Player Rankings

As it pertains to this team:

1. Andrew Luck*, QB, Stanford

2. DaQuan Bowers, DE, Clemson

3. Marcell Darius, DT, Alabama

4. Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska

5. Patrick Peterson, CB, Louisiana State

6. Justin Blackmon*, WR, Oklahoma State

7. AJ Green, WR, Georgia

8. Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn

9. Robert Quinn, DE, North Carolina

10. Rodney Hudson, G/C, Florida State

* denotes redshirt sophmore

DaQuan Bowers is horrendously overrated IMO. The guy is 6'4'' 280...DEs that size are a dime a dozen. The only players worth the money that a top 5 contract will pay them are Luck, Mallett, Peterson, Green and possibly Locker. The rest are bad picks IMO if they go before any of those guys (which they will because of need).

LOL. You keep pointing out his size, which isn't an issue, and speak nothing of his ability, athleticism, or production, all of which are exceptional.

This list is way off imo, Mallet at second overall!?! Is that you Houston Nutt???

Top 10 Draft Prospects

1. Andrew Luck

2. Patrick Peterson

3. A.J. Green

4. Marcel Dareus

5. DaQuan Bowers

6. Prince Amukamara

7. Robert Quinn

8. Nick Fairley

9. Adrian Clayborn

10. Akeem Ayers (don't let the fact that UCLA sucks fool you about this kid)

Top 10 Panthers Prospects

1.Andrew Luck

2. Patrick Peterson

3. A.J. Green

4. Marcel Dareus

5. DaQuan Bowers

6.Robert Quinn

7. Nick Fairley

8. Justin Blackmon

9. Prince Amukamara

10. Adrian Clayborn

(Mallet and Locker aren't worthy of being in our top 10 prospects list with the other players in the draft. I think both will be good pros but they aren't going to be great or elite pros like I think these 10 guys can be.)

If we dont get Luck we need to trade down and hope we get Pat Peterson, AJ Green, or D Bowers along with a 2nd since our inept coaching staff decided armanti edwards was worth that pick

the problem with that theory is that Peterson and Green (and possibly Bowers) will both be gone after pick 5. So at most you're trading down 3-4 picks and more then likely would only get a third for that....

Please someone tell me the last time someone traded down out of the 1st or 2nd pick overall? The Eli Manning for Rivers trade was a special circumstance because Eli protested playing anywhere but New York. So other than that one time...when was the last time it happened?

If you would rather have a defender than Ryan Mallett then you are a nut. Ask yourself if you were in our position would you rather have Flacco or Revis? We are the definition of a rebuilding football team. You rebuild with QBs and every review I've read has said that if Luck doesn't come out this year then Mallett is the no-brainer #1 overall pick. So why wouldn't you take him #2??

Because Mallet isn't worth the #1 pick simple as that. You don't reach for a guy at #1 or #2 in the draft. Mallet isn't on the same level of Andrew Luck, no QBs in this draft are. If Luck doesn't come out this year you go BPA which would be Peterson or Green unless you can trade down. Mallet is Jimmy Clausen, both are going to be fair-good pros, no more no less.....

THANK YOU, and we need extra picks. I was thinking Pat Peterson, Green, or Bowers would be there at 6 or 7 and someone who is sold on Mallet will trade a 2nd and a 4th to get him. That gives us another year to rebuild and possibly pick our qb the following year. We wont know until April though: combine, pro days, who's declaring... Remember for every Andrew Luck theres a Ryan Leaf or JRUSS. Poor Jake Locker would have been 1st overall had he come out last year and now he's looking like a 2nd or 3rd rounder
