Carolina Panthers select G Edmund Kugbila

Apr 27 2013 11:38 AM KillerKat Carolina Panthers
Kugbila was picked to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine, but this wasn’t likely the most fortuitous selection in his family’s history. Kugliba’s parents Cletus and Lucy, won a visa lottery that allowed their family to move to the United States from Ghana. Kugbila and his family moved to the U.S. in 2000 when he was 10 years old. His younger brother Romauld, an Archer grad, is a freshman on the West Georgia football team. Edmund began playing football in the seventh grade. His size and talent attracted schools such as Alabama, Georgia, Vanderbilt and Florida, but a low SAT score prevented him from academically qualifying for a Division I school.


However, Kugbila has made the most of his time at Valdosta State. After playing in all 10 games in 2009 as a reserve, Kugbila started 10 games at tackle in the following season, and recorded the second most knockdown blocks on the team. In 2011, Kugbila moved to guard and played in all 10 games with eight starts. He was named all-conference and third team All-American. Kugbila finished his college career by helping Valdosta claim the national championship in 2012.

Small school guy, but huge and strong and a mauler... and has played both tackle and guard. Won't have to learn the OG position from scratch like Silotolu had to do so, hopefully, will make more of an immediate impact.

I like big, strong, ugly, violent linemen.
    • Zod PIE'd this
Love the pick. The dude is a mauler. I realize he went to a small school. Dude had no sacks against him and only 2 QB hurries.
I don't know what to say. There was other talent available, but I am just going to hope it works out.

Go fuᴄk yourself moron.


You first, I would be willing to help if you asked instead of acting like a prick. A decent VPS is $20/month, there's no reason that everything that ever happens regarding the Panthers should take the biggest fan forum down.

Gettleman has said all along we need to get big on the lines.


So why is everyone acting surprised about this draft?

I don't think the problem is drafting oline in the 4th it was who we picked over other players that seem like better prospects. Gettleman is supposed to have an eye for talent and be able to spot those diamonds in the rough therefore I'm all aboard with this pick
this guy = UDFA

big WTF on this pick

we still have the same scouts from when Hurney was here, hopefully Gettleman upgrades at some point
I cannot tell you how thrilled I am with the direction of the draft.

Trenches, Trenches.

You win there, you win everywhere
He is a good OG prospect. No one should be mad at this pick.

Freakish arms, great frame, and very good mobility / feet.
As long as we just found someone who can replace the atrocity that is Hangman, I am easy.

I was really scratching my head at first.

Your problem is you think you are much smarter than you actually are and assume you have the slightest clue about what is happening on the back end.

You aren't and you don't. Lets leave it at that.

20 dollar a month VPS... lol...cute.

Check this story out.

Browns worked him out and the article states that he was 3/4 round projected player. A lot of teams worked him out. I think that other teams would have selected him in the 4th.
Trust the professionals instead of ESPN or NFLN ranking.

BTW: B. Jones is too weak to play in a power scheme offense.


Yeah, people get too caught up with NFLN/ESPN rankings. A lot of players many have never heard of going in the 4th here while 'name' players continue to drop.

Yep, very impressive stats. If we can develop Edmund, watch out.

It's getting really frustrating not being able to discuss our draft picks when we have to wait 30+ minutes to discuss them because the board is down each time.


Seriously. Being the owner of the largest Panthers forum does mean you have asked for a certain amount of responsibility.
Talk to a random guy on twitter who tweeted about him getting drafted. I asked him was he any good cuz i had never heard of him and he said he had watched a lot of his games and he was a beast. Just throwing that out there.
Stock in gettleman going down fast.
"But..b-b-but, he got a 52 on NFL.com!!! It's Hurney all over again!!!!"

Stay dumb, Huddle.

Go fug yourself moron.


Classy AND cheap.

Rated by whom? Does it matter?


Probably Mel Kiper

Stock in gettleman going down fast.



And not even a game played yet as a GM?


You sir, are a true fan!

Stock in gettleman going down fast.


Case and point.

lets start banning posters (fieryp) and lighten the load on the servers
Brag about your BPA philosophy.


Get to later rounds.


Panic that you haven't addressed your needs.


Reach for a player with great value on the board.


Pick itself isn't atrocious but it could be kind of a scary indicator of whats to come. Marty used to pull that absolute same crap. Boast about your secretive highly educated draft wise plan of going by your board. Then getting to the later rounds, panicking, and hoping late round draft picks can come in and start for you.


We'll see if it's an aberration or a trend.

It is frustrating, But it is a positive in terms of it gives furious posters a time to cool down before they post.

Your problem is you think you are much smarter than you actually are and assume you have the slightest clue about what is happening on the back end.

Yeah, right. You are a photographer. I am a developer on the PHP team, manage over 50 different servers, and have been working in the web field for 15 years. I have web tools that average 15k hits per hour. So go ahead and talk out of your ass. And like I said, I'll be glad to help if you want. I wasn't trying to insult you, but it is highly likely I might know a little poor about this process than you, considering IT'S MY JOB.

Go fug yourself moron.


I've never seen such a classless response from a Board owner, especially given the reason the post was made.

just wow.
