Shaq Thompson In The First?

Feb 23 2015 10:01 AM Jeremy Igo
One of the more intriguing defensive players in this years draft is Shaq Thompson out of Washington. While reading up on his abilities, I couldn't help but make comparison's to the Panthers own Thomas Davis. Davis is in the twilight of his career, and now would be the time to groom an eventual replacement. Shaq Thompson might be the perfect candidate. Here is why... View image | gettyimages.com First, the measurables ...  Thomas Davis 2005 Draft Profile Heig...

Cam Newton should be paid more than Luck or Wilson

Feb 22 2015 07:40 AM Jeremy Igo
Cam Newton should be paid more than Luck or Wilson.    If you ask yourself what percentage of the overall offensive success is each QB responsible for, Cam Newton comes out well above Andrew Luck or Russell Wilson. Cam Newton and his legs are the main reason the Panthers offense had any success at all last season. If not for his ability to stay alive with his physical talents when linemen and linebackers are chasing him, the Panthers would have been ranked dead last in the league....

Panthers and Cam Newton in contract talks

Feb 21 2015 08:00 PM Jeremy Igo
According to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers have begun contract negotiations.  Apparently, both sides are happy to let the dust settle on the upcoming Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson contracts before talks get too serious. Then, they will use those contracts as a reference for Newton's upcoming deal. Don't be shocked if Cam Newton insists on more money than both Luck and Wilson, as Newton was a much larger part of any success his offensive uni...

5 Offensive Tackles On The Rise

Feb 21 2015 03:40 PM Jeremy Igo
The most important measurable for Offensive Tackles in the NFL Combine, in my opinion, is the shuttle drill. This drill incorporates getting out of the 3 point stance, lateral movement, and pivoting. All things that translate well at their position. 40 yard dash and bench press... not so much. If you want to get a glimpse of what these kids can do physically that translated to the NFL, watch the shuttle.    Here are the top 5 shuttle performers from the combine....   Jake Fishe...

Interpreting the Combine Press Conferences

Feb 19 2015 02:14 PM Jeremy Igo
Here are a few things I think I think about what the Gettleman and Rivera NFL combine press conferences tell us.     1. Gettleman will pull the trigger early on a defensive lineman. I think it is a lock that somewhere in rounds 1-3 a defensive end or tackle will probably be taken. Gettleman just can't help himself from glowing when talking defensive line.    2. Wide Receiver in round 1 is a real possibility. Rivera's talk of getting Cam weapons rang true as he went on to d...

Dave Gettleman Press Conference Quotes

Feb 19 2015 12:57 PM Jeremy Igo
"There is a real interesting crop of defensive line, which doesn't upset me" Regarding the draft   "My philosophy of unrestricted free agency is you use it to setup the draft."    "Both groups are strong (OL and WR)."    "I'm not going to discuss what we are going to do with Byron. We are going to draft the best guy. If we have 5 studs at one position and the best guy is at that position, we are going to take him."   "We're slowly but surely digging out. We are a...
