Almost there folks. I'm considering who we're bringing in so far for workouts and our FA moves.

Round 1: Jonathan Cyprien SS Florida International

Posted Image

I'm not joking. I think this is the guy. A tenacious leader, agressive but has balance, is a true SS and Godfrey as we've been told is our FS. I don't think he's a reach and for some reason, I think our staff is ok with the d-line minus finding a big NT either in the FA or later on in the draft. We knew they were looking at Barron hard last year. This would be smart and by no means a reach. (25 of 32 teams were present at his pro-day and scouts are apparently really pumped about this kid)



Round 2: Quinton Patton WR Louisiana Tech

Posted Image

Beyond his great numbers, he is smooth, well rounded, surest hands in the draft, and a leader (I'm considering intangibles) There are 4 wideouts that I have in mind in 1-2: Nuke, Patton, Wheaton, & Bailey. Patton would be my preference over Bailey and Wheaton and I think Hunter will be gone by 44.



Round 4: Brian Winters RG Kent State

Posted Image

A great guard I hope we can land. This is the most stacked position in the draft and its not known for being drafted high. He would be a great addition if we don't get someone through the FA.


Round 5: Kwame Geathers NT Georgia

Posted Image

Land a nose tackle to fill out the line alongside Dwan and will hopefully find a decent FA addition.



Round 6: Sanders Commings CB Georgia

Posted Image

We've seen him twice so far and is a 6'0 CB. We made some good additions but need some height and athleticism in our secondary.

I like this a good bit, and honestly it makes sense from what I have been reading/hearing. I just hope we sign another vet DT cause i don't like taking one in the 5th.

That's what I'm thinking here.

I really was hoping we could have gotten Isaac Sopoaga but there are some more out there.

Seattle signed McDaniel instead of re-signing Alan Branch...and Shaun Cody is also available at NT. Both would be decent options. Also, I think we'll add another OL in the mix via FA before all is said and done.

Roster:

QB
Cam Newton
Derek Anderson

RB
Jonathan Stewart
DeAngelo Williams
Armond Smith

FB
Mike Tolbert

WR
Steve Smith
Brandon LaFell
Quinton Patton**
Domenik Hixon*
Ted Ginn Jr*

TE
Greg Olsen
FA or UDFA
Ben Hartstock

OL: Gross-Amini-Kalil-Winters**-Bell

(Still want a FA addition on the OL)

_________

DL: CJ-Dwan-Branch*-Hardy

(And I actually really like our backups in Alexander, Keiser, Geathers**, Kearse, Chandler, & Addison)

LB: Beason-Kuechly-Davis (Onatolu-Blackburn-Williams)

CB
Josh Thomas
Captain Munnerlynn
DJ Moore*
Sanders Commings**
Drayton Florence*
Josh Norman

SS
Jonathan Cyprien**
DJ Campbell

FS
Charles Godfrey
Mike Mitchell/Colin Jones

This is a great mock and very reasonable based on needs and who've we visited with.

Well done, no complaints from me.

Nice! I'm glad we're finally talking about Cyprien. Man, there are some scouts who LOVE this guy. Well rounded safety. I rather have this guy than Vacarro, that's for sure.

I totally agree. I think if Cyprien came out of the SEC or PAC12, he would have been touted on the level of Barron honestly. A lot of the pro scouts are beginning to gush over Cyprien.

And I do agree about picking him over Vacarro at FS.

I think he's the best SS in the draft

I don't like that you waited till the 5th round to help a screaming need.

No more screaming than RG, WR, or SS in my opinion. Plus the supporting crew on the d-line is very good in Dwan, Hardy, & Johnson with solid backups in Alexander, Keiser, Kearse, & Chandler. We get pressure and need a big guy in there. Plus like I said that's a FA move still coming imo.

But that move could be at WR. Still I love how experts can see that DT has been a problem for years but some in the fan base can't see it.
If WR is a big need then DT is a just as big or bigger need.

We see it. That's why I said it would be a FA move and a later round draft pick.

You missed the important part of the equation. Our scouts don't seem to think its as pressing need as others. Look at last year. We were very quiet on that front after previously drafting 2 DTs in R3 the year prior. There were a lot of Cox aficionados but their interweb voices really overshadowed the team's rather mild interest in him. We found out we were looking at Barron, Kuechly, & Coples the most.

Is there a particular reason why you think getting a DT in rounds 1-2 in the 2013 draft is crucial when we have numerous holes to fill? I'm pretty open and would consider Star, Brandon Williams, John Jenkins, & Kwame but that's about it for me if we're looking at the prospects and not so much where we are and the expected players to be available when we pick.

DT has been a need for a long time and like The FO said protecting Keek is important. We also have used a few High picks on WR as well.
