2012 Mock Draft:Morris Claiborne at 5th Overall?

5 posts in this topic

With the hopes for the playoffs out the window, and the only thing winning more games would bring are pride for the players and possibly momentum for next season...I decided to see what kind of mocks were out there. Courtesy of Bleacher Report here you are...

The Carolina Panthers' future looks very bright thanks to the early success of Cam Newton. Offensively, the Panthers have a lot of pieces in place. However, the defense needs an upgrade at several key positions. At this point, Carolina could look to add the best player available and still hit a position of need.

LSU's Morris Claiborne has used his breakout season as a way to really improve his draft stock. Claiborne was kind of stuck in the shadow of Patrick Peterson, but now has emerged as an equally talented prospect.

Claiborne has good athletic ability, but even better instincts. He is capable of playing in any type of system. His ability to play bump-and-run will intrigue a lot of defensive coordinators. Claiborne also does a good job in zone, as he is capable of quickly breaking on the ball.

    • 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?
