Matt Rhule on Jaycee Horn - Why he is the best fit

Huddle logic.

Panthers getting torched need a #1 CB.

 

Panthers pick best CB with highest ceiling and intangibles that can't be taught (wingspan, height, length)

Huddle:

RhUlE GoNnA Be OuT oF ThE LeAgUe In 3 YeArS!

 

 

 

lol Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh.

I mean we just seen a franchise QB get ruined because of no LT and blocking and yet that is never solved.  I'm OK passing on Fields, but why trade for a QB when he's going to have no blocking?   The expectations of Horn to be worth it means he's going to have to be a shutdown all-pro at I think.    At the very least trade with the Bears and possibly get even more than Gettleman just got from them.

Well, you generally expect a top 10 player to be a dominant college player. Horn wasn’t. 

not just be a good athlete who you think you can groom into a great football player.

So...we couldn't get a trade done.

I figured as much when we used up all the clock, but if he was our top prospecr on the board, it worked out bc if we hadn't taken him, I think the Broncos would have.

Don't think it was Tepper.

 

It's unfortunate Matt Rhule's time in Carolina will be remembered for how gutless he was when it came to filling the most important position in sports. I think he has one more year until the paper's start coming for Tepper as the losing seasons pile up, after which we'll see some new faces and hit reset yet again.

Oh lord I read that as a "Season" not Reason. 

Speaking of which, guessing that fifth year option on Darnold gets picked up shortly.

Yes it does. 

No. It absolutely does not and if you think it does then you are ignorant about how this process works. They have a board of players they think are talented and they have a set of needs. Falcons drafting a TE at #4 did not translate us taking a CB at #8 that wont even be covering the TE they took at #4 lol

Tepper didn’t want fields because of that vegan diet 

Yep.  He expects you to eat your steak with ketchup like a real man.

Reports say they had offers but Fitterer didn't like them as much as he liked Horn.

All depends on Darnold. Front office thinks he’s better than Fields apparently. We shall see…

They also thought Teddy was the answer.

I think what's gotten most huddlers upset is not necessarily picking Horn but picking Horn over Fields and Slater who were still available. CB is also a big need for the panthers for many years that has gone neglected, we've thrown so many late round picks at CB with out success. I guess Fitterer and Rhule feel that the OL depth is much better in rounds 2-4, I don't believe Seattle has ever drafted an O-linemen. This Horn pick does tell me that Rhule favors athleticism in his players, ie. Brown, Chinn, Gross-matos.

This can only happen if Fields winds up not being a franchise QB. If he's a franchise QB (which there's a pretty damn solid chance of) then even if Horn becomes the best CB in the league it would've been dumb to pass up Fields. 

No it also depends on Darnold. If Darnold is a legit QB then it's irrelevant what Fields does

Don't worry, Mr. Rhule will sure coach him up, just like he's going to do with Sam.

Yikes.
