  1. I hate when people make intelligent, well thought out statements that contradict my thought process. How bout you shut up.
  2. He is literally the only space eating 1 tech available in this draft and we desperately need someone to compete with Shy Tuttle (who is undersized) for the position.
  3. I would have taken Sweat at 39. The fact that he could be available at 65 is fantastic. If he slides all the way to 101 and we don't take him, shame on us.
  4. Back when I used to do cognitive assessment for the NFL Concussion Settlement, I used to hear all kinds of fun juicy tidbits from former players. Not typically draft related, but largely about players who were impressing coaches/trainers in offsite personal training sessions, or about players not so productive extracurricular activities. The thing is, people who have access to this information typically are not spreading it around on social media. Respect and trust is a two-way street.
  5. You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
  6. His cap hit is elevated because we have restructured him previously to utilize cap space and build our illustrious roster. We are currently doing the right thing. Need to eat those elevated cap hits while we are not in contention. I could see Moton being traded for draft capital next off-season, which would save the team about 5 million on the cap for 2025.
  7. Panthers DT Derrick Brown is signing a four-year, $96 million extension that includes $63.165 million guaranteed, per source. Deal negotiated by Brown’s agents Drew Rosenhaus, Jason Rosenhaus and Robert Bailey and Panthers execs Dan Morgan and Brandt Tillis. Drew Rosenhaus confirmed the deal.
  8. Right, not my study, and in no way does correlation = causation. I just know that the team this year has a higher number of unknown variables than is typical for most teams, which, while corollary data may suggest is a negative, I believe it creates room for optimism. Which was the entire point of my post that I feel was somewhat lost.

  10. There tends to be a strong correlation between roster retention and success in the NFL. There are many reasons for this correlation. Teams with above average players tend to hold on to those players, and consistency and familiarity go a long way towards improved performance. Most research done on roster retention/turnover look at the entire 53 man roster. Higher rates of roster retention are around 80%, while the lowest rates are around 40%. The Carolina Panthers are on their way to having one of the highest roster turnover rates in the past 5 years. Following the draft, where the Panthers have 6 picks in the top 5 rounds, it is expected that the Panthers may have an overall roster retention percentage in the 30's. On Offense, the Panthers are looking at possible new starters at 3 of 5 offensive line positions (LG, C, and RG), and 2 of 3 starting WRs. Possible additions at TE or RB in the draft may increase this turnover. This does not even account for an entirely new offensive scheme installed by a new HC and Offensive Coordinator. On Defense, the Panthers are looking at a new starters at 3 of 4 Linebacker positions, a new DE, a new FS, and at minimum one new CB starter. Again, these numbers are likely to increase following the draft. The biggest takeaway from this, IMO is that history is not on the Panthers side for a successful 2024 campaign. Bare minimum 9 out of 22 starting players will be different from the 2023 squad. However, when you win 2 games in the season, sitting back and expecting different results from the same process is lunacy. With every new player and scheme there is an inherent risk or gamble. We have rolled the dice an extremely large number of times. If by chance, these gambles pay off, we will have a chance to compete. However, there is an extremely high variability rate in our chance for success, higher than most teams in the NFL, which is, at a bare minimum, a cause for optimism.
  11. Sanders will not be on the roster next year. There is an out built into his contract after the second year. Chuba is also playing on the last year of his rookie deal. Either way, RB is going to be a need next year. We might as well bring in depth while it isn't a must instead of shopping hungry next year
