JK Mock Draft 1.0

Here is my too early 2013 NFL Mock Draft 1.0:

[b]1st Round: [/b][b]DE | Damontre Moore | Texas A&M[/b]
[center][b][img]http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images_root/slides/photos/002/391/913/129662238_crop_650x440.jpg?1341699318[/img][/b][/center]
[left]Panthers have generated little pass rush over the past couple of seasons. Since Peppers left, we haven't had a true pass rusher that we could count on to disrupt the QB. I know many will dislike this pick because of the money tied up with Charles Johnson and drafting Alexander last year but Moore should be better than both. Very explosive player off the line and when attacking the ball carrier. He is no slouch in the run game either. He is also very versatile player lining up at DE, OLB, and even DT on passing situations.[/left]

[left][b]2nd Round: [/b][b]S | Matt Elam | Florida[/b][/left]
[center][b][img]http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images_root/slides/photos/002/684/075/hi-res-6647462_crop_650.jpg?1350535341[/img][/b][/center]
[left]Most would consider strong safety his true position but I can see him succeeding at either spot. He always seems to be around the ball and is very good in the run game. He has great instincts that are very evident as he comes up with crucial play after crucial play. Just a well rounded safety that can tackle and cover space in the secondary.[/left]

[left][b]4th Round: WR | Conner Vernon | Duke[/b][/left]
[b]5th Round: OT | Terron Armstead | Arkansas Pine-Bluff[/b]
[b]6th Round: OLB | Kenny Tate | Maryland[/b]

This draft should be filled with nothing but OLs and DLs

A little high for Moore. Also don't want any WRs past the 2nd. That's just settling for more mediocrity. Would love Kenny Tate but i'm sure he'll be given a medical redshirt.

Damontre is my sleeper pick and has been balling the last 2 years.this year he has taken his game to another level and will probably rise up the draft board i can see him going in the top 15 picks.

I agree. I think many people say this would be a high pick for Moore but if you watch him play, there's no doubt he'll rise like you say. Just has to continue to play like he has and soon he'll be on everyone's radar.

I personally don't think WR is that high of a need but if someone is there in the mid-late rounds, don't see why we wouldn't take one. Vernon just produces and I think if he's there in the fourth, he'd be a good value.

But does that mean any pick past the 2nd round is destined for mediocrity?

And what do you mean by Tate medical redshirt? He is playing this year, right?

Can you tell me why you don't think WR is a high need?

I just don't think it's an high immediate need. I think the QB makes the WR more often than the WR making the QB. I think Smitty still has a good 2 years left. Plus LaFell, Gettis, and Murphy all are solid enough.

It'd be nice to get a WR for the future but I don't think it's a pressing as other needs that need improvement right now. Our passing offense isn't a major problem.

Damontre moore is a beast....I'd love to have him if we could trade down, we really need to build the lines, that's how well win games. Although the secondary needs a talent infusion as well

Moore is damn quick off the snap which allows him to excel with not only outside rushes but w/ stunt moves

He'd be a great addition

I agree with what you're saying. The problem is we have enough of WRs like Vernon in Gettis, Adams, and Pilares. We should look for an upgrade to Smitty, and/or LaFell. So unless we have scouts that will find the next Victor Cruz I rather sign a FA or draft one in rounds 1-2.

You are correct on Kenny Tate. I knew he injured his knee at the beginning of the season and thought he was out for the year. But he has resumed play. So I think Tate is a great pickup.

I understand that we will eventually need a #1 to take over for Smitty but why not let those guys develop as we have other pressing needs that will need to be addressed. I just don't see a WR being a top 2 need so I can afford to wait.

But I guess what you are saying is, draft a WR in rounds 1 or 2 or not at all. I guess I see what you are saying with that thinking.

guys can still develop with talent brought in thru the draft, and how long do you give guys time to develop?Smitty is not getting younger, and at the time is not playing the best ball right now. i see WR as a top 3 need and this team really needs to invest a top 2 round pick in 1 because it is some really talented guys declaring.

I'm not even sure he's last until the 4th like I have him as he might be that diamond in the rough type of prospect. Someone wiil fall in love with him. There's a lot to like.

What is there not to like about Moore or Elam? Moore has been the best DE not named Clowney this year. And Elam for a second rounder isn't much of a drop off from McDonald. He flies everywhere on the field.

But I am sure you aren't watching enough CFB to know.

I'm watching CFB right now, but I don't know what that has to do with anything.

Because how could you evaluate Moore and Elam without getting a chance to watch them play.

What are your critiques of them? You seem pretty adamant that you don't like them, which I don't mind. I just want to know what you see in them or don't see in them.

I don't seem "adamant" about anything as the season isn't even at the half way point and we don't know what options will be available or what our needs will be since we now have more questions than answers with Hurney's dismissal.

However, I fall into the category you explained in your summary about Moore. With the DE's we have I don't think it's a need unless he's a clear cut BPA. I can see see Hardy coming back, but at this point Alexander has been better AND we're getting good pressure this season.

I'm a big believer in building from the inside out, starting at the LOS, but IMO we need DT far more than DE.

The safety may be able to play FS, but I'm tired of drafting guys to switch positions. I want an experienced FS who has the speed/range, ball skills, cvg ability and brains to excel at FS in a passing league.

I think WR is a bigger need than we can adequately address in the 4th, this I'd rather look at another position, such as RG. However, I like the guy you have slated. I just think he's be too little, too late at that point.

The fact that you are rating mocks in October is pretty pitiful. I'm sorry
