New SB Nation Mock Draft

15 posts in this topic

1. Carolina Panthers: Cam Newton, QB, Auburn. As much of a risk as Blaine Gabbert might be with the first overall pick, Newton is a significantly bigger one. His star power, however, may be too hard for the Panthers to pass up - and the idea of a division featuring Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Josh Freeman and Newton is incredibly enticing.

2. Denver Broncos: Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU. After releasing Jamal Williams and Justin Bannan last week, defensive tackle is Denver's most pressing need. There's an excellent chance that John Elway's Broncos take advantage of a deep DT class and a high second-round pick so that they can take arguably the best prospect here.

3. Buffalo Bills: Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson. Bills head coach Chan Gailey is committed to running a defense featuring 3-4 and 4-3 looks - and what the Bills really lack defensively is a player that can pressure the quarterback out of both fronts. Bowers is a versatile athlete capable of moving around with nose tackle Kyle Williams.

4. Cincinnati Bengals: Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri. Carson Palmer's continued insistence, through various media leaks, that he's done in Cincinnati will likely force the Bengals' hand here if either Newton or Gabbert is available. In either case, Cincinnati would likely target a veteran while the rookie grooms - just as they did with Palmer.

5. Arizona Cardinals: Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M. There's little question that aside from quarterback, rush linebacker is Arizona's biggest area of concern. As the Cardinals are expected to take the veteran route at quarterback, there's a very reasonable chance the rock-solid Miller winds up atop Arizona's big board.

Upon further review it appears they are basing a large part of that on the guy who cited sources close to himself. Which was pretty funny.

Just not sure about any of the QB's in this draft, but I'd bet there is one that will suprise all of us(don't know who). I saw a thread about Kaepernik, the kid's got game, but I don't think he would do very well here, we have too many young QB's on the roster as it is. And with all the talk about Steve Smith, we would have a very young group of WR's to go along with a very young QB. We need a vet QB for a couple year's for sure.

Potential, keeping up with our division QB's and his star power is why I think he will be the pick hopefully he steps it up at the Pro Day.

Best Mock Draft I seen this year....

All I have to say what do we have the lose its either Cam going be good or he going be a bust.But the Panthers might just go ahead and pull the trigger and pray to god he be good.Everybody in the world is doubting the kid, every were I go people are already saying he will be a Jamarcus Russell or and Ryan Leaf or he going be the biggest bust ever.. The Panthers just need to make sure is this who they want because we arent going to be never a good team into we have a QB. Because we cant count on having Andrew Luck next year or Barkley we might be in the top 10 but there is no chance they fall past the top 3. Maybe this is the year the panthers get there QB.Or maybe not?

If we go offense and keep the number 1 pick it will Cam newton but if we go defense it maybe marcell Dareus witch i have no problem with. Also 2 dark horses Von Miller and Patrick Peterson..

    • I know that Barner, Gaffney, and probably Artis-Payne haven't worked out, but I have a special feeling this time.
    • I like the presentation, but not a fan of any of this except for Ross in the 2nd, but that will not happen at 40.  No way Tabor goes at 8. The UF corners are pretty pedestrian this year and if we're going CB at 8 (God I hope not) it should be Lattimore or White. Ross won't be there at 40. Westbrook after taking a speedster to enhance our WR unit after we gave up Ealy for that selection?  Williams is decent and think he will be a solid RB, so no issue with this pick. Gerald Everett is a faster version of Funchess and more akin to Washington's Reed, so not really what our offense needs. We need more of a balanced TE like Howard or Shaheen. I don't mind a DB in R5, but after using our 8th pick on him, definitely don't want to double down with Bradberry, Tabor, Worley, and Captain on board. By R6, can't hate the depth DT selection especially with one of Star or KK not here after 2017. Butler should be a starter by '18, but more depth in the trenches is good. Can't say I've heard of Humphries, so nicely done on putting a FCS guy on the radar. Nothing wrong with a camp body to push for the QB3 duties down the line, and maybe up to QB2.
