The Panthers surprisingly went offense in the second round of the draft and even more surprisingly whiffed on two receivers with starter talent in Alshon Jeffrey and Stephen Hill. Hurney and Rivera’s decision to draft Amini Silitolu in the second round suggests that they are confident with their current talent at receiver. Obviously drafting Hill or Jeffrey would have been a sexy pick that would excite the fan base. However, I am going to have to agree with Hurney and Rivera in that fact that there is no shortage of talent at wide receiver on the 2012 Carolina Panthers. Last season, Legedu Naanee and Brandon LaFell split time at the number two spot and combined for an impressive 80 receptions for 1,080 yards. Your passing game has to be doing well if you're number two receiver has 80 receptions and over 1,000 yards, right? So what is the big deal if your second receiver is a combination of two? Or three?

Last week, Alex Smith caused some controversy when it seemed to most sports reporters that he was taking a shot at Cam Newton. Once it got out what Smith said, Carolina Panther fans started defending Cam as well and the whole thing got blown out of proportion really quickly. Now for those who don’t know what Alex
