Corey "Philly" Brown a name to watch

May 15 2014 04:01 AM Jeremy Igo Carolina Panthers
With the Carolina Panthers 2014 Rookie Camp coming up tomorrow, you may want to keep an eye on one name in particular.

Of all of the undrafted free agents signed with the Panthers, wide receiver Philly Brown may have the best chance to catch on with the team. Brown led the Ohio State Buckeyes with 10 touchdowns last year. At a lean 5'11 and 178 pounds, he has decent size but could use to put on a few pounds. His route running also has much room for improvement.

But Philly has one thing you can't teach, speed. His 40 low was a 4.38 making him on of the fastest guys on the practice field and able to compete as a return specialist.

With he departure of Ted Ginn it remains to be seen who will be fielding punt returns. Kenjon Barner will be given another chance at the duties, as will Pilares. However, punt return talent is at its thinnest in many seasons. This may be the opening an UDFA like Philly Brown needs to find his name on a locker.

This Philly B obsession around here is puzzling to say the least

 

Everyone needs something and someone to believe in. Some love to root for the underdog. Some like to root for the little man, and in this case they are rooting for the little man literally. All that, and the fact that deep down in their hearts people know that our WR corps is highly suspect (whether they admit it or not, especially out of some perverse believe that Dave Gettleman can do no wrong).  They are clinging to a dream, because the reality makes them nervous.

 

 

Never mind the fact that I can't remember the last time a UDFA WR made our active roster. Has one ever?  But, who knows, with our dearth of talent and/or experience at wide-out, perhaps Philly is the one that will break through.

everyone may get hyped over an UDFA WR prospect, but this guy has the most potential of any we've brought in.  Then again, we'll have to wait and see..  

 

I don't usually get involved in such lofty expectations with scrubs, but I'm buying in on this kid..

If he (Brown) puts on a bit more weight and keeps his speed relatively the same - he seems promising. I don't know much about comparing rookies to current NFL players - but would love to have a Victor Cruz type of guy on our roster. Not sure if he can become that, but if he can - I would definitely be a fan.

Dat boy runs like his heads on fire and his ass is catchin.

I hope everyone is right, but Joe Adams looked just as good, if not better. 

I dunno...if we are looking for straight line speed then Underwood is our guy. He ran a 4.4 official at the combine while Brown ran a 4.5 official. Not to say that is the only credible time though.

My brother in law lives in Columbus and is an OSU alum.  He says that Philly is a hard worker.  He said that he assumed a leadership role this season.   Philly was not their primary return man.  "He is no Hester" He said that he had "pretty good" hands.  Nice addition.

Love this kid, reminds me of DeSean Jackson... why did he go undrafted?

4.5ish 40 at the Combine.  You can't do that when you're his size.

 Here is your fluff piece:

So is he the "Taye Biddle" of this years training camp?

If he can pull a jason carter without the injury he may make it to the practice squad at least. I think he waits till next year once one or 2 of our 1 year guys walk. Though I believe Avant is the only true 1 year right?

Tongue firmly in cheek


nothing to do with the player, hope he is exciting


Lol thanks for the clarification.

And he had a pretty good return average and all the tools to succeed, just couldn't hold onto the ball. If we have to bring in another Joe Adams and hope he can, works for me.

Man, I loved Taye Biddle so much. That kid looked electric in the preseason.
