    I wonder if Cam wants to pay back the 40 million he received over the past 2 years. Sure he is angry at the team but how long are they supposed to hang on handing him 20 million plus per year to not play. Honestly I hope he recovers but am not angry the Panthers moved on. This is the way it goes in the NFL.

    First I wanted to thank all of you who follow my content and engage in dialogue, I am still learning all the ins and outs of scouting, and having feedback like that helps immensely. I wanted to let you know, this may be the last year I have an inside source, as my friend may choose to pursue his the field he has an education in (sports medicine), but I will keep you updated on that come next year. It's always a lot of fun to turn on the tape of these players, come to my own conclusion about them, and see where it matches between fans and an actual NFL professional, its usually right in between. I look forward to making another thread with the majority of my own opinions next year. Without further ado, here are my draft grades for the Carolina Panthers. 1). Derrick Brown, DT, AUB 97/100 grade: A+ I think the proper term for our draft would be 'Setting the tone' and the one player who represents that more than anyone else is Derrick Brown. Being able to sit there at 7 and end up with the third best player in the draft, one that fills a need is a blessing, and the impact he will have on our defense cannot be overstated. Numerous times I watched Brown swallow up entire gaps, constantly command double/triple teams, and swat SEC offensive line to the side like flies. We all saw the play where he picked up a LSU guard and throw him into Joe Burrow, that guard will absolutely start at the next level, not that it mattered to Derrick. He will command similar attention at the NFL level, you simply cannot put one man on him and expect it to work, he is like a juiced up Star. He won't command 10+ sacks, but everyone around him might. He will be the player on our defense that offense will have to game plan against. Love the pick, love the player, and love his personality. 2.) Yetur Gross-Matos, DE, PNN 89/100 grade: A+ This is not a guy I had falling to the first round, once I saw him drop to the 2nd round I still did not think there was a chance we would nab him, I even thought we might try and trade up for him. I was ecstatic when he got to us because I was certain he would be the pick once he fell to us (I'm finding out why this afternoon), he was my second favorite edge in a 4-3 in this draft. Yetur was constantly in every backfield that I watched him play against, he always set his edge and I didn't often see him get pushed off his spot. He also is dynamic as a rusher, with all the physical tools needed to develop into a seriously effective edge rusher that can take over a game in the mold of Carlos Dunlap or Ziggy Ansah. Only thing I saw hold him back on tape was his processing speed and rawness, which should be corrected with good coaching. 3.) Jeremy Chinn, DEF, SI 84/100 grade: A You want versatility? That's what you get with Chinn, pick a spot on the defense and he can probably play it. I imagine he will plug in at linebacker for sub packages, play nickel from time to time, and his regular position will probably sit down as a in the box safety, it would be inappropriate to really label his position. He will be on the football field somewhere on every defensive play for us, and add an excellent chess piece to contain Gronk, or punish the short game. 4.) Troy Pride, CB, ND 79/100 grade: B I'll be honest, I didn't do much studying on Pride, I did not have the time to scout everybody so the moment we drafted him I turned on a few games, and read a few reports on him. I come away with a very positive impression. Pride was a sprinter in high school and college, and that shows up on tape for him with impressive long speed as well as an ability to shut down the majority of vertical routes ran against him -cough julio jones cough-. Definitely not the most physical corner in the world, struggles putting his athletic gift into a more refined role, and he is not very aggressive. He will start right away for us, and hopefully work through some bumps and bruises to put it all together. The potential is all there. 5.) Kenny Robinson, S, WV/XFL 81/100 grade: A+ I didn't look too much into his XFL tape as that is pretty hard to get a good grasp on as far as talent level, he was obviously the best player on his defense and a play making force. However, his WV tape was pretty eye opening. When watching him, his play making style reminds one of Justin Simmons or Earl Thomas, and can shut down a deep side of the field in the same regard. He absolutely needs to work on the angles he takes in pursuit in tackling, but otherwise is an immediate starter at free safety. Maybe the steal of the draft, he projected in the 2nd round if he would have stayed in school. I will watch some more tape on our other two defensive draft picks, and hopefully I will like what I see. All in all, from what I was able to evaluate, we won this draft in a big way, and the defense will begin to flourish because of it.

    Rhule is not interested in winning under 5 games this season. He is not interested in dragging this team down to the worst in the league to draft any single player. Instead, he is looking to build a culture of hard work and accountability in the building. The hope is that will benefit the team as a whole much more than any single player would. That would be nearly impossible to create if he allowed a 1-2 win season. The goal is a season with a handful of wins, some close losses, and a hell of a lot of hustle. I'm good with that.

    During the first segments of Kyle Bailey's radio show today, he recounted a conversation he had with someone within the Panthers organization, basically giving "their side of the story" as far as the Newton fiasco. Here's a summary of what he said, keeping in mind this is from a Panthers source: - The "little commitment" video was exactly what it sounded like, that he wanted an extension. The team was absolutely unwilling to do so and may not have been all that happy about the video itself. - The Panthers, at that point, decided the time had come to go ahead and move on from Newton. They told his people (primarily agent Bus Cook) that they were trading him. Cook asked for permission to control the trade negotiations and the team agreed. The team then tweeted that news out. - After seeing the tweet, Newton got angry because he felt the team made it sound like he wanted out. He reacted accordingly with his Instagram post. The team doesn't believe they did anything wrong with their tweet given that his people had requested to control the process. - Matt Rhule's comments through the whole offseason discussion were deliberately measured. He expressed the desire to coach Newton but allowed for the fact that he might not get to. Ultimately, he'd support whatever quarterback the team settled on. - The team didn't expect to get Teddy Bridgewater for what they were offering. Word is that the Patriots also wanted Bridgewater and the Bucs would have as well if not for the interest from Tom Brady. - Once Bridgewater was on board, the team felt safe to just let it be known that they were moving on. With what's happened since, the team now believes there is no trade market for Newton. He'll probably be released. - David Tepper still plans to bring Newton back and induct him into the team's Ring of Honor at some point. So here we are... This is the team's side of things. Whether or not you choose to believe what they're saying is, of course, up to you.

    Without fixing the DL, nothing else on D matters. We had the best LB I've ever seen playing for us last year and it didn't matter. We had the top free agent CB playing for us last year. It didn't matter. Gotta fix that DL. This was a no brainer pick. Glad we didn't botch it.

