New First Round Mock Draft 10/14

Recommended Posts

The guys at Sideline Scouting have posted their new first round mock draft. Bare in mind, its still early and things will change, simply for entertainment value at this point.

What do you all think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on your team's pick.

No way in hell 5 DEs go in the top 8 and no way in hell the Panthers take a WR in the top 5. Just ain't gonna happen.

I also doubt Robert Quinn goes #5 overall after missing the entire season due to suspension.

No way Bruce Carter is available at #24. He will drop jaws at the Combine. He'll be the first LB taken.

Not saying he will or wont be taken in the top 5, but most draft places still have Quinn as a top 5-10 player on the draft boards.....so it's possible he goes as high as #2/3 or as low as 13th or so, I don't think he will fall much more then that though.

It's a HUGE risk to use the # 2 overall pick on a WR. Remember the trap Detroit fell into trying to fix their WR problems in the 1st round of the draft?

I'd guess we will take Robert Quinn, need a playmaker on the defensive line.

I'm hoping a big time DT comes into the top 3-5 picks as the season ends and the combine heats up. But if AJ Green is the BPA for us (and it is definitely a need), I'd be okay with it. In the past 10 years at the draft, of the WR's taken in the top 5 picks, only Charles Rogers and Peter Warrick have been flops. The other WR's taken in the top 5 have been: Braylon Edwards, Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, & Calvin Johnson. I would looooove to have an Andre Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald on our squad opposite Smitty. I feel like the WR busts are more in the latter part of the top 10 or in the teens. Does that mean that AJ Green is an Andre Johnson rather than a Charles Rogers or Troy Williamson? Nope, but glass half full versus half empty mentality is what it comes down to. We have a few needs that should be addressed with our pick. Peterson or Amukamara could lock down our CB position if necessary. If Marcell Dareus continues to blow up, he would be my preference, but I don't know enough about him to know if he translates into a 4-3 DT more than a 3-4 end. AJ Green looks like a highlight reel waiting to happen, so I wouldn't be mad with him one bit.

Dareus from Bama is more of a DT.

That is who I believe we would draft.

I would rather trade down, which is going to be valuable because their will be a rookie pay scale before these guys are signed. Both players and Owners want a rookie scale, so this is def going to happen.

Does this guy look like a DE, to you?

haha, not saying your wrong, but the last #2 overall pick WR drafted by the Lions was Calvin Johnson.....I would say it's worth the risk.

Some things to think about....

If we end up with a top 3 pick, is it really out of the realm of possibility we draft a QB? If we have a new coach/staff in here, they may want their own guy.

Also, I think drafting a top WR is a good move. This team does NOT develop WR's. Maybe if we get a new staff in here, they will, but drafting that high increases the likelihood that that player will be decent. Not sure we need projects like Lefell or Edwards, or Jarrett, etc.

What I would love, is for Clowny/Gettis/Thomas to step up the second half of the season and prove something. If this happens, and we still have a high round pick, we could trade down and get more picks and still get who we need in the 1st (a DT, seriously).

A new coach is much more likely to bring in a veteran QB that understands the offense he wants to run.

If we're bad at developing WR's (which I'm not sure about yet since we have a new receivers coach for the first time since the beginning of the franchise that helped develop Anquan Boldin) then why would we want to draft another one? Why not use the large amount of cap space we'll have next year (or whenever there is football again) to bring in a veteran WR? Drafting a WR high does not necessarily guarantee a better chance of success, it's very difficult to project how a WR will translate to the NFL.

I do like the idea of trading down from a high pick, but I think Robert Quinn is the real deal and might be too good to pass up, even after sitting for a year and we desperatley need a dynamic pass rusher to replace Peppers.

We've got to bolster the defensive line. We'll probably end up with a top three pick. I think the best option would be DT Marcell Dareus from Alabama, no doubt. We have a void in the middle that he can fill, pressure the QB and stuff the run. Wideouts take too long to develop. We should concentrate on developing the ones we have and pick up a solid vet, period. Address depth on both lines. Now, the QB situation..... hopefully that sorts its self out by the end of the season.
