Hello guys im an avid reader and big time Panther fan since it all started. I must say I have suffered tremendously due to the performance of this team thus far. I feel like our downfall this year will be our lack of depth & talent from top to bottom on this team. I will give some facts to my opinion which I think hits home with my point. I will go on record and say that this 2012 class will be one of the best that Hurney has had up to date from top to bottom I think there is lots of potential there and the possibility of getting five starters, example: Keek,Amini, Nortman, Norman, and Alexander however they are still developing and still raw. I present to you the facts that I have found regarding the recent drafts that have crippled the talent pool on this team.
2009 (Only 2 players remain, who arent even starters) Martin & Munnerlyn. This is out of 7 guys that were drafted.
2010 ( Only 5 players remain, 2 are starters the rest dont contribute currently) Lafell,Hardy,Clausen, Edwards & Gettis. I would argue that out of this class we may have gotten only 1 starter...which is Lafell and the jury is still out on him so far things are promising. To me Hardy is just a guy...more rotational than a starter. I wont even comment on the others since we know there impact has been minimal or none at this point.
2011 ( Only 4 players remain, only 1 is a starter) Newton, Hogan, Pilares, & Fua. This is out of 8 guys drafted. I will give marty for getting our franchise QB. However other then Cam in this draft...do you see any legit starters or even solid back ups?.
My question to you readers, please be honest & not bias. Out of all these guys drafted in the last 3 years which of them would be starters for 80-85% of the NFL?. My Only guy would be Cam and maybe Lafell, this is out of 3 draft classes. This to me is the main reason why we are a bad team and will continue until it changes.
