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.

Solid draft. Not flashy, but solid nonetheless.

Don't like it at all. This years draft will be failure for Panthers if we don't draft a DT in either of 1st 2 rounds.

I think we draft either Kawaan Short or John Jenkins in the 2nd round.

And we will go WR in the 1st.

Take that to the bank.

It depends on bpa at either position. I wouldn't cancel a secondary player out either.

Only DT we would take at 14 is Star and he wont be there.

So we will pick Allen imo

Then Short or Jenkins in the 2nd.

Its possible we could take a CB (someone like Taylor) but im pretty sure we will sure up the lines esp if we go WR in the 1st.

Short is to good of a player to pass up at UT when you only have a vet stop gap starting.

I just think there are too many with a funneled perspective.

All these definitive statements about something that is the furthest thing from definitive.

There are a ton of possibilities with our 1st rounder and what people determine a reach or whatever from a accumulative media rankings perspective is not the same as with what the respective teams are thinking.

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

Round 1: [b]Jonathan Cyprien[/b] 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 [u]hard[/u] 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: [b]Quinton Patton [/b]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: [b]Brian Winters [/b]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: [b]Kwame Geathers [/b]NT Georgia



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



Round 6: [b]Sanders Commings[/b] 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.

yes I would be insanely happy with this mock draft. I agree with Cyprien I really think he might be our pick at 14 unless a huge name falls

I also would be very happy with we could get Commings in the 6th

If Star or Lane are sitting there, I'd go for them without a doubt but beyond that, Cyprien is my favorite for us at the moment running slightly ahead of the top WRs. I think Austin is gone and I don't really want Patterson. Deciding between the likes of Nuke, Hunter, and Allen is pretty tough and imo if Cyprien was out of a top school would be a given top-20 pick.

I guess we will have to wait and see who was right.

1st - WR (Allen, Patterson, Austin, assuming no trade back)
2nd - DT (J.Williams, S. Williams, Short, Jenkins with CB a darkhorse possibility Taylor, Slay)
