CAP vs Barner

Recommended Posts

Typically we have carried 3 RBs with a FB in the mix. CMC and Anderson are locks at RB. Armahgeddon is a lock at FB from what we hear at mini camp - Norv seems to be utilizing him a ton more.

So when it comes down to the 3rd RB spot - Are we all so certain CAP will make the team? Barner brings the added value of KR/PR ability. That alone has me leaning more towards Barner. He's much more of a 3rd down, screen catching, quick-shifty kinda guy. Also don't sleep on Elijah Hood from Carolina. Could be a nice camp battle to watch in Spartanburg.

Btw, we still doing the Spartanburg thing next year??

Yeah, Hood looks like a reach to make the practice squad unless he figures out how to catch and hang on to the ball.

The infatuation with Hood is just a bunch of overly excited UNC fans not seeing the obvious. Not every good college player translates to the NFL.

It was the same with Clemson fans last year and the LB(Boulware) who was CLEARLY not an NFL caliber player.

That is the #1 problem with college sports fans, they can't take off the homer glasses at the next level.

But he sleeps in the parking lot and sticks his finger in buttholes of opposing players!

Kalif Phillips got a better shot than Hood since Phillips can actually catch out of the backfield

Getting back on topic, I would personally rather keep Barner for the KR/PR ability. I think at this point the book seems to be largely written on CAP.

I wouldn't put serious money on either one making the team. September is a long ways away.

One day last season, or the season before (?), there were more NC State QBs starting than there were UNC players starting.

Even being an NC State fan, I wouldn't want the Panthers to load up on State players that weren't worthy of NFL roster spots. I am not hating on Hood because he is from UNC, he just simply isn't an NFL caliber player.

Similarly, guys like Reggie Bonnafon are unlikely to be anything more than practice squad or training camp bodies. Fans get too caught up in a lot of these late round picks and UDFAs. The overwhelming majority of them are not going to pan out.

Unlikely yes. But ok we just got excited signing a FA running back who went undrafted. You never know.
