Sorthnarolina's 7 Round Mock Draft 6.0...

3 posts in this topic

I really don't feel like posting on here during the lockout but I felt a mock draft building up in my loins. Need to get it out.

1st Cam Newton QB - It's just easier to pick Newton than to bang my head on the wall thinking about all the reasons for or against going QB. I'm on the PP orchestra train but I'm hopping off as soon as the #1 pick is announced. I find the love/hate for him pathetic and too embarrassing to even discuss.

I would much rather go BPA. I'd be fine with Green, Dareus, or Peterson here. But I'm just fatigued, I'd rather get used to the idea of Newton and be surprised on draft day. Let's take a shot at it. Hurney's 1st round grade is spectacular and Rivera looks like a solid judge of character so I think if they pick Newton he will turn out being our franchise QB down the line.

3rd James Carpenter OT/OG - Jeff Otah is officially undependable. We should prepare as if he's not even a part of the team. If he stays healthy it's a bonus.

3rd(comp) Jarvis Jenkins DT - solid pick for D-line rotation.

4th Chimdi Chekwa CB - Whether or not I would want this guy to start, we don't have the greatest depth of talent in the secondary anyways.

5th Lawrence Wilson WLB - I have a thing for LBers good in pass coverage. I liked Brian Rolle but his small size may not take in the NFL according to conventional thinking, He's a good one too.

6th Mike McNeill TE - good TE prospect not quite the wacky basketball prospect I want. Good enough.

7th Ladi Ajiboye DT - I pretty much am picking him because of the cool name. Weed charge but isn't considered lazy.

I figure we'll need to explore FA a lot for Defensive tackles. The trade down scenario is great but it's probably not going to happen.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
