I'm just laughing at comparison. Garrett isn't a fast receiver or the 'burner' type. He's a possession receiver.

We'll see soon enough.

Speed kills, but so does the inability to catch.

On an off note, Byrd may be the fastest on the team. Having Byrd and Ginn would suffice for our need for speed.

but if we were to get Cpat he would blow all them off speed wise

That may become truth from the theory, but his 4.53 was not that far off of the 4.51 of Brown. Plus, he did a lot of damage on the outside in college last year with 725 yards and 7 TDs coming on passes 20 yards or more downfield. Sometimes those long legs just take more time to get up into high gear, but once they do...

Of course speed is but one factor. We'll see what happens.

Brah, watch game film. If you think Garrett is as fast as Hill, then you're beyond delusional.

The operative word in Wide Receiver, is receiver.. Hill has hands so bad the Venus De Milo feels bad for him

Dude, Garrett is a possession receiver. There's nothing to see. 40 times mean diddly squat.

Not arguing with you dude. This is silly. He can catch and he's pretty damned fast for his size period. For u to assume I'm speaking out of my booty hole is crazy. He burned top CB talent on 9 routes. I guess you're calling him a possession receiver because he can catch? It doesn't even matter. Key will beat out Hill for the job easily. 

You don't have to agree, and I won't brag when I'm right.

Actually, he is probably slower than all of them, but I believe he may be the most dynamic.

I'm truly rooting for them all (even Brown, contrary to popular belief). At the end of the day, I just want the best talent out there on the field and the ones with the greatest upside on the sidelines.

Defensive Line (9)

Kony Ealy

Charles Johnson

Star Lotulelei

Kawann Short

Vernon Butler

Paul Soliai

Mario Addison

Wes Horton

Ryan Delaire

My initial thought is that it's very surprising to me you think Kyle Love doesn't get a spot. I thought he played very well against the run last year. Considering we have the luxury of moving KK to the outside for a snap here and there I think big Dave would be more likely to keep 5 DTs than 5 DEs. If Delaire proves to be a true asset in camp I think it's time for Wes Horton to go.

Cahnuh (5)

Bene Benwikere

James Bradberry

Daryl Worley

Zack Sanchez

Lou Young

Note: I just do not see the Panthers signing a veteran cahnuh of note. They would not have cut Boykin if that was in the cards. The Panthers like Lou Young very much. Could be a nice season for him. 

I was also surprised, to a lesser extent, about not seeing Robert McClain on this list. I thought he played well for us down the stretch and he has true NFL playoff experience now. With that said, I know zero about Lou Young. How does his speed and athleticism compare to Bene and co?

Garrett will make this roster some way, some how.  I like Hill and wish he would fulfill the potential be possesses but what I am seeing from Garrett the dude is a football player and he fits our scheme.  If he balls out don't be surprised you see Hill gone.

I don't get why any tall X or Z is considered "possession" nowadays but I digress.  I see nice balance in someone like Garrett.   I'm honestly a bit tired of the Hill experiment so he better show up or we need to move past him this year.

I saw this same type of comment on McClain on Kevin Patra's comments earlier this week oh his article on the release of Boykin. McClain was the obvious weak link of the backfield. He came off the couch and played like it. That's what got him released from the team in the first place. He's not good. Time to move him out and be done with him and give the opportunity to someone with more upside.

I agree with the inital roster, except I would say that Byrd or Garrett will make the roster over Hill.

Again, we're trailing off...

I will admit Hill is a possession receiver....... if he's on the receiving end of a doobie..

    • If they would have had the #5 pick then they could have had so many teams trying to trade up there for a QB. They'd be ahead of the Chargers and Dolphins who both need QB's. The Dolphins have 3 first round draft picks this year. That would have been such a good haul, potentially grabbing those picks had they won more games. They'd have to leapfrog several teams. Unfortunately at #7 both the chargers and the Dolphins don't need to move up. The only scenario i'd see is if they pick the QB's they need and the Dolphins pull the trigger on a OT to protect their QB, the Panthers would get the 18th and 26th, plus a lower round pick to move up to #7 if the draft board falls to where no OT was taken prior to the Panthers pick.      The thing is, that if the Panthers decide to stay with Cam, they need to protect his blind side and if the best OT is on the board, I don't think they would give up that pick for 2 first rounders. I wouldn't. Especially when it's the best tackle of the draft. I don't know.    IF they stay at the pick and Brown is available or Thomas...Take Thomas. 
    • Becton went 4th Ovr in Daniel jeremiahs last mock- I’m gonna go out on a limb and say he isn’t available in the third  
    • This has all been thoroughly debated examined and tested by people who are experts in the field. Noll is not one guy out on a limb. The bottom line is the consensus amongst respected experts is that sports stadiums do not provide the economic impact they claim to. https://research.stlouisfed.org/publications/page1-econ/2017-05-01/the-economics-of-subsidizing-sports-stadiums/ https://ritholtz.com/2017/07/economics-subsidizing-sports-stadiums/ That article was written by a member of the Federal Reserve. Surely he doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to money and economic impact. Here are a few quotes from that article I would particularly draw to your attention:  "When surveyed, 86 percent of economists agreed that “local and state governments in the U.S. should eliminate subsidies to professional sports franchises.” "In a 2017 poll, 83 percent of the economists surveyed agreed that “Providing state and local subsidies to build stadiums for professional sports teams is likely to cost the relevant taxpayers more than any local economic benefits that are generated.” It's not that stadiums don't bring in any money, or have any economic impact, no one is arguing that. But the reality is that the numbers show that impact is less than the cost of the subsidies provided, by large margins. This is why the vast majority of economists say they should be discontinued. Your math about tickets is irrelevant because all of that revenue goes into the private owners pockets. The point is that fewer games means fewer times people are coming to the area and having that impact you are talking about. That's why more games has more impact. Ticket prices and sales are irrelevant because we're talking about the impact on the economy, not actual ticket sales. It's not about how many tickets are bought at what prices, it's about how many times people stay in hotels, eat in restaurants, etc etc etc. And the people who measure these things and look at the data far more than you or I say it's not close, stadiums are a bad deal for taxpayers as an economic investment. Bottom line, if a cardiologist tells you you'd better stop eating fried foods or you're not likely to last another five years, do you do what the highly trained expert says, or do you sit there and argue with him about whether the burgers you cook on the grill should count or not?
