Mock Draft

Here is a quick mock i made. No fancy pictures/videos or detailed descriptions. Just straight to the point.

Round 1: Fletcher Cox DT

Seems to be the flavor of the week right now. Cox is exactly what we need at DT. He is a relentless pass rusher with upside to get even better. He is also versatile. I believe he can make an instant impact.

Round 2: Janoris Jenkins CB

Jenkins has his red flags but that does not diminish his value as arguably the best cover corner in the draft. He needs to clean up his act and Rivera is the man to do that. He would look great starting opposite Gamble.

Round 4: Cam Johnson DE

This is wishful thinking on my part. Johnson might be gone by round 3 but i'm hoping injuries and lack of production may cause him to fall. Johnson is versatile, solid against the run, and when healthy has the ability to be a ferocious pass rusher.

Round 5: Terrell Manning LB

Manning is a pretty good overall LB. He can be little reckless at times. Also shows the versatility to play inside and out.

Round 6: Devon Wylie WR/RS

Some more wishful thinking. Wylie might fall due to injuries and size concerns. But, he just ran in the 4.3's and may be drafted in the 4th. This guy screams Wes Welker to me. Can cause damage in our offense. Also doubles up as a dynamic return man.

Round 6: Danny Trevathan OLB

Trevathan is constantly making big plays. I don't know why he is rated so low. He is a good blitzer with sideline to sideline speed. He would fit in nicely at WLB for us.

Round 7: Drew Butler P

Might as well get a punter on board with our last pick.

I am conflicted about taking DT in the 1st but I do think FC is worthy of the 9 pick and it looks like this will be the best option. I think if Jenkins is there in the 2nd it might be worth the risk. Smitty can keep him in line if he needs an attitude adjustment (see Ken Lucas). I think Manning will be a gem.

What's up guys,

I was just reading an excellent mock draft from the guys at [url="http://www.sportsmasher.com"]http://www.sportsmasher.com[/url]

Everyone has the Panthers taking a Defensive Lineman in the first round. I've seen:

-Fletcher Cox
-Michael Brockers
-Quentin Coples
-Melvin Ingram

I understand that D-Line is a major need, and defense in general. However say Michael Floyd was available.

I think I would rather grab a playmaking stud wideout for Cam in the first round, then focus on defensive line and defense in general during the rest of the draft.

Say we grab:

-Michael Floyd in first
-Jerel Worthy, Devon Still, Mike Martin, Vinny Curry in the second.

I think that would be better than say:

-Cox in the first
-Reuben Randle in the second

What do you guys think?

Here is a link to their mock - really detailed. Good stuff:

You don't think a big time young weapon opposite Smith would make sense?

Makes the already scary offense even scarier.

What are you thinking? All D?

Also just read that Stephen Hill is visiting Panthers.Strange because he isn't worth pick #9 and will be gone by or second rounder.

[sub]I've been looking at alot of these mock drafts. I think they wait to see if Claiborne falls, and if he doesn't they trade back and pick up a few extra picks.[/sub]

Love every pick. Don't see Cam Johnson being there in the fourth though.
