Stirs 2nd of 3 Drafts

9 posts in this topic

Yes, I think it is in our best interest to trade down. We only have 5 picks.

You always have to have a partner for such a trade and they have to have a need.

SF needs nothing currently and has a boatload of picks. So, they start looking at next seasons defectors. DE Justin Smith will be going into his last season.

DT Richardson is a perfect fit for them. Why should they waste a bunch of later picks when they are more certain to see his replacement sitting at 14 with NO picking next. So here goes.

Carolina trades down to pick #31 and gets #61 and #74 in the trade.

#31 DT Jesse Williams

#44 CB Jamar Taylor

#61 OT Terron Armstead/Kyle Long

#74 OG Brian Winters

#108 WR Aaron Dobson

#148 SS Duke Williams

#182 HBk Chris Gragg

Last mock coming just a day before the actual draft

Like long better than armstead, but long is a better guard

Not trying to argue, but most everyone still has Long as an OT, except maybe Scott Wright. Love to see the Guard information. If so, scratch him, but I think he is very quick off the ball and only a year away from being able to start.

He played a lot of guard at Oregon but also played tackle. He's definitely athletic enough to play OT in the pros but some teams like him better at OG. His versatility and bloodlines are what make him very desirable to NFL teams.

25 Days later, I think I will stick with this one for my final mock also, especially with the reports of late.

I think if Star is there, the Panthers might stand, but other than that, dropping would be best route.

Man I love this scenario! I think we can make a better pick with the #44...but I like this scenario! I don't think it's completely crazy to think that we'll get that #31 and #34 in return for #14. The draft pick value chart is pretty close with these, although the chart is outdated since the new CBA. #14 is worth 1100....#31 + #34 = 1160.....#31 + #61 + #74 = 1117. Make it happen Gettleman!

But props to see this as a potential trade down situation a month ago

We won't trade down unless Austin and Lotuleilei both come off the board IMO. There are a lot of teams ahead of us that want offensive talent so I think Austin will be gone. But I'm starting to think if Lotuleilei gets past the Titans we have a good shot at him. Hoping that is what happens. We need a couple of impact players...I don't see Williams being that for us.

    • Yeah.... a single person of a religion encompassing over a billion people on the planet.  I don't see social media blowing up with the Muslim community in the western part of the world denouncing these attacks.  When Dillon Roof happened, there were a lot of Christians that denounced him immediately and repeatedly.  The point is that effective change for this extremism must come from within those communities.   The tide is turning, but people within those communities still feel fear of reprisal from within their culture for saying anything that could be construed as aligning with anti-Muslim stances.  Those dangers shouldn't be summarily dismissed for those that are brave enough to take this stand. I also stated that the media needs to do their part in accurately portraying these denouncements.  What I see instead is the media propping up ridiculous caricatures of people rather than your average person.  
    • The drive killing penalties he gets, lazy route running, and drops offset his potential upside. He is better suited as a tight end in this league
    • ..... the Panthers will usually tweet the most flattering videos.   (Pours gas on fire)
