Colts Fan Here(Panthers Mock Draft)

I recently entered a draft game, where you pose as a team's GM and since my beloved Colts were gone I chose to GM the Panthers, you start out with all your picks despite real life trades(I still have the Panthers #1 pick)

So I figured I would come here, do a mock draft on the first four rounds, see what you guys think of it and discuss your needs...

1st Round- WR Golden Tate Notre Dame-

Just from reading your forum, I can see you guys need another wideout to backup Steve Smith, Tate has enough potential to be a number one receiver but would compliment Smith very well in your offense

2nd Round- DT Brian Price UCLA or Terrence Cody Bama-

Pretty much whoever is available here, you guys need a big guy up the middle to run stop and both these guys are exactly that.

(In the actual game, I traded this pick for McNabb lol)

3rd Round- QB Tony Pike Cincinatti-

Just from watching highlights all year, I can tell you guys need to get you QB situation cleaned up, idk if you guys are going to resign Matt Moore or stick with Delhomme, but I think Pike would be a good pick either way. He is a potential starter who might kick Jake into gear for a year or two, then slide into the starting position.

4th Round- OT Selvish Capers West Virginia-

This is kind of a hit or miss kind of pick...He might be able to step in and help with pass protection for your young QB, or he might be a backup his whole career, but he has the potential and is worth a shot...

Read his first sentence……

If you were able to draft Tate and Price then it would be a steal. I dont like Pike in the third though.

Your 1st 2 picks are outstanding. I have been talking both of them up for months. I think Pike has bust written all over him. I would much rather have LeFevour but I doubt we draft a QB that early unless Moore is not retained.

I doubt we would ever draft a OT that early (maybe a 5th most likely at the earliest 6th). I would go with another WR because Tate is more of a slot guy with Smith here we still need a possession receiver. Either a guy like J. Williams outta of Tulane or Riley Cooper.

I kinda slacked on looking at QBs in the third, because I traded for McNabb but I do like Pike

So you like Price more than Cody?

I would love to get Dez Bryant, but I dont think he will be on the board...I will probably take a good look at the SC guy too, but I would really like to get a receiver in the first round and I think Tate has all the skills...Plus I dont like what I would get in the first round at DT.

I actually like Lefevour and Sneed as well, like I said, I didn't look too far into it QBs...I probably won't be drafting one in the game.

What are your guys other needs on defense? I have two third rounders now, so I might look into a few OLBs, what do you think of Eric Norwood?

Wouldn't mind Norwood but I would look at AJ Edds. He is a perfect fit as a cover 2 SLB as he excels in Coverage while still playing the run well. Diggs is someone who is upgradeable and I think Edds is a better athlete.

I also would look at Darly Washington if you could get him in the 3rd (very unlikely but for us unless TD bolts I don't think the value is there for us in the 2nd). Could also see us looking for a CB late. I haven't looked into any so I can't help you there but its a mild need.

FS is set but depth at SS couldn't hurt, our D looked terrible when Harris was out. I like Aaron Webster outta Cincinnati. Great against the run and is better in coverage then Harris. He is projected in the late rounds.

Also if Brandon Graham was there in the 2nd pick him. He would be a beast in our D with Meeks working with him. Then pick up Geno Atkins in the 4th, would be a perfect UT.

If we actually had a 1st round and a 2nd round, I'd go with Tate and Price. I'd draft Brandon Ghee, CB from Wake Forest in the 3rd over Pike, or Dan LeFevour QB from Central Michigan.

If neither were available, Willie Young DE from N.C. State, best DE available in the 3rd.

Also Austen Lane DE has the potential to be one of the best DE in this draft if a good dline/strength coach gets a hold of him.
