Carolina Panthers Trade Up Select Oklahoma's Daryl Williams

Recommended Posts

On one hand, I'm not happy we're giving up so many picks when we have so many needs. On the other hand, we have finally begun to address glaring holes on the offense to give us more stability on both sides of the ball. In any case, welcome to the panthers Daryl.

 

 

Having low round picks do no good, if we draft them and they they never start.We drafted a LB,WR and OT that should project into above average starters,plus a possible backup RB and a LB that should at least upgrade our special teams.

Before the draft even began, this guy was my favorite RT prospect. He LOVES football and plays with such immense power it's insane. He can be what Jeff Otah was supposed to be if he wasn't a lazy slob. Love this pick. He will be our week 1 starter at RT, mark my words.

not sure about that, remmers did a good job at RT last year late.

I would rather have Remmers at LT than Oher right now. Oher needs to show he can play the spot before the first game of the season.

I let Oher and Remmers fight it out during pre-season. Split the reps. Then who ever played better should get the nod.

Agreed. Remmers simply had a better season than Oher, i dont like the fact of handing him a starting spot simply because we signed him. Great coaching staff but one thing i dont like is how they cater to veteran pick ups who need to prove they can play

Based on what other than wishful thinking?

Point is to get guys who will make the team or at least compete to make the team. DG apparently thinks this draft is trash. Players don't "fill a need" if they don't make the squad. But if you really look at it the major needs we had...we filled.

OT - Oher, Williams, Stanford kid

WR - Boykin, Ginn, Funchess

ST - Shaq, Mayo, Artis Payne, Ginn

RB - Artis Payne

We hopefully addressed our problem with scoring inside the 25. Addressed our terrible tackling and blocking on ST. Shaq wasn't a need as much as he was a luxury but having him make Chancellor-type plays for us will huge.

probably based on how both Oher and Remmers played RT for the last few years and Remmers did better (although Remmers had much more limited starts so a smaller sample size)

Williams was a monster in the sugar bowl vs Alabama 2 years ago on the Left side. Kid is going to be a helluva RT for us. Otah type road grader also with just enough skills to be a god pass blocker from the right side. HUGE get.

We like having a RT at both our LT and RT spots. Helps the run game, helps our running QB, and helps Shula/Cam get the ball out quicker on pass plays

for 2014, we moved a meh RT in Bell to LT

for 2015, we have at least three options at LT:

move a RT that was a worse RT than Bell to LT (Oher)

move a RT that was a better RT than Oher to LT (Remmers)

move a stud RT prospect in Daryl Williams to LT

won't be surprised if Williams wins. He's more athletic than Oher is now in his old age. Oher was a good prospect back in the day because of his athleticism (and it allowed him to do well as a rookie), but as Oher lost a step and his athleticism declined, he got worse and worse because his technique sucks and he doesn't take well to coaching

Williams is a better athlete than Oher now and apparently takes to coaching better (at Oklahoma at least). Of the RTs we are looking at for our LT spot (Oher, Remmers, Williams), Williams should win the spot. And don't count out young Martin. We didn't know we could get him when we got Oher. Gettleman might very well have wanted Martin over Oher in the 1st place

Lol?

Oher is just 28. He is in the prime of his career.

    • Yeah, and he took Butler when we had needs all over the roster and had Star and Short in their primes starting.
    • My story isn't unique by any means. I come from a family of high achieving STEM degrees (PHD, Masters), but I always hated math and science as a kid so in undergrad I studied political science and history. Really didn't think I could do much with that so I went to law school. That is where the debt really racked up (hardly had any for undergrad). Even going to a state school like UNC, like I did, you're gonna come out with 100k unless you have scholarships and stuff like that. I think that is pretty par for the course for most graduate degrees though. If you're gonna doing anything where you feel like you need a graduate degree to get ahead you're gonna have to prepare for a lot of debt. Definitely can't knock anyone for being debt averse. At times I do wish I would have told my younger self to work harder at math and science so I could have gotten a STEM degree in college. I would probably be making the same or more than I am now, but with little to no debt. At the same time though I think passion matters in success and that stuff just does not excite me.
