Per a couple of sources, Larry got an official combine invite today.

Also, in the last week or so, Austin Duke accepted his 2nd senior showcase game. I don't have the details on that game though (if someone  would be kind enough to give us the details, and if it's televised?)

Great news!

Per Charlotte49ers.com, in addition to the Tropical Bowl on 1/17 (streamed online), Duke will also participate in the CGS (College Gridiron Showcase) 1/7 - 1/11. The GCS showcases top talent through practices and a controlled scrimmage but does not look to be televised or streamed from what I could find. Deserved recognition for both!

Austin Duke didn't do much yesterday in the Tropical Bowl. 1 Fair catch on a PR, 3 targets, 0 catches.  One of the plays I saw, the QB was running for his life and Duke had no chance to make the catch.

I thought I'd see an invite or two for Kalif? Anybody know if he's going to be in any of the games?

I'm not too surprised, he had quite a few injuries along the way.

I'm sure he'll get a tryout though. Some NFL team will work him out. He's too good not to get at least that.

Unfortunately, the NFL doesn't place much of a premium on RBs these days. Derrick Henry rushed for an Alabama single season record of 2,219 yards, scored 28 touchdowns, won the Heisman and a National Championship, was 6'3 247, yet could run a 4.5 sec 40, and got picked....

45th.

Pretty much says it all.

I think Kalif has a shot at a camp invite. After that, it's up to him. The downside of his running style (which reminds me of Marshawn Lynch, and I love watching) is that he is injury prone. To his credit, he plays though most of them. I wish him success and will be delighted if he makes a roster. The more Niners in the league, the better.

Larry got a shout out on ESPN from David Newton and the possibility of the Panthers drafting him. I don't know how to link it, but it's in the article on Kawaan Short.

i understand we've had some frustrating football games and could have been bowl eligible this year, but if you tell me ten years ago i would be reading this article, i may literally murder someones children (yes, plural) in order to try to make it happen.  perspective.  i hope this happens and i'm framing that jersey as long as it's not falcons or saints.
we have football

It's not. He may get a home town courtesy invite, and hopefully he impresses enough to get a shot. If not here, hopefully somewhere.

Not sure the Panthers will look to DT again but here is a nice video on Larry:

"...the first contender for Charlotte University..."

Love the way that name sounds but you'd think Panthers Insider would get the name right... Anyway, Love the moves Larry is making. He's proud to rep this school and is making noise at the Senior bowl while doing so. Only way to go is up for him!

Tolbert needs to be cut.

Gettleman loves him some D-Linemen, though.

With some folks in the know saying Larry could go late first, early second round... the prospect of the Panthers taking Fournette at #8 and Ogunjobi at #40 has me dancing in my mind.

Side note: what are the odds Goodell fucks up our name when he announces Larry's selection?

^Gettleman may be in hot seat if he doesn't address offensive line early in draft AND our offensive line is terrible again. Always chance addresses outside of draft. Cam will burn his seat.

He does but I think he is going DE or maybe even S at number 8. I think after that he is going BPA.


 It will be an interesting offseason but as much grief as he is catching for not addressing certain positions, Panthers lost 5 games by 3 or less. They didn't execute properly when needed and that is on coaches and players.

If Larry has his name announced when Goodell is still calling names, which only happens during the first round, I would be so ecstatic he could call him whatever he wants.

I thought Goodell called the first two rounds?

Either way, I wasn't talking about Ogunjobi's name. I was talking about the school's.

One of the scouts said he had worked his way up from late rounds to mid draft.  It's so awesome to see our helmet out there and hear the guys talking about us. I can't wait to buy a Larry jersey!
