I’m just saying there’s gonna be a competition between those lower tier guys and it wouldn’t surprise me if he ended up on the practice squad or not getting much playing time. Not sure if he has any special teams ability. 

true. i'm not sure about the special teams stuff, but i'm sure he's got the wheels to be a good gunner. it may take time for him to be a starter, but in a year or two i can see it. this year it would probably be situational stuff he gets brought in on, but he would be able to hang with some of the better WRs in the league when he does.

the problem is, how many of those guys on the roster fit the aggressive man scheme it looks liker we're going to be heavily moving towards? more likely to see a lot of those other 'maybe' type players not on the team than taylor on the practice squad.

With 2 or even 3 safeties, they are going to want aggressive press man qbs.  They know what they are doing.  Very excited about Horn, Nixon, and now this guy's upside.  He is not there yet, but we have Melvin and Bouye to hold down the fort.  I still think we need a LB--on D and an IOL on offense.

Yeah that’s why I figured a practice squad spot isn’t necessarily bad for him. He can be called up for spot duty if we have injuries. If he has special teams ability that will help him get a jersey on game days. Nobody should expect this guy to be a major contributor this year tho.

I actually like the player just fine but there were several options on the board that I liked better. This feels like we are trying to show everyone how smart we are and that can get you in trouble.

Yes, that's it! Because the pros liked other guys than you, they are showing how smart they are! 

Wow

practice squad would be dangerous, though. could see him getting snagged by another team. Would rather have one of the other guys picked off.

I seriously doubt he would get picked by another team.

Good Choice---tall, fairly quick, aggressive corner who is a good athlete. My only problem with this guy is he probably can't realistically be expected to line up at Offensive Guard or Tackle.

Did anyone watch Taylor the week of Senior Bowl? We’re not putting him on the practice squad. Don’t be surprised if we start him outside and move DJax to the slot.

Panthers selected Washington CB Keith Taylor with the No. 166 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. 

Taylor (6'2/198) started for Huskies his final two years on campus. He didn't accrue any notable accolades and broke up only six passes, none of which were interceptions. Taylor was at his best on film when allowed to sit in shallow zones and drive back toward the ball. Taylor may have an explosive, yet inconsistent trigger on these assignments, but his tackling and demeanor are admirable. Taylor would be best in a zone-heavy scheme, either outside or in the slot, and may have a future at safety if things do not work out at cornerback.

This:  {" Taylor would be best in a zone-heavy scheme, either outside or in the slot, and may have a future at safety if things do not work out at cornerback."}

    • Toxicity that is the huddle fat shaming a lady….   but I approve 
    • Here's the overview of opponents' performance in converting 3rd & 4th downs.  (Note: The "made" attempts at right include any attempts where 1st downs were granted because of CAR penalties.  The "failed" numbers at the right include several 3rd / 4th attempts nullified by opponents' penalties. So the numbers on the right don't match the official game book stats where the penalties are ruled no play.)   And here is the running total for Weeks 1 & 2: Some observations: 1) Panthers are doing a great job in keeping defenses of 3rd/4th and long.  Basically 60% of all conversion attempts are in the 3rd & long category (I'll have exact yard averages per game later... the Saints had a number of WAY long attempts well beyond 3rd & long).  By contrast, only 40% of Panthers 3rd down attempts so far have been 3rd & long.  So well done! 2) I love that we're not just stopping 3rd & longs, but also stuffing opponents in 2/3 of all their short yardage attempts.  (By contrast Panthers are making close to 50% of their short 3rd down attempts).  And allowing 0 conversions on middle distance attempts.  So very nice! 3) We may worry about Panthers' Defense having let up in the 2nd half of games (especially versus the Jets), but it hasn't shown up in the 3rd down conversion stats.  Panthers are equally successful in stopping conversions in both halves, for the most part.
    • This here is the truth.  When we win consistently, playoff contender yearly, the media will rank us higher consistently and have more respect.
