This is probably my last mock draft for this draft. I will include two different scenarios where we stay at nine then a trade down. This is what I think will happen, not what i think SHOULD happen or what I want to happen.

First scenario: Staying with the ninth pick.


With the ninth pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Carolina Panthers select...




Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis


6'4 - 346 - 4.87


Posted Image



Dontari Poe will be considered a reach this high by most. His upside however is immense and with coaching from defensive minded head coach Ron Rivera, Poe could very well become Carolina's own version of Haloti Ngata. No man that is 6'4, 346 lbs should be able to move like Poe. If I were making this pick, I would take one of three players. Quinton Coples, Fletcher Cox or Nick Perry assuming that Morris Claiborne and Justin Blackmon are gone. Dontari Poe's size would create massive gaps for our linebackers to shoot through to stop the run. Poe also offers an unexpectedly good pass rush which is better than most of the other Defensive tackles in this draft.




2nd Round


Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia


5'9 - 182 lbs - 4.44


Posted Image



If Brandon Boykin were 6'0, he would be a top 15 pick. Boykin plays the game with more passion than any other corner in this draft. He has outstanding return ability to go along with great ball skills. The only downside to selecting Brandon Boykin, if there is one, is that he primarily played in a two deep zonetype defense at Georgia. I see Boykin becoming a Brandon Flowers caliber cornerback in the NFL.




4th Round


Keshawn Martin, WR, Michigan State


6'0 - 188 lbs - 4.45


Posted Image



I love Keshawn Martin as a mid round sleeper. He has good hands and very good speed to create seperation from corners. He doesn't always fight for the ball like you would like to see in a receiver, but with a little position coaching help from Steve Smith I don't see that being too much of a problem. Martin has reportedly drawn interest from teams in the second round. I beleive they see what I see, which is quite possibly the next Mike Wallace.



5th Round


Ryan Miller, G/T, Colorado


6'7 - 321 lbs - 5.27


Posted Image


Ryan Miller was once considered a second round pick. After having a poor senior bowl and average combine, Miller's stock took a huge hit. At the Senior Bowl, Miller displayed poor footwork which may cause him to make the move to guard in the NFL. The upside is still there at Tackle however and if Jeff Otah stinks it up again, Miller would battle with Byron Bell for the starting job at right tackle.



6th Round


Bryan Anger, P, California


6'3 - 208 - 4.75


Posted Image


Anger is the best punter in the draft and could be selected as high as the fifth round. Jason Baker was released which was expected. That leaves a hole at punter and Bryan Anger will be one of the best at his position in the NFL.



7th Round


Adrien Robinson, TE, Cincinnati


6'4 - 264 - 4.55


Posted Image


Adrien Robinson was not invited to the combine but blew up his pro day running a 4.55 forty yard dash. Robinson is similar in size to Antonio Gates who Rob Chudzinski coached in San Diego and has similar athleticism. Robinson should be drafted late by a team looking for some sort of project.




second scenario: trade down


just quickly throwing it out there. we trade down to a team looking to move up for Richardson, Tannehill, or whoever and acquire a 2nd round pick.


1-Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

2a-Boykin

2b-Harrison Smith, S, Notre Dame

4-Martin

5-Miller

6-Anger

7-Robinson

I like it well enough, just wish we'd address OLB before a mid round WR. If Boykin has talent, his stature won't be that big of an issue. I don't know much about him, but I'd have a hard time picking him over Minnifield or Gilmore if they're available (I know most recent belief is Gilmore will be a late 1st or before we pick in the 2nd).

People said the same thing about capt. we all know how that ended. Really don't like this mock. Not 1 LB really???

I wouldn't be upset with this draft. There's no way we can address every single need missing a 3 rounder, so I can't complain about not drafting a linebacker.

But getting a WR in the 4th another olinemen after our FA signings and another short Cb is ok. No I don't think so.

Once you get to the 4th round you go BPA anyways. Outside of QB and running back, there's not a position on the team that couldn't stand to use an upgrade on the depth chart.

Their are 10-12 LB rated to go in the 4th and 5th round. I see that as a bigger need then WR.

Plus we are most likely going to get a sixth of seventh round compensatory pick so throw in a line backer there

Or we can just say screw the whole wr thing in the 4th and get a LB then. Also we should not draft Capt. 2.0 Boykins.

First things first. Poe in the first, for me, shouldn't happen. All he has is an impressive combine. That doesn't cut it. I hope the front office does it's due diligence with this guy. I'll gladly accept him on to the roster if they pick him in the first. As of now, I say hell no. Second, Boykins bothers me in the second round, when you can have other CB's in the second. Hayward, Minnifield, Hosley, Dennard,Robinson, Johnson etc.

Martin was a reach for me.

Love the 5th pick.
Ditto on the 6th, but think he would be available for us in the early 7th round.
The surprise pick was the TE, good pick. If he's there in the 7th, he definitely fits the profile Chudzinski looks for in a TE.

Second scenario was kinda better. But Boykins doesn't do it for me.
