2011 Mock Draft: Son of a Beach (Take II)

16 posts in this topic

Ijalana is said to carry a first round grade now after his pro day, though he may slip. I really have zero interest in Dalton or any QB this season.

I'd rather patch DT and CB early if OL isn't available.

This may be surprising...but the position I am beginning to want patching up first is actually OL ahead of the DL. This may sound crazy but we need both a RG starter and a flex T/G player for depth. If we are throwing a rookie, Clausen, or some fragile vet like Bulger/Volek in next year, the first and foremost need is protection.

Also...yeah, its pretty easy to look past this QB class...I agree its just not that special. I just feel that we may be getting a QB somehow in this draft whether we want it to happen or not. If so, my choices are either just take Newton #1 and hope for the best or we're trading down and Kaep/Dalton/Stanzi are the only ones that seem to fit in our new Coryell-esque system. So its not that I actually want these guys, but if we are going QB in this draft, they're my top choices.

Truthfully, who I want for QB lies within the potentially awesome 2012 class with Jones, Luck, Barkley, & Cousins. I am really interested to watch what Landry does next season b/c I think he could be better than Bradford.

I am beginning to see where you're coming from for QB. Its gonna take a some time to transition our players from the Fox era into Rivera's system fully and we'll most likely be starting some vet next year anyway. So, I do think it makes sense to just keep Clausen, Moore, ****** up Bulger, see how it goes and if Clausen is doing better and give him some playing time down the stretch. If its looking gloomy, I think we'll be in great position to draft either Jones or Cousins (pending any Locker-esque disaster season).

But like I said, I am assuming to a degree we are taking a QB. I don't necessarily want one this year, but Dalton/Kaep/Stanzi are the only ones other than Cam that fit with us beyond the 1st...so it makes sense if we don't go Cam and our coaches are still wanting a QB to look at Dalton at the very least.

Like I said, if we keep the pick, I'm all for Newton. That's it really...and if we trade back, its Peterson, Green, or Dareus in my book.

Also, I just wanted to re-express my opinion that Curtis Brown is gonna be a great NFL player.

**Altered for my change of mind about this whole Cam situation

I don't know much about Stanzi, but I'm not opposed if he fits the vertical O concept.

I love this draft.

I think that looks like a heckuva haul for the Panthers.
