Carolina Panthers 2014 Mock Off-season
Ted Ginn Jr.
Greg Hardy: PAY THAT MAN!!!
Ted Ginn Jr.
Charles Godfrey FS (cap casualty)
DeAngelo Williams RB (cap casualty)
Hakeem Nicks WR, NYG
It just makes too much sense. WR is probably the biggest need on this team. I dont believe that we'll be in a position to draft a Marqise Lee or Sammy Watkins (Top10) or at least I'm hoping so. I would like to go with Mike Evans in the draft, but Cam needs some proven veteran receivers to work with. I don't want Cam to be trap having to work with a rookie receiver next year.
2014 Mock Draft
(1st) Jason Verrett CB, TCU, 5’10” 178lbs
Verrett is my favorite cornerback in this class and could easily leap over Bradley Roby as the projected no1 CB. The Senior CB almost quit playing football after RG3 picked him apart in his first game as a junior college transfer two years ago. Since then, Verrett have quickly positioned himself as a future potential 1st round pick. Verrett is a hard-hitting tackler, has great play recognition, closing speed, and tremendous ball skills (6 career INTs). Probably the best cover corner in this class, but also an asset in the run defense. Though, Verrett lacks the ideal size that NFL Scouts likes.
Captain, Florence, and Moore will probably all be gone after this season. The CB position is already and will be depleted next year. CB needs to be address! I dont see Gman taking the FA route to answer this question, so Verrett in the 1st would give us a lot of life at that position next year especially playing in the NFCS.
(2nd) Seantrel Henderson OT, Miami, 6’7” 342lbs
(RT #77 vs. Werner/Carradine)
A huge "steal" if we are able to land Henderson in the 2nd round of next year draft. This kid is massive and scouts/gms are going to love his upside once the draft comes. The former five star high school recruit out of Minnesota have somewhat disappointed in the college level. But, Henderson have appeared to show glances of promise to why he was such a highly coveted player with more comfortability. If Henderson can concentrate on football, he can become a very damn good NFL Tackle. Henderson could step in right away in replacement of Bell and be groom to take over Gross at the LT position.
(3rd) David Yankey OG/OT, Stanford, 6’5” 311lbs
An outstanding blocker at Stanford, Yankey has very good size, agility, balance, and toughness. Yankey can play inside or outside, but scouts feel that he is best suited at LG; currently playing LG. Maybe a possibility of moving Amini to RG. Our O-line would instantly be upgraded with the additions of Yankey and Henderson. The protection for Cam will be solidify for years to come.
(4th) DeVante Parker WR, Louisville, 6’2” 209lbs
Any receivers not named Steve Smith will be a free agent. Ted Ginn should more than likely be retain due to his ST ability and production at receiver so far. DeVante Parker is already out to a fast start at Louisville. The 6'2'' receiver is a big play vertical threat and possess soft hands. He could potentially be taken higher than the 4th round.
(6th) OLB / RB
(7th) SF (Colin Jones trade)