    On paper, the Carolina Panthers could have had one of their more productive drafts in team history. Only the future will tell us how it truly should be graded. Until then, I will now give you the next best thing. Here are this year's Carolina Panthers draft grades with each pick earning an item on the McDonald's Breakfast Menu. Derrick Brown - DT Arguably the worst thing about the 2019 Carolina Panthers was their inability to stop anyone from running all over them. This makes the Brown pick one of the most important they could possibly make over the next several seasons. Brown will be the anchor the entire defense is tied to starting this season. Yes, Simmons was available, but this pick on its own merit is impossible to complain about. Grade: McDonald's Big Breakfast with Hotcakes - Fills up the empty space in the most satisfying way Yetur Gross-Matos - DE Gross-Matos will immediately play a key role on the Carolina Panthers defensive line. Everyone is talking about his ability to get to the quarterback, which is true, but I am more excited about what Gross-Matos means in the run game. Ever since the departure of Charles Johnson, the Carolina Panthers have missed having a true 4-3 defensive end to set the edge and contain the runner. Gross-Matos has that ability and will only amplify how improved the Derrick Brown pick improves the Panthers run defense. Grade: McDonald's Sausage Egg and Cheese McGriddle - Delicious, substantive, and does it in style. Jeremy Chinn - S Matt Rhule stated Chinn will be able to cover tight ends for the Panthers. Those exact words were spoken by the Panthers about Rashaan Gaulden. Where Gaulden was a total failure, Chinn could excel. Chinn has the size and athletic ability to cover any tight end in the league as needed. Also, his name is Jeremy and that means he is prett god damned amazing to begin with. Grade: McDonald's Sausage Egg and Cheese McMuffin - Consistent, dependable, unlikely to disappoint Troy Pride - CB Pride is a guy that has flashed pro ability but has not done consistently enough to be considered a top prospect in this draft. Taking him in round 4 isn't much of a risk for the Carolina Panthers. Because of the dire need at corner there is little chance Pride won't make the final roster. The only question is if the Panthers brand spanking new coaching staff can mold him into a solid rotational corner. Pride will be a good litmus test for what we can expect from this Panthers regime in terms of player development. Grade: McDonald's Sausage Burrito - Good, but not great. Leaves you wanting more. Kenny Robinson - S In round 5 the Carolina Panthers selected safety Kenny Robinson. At 6'2 and 198lbs Robinson has the ideal size to be a free safety in the NFL. This season, however, Robinson will likely spend most of his time on special teams where he has a chance to prove his worth until he develops into a NFL caliber safety. Robinson is at least two seasons away from seeing much time on defense barring injury to others in front of him. Grade: McDonald's Fruit and Maple Oatmeal - Not your first choice, not your second choice, but perhaps will make you feel good about the decision later. Bravvion Roy - DT I love this pick. Roy is a mammoth of a man at 6'1 and 332 pounds. Having played for Matt Rhule at Baylor, Roy is already willing to run through a brick wall for his coach. Roy will make the team and see time on defense this season as he spells Derrick Brown. The Panthers were in desperate need of defensive tackles before the draft, now they just need perhaps a serviceable vet. Grade: McDonald's Bacon Egg and Cheese McGriddle - You orderd a plain sausage biscuit, but in the bag you found something much better. Stantley Thomas-Oliver III - CB Thomas-Oliver made the switch from receiver to corner his sophomore year making him a bit of a project at the NFL level. He will need to come in and really bust his ass on special teams to make the Panthers roster. If not, a practice squad spot is likely where he could also be groomed as a returner. Grade: McDonald's Fruit n Yogurt Parfait - Low expectations to satisfy, but perhaps will contribute to something better later.

    Tepper said this would be a 5 year process. We haven't even began year 1 and people are completely freaking out and whining. We didn't win crap with what we had, and with a new coaching staff and system things were obviously going to change drastically. Why everyone is acting so surprised by that blows my mind. I'm no fan of Marty Hurney, but he has to be here through the draft (even though he isn't a great drafter) He and his staff have worked the past year scouting players. Bringing in an assistant this year will give us an easier transition when we permanent ban Hurney from making anymore decisions for us in the future. I'm not mad about the Bridgewater signing. He is a decent QB and good locker room guy, and someone perfect for holding down the position until a drafted QB is ready to lead us into a new era. I wish everyone on here would exercise some patience and try to "trust the process" a little even if its confusing and weird right now. This is not the time to panic over our direction

    Our franchise is run by a bunch of drunks. I tried to buy in on Rhule, but if this is his plan, it sucks. And at this point, under Tepper, all I see are breadcrumbs that lead me to believe he is an impulsive, meddling owner - to a much greater degree than JR was. I dont really get a sense of a master plan at the end of all these seemingly random impulse moves, but rather a rich big boy who gets to tear down his playset and then fix it how he likes, just to tear it down again. This makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. I understand Cam was hurt the last few years, and ironically not from all of the running he did over the years that everyone was worried about, but in fact because he couldnt be protected in the pocket by two different GMs. But, if he returns to form, he is 2000x the player Bridgewater is and 10,000x the player Allen is. If he returns to form, you're getting an MVP caliber player for relative peanuts. Letting Cam go at this juncture feels like a mistake of a move that we're going to regret down the line. Back to Bridgewater - to add further insult to injury, nothing against Teddy, but Cam fell out of favor after repeatedly getting injured behind a porous OL. Cam, at 6'5" 260 lbs, couldn't stay healthy. Now you expect the same GM to build said OL to keep a much more slight-framed Bridgewater healthy, all while paying him quite handsomely... and mind you, Bridgewater also doesnt have the escapability or arm strength of a Cam... seems like a solid plan. And furthermore, not only do I think you're botching the on-field product up, but you really couldn't have done much worse in the optics and presentation of all of this. We went from he's gone, to "I'm gonna win a Superbowl with him," to Cam declaring with absolute certainty that he was led to believe he would be back, to Hurney being non-committal, to now today, our team signing an inferior replacement and then telling Cam publicly to go find another team while thanking him for how great he is. Sloppy. I will always be a Panthers fan, but I feel less invested than ever before. I'm just tired of bad move after bad move and stupidity running rampant, regardless of who is in charge. We'll see how all of this plans out, and maybe Bridgewater ends up being fine... as a Panthers fan, we have to pull for him and the best outcome, but man, this just looks and feels bad. And finally, thank you for all you have done here, Cam. You are a legend of untouchable stature now and forever. In your prime, there never has been and never will be anyone like you. In a gladiator's sport, you were the ultimate gladiator... one who could put an entire team of 52 other players on your back and carry them to the endzone, time and time again. It has been an honor to see you grow, mature, and become the incredible player and humanitarian you have become - all while wearing the black and blue. There will never be another Cam Newton - the greatest player in Panthers' history. Period.

