Post Combine Mock Draft!
Posted 01 March 2013 - 12:40 AM
Make sure you give me your opinion because it helps me a lot. I will only include one COMP(6th round) pick this time even though they might have two. This is my second mock i think, my last was after the senior bowl.I will have a brief explanation for each, so lets get started.
Well so first I want to trade back in the first round to the 24-28 spot. Now I know there are a few teams that might want to trade up. Colts,Packers or Seattle all could want to move up for a better WR, OG, DE or CB.In return panthers would receive an extra 2nd and 5th round pick. I have saw this done a couple of times. So this could very well be a realistic trade for the panthers in terms of the draft chart points.
OKAY SO LETS GET STARTED!
1. Quinton Patton- Wr that does everything well. He already proved he can go against the big boys when he put 21 rec and over 200 yards on Texas Am, who beat BAMA. This guy is underrated and not many casual fans know him. He runs crisp,quick routes that allows him to get open in the middle and down field. He is also elusive in open space and has deceptive speed. He does not drop many passes and can track the hell out of the ball. Patton is also very good at catching fade passes in the end zone. He finished his season with 13 tds and over 1300 yards.Has been impressive at the senior bowl and the combine.I have heard comparisons to Reggie Wayne and Victor Cruz.
2.Brandon Williams- BIg DT that can penetrate and also COG up the middle to stop the run. He is from a small school but he will be playing by a solid vet in Edwards. He also had a very good senior bowl and combine, which showed he could get down with the big boys. He benched 38 reps(the best mark) and was not slow for his size. I think he can be one of the best DT taken out of this draft.
2.(trade) Darius Slay-CB from Miss. State who didn't get as much as attention as J.Banks but performed just as good. He ended the year with 5 ints with 12+ plus pass break ups. Had a Helluva Combine and played well against big SEC teams. He's was also the fastest(4.3) corner at the combine and also has some size at 6'0. Also Panthers will probably release Gamble for more cap room so CB will be a big need.
4.D.j Swearinger-Play maker at Free Safety. Can HIT HARD and BALL HAWK at the same time. Avg combine so should be here but, he has always been underrated anyways. Panthers need a safety in the worse way to help with the run and pass. LOVE this guy because he is very feisty and is always around the ball. Also you need a guy like this with Brees and Ryan in the division.
5.Kieth Pough- Small school linebacker that will be a steal. Great leadership and makes the sure tackle. Has good size,speed for a linebacker and turned in solid combine. Panthers need help at OLB, watch Bucs and Giants game if you don't agree. Also Beason might not be here. Both OLBs are aging and they have an injury history too. Would be a nice edition with Luke to help stop Panthers from getting run over by rookie running backs.
5.(trade) Chris Gragg-Should be a 2nd rounder but got hurt. Had the best combine(lead in most drills)out of all the TE. CAN run a 4,46 but officially clocked at 4.50. Another BIG catching TE to help Cam when in trouble. Newton also seemed to like the TE a lot when he had Shockey and also could help Panthers become less stagnant in the red zone. He has potential to A. Gates like he just has to really want it.
6. Omoregi Uzzi- Big OG that has a mean streak in him. Team was top 5 in the Nation in rushing. Would be a solid ugrade at the rg spot. Panthers have to protect Newton and at the same time this will help the erratic rushing game. While it looks like J-Stew and D-will will still be here next year, this move could help them out a lot. Teams that ran the option well all had good o-line men who could open up holes. Also a 6th round pick, Alfred Morris, ran wild because he had a good o-line.
6(comp).Quanterus Smith-An unknown diamond in the ruff. Q.Smith is a DE that plays at a small school but, he has a lot of upside to be a big time DE in the NFL. Before he got injured he had 12.5 sacks(could have had 16+). His highlight is against Alabama where he beat D.j Fluker for 2 sacks and ended the day with 3 total. Gettleman comes from a pass rushing philosophy so this would be the perfect pick. Disrupting the Qb is the most important aspect of the defense and that's what Smith does. He has been compared to Bruce Irvin, a rookie DE on the Seahawks, who stacked up 8 sacks last year.

Free Agents to Aquire
In college at left tackle he gave up a sack every every 130 snaps. Also blocked for Matt Ryan who threw for 4,501 with 31 tds. Matt had 654 attempts.
Ranked as the 2nd highest right tackle on profootballfocus with a 20+ grade. only allowed 5 sacks this year with a 727 pass attempts. Matt Stafford had a monster year with 4,967 yards and Calvin Johnson broke Rice's record. He is a Right Tackle but is Known as a better pass blocker but, not as good against the run. So he MIGHT fit better as a left tackle and also is not well known so should come at a reasonable price.
While playing right tackle on every 145 snaps he gives up a sack vs while gross gives up a sack every 80 snaps.
In college at left tackle he gave up a sack every every 130 snaps as a LEFT TACKLE. Also blocked for Matt Ryan who threw for 4,501 with 31 tds. Matt had 654 attempts. He only gave up 5 sacks.
just like he made the switch from lt to rt i think he could make the switch vice versa. Brandon Albert made the switch from college guard to lt in the nfl and has played fine. so its not the first time something like this has been experimented with.
He has exp at Left Tackle in college and has exp as RT in the NFL so I think he could make the switch and be a upgrade in the Left tackle department. Now that he has learned from the right side and had his best year of career last year. He is also still young...around 26.
IF THIS EXPERIMENT TURNED OUT GOOD, I WOULD MOVE GROSS TO LEFT GUARD.
Some video of him going against Michael Bennet Who had 9 sacks this year...he did well. Also footage of him in college protecting Matt Ryan.
Remember I'm not expecting you to agree with me because this is an experiment but just see for yourself. and give me feedback.
gosder vs michael bennet
gosder protecting matt ryan vs GT
Blocked for AP who had a record year with over 2000 yards rushing also only gave up 3 sacks. Still young and should come at reasonable price.Also ranked as one of the best right tackles by profootballfocus. Would be way better than Bell who gave up 8 sacks and was AVG on running plays.
A corner with size who makes heads up plays. Has some exp and shouldn't be that expensive . Also ranked high by profootballfocus. Panthers could use someone like this to compete with the other group of corners because their is no real definite starter out them.
4. Phil Dawson
Experienced kicker who makes almost all his field goals no matter the distance. he was ranked as the best kicker on profootballfocus and should come cheap. He was 29 out 31 in field goals made.
He hit 13 field goals from 40-50 yards. 6 being in the 40 range and 7 being in the 50 range.
Now on to UDFA. Just players with potenial that I thnik could be solid starters or most likely be solid back ups for depth.
UNDRAFTED FREE AGENTS TO AQUIRE
1.Chad Bumphis- slot wr/kick returner
2.Greg Reid- slot corner/punt returner
3.Dexter Mccoil- free safety
4.Aj Francis- defensive tackle
5.Patrick Lewis- Center
6.Colby Cameron - QuarterBack (depends if Derek come back.)
