There is still buzz about the Falcons taking a QB.  While it's possible, I really don't see it happening.  I honestly think it's to get Denver, Patriots or even Washington to jump up to #4.

I see Denver as a move up candidate as well.

I don't mind a WR at #8, but I don't think he's (Waddle) better than Chase or Smith.  And I'd be really concerned about him staying healthy.

I think he's going to be a solid player but I just wouldn't take him over the other guys I expect to be available.  Personally, I'd be shocked if we took him at #8 without at least looking into trading down first.

While this is technically true, my general belief is that you can find above average WR play in Rounds 2 and 3 (or later) than you can above average offensive line play.  WRs coming out of college these days are simply more prepare to contribute early on in their career than offensive linemen, with the average NFL offense incorporating more and more concepts that originated in the college ranks (e.g. spread field, RPOs, etc).  Can you find good linemen later on? Yes.  I just think it's less likely.

So I would very much prefer to take a stud offensive linemen at 8 and then try to find your 3rd WR (yes, I understand that with Robby Anderson and DJ Moore's contracts being up next year, we may need to view this player as a No. 2--I don't think we'd lose both) than vice versa.

Yes, I agree.  I suppose the context here is they want a game changer--a threat--a super talent--and not just a player to develop who could step into a key role.

And I am in the OT camp as well.  I think there are 4 good ones, but 1 is a RT who could possible play LT--Tevin Jenkins OKSt.

Little, Jenkins, Radunz, Leatherwood, Cosmi. These are all starting tackles that have a decent chance to be there at 39. Sure, I'd much prefer Slater or Sewell, but I won't bitch as long as a starting LT is found.

Waddle's comp is tyreke hill.  Who wouldn't draft tyreke hill at 8 if given the chance?

If Panthers want a weapon, my bet is the Panthers board looks like this:

1. Sewell

2. Pitts

3. Waddle

4. Chase

5, Slater

To be fair, I don't watch a ton of tape on these players, but Waddle's numbers dropped every year, even as Bama's offensive production went up. On the other hand Smith's production went up every year. I think I would prefer Smith or Chase over Waddle. Waddle reminds me a bit of that Clemson receiver that came out a while ago, he ended up just being a return specialist.

Just my observation.

I am pretty damn confident in saying that Waddle will not be as good as Tyreek Hill.

You mean they dropped last year when he only played 5 games due to an injury? Look at his stats from last year on a per game basis. He was on pace for 75/1670/12 before he got hurt.

Devonta had more catches this season than Waddle had in his career at Bama.  Devonta is a tad taller and like 10 pounds lighter than Waddle.  Virtually no difference size wise.

Waddle is also coming off injury.

Devonta is light years better than Waddle.

I hope you’re joking.  If not your clueless.

he had 800+ yards as a true freshman playing in 15 games.  And dropped to 500+ playing in 2 less games sharing the WR room with upperclassman like Jeudy, Ruggs, and Smith who all were/are 1st founders.

 

 

also

prior to his injury THIS year.

Smith had 483 yards and 4 TDS to Waddle’s 557 and 4 TD’s

Have other WR agents been leaking BS about Waddle?? Hes the real deal folks, a top ten LOCK. This years is heavy cream, in 2019 he would have gone 3rd. By real reports hes the type that plays hurt, real tough guy for the WR spot. No Chase, everyone would signing waddle as the top WR. Reports are he was the best form ALL the Bama WRs form 2019 til now.

    • In the last 60 days how many total hours do you figure you've spent on this website promoting Sam's cause?
    • ...Interesting article. It almost sounds like there is a high level plan that Tepper and the city share for that area. Obviously, who pays for what will be the big fight. https://www.wbtv.com/2021/07/22/records-show-charlotte-lacks-money-new-stadium/ ——————— A WBTV Investigation shows the Queen City’s capacity to contribute to stadium projects is much lower than what’s recently been agreed upon in other NFL cities. Financial records shared by city staffers during a Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority board meeting show that the capacity to take on debt for major stadium construction is somewhat limited by other projects the city has already financed. ———————— “I don’t feel that the capacity is there at the moment in the existing tax structure,” District 7 Councilman Ed Driggs told WBTV Councilman and financial institution veteran Ed Driggs told WBTV he has doubts about the cities pot of money to pay for the deal. “Particularly because we have a pipeline of capital projects that will probably soak up a lot of that of existing capacity,” Driggs said. In addition to future potential projects like Discovery Place and Blumenthal Performing Arts, the city is already committed to $174 million in debt in the Convention Center fund, including more than $100 million for recent convention center upgrades. ———————- Economist Andrew Zimbalist told WBTV that deals between franchise owners and cities that look beyond a specific dollar contribution have proven more fruitful for taxpayers. “Cities are finding it more and more difficult to justify the expenditures as the prices go up in urban areas,” Zimbalist said. “What we’ll do is we’ll give you the land for the stadium. Not only that, but we’ll give you some acres around it for parking lots and we’ll give you some more acres for commercial and residential development and then you can make your money off of those other things that will help pay back.”   That’s not to dissimilar from the plan currently unfolding between Charlotte and Tepper. The City has already reached an agreement with Tepper and a developer for new soccer fields, residential units and commercial enterprises at Eastland. The city is also still negotiating with Tepper around a mixed-use/entertainment district in the area near Bank of America Stadium and the Charlotte Pipe and Foundry property, which could be crucial to the development of a future stadium. Rezoning Pipe and Foundry and using a mixed-use/entertainment district to link it with the Gateway District, home of a future transit center for Amtrak could be crucial to plans moving forward. ———————- “More likely than not, at the end of the day, for the vast majority of these deals, they should not be looked upon as a promoter for the economy,” Zimbalist said. “They’re not going to raise overall employment. They’re not going to raise per capita income, and what you want to do as a city if you want to have a sports team, whether it’s MLS, NFL or NBA or whatever it might be, try to make a deal that is financially neutral.”
    • True that but even if you trade it for later capital, better to get a return on investment.
