2015 Carolina Panthers Draft - Watercooler Review

May 03 2015 07:19 AM Jeremy Igo
Another Carolina Panthers draft weekend has come and gone, and there is much to be discussed. I realize not everyone spends their weekend watching the draft, so here are the important beats for you in case you are cornered at the office watercooler by folks wanting your opinion on the draft.      View image | gettyimages.com   Round 1 - Shaq Thompson - LB - Washington   The Panthers selected a linebacker in round 1? Yes, yes they did, and here is why...   Last se...

Carolina Panthers Trade Up Select Oklahoma'...

May 02 2015 10:37 AM Jeremy Igo
Panthers select a possible day 1 starter at right tackle, was projected as a third rounder. Excellent move by Dave Gettleman.    Like Trai Turner from last year's draft, Williams is a "road grader" who should aid in the run game. The prospect of Williams and Turner playing next to each other is a very exciting prospect for Panthers fans who love smash mouth football.   New Panther OT Daryl Williams didn't allow a sack last year. He was one of 6 Power 5 Draft Eligible OT's to d...

Panthers Not Done At Wide Receiver

May 02 2015 06:44 AM Jeremy Igo
On Friday the Panthers traded up and addressed their need for a wide receiver. The selection of Devin Funchess adds another large target to the mix of receivers and helps to put the fans at ease.    However, I don't feel the Panthers are done at receiver yet. I look for them to add a smaller, speedier receiver this weekend.    The Panthers do like ECU receiver Justin Hardy, but they also like Duke receiver Jamison Crowder just as much if not more. Depending on how the card...

Huddler pokes fun at Falcons, gets free BOSE

May 01 2015 03:01 PM Lilsmitty09
So yesterday while watching what was a rather boring draft, the Falcons were "on the clock" and I decided to have some fun. I got on twitter and decided to make a post, which you can see below:     While I hardly ever tweet, my phone started blowing up with Twitter notifications and in my own way, this kind of went "viral" and fast. And then all of a sudden after hundreds of retweets, I got one comment that grabbed my attention...         I checked out their pr...

Shaq Thompson is not an undersized linebacker

May 01 2015 06:31 AM Jeremy Igo
I see a lot of misinformation out there right now regarding his size. But Shaq Thompson is not an undersized weak side linebacker. I see many comparisons to Thomas Davis, but that isn't entirely accurate.    A better comparison that can be made physically is with the best WLB of the past two decades... Derrick Brooks.      Derrick Brooks - 6'0 - 235lbs Shaq Thompson - 6'0 - 228lbs   Only seven pounds separate the two players physically. It would have been unwise...

Top 3 Offensive Targets In Round 2

May 01 2015 05:56 AM Jeremy Igo
Now that Gettleman has taken his BPA in round one of the NFL Draft, I look for him to address the needs of the offense in round 2. I don't see him choosing a defensive player, although that is possible.    Should the Panthers go offense, here are the top targets in round two that may be available when the Panthers select. Unfortunately, I don't see Devin Smith dropping to the Panthers or else he would be the top choice.      Devin Funchess - WR - Michigan  Roughl...
