Taking Coples at 9 just doesnt seem the most optimal imo.

We can get arguably the best pure pass rusher in the draft in Vinny Curry in the second. Had like 20 sacks his last two years as Marshal. Posted almost 100 tackles as a dlinemen last year! Nice moves, combined with an endless motor and very long 35 inch arms! There is even a chance Nick Perry will be there in the second along with Chandler Jones.



So i'm thinking the best thing to do is go CB in the first and DE in the 2nd. Trade back for a 3rd. Then go OLB in the 3rd.

Imagine this draft.

1st - Jenkins
2nd - Vinny Curry or Nick Perry or Chandler Jones
3rd - Bruce Irving or Mychal Kendricks

Come away with the best cover corner and arguably the 2 best pass rushers in the draft.

Nick Perry has a slight chance of being there.

Chandler Jones is rocketing up boards and will likely be gone by pick #20.

Lastly...no way that we take a guy like Jenkins in the first.

No way in hell I'd take Jenkins with the 9th pick.

Curry seems extremely reactive from that video. He seems to be very aware and changes his pursuit extremely quickly. Granted that IS a highlight video and pretty much everyone looks good in highlight videos.

I doubt we would spend a first on Jenkins. I could see Gilmore being an option at 9 though.

The scenario I presented was with a trade down with an added 3rd round pick. So our pick would not be at 9.

You dont get almost 100 tackles as a dlinemen without being extremely aware and having some nice agility. Not to mention needing a non stop motor.

Add the insane number of tackles to his 12 sacks and 14 tackles for loss and man, thats a freaking steal in the 2nd as far as im concerned.

The best CB DE combo would be Claiborne and Jones.

We trade back we could go Jones, Jenkins, and Lavonte David....

Jenkins is def better than Claiborne when it comes to pure coverage skills and fluidity.

As of right now id give Curry and Perry the edge in pure pass rushing abilities with Jones having more potential / upside.

Well I'm glad that's just your opinion

If we traded with New England, who gives up their 1st rounders we could go with the following options:

CB: Jenkins
DE: Jones or Perry (depending on who is available)

and then in then 2nd:
LB: Zach Brown or Lavonte David

Get them to throw in their 3rd (it'd be pretty even trade with value chart):
LB: Terrell Manning (I think he goes higher than we've been thinking).

Dream draft.

NE would never do that.

I doubt we could even get another 2nd, a 3rd is much more realistic.

Draft value chart:
New England's first 2 picks = 1270
Carolina Panthers #9 pick = 1350

There is a reason so many teams are trying to trade back. Not alot of elite talent outside of the top 5 picks and to many quality guys to be had in the 1st and 2nd.

Like I said, getting a 3rd is much more realistic

Throw the value charts out the window....they are not valid under the new rookie payscale.
