Monster Mock offseason 1

8 posts in this topic

I haven't done a mock like this in a while. In this mock, I will hit on the new changes that I believe the Panthers will see in the offseason. One of those changes will be a new GM and another one will probably be a new HC.

Ernie Accorsi is the consultant for the Carolina Panthers and he will lead the GM search. He has ties all around the league due to the fact that he is a former GM of the New York Giants. I'm sure guys like Marc Ross and Tom Gamble will get a interview. I'm going to go out on the limb and present you guy will a surprise candidate who should garner a lot of interest this offseason.

General Manger- Nick Caserio

A quarterback at John Carroll University, Caserio has served in a variety of coaching and scouting capacities for the Patriots since 2001. He was named Director of Player Personnel following the 2007 season.

His latest draft picks are Jerod Mayo, Patrick Chung, Sebastian Vollmer, Devin McCourty, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Nate Solder, Stevan Ridley, and Chandler Jones.

HC- Nick Saban

If Caserio became the General manager for the Panthers I believe the first person he would pursue is Nick Saban. I know Saban first time in the NFL wasn't so good. Pete Caroll first time at HC wasn't good either with the Patriots. I believe Saban is ready again to make the jump. What more can he do at Alabama?

Draft pick #5 overall- Jonathan Hankins

I think we miss out on Star and Jockel and go with the best person on the board which will be Hankins. Hankins will be a power pig at the next level. He has the potential to be very similar to Bj Raji. Some even compare him to the likes of Vince Wilfork because of his 325 frame.

I love Hankins if Star is gone.

Poo to Caserio and especially Saban.

Patriots recent draft picks are so bad. So so bad.

And Saban failed once. Culpepper over Brees? Lol

Pretty sure Ernie Accorsi will pick Marc Ross or Tom Gamble for GM. Nick Saban? Man... no.... just... no. I like the Hankins pick though.

Hell no to the guy drafting for the Patriots lately. Other than a few hits (Gronk, Mayo, and the jury is still out on Solder, Ridley and Jones) he has SUCKED at drafting. He's been worse than Hurney at drafting, and there's not really even any room for disagreement there.

Yup 125.99% agree.

Patriots recent drafts are poo.

They passed up on so many top tier prospects to add more picks each year to only draft mediocre players. And Belichick gets praise for that. Theres a reason why they're not a dominant team anymore bc they have a bunch of mediocre players on that team.

    • Mitchell would be a mistake IMO. He's too short to play with Walker. It would be the NBA's smallest backcourt. 
    • Look at this from Greg's viewpoint: 1. We did not draft or bring in a TE (many of us, including me, thought the team might bring in a young TE) Greg knows we have few options at this point. 2. Greg is about to retire (2-3 years) and his stock will never be higher.  He has led the team in receiving for a few years. 3. He knows there is cap room.  Gettlemen wants to carry  that over to re-sign 3 hog mollies for 2018; Olsen wants it now.) I think the Panthers lack of movement at TE has Olsen in a great negotiating position. Now let's take a look at the Panther's position: His quote about business and productivity could backfire on him. Businesses sign contracts for future services.  People sign them every day and honor them.  I may sign a long-term contract for less than I am worth, but in turn, I get security.  If you think you are worth more, don't sign.  I think the problem is the transparency over salaries.  If you know what Jacob Tamme made last year because his agent worked out a great deal, you can use that to negotiate a new deal for Olsen if you compare the numbers.  However, Tamme may have underperformed his deal, and it is erroneous to assume the performance of others based on their contracts is fair market value.  What they offer and what you take is fair market value. If Olsen wants a deal based on his productivity, remove his guaranteed money and make it incentive based. Take away the guarantees and make it possible for him to earn $10m--or $2m, depending on his productivity.  I am sure that he wants the security of the current deal and the Panthers to assume all risk.   Do you think the Raiders did not think that Jamarcus Russell's deal should equal productivity?  It is a gamble for both sides--a 4-5 year contract is security.  Guaranteed money you take for a promise to perform at your highest level for the length of the contract.  Olsen is not giving money back if he has a bad year, I assure you.  Contracts are not rewards, they only concern themselves with the now and the future. So where you ranked last year and the year before that---that simply means the Panthers made a wise investment in Greg Olsen.  I mean, if I invest in Cisco stock, buying it at $40 per share because it is expected to rise to $50 per share and it ends the year at $60, Cisco does not come to me and say, "We should have charged you more when you bought our shares--can we have an additional $8 per share?" THAT is business . Olsen should blame himself if he signed a lower deal than he is worth.  If he did not believe he was worth more then, why should the Panthers pay more now?  The Panthers paid him fair market value and he accepted the offer. I think it is bad practice to start paying people who outperform their contracts
