebacker to complement the two Pro Bowlers.

 

 

 

Would I be thrilled with T.J. Clemmings?  No, there are other OT prospects I like better.  But if he's the one that falls to us and DG pulls the trigger, I think the kid definitely has the make-up of an OT (even though its rough, raw material right now).  I really, really like all the other picks that (to me) seem to fit BPA at the time they were chosen in addition to filling team needs.

 

(P.S. This mock is only through the 5th round at this point.)


cbssports.com La Canfora: Panther's highest offseason priority? Sign Cam

Carolina Panthers: Get Cam Newton off the fifth-year option. Turn him into a fixed cost over the next five years and determine what money and cap space you have for everything else. He is the franchise. Yes, he needs more weapons around him. But it all starts right here. It's going to cost upward of $20 million a year. Deal with it.


Heavy offseason turnover on the Aints staff

The New Orleans Saints announced the hiring of seven new assistants on Wednesday, completing a substantial makeover of head coach Sean Payton's staff.

 

The team confirmed the hiring of senior defensive assistant Dennis Allen and running backs coach Joel Thomas, whose hirings had previously been reported. The Saints also added receivers coach John Morton and assistant linebackers coach James Willis, offensive assistants Kyle DeVan and Greg Lewis and coaching assistant Brendan Nugent.

 

 

 

 

Maybe they think new coaches will fix their horrible salary cap problem?


In happier news, Cam Newton is keeping his promise to Mama

This semester should earn him ye ol' sheepskin.

But Cam made a promise. He vowed to his mother that he'd complete his education at Auburn, the university where he won a national championship in 2010. With the offseason upon us, Newton has returned to Auburn's campus to secure the necessary credits needed to earn his degree by this spring.

 

As you might expect, seeing one of the most famous players in the NFL acting like a normal person on campus has caused quite a stir amongst the student body. You just don't expect Cam Newton to be behind you when you're waiting to buy a grilled cheese.

 

 

Best grilled cheese on campus, I hear...

The Seattle D at the end of that game

The poorest display of sportsmanship I've ever seen in a SuperBowl.

And it's right up there in the "all-time" category too.

I guess its the expected reaction after their rabbits foot gifted them a win YET AGAIN and they totally blew it.
