I have to say, I like this guy's mock. Don't think it'll work out like this for us (it was last updated Dec 31), but this is probably my favorite semi-reasonable mock yet:

1st: Blackmon (yea, I know we need defense and I'm big on the "all early picks should be spent on defense" train too but at our first round pick he's a good value and the only offensive player drafted in this mock)

2nd: Dontari Poe (mmm beef)

4th: Cliff Harris (personal problems aside, he really seems like a good CB and a damn good returner too)

5th: Jake Bequette DE Arkansas (don't know anything about this guy, ESPN Scout Insider says he's the 13th rated DE. 6'4.5, 263 lbs. Says he has a high motor, high intangibles, gave him a 2 for pass rush skills (1 is highest))

6th: Nathan Williams OLB Ohio State (don't know anything about this guy, ESPN Scout Insider says he's the 18th rated OLB (including 3-4 pass rushers and all). 6'2, 247 lbs. 3s pretty much across the board, meaning average. At least he isn't undersized like that Zack Williams guy we drafted in the 6th last year.)

7th: Bryan Anger P California (yay a Punter. ESPN Scout Insider says he's the 2nd rated Punter.

walter added a round 4 to his mock:

Carolina Panthers: Aaron Henry, S, Wisconsin
Sherrod Martin played one of the worst games I've ever seen out of a safety in the season finale at New Orleans. He's a disgrace and needs to be upgraded. Here's some competition for him.

JR would seem to agree with walter about Sherrod.

I see Hardy get pushed completely out of the play on run plays quite often. I would say he is below average in playing the run and average in pass rushing in comparison to other starting DE's in the NFL. You don't see Hardy blowing up running plays (ever) like CJ does.
Don't get me wrong, I think Hardy has all the tools to become a good DE for us, and this is a learning year for him, just like several players on our team. But, I do not think Hardy would be a starter on most NFL teams (right now) based on his inconsistency to hold the point of attack on run downs.


I see Hardy as average but with upside but I feel we have to find a way to get more pressure on the qb either through the DL or blitzs.We need someone who will put pressure on the qb consistantly. I think we should keep him but fell we need to upgrade the position.Having said that, will Couples be an upgrade? I do not know.Watching him a couple of times this year I would say not but I hear he was playing tackle etc....Is he the ideal physcial speciman....it appears so.Just watching him this year I would not even have him in the first round but he is rated up there for a reason.

He is very inconsistent and doesn't have a motor, you don't want to have that on your defensive line. He clearly has not be on the same level as his hype as a top 5 pick. I still see Robert Quinn the DE from UNC last year still been miles ahead of Coples. I don't want the Panthers to take him with our first pick. I believe our need is bigger at CB/DT/OT. No particular order
