Restructure:

Charles Johnson(DE)-  $16,000,000 cap number is ridiculous  

Steve Smith(WR)- Hopefully he's all in for a Super Bowl run 

 

Release:

Charles Godfrey(FS)- He's an afterthought now

Chase Blackburn(OLB)- Klein and Senn replace him easily

Dwan Edwards(DT)- Hopefully not, but Hurney put us in a bad spot

 

This puts us at approximately $25,000,000 for cap space

 

Resign-

Jordan Gross(LT)- Utmost importance, best player on the line... 2 years, $10,000,000

Greg Hardy(DE)- Only if he settles on a reasonable price, if not let him walk... 4 years, $32,000,000 (Contract must be back-loaded, $5,000,000 cap hit)

Mike Mitchell(FS)- Again only resign if reasonable, no need to overpay... 4 years, $15,000,000 (Contract must be back-loaded, $2,500,000 cap hit)

Drayton Florence(CB)- Good veteran, like a coach on the field... 2 years, $2,000,000 

Colin Cole(DT)- Good depth, built like a brick-house, great against the run... 1 year, $1,000,000

Graham Gano(K)- Good teams always have a good kicker... 3 years, $4,500,000

Ben Hartsock(TE)- Very undervalued and under appreciated player, phenomenal blocker... 2 years, $2,000,000

Richie Brockel(FB)- Same as Hartsock, as long as we run the power running offense these blockers are very valuable... 2 years, $1,500,000

 

Cap from resignings- $17,750,000

Remaining Cap- $7,250,000

 

Sign drafted rookies and then see what else is available in the free agent market.

 

Free Agency- Don't expect much here

Jared Allen(DE)- This is only possible if we let Hardy walk, which is a good possibility because he wants to much. Allen is a good veteran who attacks the LT and is in the twilight of his career and he wants a taste of success, which we can give him. Preferred route to bringing back Peppers... 2 years, $8,000,000*

 

*If we do go this route, we will have extra money to spend on resigning our free agents. So this opens up the possibility of bringing back Ginn, Lafell, Captain. Also we could let Hardy walk and use the rotation of Addison, Alexander, and Horton to compliment CJ. If this route is taken we can resign almost all of our free agents, and it wouldn't be a big surprise because of the cap hell we are in.

 

Draft- This will be the main way to improve our team, because we are not blessed with much cap flexibility. So hitting on these picks has to be done.

1st round- Allen Robinson(WR-Penn State)

I'm a bit skewed as a Penn State fan, but it's a toss up between him and Jordan Matthews from Vanderbilt. I believe Robinson has a much higher upside, but Matthews is more NFL ready.

 

2nd round- James Hurst(OT-North Carolina)

Local product who had a good game against Clowney. Can develop him on the right side, while Gross is still here.

 

3rd round- Deion Blue (CB-Alabama)

Alabama corners are very disciplined and that is something I love. He is not the most physically talented, but I think he could flourish in our zone blitz concept.

 

4th round- Devante Parker(WR- Louisville)

He compares favorably to Lafell, benefits from being in a pro system at Louisville. Also he has Teddy throwing to him, so adjusting to Cam shouldn't be much of a jump.

 

5th round- JaWuan James(OT-Tennessee)

Big body guy with alot of upside. Plays on the same team as Antonio "Tiny" Richardson so hopefully he picked up things. James has the talent to be a starting RT, but has to sure up the fundamentals.

 

6th round- Keith McGill(CB-Utah)

Big for a corner, measuring in at 6'2 so I'm willing to take a flier on the man from Utah. Also with our past successes from Utah, which includes Steve Smith, Jordan Gross, and Star.

 

7th round-Bryn Renner(QB-North Carolina)

Local QB who can hopefully step in and replace Derek Anderson. Jerry Richardson loves bringing in local products.

 

7th round-Chaz Sutton(DE-South Carolina)

The last time we took a late round flier on a DE from the SEC, we ended up with Greg Hardy. Cross your fingers and pray for the best.

 

Starting Offense:                                                                Starting Defense

Is it sad that I like your draft better than my own. If you ever want your mock posted for you, just message me and I'll post it for you.

I think that'll be my only mock draft while the season is still in play and hopefully I will be allowed to post by seasons end. But if not, I would graciously accept your offer. I'm not huge on in season mocks, but I wanted to see the status of our team because I had alot of uncertainty of what the team will look like next season.

 

Also this is something I love to do, so I can throw endless time at it and not feel bad about it. Your mock was very good and I would be so excited if your 1st pick was right, meaning mine was wrong. My dream pick is Mike Evans, but from everything I'm seeing he'll be long gone by the time we pick. Thank you again.

no way do we get gano that cheap, we gave that poo kicker a few years ago 4 million a year. It could be argued gano is the best kicker in the league.

I didn't research kicker contracts before I wrote the comment, but I believe I meant 2 years with $4,500,000... That is pretty good money for an unproven kicker, he doesn't deserve the money that Gostkowski or Janikowski get which is around $3,000,000-$3,500,000 per year

That was also a terrible hurney contract that gettleman wont do. I think the afformentioned offer would be perfectly fair

I think Mike Mitchell is becoming one of the guys that, if we do have to overpay, then we should. He's become the soul of the defense. Sure, everyone thinks that TD is, and TD is a great story and an inspiration. But, this team never played with this attitude until he stepped on the field and started lighting dudes up.

 

(Side note: We all know Kuechly is the brains of the defense.)