    Really good stuff here. on Cam: Rhule has watched tape of every game back to 2015. Said 2018 Cam was playing great until the injury, completing 67% of passes. If you look at the position, guys play QB at a high level well beyond 29-30. Cam has always been in a very aggressive offense where he pushes the ball down the field, he sits in the pocket, and our system will be a little more rhythm, get the ball out of his hands and I think he has a chance to be a really special player, just gotta get healthy, because when your foot, shoulder is hurt it affects everything. Good thing about foot injury is his shoulder has had additional time to heal. I think Cam has a tremendous sense of legacy but he doesn’t want his past to the best part of his career, and I always think there is something really special about guys who want to have a sense of legacy. It’s not about I want a new contract, I want this or that, it’s I want to be remembered as one of the greats. And when I see Cam flying in every Monday for treatment and rehab I say to myself “that’s a guy who is serious about football” and if he’s healthy, that allows us to use those picks and resources to build up the other positions on the team. Gotta feel pretty good about Cam and Rhule after hearing this.

    Insights: -This will absolutely be the most random draft ever, lots of people will be completely wrong on this draft because team scouts have not been around each other evaluating and chatting in the normal fashion. This draft will really show which teams are best at studying film, because that is exactly what you are going to get. At the same time, teams are now more influenced more than ever by the media, which also leaves teams vulnerable to disinformation intentionally put out. -This draft is especially loaded in a very odd year, there is tons of value in rounds 2-3, which makes me think teams will be more likely to trade back, and there will be a lot of trades as some teams have "their guy" and some see the extreme value in the extra picks this year. -Tua's draft consensus is complete fuged, he is straight off at least one teams boards, where as others just are not sure at all and feel like the information put out by Tua's agents just isn't accurate. There are serious questions about his ability to hold up at a higher level when he failed to do so in college. This leads to the idea that Herbert is most likely the second QB off the board, because the teams in a position to nab Herbert have somebody he can sit behind for a year and mold the stallion that is Herbert. -There isn't really a consensus in any of these groups of positional players. QB, WR, TE, CB, are all over the place on people's boards, some team's CB3 is another's CB7. This goes along with the first point, there is not a grouping that is generally agreed upon. -The first round is straight up going to be littered with offensive line. This is most definitely the most talented o-line class to come out in a long time, and with a recent drought of draft success at the position, teams are eager to shoot up and go get them. I would expect to see nine or more offensive lineman in the first round. -This is a super talented RB group, but I am hesitant to even put one in the first round (Spoiler: I still am going to) due to all the talent available at high value positions. The degradation of the position itself has left a bitter taste in teams mouths as well, with RBs fizzling out with second contracts, while mid round RBs thrive on a cheap contract. There isn't a CMC or Barkley in this class. Team fits: Andrew Thomas - Bucs Ezra Cleveland - Browns Denzel Mims - Eagles and Broncos Justin Jefferson - Broncos, Eagles, Jaguars Derick Brown - Panthers, Cardinals, Jaguars Tristan Wirfs - Giants, Jets Mock Draft 1.0 2020: 1. Bengals: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU This is an easy pick that should be penciled in. I wasn't the biggest fan of Joe Burrow early in the season, but he certainly grew on me, and the more I watched the more I loved. He has natural instincts to rival the best in the NFL, incredibly accurate deep balls, and the drive to take the team on his back. You don't trade out of a sure fire franchise QB. Only weaknesses on tape is an "okay" arm, sometimes has a hitch in this deep throws, and was bailed out by receivers on balls that hung. Otherwise perfect. Final Grade: 94/100 2. Washington: Chase Young, DE, OSU Unquestionably the best player in the draft, looks like he was molded to play the position, dominant on a whim, and disrupts the entire offensive game plan. Triple teams didn't matter. Ron won't mess this up. Final Grade: 99/100 3. **Trade** Dolphins: Justin Herbert, QB, ORE Wild stallion QB installed in a system that didn't let him grow. Elite arm, elite size, excellent athlete, and has all world ball placement ability. Desperately needs to refine his decision making and understanding of the complexities of timing and evaluating defenses. He is not ready to go quite yet, sit him behind Fitzpatrick and let him learn. More Josh Allen than Mitch Trubisky. Final Grade: 90/100 4. Giants: Tristan Wirfs, T/G/Whatever, IOW This could be another trade down spot, or this could be Jedrick Wills who earns my higher grade. Giants desperately need to protect their franchise QB and mitigate the fumbling issue with help on the line, Wirfs allows this with his versatility and elite athleticism. Final Grade: 93/100 5. Lions: Jeffery Okudah, CB, OHST All signs have been pointing here, and it is a total fit for his grade as well as team need. Lengthy corner who fits in any system you want him in, not many flaws in his evaluation, maybe wish he had more top end speed? He will come in and immediately be a #1 corner in the mold of Jalen Ramsey. Final Grade: 95/100 6. Chargers: Tua Tagovailoa, QB, ALA I really don't know if Tua will go here, higher, or lower. I don't imagine he could drop out of the top 15, he is too talented. Obvious concerns are durability and hero ball. Otherwise extremely efficient, accurate, mobile, great arm, lots of NFL throws. You certainly take a risk taking him, and I'm not sure you do it here. Final Grade: 97/100 (Injuries not factored) 7. Panthers: Isaiah Simmons, LB, CLE I think this is going to be a very tough choice between Simmons and Brown here if we don't trade down. Simmons is the ultimate modern defensive football player, a super mutant with a bottomless tool bag, can cover WRs or play sideline to sideline as a S/LB hybrid. Rhule is looking for all these things in a player, so the fit makes total sense. Just a matter if you want to plug the DT hole here to pass over on a guy like Simmons. Final Grade: 97/100 8. Cardinals: Jedrick Wills, OT, ALA Cardinals get an ultra athletic left/right tackle who can also slide guard without a problem. His mold is ideal for what you want in a tackle, and has fit into it like a glove, a true mauler with high athlete upside. A fixture on any offensive line for the next decade. Final Grade: 99/100 9. Jaguars: Derick Brown, DT, AUB The Jaguars sit pat and land one of the best players in the draft. I could definitely see a trade down here, but it is a bit hard to resist when a Suh clone with high character marks is sitting in your lap. A true game wrecker with a huge motor, he will fit right in to that line that will wreak havoc across the AFC south. Final Grade: 97/100 10. **Trade** Buccaneers: Andrew Thomas, OT, GEO This could be an open season type pick, with the Broncos, Falcons, and Eagles also trying to trade up. Bucs #1 priority in this draft is protecting #12, so they go get an experienced starter at tackle who will plug in right away on either side of the Bucs line. I worry about if his technique and handling speed rushers. Final Grade: 89/100 11. Jets: Mekhi Becton, OT, LOU It's almost too obvious that the Jets will probably sit back and let one of the tackles fall to him. Becton isn't a bad guy to settle on. An ultra athletic bully who commands the corner of the line. Worry about his inexperience within a pass first offense, and has some holes in his tape showing just that. Should be able to iron out whatever technique issues he has with good coaching. Ceiling for him doesn't exist. Final Grade: 91/100 12. Raiders: CeeDee Lamb, WR, OKL This could be any of the top three receivers honestly, it's just whichever one fits the Raider mold better. I feel like Lamb does just that. High character marks, productivity, and explosive playmaking ability. Unique slim yet powerful build, will be hard to tackle even in the NFL, and has a route tree that rivals Jeudy. Final Grade: 92/100 13. 