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.

    • I'd love it if someone could do a compare & contrast post on Corey Davis, Zay Jones, Ross and maybe one or two of the other top WR prospects, ranking them on Speed Route running / separation Hands (catch percentage) Durability Fit in our offense For me, Ross is off my board (at least in the 1st round) due to his knees / injury risk.  Davis seems promising but it's hard for me to imagine DG going with him at #8.  Seems like one of other players we are likely to have ranked higher (Thomas, Adams, Fournette, Howard) might be available at #8.  Barnett & Lattimore might be above Davis on our Board and have a pretty high chance of being there at #8... I don't watch much college football at all. (Have enough trouble watching NFL games here in West Africa)  Don't know enough about Zay Jones and any of the other potential round 2 WR prospects....
    • I think Panthers fans would lose their minds if we took Lattimore. But he would be a stud for sure and pairing him with JB24 would be nice.
