What a day!



I dozed off and woke up to find ourselves with Jimmy Clausen in the bag at #48 (at # 48!!!!!!!!!!) and on the clock in the round. Minutes later we added Brandon Lafell. There is only one thing I have to say to that:

I love the Panthers organization and today I am so proud (more than ever) of being a Panthers fan.

Some of may have seen me cheerleading for Clausen (no homo) and yes, maybe I went overboard when I was pushing for us to jump into the first round or to the top of the second round.

But guys seriously - we don't look a gift Jimmy Clausen in the mouth. I don't want to tempt fate here by saying too much about him; I'll leave that to the likes of Jaxon, James and Neil who will surely have plenty to say about the picks.

Lafell seemed like the ideal big body to add - I think Decker would have been considered too but it was probably very close. Good solid pick that I think we should do well with.

The way I see the Edwards pick is like this. We have acutally picked him in the 2011 draft but he gets to play for us a year early. I think this is an above average deal, especially considering that he could have gone off the board very soon.