49ers: Jerry Jeudy, WR, ALA Don't be surprised if this is a CB like Henderson or Terrell. 49ers get back to their roots with a big time receiver who excels in route running. Jeudy is the best route runner I have probably ever evaluated, and I think the questions of his physicality and size are pretty ridiculous. He would be the best receiver on that roster the moment he is drafted, and for Kyle Shanahan, that is exactly what he is looking for. Final Grade: 93/100 14. Browns: Ezra Cleveland, OT, BOI Eagles might try and sneak up here for a WR, but I think the Browns don't want to risk losing their guy and take the productive tackle out of Boise. Admittedly, I am not a huge fan of Cleveland (harr harr) because of his rawness and limitations compared to others in the class. I do think he will be a reliable starter at whatever side you put him on though, just watch out when he goes up against elite talent, I think he could be in deep water early in his career. Final Grade: 82/100 15. Broncos: Henry Ruggs, WR, ALA Could also be Jefferson here, I think they are very close talent wise and Denver likes them both. Would not be surprised if Denver trades up to get Ruggs either. Obvious burner in the mold of a Tyreek Hill, can score from anywhere, and is a freak athlete. He is a well rounded WR and is not limited by one thing. Size and durability are the only concern for me. Final Grade: 90/100 16. Falcons: CJ Henderson, CB, FLO Not sure if he lasts this long, but that is the way it is playing out in this mock. Lengthy corner who excels in zone coverage. Brings a unique explosive element to the game, both in tackling and in recovery. Needs to work on tackling form in the open field. Final Grade: 90/100 17. **Trade** Vikings: Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU Another trade spot here for multiple teams. Extremely productive, sneaky fast, explosive, physical and very polished. Has limits on his ceiling which drops him below the big three just a bit, but he fits into Diggs spot easily here. They get a hard worker who will bust his ass to master the craft. Final Grade: 89/100 18. Dolphins: Austin Jackson, OT, USC: Dolphins get a pure LT to mold over the rebuild process and protect Justin Herbert. Jackson has a super high ceiling but absolutely needs to get stronger, the game against AJ Epenesa was proof positive of that. Could very well transition into a franchise LT in the near future. Final grade: 86/100 19. Raiders: Javon Kinlaw, DT, SC If Kinlaw somehow falls this far, I think the Raiders would do flips to the podium. He is an elite player at this level, and feel like he could have easily gone in the top 10. Elite athleticism, strength, all tangled together to create a freak of a nose tackle. Final Grade: 93/100 20. Jaguars: AJ Terrell, CB, CLE Another guy that should probably go higher, but that is just how this is all playing out. Jaguars get their lengthy number 1 corner to build around. Does not quite have the potential that the other corners in this class has, but he does have lenght, productivity, character, and a high football IQ to fit him into this spot as the Jaguars #1 corner. Final Grade: 86/100 21. Eagles: Denzel Mims, WR, BAY Eagles #1 goal this year is to revamp their receiving core and give Wentz some weapons. Mims fits the bill as a tall, athletic, creative, #1 WR. Should thrive within that Philly offense. Final Grade: 85/100 22. Cowboys: Cesar Ruiz, C, MI Have to replace Frederick and this is the guy to do it. The most talented interior offensive lineman not named Wirfs in this class. Should have no problem fitting in the ultra talented Cowboys offensive line, with a great combination of strength and athleticism that reminds me of Ryan Kalil. Final Grade: 85/100 23. Patriots: Jordan Love, QB, UTS They would have to be awfully tempted to grab Chaisson here, but I have to believe NE has to be considering the QB position in the first round. Jordan Love is a high ceiling project who gives you a bunch of mixed tape, and has some serious issues that need to be ironed out. I think Josh McDaniels will be up to the task, and the organization will put their faith in him to get the job done. Final Grade: 84/100 24. Saints: Patrick Queen, LB, LSU The ultra athletic leader of the Tigers defense stays home and fills a desperate need at linebacker. Could play inside or out, with enough speed and smarts to start early and have a long career as the headliner of the Saints defense. Final Grade: 88/100 25. Vikings: K'Lavon Chaisson, Edge, LSU The edge rusher they needed falls right down to the Vikings as they have a dream first round. Aldon Smith like ability, needs to functionally understand the position and be molded into a pass rusher as opposed to an athlete told to chase the QB. Should be able to be a 10+ sack guy year in and year out. Final Grade: 89/100 26. Dolphins: Jonathan Taylor, RB, WIS Dolphins get a feature back who can ease the burden of the offense off of Fitzpatrick/Hebert. Seriously talented, and if this was the 2005 draft probably would have gone in the top 5. Fumble issues obviously need to be corrected, workload is a concern, and the lack of pass catching needs to be fixed. Otherwise feed him the rock and watch him go. Could low key go much higher than this. Final grade: 91/100 27. Seahawks: Yetur Gross-Matos, DE, PENN This could very well just go to Jacksonville for Yannick Ngakoue, either way they need to address one of their lines. YGM is an ideally built defensive end who needs to sure up some technique issues, and probably improve his consistency, but he could develop into an elite edge defender. It certainly speaks to the talent of this draft if you can get him here. Final Grade: 89/100 28. Ravens: Kenneth Murray, LB, OKL Ultra athletic sideline to sideline linebacker. Will make every aspect of the Ravens team speedy and explosive. Another one that would go higher in other drafts, but falls to the Ravens here. Final Grade: 87/100 29. Titans: AJ Epenesa, DE, IOW Another game wrecker on the defensive line, and the Titans steal him. Not as much upside or athleticism as the two that went before him, but he has refined technique, an ultra motor, and bully like strength. Final Grade: 87/100 30. Packers: Isaiah Wilson, OT, GEO The other side of that Georgia offensive line goes here. Packers need sustainability at the position, and Isiah Wilson can bring just that. Not as productive as Thomas, but still a physical monster, and an underrated RT, who will have no problem transitioning into a staple on the offensive line. Probably has a higher ceiling than Thomas. Final Grade: 84/100 31. 49ers: Josh Jones, OT, HOU 49ers have to start thinking about replacing Staley and this would be the spot to do it. Productive, experienced, and with great technique, Jones could slight right into the LT spot upon Staley's exit. Could probably kick into guard this year if needed, but much more of a tackle. 49ers get lucky in a string of awesome tackles. Final Grade: 85/100 32. Chiefs: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, LSU: The rich get richer on offense, though I suspect they might trade out here and try to get him or a corner in the early 2nd. CEH can do it all on the offensive side of the ball and is a unique offensive weapon to force defense to play up even further, digging their own graves for the Tyreek Hill explosion. Final Grade: 87/100

