Round 1 - Carolina Panthers Select Shaq Thompson

Recommended Posts

People also seem to forget that it took TD several years to develop into a starter-level player. And TD was, IMO, a much better football player with better natural instincts.

Whether you hate the pick or love it, really doesn't matter... He's probably going to be forced to start and play regardless.

Why won't you guys believe Gettleman when he says he will stick to his board.

I believe him. It'd just be nice to see him put some OTs on his board for a freaking change(and trade up to get one, if need be). Maybe he can resign Byron Bell.

He'll play a safety position while we are in Nickel.

A position which he's never played? A 1st rounder?

Forgive me if I'm not blossoming with joy.

We could of drafted a kicker in the first and the yes-men in here would have said it was a great pick

We are like the jets of the NFC. We have a ton of picks I don't understand why can't we use the first couple of picks on offense and the late picks on defense.

And too top it off the Colt get Dorsett. I never want to hear Cam get compared to any of these other QBs until this team commits to him

There are still plenty of WRs left guys

We pick at the end of the second round, who's going to be left? I'm betting we go defense again.

Like I've said...

Shaq will be weak side LB in 4-3 and the SS in nickel!

Love it!

 

and Green Bay is licking their chops at this. with players like Cobb, Beckham, Jackson, etc playing in the slot, i just do not see Thompson being able to stay in coverage vs them.

I think we'll see a lot of 4-2-5 with Thompson at SS sneaking up to play OLB sometimes

Yep. Good luck opposing offensive coordinators scheming against that.

It is exactly what Seattle has with Chancellor. His pick six against cam probably sealed shaq being our pick.

In DG I trust. Until he misses terribly on a 1st round pick, I will continue to trust his decisions. At the end of the day, he gets paid to do this, the rest of us just don't have anything better to do.

 

This was a super safe pick with tremendous upside. 

 

Welcome to Charlotte Shaq!

Is that the same prick who gave us a C minus last year for picking 5 eventual starters out of 6 picks ?

 

Prisco is probably the worst national NFL beat writer in the business. He's also a writer, with no professional football scouting experience and probably retired as an athlete when he turned 15. His job isn't to provide scouting reports to NFL teams or advise management on who to draft. His job is to get you to read his article and click on his company's website. 

 

Prisco is a moron and I rarely read his stuff. Even the so called "best" in the business like Peter King can still come across as a whiny ass from time to time. These guys are writers, not NFL management and their opinions should be taken as such, because most of the time they're wrong. 

 

If people like Mel Kiper, Todd McShay, and WFNZ fanboy Kevin Weidel were such great scouts and talent evaluaters - you better believe their asses would be working for an NFL team.

Lol! I'm in a bar in Milwaukee & have a bunch of Packer fans congratulating me on my team making a great pick. Meanwhile, on the Huddle...

 

I was reading the comments on the pre draft Shaq article. Alot of fans from alot of teams wanted Shaq in the first round! I trust Gettleman! And welcome Shaq!

I understand the frustration. But remember that most fans of every team in the NFL want them to draft WR. They are the exotic pick that people think will just turn the whole thing around.

I've made fun of the jets for years for drafting defensive players to their awesome defense while their offense cost them seasons but you just made me realize that we are them

Grab Fisher/Strong/Smith (Devin or Preston) in the 2nd, then Duke/Hardy/Flowers in the 3rd and I'm stoked.

Gettleman will never commit to building around Cam. It's seriously like he's trying to sabotage his career.

    • anyone who takes your calls for "community policing" seriously after seeing your reaction to that video and the rappin' cop's video is a rube. you don't belong here. you're not here in good faith. you're PR. i want to know why abusers are drawn to the profession and not weeded out. it's almost as if they have traits desirable to the position  it's literally best practice to assume so until proven otherwise. they have done nothing to curb the spread within their departments. it's almost as if they have traits desirable to the position  philadelphia, la, ny, chicago, baltimore, cleveland, columbus, st louis, phoenix, milwaukee, boston, etc it's everywhere. your attempts to diminish that won't go unnoticed. certainly not bad enough to compel you to do anything about it. best we've gotten is a rappin' cop who was shortly after exposed. you want "communication" and "community policing" up until it's time to blame a black victim for yet another cop's aggression. you don't have any answers that acknowledge the uh very obvious role police play in these cases. you're here to run cover for bad cops. the end.
    • Because I was addressing one specific clip here to try to understand what the issue with it was from your perspective because it seemed pretty cut and dry on the side of not being unreasonable. And you still haven't spoken on that.  Yeah, domestic violence sucks. Yeah, domestic violence by cops sucks. What the hell do you want there? Yeah, white supremacists suck. So now all cops are presumed to be white supremacists? Or cops are presumed to be spouse abusers? Philly has always been a hell hole, why are you shocked there?  Weird how despite the fact that I can agree when things are bad while not hating every cop because I realize individuals are responsible for their own actions, you seem to think I support those idiots. Of course, admitting that would show that you're actually the problem here but whatever.
