Players Cut Who Panthers Should Sign?


I believe the Panthers made a great decision (1 I called for earlier) in claiming ex-Packers FS Micheal Greco (6-2 7/8, 224, 32 3/4 inch arms, 4.40-40, 22 bench reps, 41 1/2 inch vertical, 10-9 broad jump, 6.80 3-cone drill, and a 4.10 20 yard shuttle). Greco played QB for UCF until moving to FS as a senior, and is a great athelete. I feel Greco's best NFL future would be as a hybred combo OLB/SS, who can drop back as a 5th DB, and the speed to be a feared blitzer. DB Coach Meeks used something simular with Dante Wesley in a few games, and called it the "Joker" position, maybe he can convince new DC McDermott to ues it as well.

FS Quentin Scott (6-3 7/8, 224, 34 5/8 inch arms, 4.40-40, 13 bench reps, 35 inch vertical 10-1 broad jump 6.88 3-cone drill, and a 4.18 20 yard shuttle), was cut yesterday by the Raiders, and he's almost a carbon copy FS Michael Greco, except he played S and LB at Northern Iowa. Scott went undrafted in 2010, but nfldraftscout.com ranked him as the 10th best FS, and 201st player overall in the draft. Their scouting report points out that he's good in coverage, in spite of his height. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/historic/1693199

LB/S/TE/H-Back/WR/DE Jameson Konz (6-3 1/2, 234, 4.38-40, 46 inch vertical, 10-8 broad jump, 6.93 3-cone drill, 4.25 20 yard shuttle), I loved Konz in the 2010 draft, and the Seahawks drafted him in the 7th round, at #245. Konz played LB and S at Kent St. for his first 3 years, before moving to TE/H-Back as a senior, so what did the Seahawks do soon after drafting him, they moved him to WR. He was injured in training camp last summer, and spent the season on IR. He got his weight down to 227 in the offseason to help him play WR, then today, just a few days into camp, he was told they were moving him to DE. They must be either trying to make him fail, or trying to get him killed, playing him as a DE in the NFL at only 227 pounds. Konz hasn't been cut yet, but the writings on the wall, and he might be a good player for the Panthers to watch for on the waiver wire.

Unfortunately, I haven't seen any good CB talent cut, but here are 2 DT's that might be interesting pickups for the Panthers.

The Eagles cut DT Jeff Owens (6-1, 304, 32 3/4 inch arms, a Combine 4.96-40, a Pro Day 4.83-40, 1.69-10, 44 bench reps), their #243 pinck in 2010. Here is how his numbers compare to the Panthers #65 pick DT Terrell McClain's, 5 pounds heavier, 4/100ths faster 40 at the Combine, 1/100th slower 40 at his Pro Day, and 15 more bench reps. DC McDermott should know him well, so if he's not interested he probably has a good reason.

NT Chris Baker (6-2 1/4, 326, a Combine 5.02-40, a Pro Day 4.94-40, 1.65-10, 35 1/2 inch vertical) has been cut by the Dolphins (I hoped he would), it's speculated that he reported over weight. Baker was projected as a 2nd round pick in the 2009 draft, but like a lot of Hampton players he dropped like a rock, going undrafted. He has the size of a NT at 326 pounds, with top DT speed (his 1.65-10 would have placed him 2nd among the 2010 draft's DT's, by 1/100th of a second. He's mostly been on the Broncos and Dolphins Practice Squads for his first 2 years, so he may lack the motivation to live up to his workout numbers, but bring him into (maybe even sign him) training camp, work him out, and see what he's got.