    the collective idiocy of this fan base in wanting to get rid of Cam for a has been veteran or a rookie QB like Trevor lawrence who could bust just like Joe burrow who could bust and just like Tua who could bust is absolutely insane. When cam returns to MVP form i can't wait for you idiots wanting him gone to eat the biggest piece of crow you can find. You people make me sick.

    Because this team isn't a healthy Cam away from competing. We're a healthy Cam, New O-Line, New D-line, and new secondary away. Makes sense to trade the guy with the highest price tag and lowest hit away for draft capital to try to fill those holes.

    I say Rhule and not Hurney because one of the moves involved a Baylor player--Roy. This is a theory---not stating this as a fact, but it is based on the relationship between circumstance and opportunity, highlighted by a critical listening of the post-draft interviews and the actions. Like any good conspiracy theory, it requires and open mind, active imagination, and knowledge of the facts. This is worth the read, if I say so myself, so let it breathe. First of all, I always figured that the BPA concept is BS. What if the BPA is a guard every time? No. Not buying it. Here is how I know, or how I think I know, how Rhule impacted the draft. Spoiler alert: (not really) he is smarter than you think. It all started in the first round, after the Panthers took Derrick Brown. Was he the BPA? Probably. There is your easy, home run, the one Marty can brag about...but remember, they were trying to trade back up into the first round. Why? You have next year's draft, pick #38, 69, etc. you should have had the capital to move up. Why was Marty not able to pull off a trade? He was not offering enough, obviously. But we are talking about a DE--the second-best DE in the draft--and we still stayed with a plan. YGM fell to us, we drafted him, not expecting him to be there---that was BPA, but was it? If we were targeting him and trying to work out a trade for 10 prior picks, was he the best player the entire time? Maybe. FLASHBACK: Marty drove all the way to Hickory to visit Duggers at Lenoir Rhyne. At the same time, most scholars were speculating that the Panthers would take Simmons or Brown. It is my suspicion that the Panthers decided on Brown then, insisting that a big, athletic S available later would suffice. So we know that Rhule was interested in a big, athletic S that can do multiple things. Duggars was perhaps one of them, a compromise for taking Brown over Simmons, and Chinn was likely the other one. Marty wanted to see what he could do. New England knew this, so they traded with the LAC and moved up to take the S they thought we wanted, Duggers, just before our second rounder, pick #38. While that is who we may have been targeting, when YGM dropped into our laps, we grabbed him, knowing there was another big S out there--Chinn from So. Illinois. Only 1. They wanted to trade back up to get Chinn earlier in the second round, but they could not. Why? That is the core of this suspenseful post. They knew they needed a CB--and trading the fourth rounder and the third rounder to move back into the second round for a S would not produce a quality CB--they knew the market for CB in the middle of the draft. Besides- Rhule had already made plans for their fifth and sixth rounders. The only capital they had to move up was a fifth rounder (we had 2--thanks Kyle Allen) and maybe the seventh--and it has little value. So when they had enough money to stop the ice cream truck, the threw the extra fifth rounder on the ledge and got the S they wanted--the big S that would make passing on Simmons much easier to swallow. I have to think that the first round was intended for Brown and the second was originally intended for that big Swiss army knife S/Buffalo Nickel/OLB Simmons clone. The third then would be for the CB. But NE moved in for Duggars, YGM fell, and we had to adjust in good way in the second round. It may be the best second round this team has ever had. So then Pride was there in the fourth round. SInce the plan was to find a CB in round 3, they had knowledge of several mid-draft CBs. Rhule had chatted (virtual visit) with Pride, so he had to be elated when he was there. Here is another interesting catch: Rhule (in a post-draft interview) mentioned chatting with Pride--he said that his wife was impressed with Pride's maturity. After an interview with Herbert, Herbert was asked if the Panthers talked to him---he refused to answer, only to later brag about speaking with the Patriots. On most of visits/virtual chat lists, NOBODY the Panthers chatted or met with is listed, except seventh rounder Stantley Thomas-Oliver. The way those lists are assembled is usually from tweets or prospect comments to reporters. Marty Hurney, meanwhile, attends Herbert's pro day, obviously a decoy. Why did Pride not tweet, "Just got off Zoom with Matt Rhule..." I think the players they wanted were instructed not to speak to anyone in any way about the visit. Remember, Marty's visit to see Duggar? The Patriots traded ahead of us and took him. They do homework. With a ton of CBs at the top of the draft, I think he got a 3rd round talent in round 4 because Pride was not on the Panther radar. Deep stuff. Again, why did we not trade up again? Because we had players targeted in the fifth and sixth rounds and already knew who they were. Rhule knew the fifth round is about where he could probably land XFL FS Robinson. He knew that Robinson was off the grid and that he had no combine numbers or pro days. There were no private workouts--so Rhule figured Robinson would be there in the fifth round, and he grabbed a 21-year old future starting safety, one that (some expert said) would have had a second-round grade if he stayed in college. Rhule, in an interview, admitted that they had checked him out thoroughly, talking to coaches etc along his path. They did their homework as thoroughly as they would a first rounder. Who does all that for a fifth rounder? How do I know it was probably Rhule behind this? Because round six involved the same strategy, but this time, only Rhule possessed critical information about the player--Roy, from Baylor. He knew that Roy had not been invited to the combine. He knew that the Coronavirus cancelled pro days and private workouts. He also knew how strong Roy is, and how fast (4.8) he could run the 40. That 40 time would have sent him up boards quickly, probably (at least) into the middle rounds. So we get Roy--a third or fourth rounder in another year--in the sixth round. So in the seventh round, the actually drafted another CB that they had met with at the EW game and virtually. One more thing: The Panthers ignored the deep areas of the draft on offense (OT, WR) but insist that the draft just fell that way. I am not so sure about that, based on the prioritizing of some of the undrafted free agents we signed. I think we had Bayless (WR) and 2 TEs already committed. Just a hunch. So the BPA theory, if we actually had picks targeting specific players, is not totally accurate. There is my theory on how this went down the way it did. The result? 1. Brown (top 5 pick) 2. YGM (first round talent in second round) 3. Chinn (mid second round talent at the end of the second round) 4. Pride (maybe a third rounder in other years, based on measurables and productivity) 5. Robinson (second-round talent in the fifth round) 6. Roy (third/fourth round projection if he only had a pro day/combine--remember how Poe from Memphis shot up boards with his display of athleticism for a NT?) Conspiracy theory? Too many connected dots. Rhule played the system a bit and won. The end.

