Gettleman: McCaffrey, Fournette both fit Panthers

Gettleman: McCaffrey, Fournette both fit Panthers

While this is one of many measures used to evaluate the prospects leading up to the draft, the low scores from Fournette and Cook don't cancel out their years of dominance on the field at the highest levels of college football.

"Siting at eight, I hope I never have to be in this position again", Gettleman said Friday during a predraft media availability at Bank of America Stadium.

Gettleman's discussion of the top running backs in next week's draft (April 27-29 in Philadelphia) will fuel the thought that the Panthers will target a ball carrier with their top selection.

With the 2017 NFL Draft less than a week away, most teams probably have a pretty good idea of who they want to pick.

Asked if McCaffrey is among the "half dozen" three-down backs he said he sees in this draft, Gettleman replied: "He can run it". But you have to run the ball to win in this league.

McCaffrey had an impressive combine workout which has made teams really take notice of him, including Dave Gettleman.

His remarks come after Pyongyang carried out a missile launch on Sunday that the United States said was a failure. The Trump administration is hoping that China will help rein in North Korea in exchange for other considerations.

Gettleman said Friday at a pre-draft press conference that he's very excited that the Panthers have four picks in the top 98 of the draft.

Through their scouting process the team disproved the popular (and false) myth that McCaffrey can't be an every-down back in the NFL. The Panthers have taken care of their pass rush with re-signing Kawann Short, and bringing back Julius Peppers.

"The last two years he's rushed the ball for 650 and he's caught another 90 balls", he said. However, Gettleman considers this class an equal if not superior match to last year's.

Facebook announces its AR Camera Effects Platform
Zuckerberg said the company is making the "first mainstream augmented reality platform out of the camera", called "Act 2". However, he also has predicted that the augmented-reality platform will soon be incorporated into eyeglasses as well.

"I can't just say, 'Oh, we got to have the best prune-eater in America, '" Gettleman said. McGinn also wrote that No. 3 back Christian McCaffrey scored a 21, Tennessee's Alvin Kamara a 24 and Oklahoma's Joe Mixon a 12. The biggest question for the Panthers is how does Christian McCaffrey's versatility compare to Fournette's raw atheltic power. However, why does the defending champion get to have all the good players?
