CBS Mock Draft

Way, way, way too early, but someone has put one together.

2. Carolina Panthers

Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU : In NFL history there has never been a cornerback selected this high. Several have been chosen third overall -- most recently in 1997, when the Seahawks took Ohio State's Shawn Springs. Peterson comes in as highly touted as any cornerback since Springs. With the NFL becoming more and more reliant on the passing game, a cornerback who can shut down half of the field like Peterson is more valuable than ever.

Seriously seriously doubt that Peterson and Prince Amukamara go #2 and #3.

I think Richard Marshall will be one of the most stubborn FAs to sign so drafting a CB makes sense.

Still though we need some D-lineman bad. The only complete, talented D-lineman we have is Charles Johnson with Hardy being a possible one as well.

I want to address QB but passing on either Peterson or Green would be hard. If we have a coach that is drafting based on BPA then you take Peterson. If we have a coach drafting based on need you take Green. If we have the #1 pick...you take Luck. This is how I see our big board based on a mix of BPA and need:

#1 - Luck

#2 - Peterson

#3 - Green

#4 - Locker

#5 - Dareus (even though I will HATE this pick and would rather trade out)

#6 - Ingram (take BPA and don't worry about signing Deangelo to another contract)

#7 - Amukamara

#8 - Quinn (again...hate the pick b/c I think he's overrated after not playing in 2010)

#9 - Julio Jones

#10 -Ryan Mallett

The good thing for us is that I don't think there is a chance in hell that we are drafting any lower than #5. So, depending on what teams are valuing in the draft we could have a shot at Peterson who would be a steal at #5.

The "value board" could change real quick if Matt Moore starts sucking again (like I think he will). It could shoot Mallett into the top 5 with Luck, Peterson, Green, and Locker.

DaQuan Bowers with a top 2 pick?? I hope you are being sarcastic. He's a top 25 player but not a top 10 or top 5 player at 6'4'' 280. DEs his size are a dime a dozen in the first round...

Quinn, Clayborn, Heyward, Bailey...

Any of those guys are probably going to end up being just as good as Bowers. IMO to drat a DE in the top 5 they better be 6'6'' and upwards of 290 coming out and be freak athletes (Peppers and Williams). If you hit on a guy like Tuck, Osi, or Freeney somewhere else in the draft then count your blessings but there is no way I take a risk on a guy who is solely a pass rusher in the top 5 picks. That is one reason I don't like Quinn as much as a lot of people. You could get a Lamarr Woodley later in the draft and not risk taking a Vernon Gholston in the top 5...

Nice post I pretty much agree with this 100% except for the Ingram pick. I would hate to pick Ingram unless I knew we were going to spend the DWill contract money on someone like Vincent Jackson or Richard Seymour.

Bowers is a great athlete, has the numbers this year to match, and he also plays one of the most important positions on defense in a passing league. Considering all those things, I really don't see how being 6'4, 280 is somehow too small to be worth a top pick especially if youre potentially an elite pass rusher, and especially in this draft which is weak overall. And I definitely prefer Bowers over Clayborn, who is overrated, Heyward and Bailey who are both defensive tackles in a 4-3 or 3-4 ends, and a guy who hasn't played this year.
