Bwood's Highly Anticipated Post Combine Mock (2/27/13)

Posted · Report post

Alright friends, haters, this is my second mock draft of the season. I did one all the way back when we were looking at a top 5 pick so it's completely irrelevant now. I'll do one last mock the week leading up to the draft.

Unfortunately I am only able to post on the huddle from my IPhone, so I can't include cool pictures or videos or bolded text to enhance the importance of my mock. My mock is completely based off of where I have players ranked, and my list of needs for our team. Since none of us know exactly what Gettleman will do, nor are we aware of who we will sign in free agency, just like my mock in December, this could change drastically.

Enjoy.



Round 1 pick 14, The Carolina Panthers select...

Desmond Trufant, CB - Washington: I have been a huge Desmond Trufant fan since he came onto the field as a true freshman. The level of complex and diverse offensive schemes that the PAC 12 is notorious for is just one reason why Trufant's four years of shutting down his man is most impressive. With an absolutely impressive combine and senior bowl to back up his tape, Des has now sky rocketed his stock, and could even go as high as the 10th pick much like Stephon Gilmore last year. If Gamble is cut, the Panthers could be looking to bring in a proven shutdown corner to replace him.

(Other option's: Star Lotulelei, Xavier Rhodes, Kenny Vacarro)


Round 2 pick 45, The Carolina Panthers select...

Jesse Williams, NT - Alabama: At the beginning of the drat process, I suspected Williams would lock up a top 15 draft selection. He was projected to break Stephen Paea's bench press record, and display his rare athleticism at this weeks combine, and though he might have drastically underachieved his expected amount of reps, Jesse still ran very well for his size and showed excellent upper body strength He's a pure run stuffer, and a very good one with a nonstop motor, but he's a Nose Tackle that didn't blow up the combine like Dontari Poe so he will slip to the second round. Jesse Williams is the ideal replacement for Ron Edwards, and with our first two picks in the draft we would have solidified our defensive unit for a long while.

(Other option's: Larry Warford, Justin Hunter, John Jenkins, Menelik Watson)



Round 4 pick 107, The Carolina Panthers select...

Brian Winters, OG - Kent State: Winters had to stop 9 reps into his bench press due to a pectoral strain, so he was unable to show off his strength and had to miss some other workouts as well. That doesn't change the fact that Winters is widely regarded as a top 5 guard prospect, though. Starting his career playing all 12 games at right tackle and earning MAC third team honors as a sophomore playing left tackle. His future in the NFL will either be at right tackle or inside at guard. Winters displays great distribution of weight and quickness of the snap, natural pass block abilities.

(Other option's: Kenny Stills, Tavarres King, Alvin Bailey)



Round 5 pick 141, The Carolina Panthers select....

Chris Harper, WR - Kansas State: The 6'1" 229 lb Chris Harper has often drawn comparisons to Anquan Bodin. Running a 4.55 forty and benching 20 reps proved that Harper truly is a big strong target just like Boldin, which makes him a very intriguing prospect in the mid rounds. I'd like us to address receiver earlier, or in free agency, but like I said it's really hard to determine what direction to go with a new GM.



Round 6 pick 169, The Carolina Panthers select....

Zeke Motta, FS - Notre Dame: This is the only duplicated pick from my previous mock draft. I feel Motta is extremely underrated and is only a slightly version than his former teammate Harrison Smith. Not saying Zeke could be a starter, but definitely good potential and a solid special teamer.



Round 6 pick 184, The Carolina Panthers select...

Dustin Hopkins, K - Florida State: *Obligatory kicker pick*




How would you feel about this?

Not bad, winters had a decent senior bowl. I also like Alvin Bailey at that spot

I like it. However, I see the Bucs taking Trufant at 13 as they need a corner as well. Hopefully they pass because I am on board with this pick.

You mean on the field right? I can't find his 40 anywhere. DNP I believe.

This may literally be the worst mock I have ever seen. You say you would pick Trufant over Star and Williams over Warford and Hunter? That is seriously reaching for need and not BPA.

Yeah, not sure where the time comes in and all were disappointed in his lifts where he said he would do 45-50 but did around 30.

But, he would be fine with the 2nd rounder. Not like the top ten guy you thought he would be earlier.

Hoping for Lance Johnson or Warmack with the first one.

I threw up at "Trufant".
I really did. As good as he is, you're going to really take him over guys that could be there (Floyd, Rhodes, Vaccaro, Keenan)???

Ima go finish throwing up.

Oh no I chose a player that is completely worthy of the pick over other big names like Floyd/Rhodes/Vacarro!!! What an idiot!!!

See if you actually looked at prospects other than your favorite overrated prospects than you would understand this.

And if you read the part where I said this is based on where I have players ranked and what our needs are.

Floyd, Rhodes, and Vacarro might not be available, so I went with a realistic, outside the box pick.

I had a hard time choosing between the two, like I said it all depends on free agency.

They may be available.
If they are, would you still take Trufant over them? I hope not. CB is a huge need also but I would not go Trufant if Rhodes or Banks is on the board.

I'm not bashing you idiot. But this is just probably the worst mock Ive seen in a long time and it just had to come from you

But I love Jesse in the 2nd. Kudos and Pie to you

might change the dt to brandon or sylvester williams

if you go late wr i rather have KING T lol (wouldnt mind stills though)

actually i have to go watch more tape on chris harper.....

i really like uzzi as a late guard but winters seems great too.

maybe you could switch motta with wolff,lagrande or duke.....

i like sturgis slightly better than hopkins...just seems more clutch and always hits the sure goals.

you wouldnt consider trading back for extra picks?

I do really like the mock overall. Trufant is going to be damn good but at 14, we really should go BPA. Though some could make the case that Trufant would be BPA. It would just be a huge reach for me personally

Bwoods "highly anticipated" post combine mock draft.......only in Bwoods mind


That said. If those players you mentioned are still available are on the board, Trufant would be my last choice.
Overall pretty good mock though. Like jesse williams a lot. Don't think he'll be there at our second round pick though.

Explain how it's the worst mock of all time? Especially when free agency hasn't even happened yet nor do we know Gettleman's draft strategy.

If Floyd was on the board, I would take him in a heart beat. Rhodes and Trufant are neck and neck for me as far as prospects go, I've admired Trufant for longer though. And like I said PAC 12 corners are very well trained.

Star is an interesting thought, I'm beginning to think he will be available but I don't know if I want to risk a pick on him.

I do not like Vacarro very much, though he is probably the number one safety on our board so it's a possibility.

Like I said this draft is based on where I have players ranked and what our biggest needs are.

Trufant is going to be a hell of a player and I am one if the first if many to rank him this high, and deservingly so.

It was a toss up between Brandon and Jesse, but I figured we wouldn't wanna become notorious for taking chances on small school guys in the 2nd round.

I don't like to do mock drafts with trade backs because that's even sillier than doing a mock draft. I would like us to trade back, though.

I like Trufant as well. Sad that two months ago people thought he'd be a reach in the 2nd and now he's arguably the #2 CB on the board. Honestly I'd rather take the Lotuleilei, Warford/Hunter/Patton path.

I really like the mock there are a million different ways this could go and if this is the way it goes I would be perfectly happy. I love Williams in the second I am quite surprised that he coul fall this low.
