2 Fantastic Workout Performers Cut, Would You Sign them?


2 very interesting young players have been cut, they had fantastic workout numbers, so should the Panthers sign, and develop them?

LB/S 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), was the Seahawks #245 pick in the 2010 draft, as a TE, but spent his rookie season on IR. He played his first 3 years at LB and S for Kent St., before being moved to TE as a senior (21 catches). When he arrived at camp last summer the Seahawks moved him to WR, so he dropped his weight down to 227 this offseason, then 3 days into camp was moved to DE (at 227 pounds?). I believe his best NFL position is at WLB, or as a hybred combo OLB/SS, like the "Joker" position Panthers secondary coach Meeks used with CB Dante Wesley, but needs to settle into 1 position, and not be counced around. His numbers are simular to recent signee FS Michael Greco, only much better.

OLB Keith Darbut (6-4 1/8, 229, 10 1/4 inch hands, 32 inch arms, 4.38-40, a record 1.42-10, 26 bench reps, 38 inch vertical, 10-6 broad jump7.28 3-cone drill, 4.45 20 yard shuttle) is an UDFA from Division III Baldwin-Wallace College, where he had 48 tackles, 15 TFL's, 10 1/2 sacks, and 11 QB hurries in 2010, while playing DE. He's a developmental prospect who might need 2 or 3 years to fully adjust to the NFL, but then he could become an outstanding OLB with his height and speed. Until then he's probably a Practice Squad player, or an end of the bench player with the size and speed to be a special teams standout.