    You guys know me by now, if you do not I have a friend who is a scout in the NFL, and I also do my own scouting work on the side (I have a twitter and all that junk hoping to turn it into a career at some point). It's fine if you believe me, it's fine if you don't, I do this thread every year and some of you guys seem to enjoy it, so here are some tidbits for the draft his year. -This is an elite tackle class, one of the best in years, there will be 6-7 tackles taken in the first round, and it would not shock me if 5 of them go in the top 15. -This QB class is comparable to the Baker Mayfield class, Burrow, Tua, and Herbert are all legit QBs, with Jordan Love, Jacob Eason, Jalen Hurts, and James Morgan bringing intrigue on the back end of the first round or somewhere in the 2nd. (Jordan Love will probably go somewhere in the top 20) -The WR class is also elite, but is also deeper than every other class here, which may lead to WRs dropping later than expected because teams feel like you can go get an elite lineman and swing back into the 2nd/3rd and still get WR help. I would guess five WRS go in the first round Jeudy, Lamb, Shenault, Jefferson and Ruggs, but that could change depending on how the board falls. I have nine WRs with a first round grade. -Javon Kinlaw is a guy who could push Derick Brown for the top interior defensive lineman, think Ed Oliver v Quinnen Williams of the last year, it's a lot closer than people realize. -Don't listen to the attempts by leakers to push down Yetur Gross-Matos, this dude is crazy good and will blow up the combine. Not a lot of guys have the wiggle, bend, size, burst, and athleticism he does at the end position. -D'Andre Swift is another guy people may sleep on, he is a better prospect than Josh Jacobs was at the time, his acceleration is next level and will probably go higher than people expect. Some names that should go higher than they are being mocked within the media: Jordan Elliot, DT, MIZZ Josh Jones, OT, HOU Austin Jackson, OT, USC Ross Blacklock, DT, TCU Patrick Queen, LB, LSU Marlon Davidson, DE/DT, AUB Noah Igbinoghene, CB, AUB Isaiah Wilson, OT, GEO Logan Stenberg, G, KEN Adam Trautman, TE, DAY Joshua Kelley, RB, UCLA Anfernee Jennings, EDGE, ALA Denzel Mims, WR, BAY - Mock Draft 1.0 2020: 1. Bengals: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU This is an easy pick that should be penciled in. I wasn't the biggest fan of Joe Burrow early in the season, but he certainly grew on me, and the more I watched the more I loved. He has natural instincts to rival the best in the NFL, incredibly accurate deep balls, and the drive to take the team on his back. You don't trade out of a sure fire franchise QB. Only weaknesses on tape is an "okay" arm, sometimes has a hitch in this deep throws, and was bailed out by receivers on balls that hung. Otherwise perfect. Final Grade: 94/100 2. Washington: Chase Young, DE, OSU Unquestionably the best player in the draft, looks like he was molded to play the position, dominant on a whim, and disrupts the entire offensive game plan. Triple teams didn't matter. Ron won't mess this up. Final Grade: 99/100 3. *Trade* Dolphins: Justin Herbert, QB, ORE Wild stallion QB installed in a system that didn't let him grow. Elite arm, elite size, excellent athlete, and has all world ball placement ability. Desperately needs to refine his decision making and understanding of the complexities of timing and evaluating defenses. He is not ready to go quite yet, sit him behind Fitzpatrick and let him learn. More Josh Allen than Mitch Trubisky. Final Grade: 90/100 4. Giants: Tristan Wirfs, T/G/Whatever, IOW This could be another trade down spot, or this could be Jedrick Wills who earns my higher grade. Giants desperately need to protect their franchise QB and mitigate the fumbling issue with help on the line, Wirfs allows this with his versatility and elite athleticism. Final Grade: 93/100 5. Lions: Jeffery Okudah, CB, OHST All signs have been pointing here, and it is a total fit for his grade as well as team need. Lengthy corner who fits in any system you want him in, not many flaws in his evaluation, maybe wish he had more top end speed? He will come in and immediately be a #1 corner in the mold of Jalen Ramsey. Final Grade: 95/100 6. Chargers: Tua Tagovailoa, QB, ALA I really don't know if Tua will go here, higher, or lower. I don't imagine he could drop out of the top 15, he is too talented. Obvious concerns are durability and hero ball. Otherwise extremely efficient, accurate, mobile, great arm, lots of NFL throws. You certainly take a risk taking him, and I'm not sure you do it here. Final Grade: 97/100 (Injuries not factored) 7. Panthers: Isaiah Simmons, LB, CLE I think this is going to be a very tough choice between Simmons and Brown here if we don't trade down. Simmons is the ultimate modern defensive football player, a super mutant with a bottomless tool bag, can cover WRs or play sideline to sideline as a S/LB hybrid. Rhule is looking for all these things in a player, so the fit makes total sense. Just a matter if you want to plug the DT hole here to pass over on a guy like Simmons. Final Grade: 97/100 8. Cardinals: Jedrick Wills, OT, ALA Cardinals get an ultra athletic left/right tackle who can also slide guard without a problem. His mold is ideal for what you want in a tackle, and has fit into it like a glove, a true mauler with high athlete upside. A fixture on any offensive line for the next decade. Final Grade: 99/100 9. Jaguars: Derick Brown, DT, AUB The Jaguars sit pat and land one of the best players in the draft. I could definitely see a trade down here, but it is a bit hard to resist when a Suh clone with high character marks is sitting in your lap. A true game wrecker with a huge motor, he will fit right in to that line that will wreak havoc across the AFC south. Final Grade: 97/100 10. *Trade* Buccaneers: Andrew Thomas, OT, GEO This could be an open season type pick, with the Broncos, Falcons, and Eagles also trying to trade up. Bucs #1 priority in this draft is protecting #12, so they go get an experienced starter at tackle who will plug in right away on either side of the Bucs line. I worry about if his technique and handling speed rushers. Final Grade: 89/100 11. Jets: Mekhi Becton, OT, LOU It's almost too obvious that the Jets will probably sit back and let one of the tackles fall to him. Becton isn't a bad guy to settle on. An ultra athletic bully who commands the corner of the line. Worry about his inexperience within a pass first offense, and has some holes in his tape showing just that. Should be able to iron out whatever technique issues he has with good coaching. Ceiling for him doesn't exist. Final Grade: 91/100 12. Raiders: CeeDee Lamb, WR, OKL This could be any of the top three receivers honestly, it's just whichever one fits the Raider mold better. I feel like Lamb does just that. High character marks, productivity, and explosive playmaking ability. Unique slim yet powerful build, will be hard to tackle even in the NFL, and has a route tree that rivals Jeudy. Final Grade: 92/100 13. 49ers: Jerry Jeudy, WR, ALA Don't be surprised if this is a CB like Henderson or Terrell. 49ers get back to their roots with a big time receiver who excels in route running. Jeudy is the best route runner I have probably ever evaluated, and I think the questions of his physicality and size are pretty ridiculous. He would be the best receiver on that roster the moment he is drafted, and for Kyle Shanahan, that is exactly what he is looking for. Final Grade: 93/100 14. Browns: Ezra Cleveland, OT, BOI Eagles might try and sneak up here for a WR, but I think the Browns don't want to risk losing their guy and take the productive tackle out of Boise. Admittedly, I am not a huge fan of Cleveland (harr harr) because of his rawness and limitations compared to others in the class. I do think he will be a reliable starter at whatever side you put him on though, just watch out when he goes up against elite talent, I think he could be in deep water early in his career. Final Grade: 82/100 15. Broncos: Henry Ruggs, WR, ALA Could also be Jefferson here, I think they are very close talent wise and Denver likes them both. Would not be surprised if Denver trades up to get Ruggs either. Obvious burner in the mold of a Tyreek Hill, can score from anywhere, and is a freak athlete. He is a well rounded WR and is not limited by one thing. Size and durability are the only concern for me. Final Grade: 90/100 16. Falcons: CJ Henderson, CB, FLO Not sure if he lasts this long, but that is the way it is playing out in this mock. Lengthy corner who excels in zone coverage. Brings a unique explosive element to the game, both in tackling and in recovery. Needs to work on tackling form in the open field. Final Grade: 90/100 17. *Trade* Vikings: Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU Another trade spot here for multiple teams. Extremely productive, sneaky fast, explosive, physical and very polished. Has limits on his ceiling which drops him below the big three just a bit, but he fits into Diggs spot easily here. They get a hard worker who will bust his ass to master the craft. Final Grade: 89/100 18. Dolphins: Austin Jackson, OT, USC: Dolphins get a pure LT to mold over the rebuild process and protect Justin Herbert. Jackson has a super high ceiling but absolutely needs to get stronger, the game against AJ Epenesa was proof positive of that. Could very well transition into a franchise LT in the near future. Final grade: 86/100 19. Raiders: Javon Kinlaw, DT, SC If Kinlaw somehow falls this far, I think the Raiders would do flips to the podium. He is an elite player at this level, and feel like he could have easily gone in the top 10. Elite athleticism, strength, all tangled together to create a freak of a nose tackle. Final Grade: 93/100 20. Jaguars: AJ Terrell, CB, CLE Another guy that should probably go higher, but that is just how this is all playing out. Jaguars get their lengthy number 1 corner to build around. Does not quite have the potential that the other corners in this class has, but he does have lenght, productivity, character, and a high football IQ to fit him into this spot as the Jaguars #1 corner. Final Grade: 86/100 21. Eagles: Denzel Mims, WR, BAY Eagles #1 goal this year is to revamp their receiving core and give Wentz some weapons. Mims fits the bill as a tall, athletic, creative, #1 WR. Should thrive within that Philly offense. Final Grade: 85/100 22. Cowboys: Cesar Ruiz, C, MI Have to replace Frederick and this is the guy to do it. The most talented interior offensive lineman not named Wirfs in this class. Should have no problem fitting in the ultra talented Cowboys offensive line, with a great combination of strength and athleticism that reminds me of Ryan Kalil. Final Grade: 85/100 23. Patriots: Jordan Love, QB, UTS They would have to be awfully tempted to grab Chaisson here, but I have to believe NE has to be considering the QB position in the first round. Jordan Love is a high ceiling project who gives you a bunch of mixed tape, and has some serious issues that need to be ironed out. I think Josh McDaniels will be up to the task, and the organization will put their faith in him to get the job done. Final Grade: 84/100 24. Saints: Patrick Queen, LB, LSU The ultra athletic leader of the Tigers defense stays home and fills a desperate need at linebacker. Could play inside or out, with enough speed and smarts to start early and have a long career as the headliner of the Saints defense. Final Grade: 88/100 25. Vikings: K'Lavon Chaisson, Edge, LSU The edge rusher they needed falls right down to the Vikings as they have a dream first round. Aldon Smith like ability, needs to functionally understand the position and be molded into a pass rusher as opposed to an athlete told to chase the QB. Should be able to be a 10+ sack guy year in and year out. Final Grade: 89/100 26. Dolphins: Jonathan Taylor, RB, WIS Dolphins get a feature back who can ease the burden of the offense off of Fitzpatrick/Hebert. Seriously talented, and if this was the 2005 draft probably would have gone in the top 5. Fumble issues obviously need to be corrected, workload is a concern, and the lack of pass catching needs to be fixed. Otherwise feed him the rock and watch him go. Could low key go much higher than this. Final grade: 91/100 27. Seahawks: Yetur Gross-Matos, DE, PENN This could very well just go to Jacksonville for Yannick Ngakoue, either way they need to address one of their lines. YGM is an ideally built defensive end who needs to sure up some technique issues, and probably improve his consistency, but he could develop into an elite edge defender. It certainly speaks to the talent of this draft if you can get him here. Final Grade: 89/100 28. Ravens: Kenneth Murray, LB, OKL Ultra athletic sideline to sideline linebacker. Will make every aspect of the Ravens team speedy and explosive. Another one that would go higher in other drafts, but falls to the Ravens here. Final Grade: 87/100 29. Titans: AJ Epenesa, DE, IOW Another game wrecker on the defensive line, and the Titans steal him. Not as much upside or athleticism as the two that went before him, but he has refined technique, an ultra motor, and bully like strength. Final Grade: 87/100 30. Packers: Isaiah Wilson, OT, GEO The other side of that Georgia offensive line goes here. Packers need sustainability at the position, and Isiah Wilson can bring just that. Not as productive as Thomas, but still a physical monster, and an underrated RT, who will have no problem transitioning into a staple on the offensive line. Probably has a higher ceiling than Thomas. Final Grade: 84/100 31. 49ers: Josh Jones, OT, HOU 49ers have to start thinking about replacing Staley and this would be the spot to do it. Productive, experienced, and with great technique, Jones could slight right into the LT spot upon Staley's exit. Could probably kick into guard this year if needed, but much more of a tackle. 49ers get lucky in a string of awesome tackles. Final Grade: 85/100 32. Chiefs: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, LSU: The rich get richer on offense, though I suspect they might trade out here and try to get him or a corner in the early 2nd. CEH can do it all on the offensive side of the ball and is a unique offensive weapon to force defense to play up even further, digging their own graves for the Tyreek Hill explosion. Final Grade: 87/100

