Two week away, trade down draft
Posted 16 April 2011 - 10:44 AM
#1 Cincinnati Cam Newton QB
Cincy has the possibility of losing the whole fan base if Palmer, TO and 85 are not there next season. They make this move even though there are questions about the pick.
Carolina gets the #35 pick in the second round
#2 Denver Marcel Dareus DT
#3 Buffalo Blaine Gabbert QB
#4 Dallas Patrick Peterson DB
Dallas has starters at almost all positions except for DB. Instead of racking up picks as is his morm, Jerry Jones pulls the trigger to get an exciting player and possbily the best in the draft in Peterson.
Carolina gets the #40 pick in the second round
#5 Arizona Von Miller LB
#6 Cleveland AJ Green WR
#7 SF Prince Amakamura DB
#8 Tennesee Nick Fairly DT
#9 Carolina Julio Jones WR
Panthers know that very soon Steve Smith will no longer be with the team. They pick Jones because of his speed, blocking ability, toughness and readiness for the NFL after being in Nick Sabans offense.
Picks from there on:
#35 Phil Taylor DT Weak area gets exponentially stronger
#40 Danny Watkins G Very tough guy with high motor
#65 Davon House DB Marshall gone
#97 Jaquizz Rogers RB As much as we hate it, DeAngelo is gone
#132 Colin McCarthy LB Anderson gone, TD suspect knees, another U LB here
#166 Chris Hairston OT Otahs health?
#203 Terrel McClain DT Landri competition
#244 Kai Forbath K Hey, lets face it, Kasay is getting older

WRs are a dime a dozen in the right offense and with the right QB. There is almost zero risk to taking Newton or Gabbert if the rookie salary cap is implemented. If that rule is put in place then you sign him for 5 years 20 million bucks. If he doesn't work out then you cut ties and it doesn't matter.

even as a bama fan... I see a TON of Dwayne Jarrett in Julio Jones
Really? What about him just curious?
