Mock Draft (22 Days to go...)

37 posts in this topic

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

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

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

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

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

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.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