    For not keeping someone 31 other teams felt was not worth a 7th round pick. Kyle freaking Allen on a one year deal commanded a 5th rounder, all I see on twitter is shame on Rhule, Tepper, Hurney. If that is the case, there are 32 fools who think Cam is not worth the risk of signing. Even after all that, no reports of teams beating down his door to sign him. All I've heard for 3 years is just wait until he is healthy. It never happened, now apparently a doctor in Atlanta passed him in a physical, that doesn't necessarily mean the Panthers doctor would. You can pass a physical without having full capacity of throwing that you had before an injury. I'm not trying to crown David Tepper as owner of the year, but we have not played 1 preseason game under his staff. Year 1 was last year, it was too late in 2018 for him to make any changes, thus he spent 2018 fixing many business issues this team had. If Cam was anywhere near the level that he was in 2017, we would've kept him. The beginning of 2018 was a farce, the Steelers exposed the Panthers ability to not be able to throw more then 10-20 yards and the rest of the NFL capitalized. The man is on a diet many nutritionists have publicly reached out to him and said is likely affecting his football ability. It's the truth, the Panthers are a business and are not going to publicly come out and defend themselves. Things happened and we moved on, let's play some football before we declare Tepper as Dan Snyder. P.S. Richardson seemed uninvolved with the team until the end of his ownership. If you think owners (barring maybe Shad Khan in JAX) don't have any input or force any decisions on teams, you're a fool. Kraft forced Bill to trade Jimmy G, heck, Davis forced the Raiders to take Jamarcus Russell over Calvin Johnson. If Cam has some miracle comeback, I'm not going to flame our FO. Obviously every NFL team feels the same and I won't get mad if he does it on a 1 year- 5 million prove it deal.

