Enter Sandland

Recommended Posts



I called it a bit after the draft... but this dude right hurrrr is going to do good things for the Panthers for years to come... He reminds me of Kuechly, but on the other side of the ball.

And thanks for the title... I will now forever hear "SAY YOUR PRAYERS, LITTLE ONE, DON'T FORGET MY SON, TO INCLUDE EVERYOOOONNNEEEUUHHH" every time Sandland is mentioned from now on...

yep, and as Rivera said in a video a few days before the draft, "it's going to be hard [for newcomers] to make this team. we're not drafting guys to cut them, we're drafting them to help us win." so it's prudent to consider how a guy like Sandland will fit the team. he seems headed straight for the Brockel/Swole role as 4-team ST guy + goal-line packages. at least to start. then, maybe he'll usurp Dickson or replace him.

I'm excited about him. A young promising player to groom under Olsen is just what we need.

Also...that Eubank QB looks like he is Cam sized. Looks interesting.

This kid is going to be good. I'm eagerly awaiting a lilsmitty09 video of 'Enter Sandman' to him catching passes.

Yes, I too am really glad we drafted a TE to groom under Olsen.  Key in our offense.

Eubank too intrigues me.  If he shows promise, I could possibly see us keeping him as a developmental QB on the PS.  But heck, even our PS spots are going to be at a premium.  We have more talent than spots available.

He's the draft pick that I'm most excited about. Butler is money in the bank, he never should have been available at 30. The beauty of triple dipping at CB is that certainly 1 of them will work out opposite Bene (even if Sanchez is more of a nickle role, Boykin can slide outside). That leaves Beau! I was big on drafting a TE, first Henry, then Vannett. To get one with so much up side with next to the last pick could be the ultimate steal!

Boy's got big arms.

I see he also has the Delhomme tongue thing going.

I like everything I've seen and read about him. If he can block better than Dickson(which isn't hard) I wouldn't be surprised to see him as our #2 tight end sooner rather than later.

I believe in our system he'd be more of an F-back, but that's splitting hairs. Dickson and Swole were kinda thrust into the blocking role as a last resort when Brockel was injured. I see either Sandland or McGee taking the third receiving TE role, with Bonnet and Rockhead pushing Simonson for the blocking TE/FB position.

That experience at Miami means a lot. He also spent some time with Olsen previously, wouldn't surprise me if he put in a good word for him.

 

He can't be worse than Dickson. I'm excited.

He played there too but bounced because Clive Walford was untouchable at TE. 

Which seems like a big risk transferring to a much smaller school but it paid of as he said himself. I believe he has all the tools to similar (not jumping the gun) to Wesley walls.
