Carolina Panthers 2008 Draft Report

The Carolina Panthers played a disappointing season in 2007, although it was not the worst in the league. They managed to disrupt some power teams like the 49ers and Seahawks in the season finale. Will make some changes Roster help the team return to the playoffs? You can discern the chances of the Panthers in 2008, taking a careful look at the NFL draft. The team was looking for a big league player this year.

The team began the project by selecting running back Jonathan Stewart of Oregon and tackle Jeff Otah of Pittsburgh. The team also selected two choices in the 3rd round cornerback Charles Godfrey of Iowa and linebacker Dan Connor Penn State. For the final round, there were three players: linebacker Hilee Taylor of North Carolina University, the offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz Oregon and offensive guard Mackenzy Bernadeau of Bentley.

This seems to be the "last chance" for the management of the current administration and the Panthers for much of the team. 2007 was excusable because of the absence of leading players like Jake Delhomme quarter. The 2008 draft selections play an important role in determining the success of the team. First choice Jonathan Stewart has won praise for his skills and was named a multi-dimensional player with the size of the gift, speed and experience. The big question Stewart is their long-term sustainability, as it is prone to injury. While the team may have two first round choice? They had to negotiate # 1 choice next year to do it, but the crew managed to land face Jeff Otah. Otah was physically impressive, weighing more than 300 pounds and standing 6'6. While Otah is considered a raw player, it still has great potential.

Charles Godfrey was considered a player with great depth, as it brought a lot of speed and quickness from his position as Dan Conner gained even more acclaim for his aggressive style and excellent range. Hilee Taylor, Nick Hayden and Gary Barnidge also praised by experts in the NFL. In all, most fans describe the project in 2008 as a risk, but a risk that very calculated value as players and players with high impact and promising backup players.
