Panthers add a left tackle in Daniel Jeremiah’s newest mock

Panthers add a left tackle in Daniel Jeremiah’s newest mock

Photo by Corey Perrine/ They’ve got a quarterback. Now it’s time to build him a line. In his latest mock draft, NFL.com draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah says the Carolina Panthers will take Northwestern offensive tackle Rashawn Slater with the No. 8 pick in the 2021 draft. The move would come off the heels of Carolina acquiring quarterback Sam Darnold from the New York Jets on Tuesday. The price for Darnold was second, fourth and sixth round picks. The sixth round pick comes in this year’s draft while the remaining two come in 2022. Slater is a 6-foot-4, 304-pound...

The case for the Panthers drafting a quarterback with the No. 8 pick

The case for the Panthers drafting a quarterback with the No. 8 pick

Photo by Michael Wade/Icon Sportswire via Yes, still. As I’m sure most of you are already aware, the Carolina Panthers sent a sixth round pick in this year’s NFL Draft, along with second and fourth rounders next year, to the New York Jets for former No. 3 overall pick Sam Darnold. If you believe everything you hear on the internet, Darnold is somewhere between an absolute bust that no offensive guru could possibly save and a star in the making whose only flaw was playing for the Jets. Regardless of which outcome happens, the Panthers still have the No. 8 pick in...

Ten Things I Think About the Sam Darnold Trade

Ten Things I Think About the Sam Darnold Trade

Photo by Al Pereira/ After a day of reflection I have come up with some thoughts about the trade of Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers. I think a fresh start is best for all parties. Darnold will have a chance to put the failures in New York completely behind him. I don’t know how much the drama of a contract year or fan and media pressure would have affected him, but they won’t be factors now. He will now have a real chance to show he belongs in the NFL. His team isn’t perfect, but he will have a legitimate offense coordinator and quality weapons for the first...

Mocking with B-Dub 6.0: The first post-Darnold mock draft

Photo by John Korduner/Icon Sportswire via The Panthers traded a few picks for former Jets quarterback Sam Darnold. Now they can build around him and give him a real chance to succeed. The NFL Draft is a few months away, but that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate who we think (or hope) the Panthers will draft when it’s time to make their selections. I’ve decided to join in on the fun this year and — against my better judgment — do a series of mock drafts to hopefully foster discussion about the Panthers’ needs and how they should address them. For the time...

Podcast: Jets Trade Sam Darnold to Carolina

Photo by Al Pereira/ The Sam Darnold Era came to an official end yesterday. Three years after trading up for the quarterback, the Jets traded him to the Carolina Panthers for a sixth round pick this year and future second and fourth round picks. An era that seemed to have great promise ends as a failure. Darnold did not develop during his time with New York. For their part, the Jets did everything in their power to ensure Darnold would not develop. A change is likely best for all parties here. Darnold gets a fresh start in Carolina while the Jets will get to try again...

Colts’ trade for Carson Wentz validated after Jets-Panthers deal for Sam Darnold

It feels like ancient history that the Indianapolis Colts traded for Carson Wentz. And it feels like blasphemy that they caught as much criticism as they did for it.

The Scho Show: What the Sam Darnold trade means for the Patriots

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports Related: Jets trade quarterback Sam Darnold to the Panthers for three total draft picks Hope. The NFL draft is packaged hope. Manufactured hope. Commercialized hope. That hope from all 32 fanbases that with the right combination of picks, playoff glory is less than a year away. Maybe it is a new receiver, a shiny new cornerback. An athletic linebacker. Or a quarterback. Thanks to the New York Jets. Yes the New. York. Jets. The New England Patriots have a glimmer of hope on the quarterback front, brighter than it was just a few hours ago....