    just look at the difference between how Cam and Lamar Jackson have been treated by their teams You have a freak athlete, once in a generation type talent at the QB position. What do you do? Baltimore: Let's devise a new offense that maximizes his strengths against defense's weakness and minimizes the contact he takes Carolina: QB POWER BABY RIGHT INTO THE LINE

    And once again, if Cam is healthy, you roll forward with him rather than roll the dice with a draft pick. It's a no brainer. Cam is a phenom. You keep him until he can't answer the bell anymore.

    The Evolution of the Odd Dime: Baylor vs Oklahoma Pt. 1 – Coverages (2019) so this is a hugely detailed article that you might need to take a coffee break to read. I'll post a few snippets, but it's quite an exhaustive look at how Phil Snow's defense evolved coming from Temple and adjusting to the zany Big-12 landscape. what do you think, does it maybe give a window into why the defensive roster is being organized as it is? anyways there's a LOT more and I probably shouldn't give you a hundred quotes that you'll ignore. save the article for when you have a few minutes, it's quite enlightening, especially since we haven't heard a ton from Phil Snow on the subject. this is a great opportunity to begin to see what the new Panthers defense might very well look like. with all the spread offenses invading the NFL, it seems the Panthers' staff is well equipped to anticipate the evolution in offenses, and be prepared for it, both schematically and with personnel.

    Truth is, even as much as I like and respect Olsen, giving him his last contract was a mistake. We have a tendency to hold onto old and injured guys out of respect and slow the development of replacements like Shaq Thompson and Ian Thomas.
