Joe Gilliam Womens Jersey The exchange ¡ª one-sided as it was ¡ª went viral. McCaffrey showed impressive composure in completing the interview with the man screaming behind him. He later said he appreciated the man as one of his true fans.
Jordan Reed Womens Jersey McCaffreys all grown up now, and the Panthers took him with the eighth overall pick in the NFL draft on Thursday. He was yelled at again, and again it was supportive.
If McCaffreys eardrums arent blown out by close-range yelling, hell probably have a great experience in Carolina. Hes such a dynamic player that he can fit wherever the Panthers put him, and this is a really fun pick.
Theres no denying McDowells talent. Character concerns caused him to fall into the second round, and one team said their interview with him was the worst theyd ever had at the combine. His effort is inconsistent and his technique needs a lot of work, but if Pete Carroll can get him up to speed, hell be a great addition.
Baker is undersized, but it hasnt stopped him from dominating. Hes got the range to succeed as a free safety at the next level, and the versatility to bounce to nickel if needed. Being undersized at the college level is one thing, but there is a risk involved in his transition to the NFL.
