A good read about Gaydosh's chances at Panthers camp
by Andrew Bucholtz
[i][b]Yes, the level of NFL interest in Gaydosh has shot up rather dramatically. However, there are plenty of reasons to think he's not going to stick with the Panthers. For one thing, the team just spent their first two NFL draft picks on defensive tackles Star Lotulelei (14th overall) and Kawann Short (44th overall), and coach Ron Rivera is obviously very high on those guys; they should be long-term starters for the Panthers. The team also has three other DTs likely to be on the depth chart this fall in Colin Cole, Dwan Edwards and Nate Chandler. Gaydosh impressed in CIS with the Calgary Dinos, but despite the growing recognition of Canadian university football down south, he's still coming into Carolina as a huge underdog when compared to their other players at his position, and he'll also have to adapt to the four-down, small-field, run-focused nature of the NFL game after playing Canadian football for most of his life.
Moreover, there's the numbers game to keep in mind. NFL teams can now have 90 players in training camp, but they have to cut down to a 53-man active roster and an eight-man practice roster by the time the season starts. That means almost one in three players in camp will be cut, and the odds would seem likely that Gaydosh will be one of those players. When you consider he was one of the last players they picked up this offseason, that further increases his odds of survival. You don't need an Infinite Improbability Drive to create a scenario where he doesn't make it out of camp.[/b][/i]
If Gaydosh can overcome those kind of odds he certainly deserves it!
