Linebackers


Recommended Posts

I know we have Perryman slated to start at the MIKE most likely, but does anyone think Shaq adding weight means more reps inside? I guess added weight is a plus either way if your speed and conditioning aren't negatively affected though.

Also Christian Miller is be projected as a LB- he was taking snaps as a SAM (at least I think I heard that in an interview).

We'll see. I was surprised we didn't draft a LB at some point. But without going back and looking at the complete draft order I can't say where or of I would've taken a LB over the pick that we actually made. If we're somewhat deemphasizing the position I'm definitely okay with that. We've historically way over-prioritized IMO. I would've just preferred to see some effort made to potentially backfill Shaq's spot to set ourselves up to part with that contract.

Is Reddick expected to line up as a LB or is he on the line?

I’m expecting rushing the passer on the line mixed in with some coverage stunts in blitz packages

Yeah- I Think Reddick will usually be a stand up OLB/Edge Rusher in odd fronts. That's his niche. If he's in with the 4-3 Base packages he'll be blitzing from the SAM.

We need linebackers badly. I wanted Jarrad Davis. He landed to the Jets really quick for a cheap contract. I wanted Parsons, Owusu, Bolton, Surratt or Cox. We passed up on every single one of them. Hell, Moses was an udfa. Rhule is chicken crap.

If you are in love with wasting 1st round picks on off-ball LBs maybe you should change fanbases. The WFT still likes reaching for LBs in the first round. I'm sure you would fit in around there.

Lets face it folks:

Kuechly, Morgan, Mills, Witherspoon, Davis, Beason---

Ya think we might be a bit spoiled?

 

Are you actually asking the Huddle to be honest in their player evaluations? Got your bullet proof vest on? lol

Yes we have been spoiled, but you don't need great LBs to be successful. You need guys that are willing to tackle and one of them needs to be able to cover. If we had better safeties Chinn could fill the coverage LB role.

We definitely don't need LBs that are being compensated like they play LT.

If you look at start of 2020 compared to right now, I believe LB flipped form being the 2020 best to 2021 worst. It also depends on where Chinn is playing each given snap. Honestly its a good thing with the flip, it shows the panthers efforts to improve D as a whole(they have) and LB is one of the least valued groups. 

LB, along with OL and QB should be the focused spots to improve during the next off-season.

Yeah we def kept the good and cut loose the bad. Hopefully next year we will try to find a few more upgrades. All in all its night and day compared to last year.
