  1. Didn't perform at combine because of hammy. Ran a 4.53 or so at pro day. rumored to of had some medical red flag which dropped him
  2. KB's strength is/was beating CBs off the line with strength + explosiveness and having a my ball mentality Both of those things are arguably very important for rookies to be good at for immediate success as a WR1. Both of those things are weaknesses to Funchess game right now. I do think Panthers are aware of this and are attempting to get him to learn to play big quickly but it will be tough. I could see a situation where he catches on late in the season.
  3. Tolbert is the FB, and I will be surprised if they cut him.Tolbert is a Rivera favorite and is pretty versatile. If there is someone behind him though that can do his job I could see us getting something for him in a trade.I just don't see a 30 year old FB with a 1 year 2.5 mill contract having any trade value.
  4. Tolbert is the FB, and I will be surprised if they cut him. Yep, staff seems to love him so it would be a surprise but would any cut really be a surprise after Smitty? seemingly a lot of reasons stacking up 1) Tolbert turns 30 in November (and broke his leg last year) 2) He is a FA after this year and he doesn't seem like a probable resign unless he settles for a big pay cut 3) a cut would save a lot of cap money this year ~ 2.5 mill I think 4) He has one of the last Hurney's contracts. This was not gman's guy originally.. 5) Tolbert hasn't been effective at actually blocking IMO and we haven't been very good in the red zone of late with him 6) Is Lee Ward the next Brad Hoover? might be good to give him PT if Tolbert isn't the FB of the future
  5. I think you have to consider Tolbert as a surprise cut with Ward's play. Maybe Broeckel too I also think Trusnik is a potential cut as Wegher has been playing so well on STs. We could go with just 5 LBs which would make space for Wegher.
  6. Bloom seems split on Funchess too. He had him in his "undecided" range predraft. Post draft he moved him up to 19th explaining that Carolina doesn't have room for multiple FF WR2s. Short term I agree with that. Long term, I think Funchess vertical role in a potentially budding Cam pass offense is somewhat intriguing. The overwhelming consensus of the FF draftniks seems to be a lot of negativity. In summary: Some tape disagreement Measurables disagreement with the combine vs proday difference of his 40 time Some disagreement on the intangibles Very little pre draft buzz vs lots of draft day buzz with the trade up A very young player Maybe some disagreement on the potential of this offense All in all a very polarizing dynasty add that could be had in the 15-25 range
  7. Yes, seems to be lots of disagreement on his playing speed. I think his 40 time threw people off. The tape shows he can get separation vertically and also in short areas. A Josh Norris quote on him... Funchess can be a lethal vertical receiver, thanks to his downfield speed and potential catch radius. He might not be quite as consistent Benjamin on 50/50 balls, however, Funchess is better in the short to intermediate areas and after the catch. He doesn't play fast. He wins with physicality, solid routes and good change of direction.Well there are some people that think the tape shows that he does create vertical separation with his speed (ie Josh Norris, Gettleman)
  8. Yeah Gettleman went through the process in his presser. He said his NFL scouts told him there were 6 teams ahead of them who had needs at WR and they felt Funchess was a first rounder soo they made the move. That and rumors were cleveland was taking Funchess at 43 I think one big misconception about the NFL is everyone is too honest. Agents/media folks like Schefter are in cahoots with teams and will exchange favors to help eachother. This is one reason why you see UDFAs signed basically before the draft even ends, teams and agents are trading favors during the draft. If there were 6 teams attempting to move into that spot the Panthers likely had very good information on where Funchess was going.
  9. What did he say? Something about how Arians was the only coach he would play for. He also talked oddly about having to start. I am likely making something out of nothing but it rubbed me the wrong way.
  10. The value just screamed bad for OT this year. With Lael dropping everyone jumped a spot. Scherff was a reach. Flowers was a reach. Peat was a reach. Ogbuehi won't play this year and went 21st. I actually could see all OTs being misses relative to where they went. Expecially Scherff and Flowers. Humphries was the one guy that made sense but seeing his post draft comments I'm glad we missed on him.

  12. Panthers sign UDFA Brandon Wegher A longshot but I like him. A bigger Danny Woodhead?
  13. Lots of criticism for Gettleman right now similar to this. I think some are missing that Panthers had 9 picks and a roster good enough they could not fit 9 rookies. No doubt they overpayed to move up, but Cleveland was rumored to be selecting Funchess at 43 and traded out when he went off the board. Losing a 3rd round pick is somewhat mitigated because they could throw in extra picks in a later trade to move up to get who they wanted in that range - which they did at the top of the 4th with the Daryl Williams selection. If you look at Gettleman's comments I think they were going for a specific scheme fit - a big catch radius that can create vertical separation. Considering the personnel with Olsen Benjamin Cam it makes sense. Gettleman is big on being able to help early on and theoretically Funchess could do that in his vertical role.
