I actually think this is an issue beyond the Panthers, and I think a big part of it is the shift in the way college offenses work meaning there are fewer NFL-level OL prospers in the draft. Maybe I'm wrong there, but it seems like a bigger problem and is widespread on many teams.

I don't think it's necessarily how college offenses work but how college offenses have impacted NFL offenses. More and more spread type formations but more and more pressure on your OL. There are just fewer blockers available even if all they're doing is chipping before releasing into their route.

NFL coaches have been blaming the college game for their shoddy prospect evaluation and player development since the beginning of the league. College coaches aren't paid to develop NFL talent. They're paid to build winning college football programs which just so happens to usually also produce NFL prospects.

Not quite bruh...wth... 

Horn ... you just just tell he'll be an impact player. 

Marshall... will be a big part of our offense in the future...

Tremble... see above

Christensen... see above. Motons first games were comparable. 

I'll stop there .... and by the end of year 3 ..this could very well end up being a top 1-3 draft in Panther history. That's 4 players with starter potential. Most teams are lucky to get two and a possible. And I didnt even mention Brown and Chubba. 

Agree. Not sure how an injured sixth rounder that was obviously being brought along slowly to begin with, tanks your draft class.

The NFL uses college football as an unaffiliated minor league system but bitches about the quality of the players produced by the unaffiliated minor league system. Imagine that.

2 and a possible sounds like a terrible spades hand.

I blame the NCAA. With the advent of the Spread O, Oline schemes are different than they used to be. Add in the fact that Coaches don't get enough time with individuals anymore. And you have fewer Linemen with NFL talent coming through like in the past.

 

You take the athlete, and hope you can coach him up. Which is what we are trying to do. However, we are just getting started, so we are a bit behind.

Everyone wants to blame the NCAA for not developing O-lineman but in reality its the same number of players coming into the league, they are just earlier in their development and teams should draft accordingly.  

Our problems this year should have been addressed last year or the year earlier.  Everyone wants to talk about us passing on Slater this year, but last year we had the choice of Wirfs, Wills, and Becton.

It is not college football's fault. College coaches are paid to field good college football teams, not develop talent for the NFL. NFL coaches are paid to field good NFL teams. If they can't translate the talent from the college game to the pro game, it's on them not college football.

Its a two way street.  College teams like Alabama and Clemson use the greater likelihood of getting to the NFL as a recruiting tool.
