I understand Mo is THE guy everybody wants. However what is wrong with Dre Kirkpatrick? The Marijuana arrest concerns me but I thought he was a 10-15th pick guy. I would be very pleased with either of them. I can live with mediocre DTs but watching Captain Munnerlyn start just grates on me.

If Claiborne drops to us, which I don't think he will, I would try like hell to trade back. Don't get me wrong, I think he is a great player, but trading back is our best option no matter who is at #9 simply because we need lots of talent. The FO says itself we build through the draft. Trade back, get another first or second, draft three best defensive players available in first 2 rounds.


This is what I hope happens. Trade back with the Cowgirls and maybe Decastro falls to there and we get him as well as an extra 2nd or 3rd and use it on Tru Johnson. Win-win.

Yeah I have a feeling he'll drop to us, and we pass on him for Poe or Coples. I'm not saying that's what I want to happen, but I think this coaching staff values DL more than CB.

I would personally like to trade down a few spots, get our 3rd round pick back and take Dontari Poe, then use said 3rd round pick on Joe Adams.

I've been saying for weeks that it'd never EVER happen, but it just might. Free agency has fallen just the right way and team needs could conspire to actually allow Morris Claiborne to fall to us at 9th overall.

Walterfootball's latest mock has it happening and it actually makes a ton of sense. However, the whole notion is completely dependent on three things:

1. The Browns MUST pick Ryan Tannehill 4th overall. This reach would set off a chain reaction allowing the pieces to fall into place for Claiborne to slip...

2. No team picks Claiborne simply because he's the BPA. This is unlikely, IMO, as most teams these days tend to pick players based on need. The possibility remains that the Bucs take him for this reason, even though they feel they've addressed the CB position with Ronde returning, Talib still around, and Eric Wright signed. The Dolphins simply do not need a CB and wouldn't take Claiborne, IMO. The Rams just signed Cortland Finnegan and need a WR badly. The Jags also signed some guys at CB and likely prefer to go OL or WR.

3. Nobody trades up ahead of us once Claiborne begins to drop. This is the wild card. Once he makes it past the Rams a team like the Cowboys could attempt to move up and both Jax and Miami are prime teams to trade down.

If those 3 things happen - and it's very possible they do - Morris Claiborne will be a Panther at 9th overall. Way I figure:

1. Colts: Luck, QB
2. Redskins: RG3, QB
3. Vikings: Kalil, OT
4. Browns: Tannehill, QB
5. Bucs: Richardson, RB
6. Rams: Blackmon, WR
7. Jags: Reiff, OT/Floyd, WR
8. Dolphins: Coples, DE/Ingram, DE/Reiff, OT
9. Panthers: Jack-fuging-pot!

Or something like that. I'm actually optimistic now about the chance of this happening. Never thought he'd make it out of the top-5, but things have come together so perfectly it just might be on the verge of happening.

Wake up you are dreaming

I doubt he would pass on Claborne for a dt

Both scenarios have Coples going before out pick. That happening really improves our chances.

It all depends on the Browns. If they take an offensive player, and not named Richardson. That will trigger his fall. The Browns need to take Tannenhill.

I would love to see it too but I just don't see all those teams passing on him.

There is no way that 8 teams pass on Claiborne. Flat out won't happen.

If the Viking go Kalil which is possible
If the Browns go Tannehill
Then the Bucs are key....do they take Trent Richardson or Claiborne
Rams will take Blackmon
Jags - Floyd/Ingram
Miami - Reif/Coples
Us

13 passed on Revis (14 if you include us). Just saying. But I would have to admit it seems unlikely.

The teams that need a CB in the top 10

The Vikings - Claiborne vs Kalil
The Bucs - Richardson vs Claiborne
The Browns - Tannehill vs Blackmon vs Claiborne vs Richardson

Anything is possible. However, I just think he is too good for teams to pass on. He won't get past the Bucs.

One good sign is that the bucs did not take a rb in FA where they had a pretty good selection.The concern is Talibs court date has been pushed back until June 25th but the plaintiff has been arrested twice for sexual assult since the incidence.My guess a good attorney could get him out of this but thats not to say the NFL will.They could also get a pretty good cb with their 2nd pick.
