Icege's Post-Combine Draft

1. Star Lotululei, DT, Utah
Assuming he drops this far and medically checks out, of course. Carolina's current depth at NT after the release of Ron Edwards is Frank Kearse and Sione Fua. With Dwan Edwards likely to be retained and Carolina's BPA approach, Star makes sense. Some teams might be frightened away by a potential heart issue, but Frank Alexander fell to the team in the same manner. Getting a big body for the long term to keep Kuechly and company clean will go a long way in helping a defense that's starting to look more like what we're accustomed to in Carolina.

2. DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson
Gettleman and Rivera have both mentioned the need for playmakers and DeAndre Hopkins was THE playmaker at Clemson despite hype for Sammy Watkins. Steve Smith can only defy time for so long and LaFell is at best a #2. Some have said the same about Hopkins, but if he's available at #46 the Panthers have to take him.

4. D.J. Swearinger, FS, South Carolina
Free Safety is ass. DJ Swearinger is not. Let's make our free safety position less terrible.

5. Xavier Nixon, OT, Florida State
O-line depth as well as value.

6. Sanders Commings, DB, Georgia
Can play safety as well!

6. Marquess Wilson, Washington State
Wilson is at his best in jump ball situations where he's using his length to ****** the ball out of the air. With Cam's habit of sailing balls high as well as the team's emphasis on the deep pass, Wilson fits the scheme. He's a talented WR that fell after quitting Washington State and accusing Mike Leach of abuse. Spending a compensatory pick towards the end of the 6th round on a WR that early on was being mocked in the first 3 rounds is quite a steal.

6. Jeff Baca, G, UCLA
Moar o-line depth

Nixon went to Florida. No to taking two WR's because we will sign a free agent WR whether it be Ramses Barden or someone else. Other than that I like it.

Probably the only decent mock I've seen on these boards.

Lotuleileis the only highly rated DT I trust, Hopkins is a 1st round talent who could very possibly be there in the 2nd, and you add decent prospects at positions of dire need throughout the rest of the draft. Use FA to solidify the OL and this draft and I'd be okay for next season.

If Star checks out medically he wont be there. So I see no way for that to be a possibility.

I like Hopkins. Not a fan of short DBs

Short DBs as in a potential draft target? I ask because Sanders Commings is 6'2" 220lbs.

Love this draft, definitley need 2 starters in those first 2 rounds. Hopkins is what helped Clemson upset LSU, he was a playmaker. Would love to have the kick, and his great nickname, probably my second favorite WR behind Patterson. If Star is there, I'm okay on passing on Patterson.

Best looking draft that I've seen, and would go to bed a happy camper if it happened. I am apprehensive that either of the first two picks are there when we pick though unfortunately. If Star doesn't check out, I doubt we would select him, and if he does check out positively, then I think he goes top-10. Honestly, Hopkins is quickly becoming my favorite WR in this draft. 6'1'' but built strong-tough, one of the highest verticals, great route runner, committed run blocker and is more game fast than clocked fast. I think if he puts in an above average pro day, he goes in the mid-late 20's.... Minnesota, New England, SF. Again, I really like this mock if it were to come to fruition.... kudos to you sir.

I'd love this draft, but it isn't going to happen. Star's somewhat realistic, but odds are that if his heart condition isn't actually a problem, teams will become aware of this and he'll return to his previous ranking. Not a chance DeAndre Hopkins lasts that long barring an injury or arrest. Marquess Wilson has natural talent, but some very serious personal issues that could easily cause locker room problems, so although that late I wouldn't hate it, I'd prefer if he never wore our jersey.
