  1. There's a good breakdown on this topic over at The Riot Report. Essentially, you have a very good player with no replacement on the roster (far from a guarantee of a replacement outside the roster) and no depth at the position. https://theriotreport.com/bradberry-james-salary-contract-panthers/ Good deal would probably be if he is snagged for less than $11.5M/year.
  2. Yeah that's the correct take. I don't see how you can make these comparison off those side by sides but the media needs some talking points.
  3. https://ftw.usatoday.com/2019/06/lsu-creeper-simulated-pressure-dave-aranda-nflpass-rush-coverage Good article explaining what to likely expect from the new hybrid defense not only here but probably all around the NFL in the near future. I remember watching New England abuse KC in the first half of the AFC Championship game with these types of pressures. Our last 2 drafts in particular have made it pretty obvious that we're looking to go more of this route.
  4. Cam, Luke, Olsen. Turner replaces Kalil, Short replaces Peppers, Reid replaces Davis. Jones likely it for ST.
  5. https://www.panthers.com/news/ota-observations-cam-newton-just-going-through-the-rehab-process –Defensive ends Bryan Cox Jr. and Efe Obada both look like they’ve added a good amount of bulk. It makes sense considering they could each be asked to help as traditional 4-3 ends or as ends in odd fronts. But Cox Jr. said he’s only put on about 2 pounds. Obada, though, is plus-15. ....FYI when thinking about where to slot these two.
  6. He's a good player and a valuable weapon to this offense but he is nothing like Diggs and he couldn't create with his route running (which was far from diverse and well-run like the article states) in his rookie year. Even the route chart they use to try and further their point in the article is just full of drag routes. Just issues with the article not a first year player.
  7. Seeing some high praise for his ability to win deep and stretch the field in Minnesota last year.
  8. Must have picked it up at Ohio State. Remember hearing it during the draft.
  9. I predict 11.6 wins and a greater than 90% chance of making the playoffs. I have the same amount of credibility as those projections.
  10. The SEC is the conference that is widely regarded as having the most NFL talent and it's been backed up come the draft as it has had the most selections every year for 13 years running. The conference set a record this year too with 64 selections. This isn't a bad strategy either because the players should be the easiest projections to the NFL. Say player might have 1000 snaps of tape for evaluators to study but not all of them are against NFL talent, in fact in the cases of small school prospects, maybe only a handful are. Statistically, you should increase your odds of hitting on these picks by having more chances to evaluate a player against the talent they would see on Sundays. 5 of the 7 selections the Panthers selected this year were from the SEC. The 2 that weren't, did come from a power 5 conference so they still got plenty of opportunities to put quality tape up, but they also had multiple games against the top conference. Burns had 4 games across three seasons against the SEC (plus 3 more against Clemson and another against Notre Dame) and Grier had 5 games (4 while at Florida) There also seems to present a difference in style from the GMs. Gettleman, known for his scouting ability while with the Giants (say what you will about that in Carolina) used 4/27 picks across his four drafts on players from the SEC. He also used almost 1/3rd (8/27) on players from outside the power 5 conferences. In the two drafts since Hurney's return, over half of his picks have now come from the SEC (8/15) and he hasn't used a single selection on a player outside the power 5 conferences. I don't know if it speaks to a greater gap in talent from the power 5 to small schools since the college playoff system started but I do know the money being spent on facilities, coaches and whatnot to get top talent out of high school is ridiculous in the SEC and a bunch of the other top schools in the power 5. Something to potentially monitor with Hurney at the helm and in drafts going forward.
  11. What if he can be used at both positions like moving to nickel when the matchup deems it appropriate.
  12. Pass. He can be resigned for much cheaper than the 5th year option if you're so inclined to bring him back. Still thinking he's an ideal candidate for a trade this off-season.
