Campbell is a good early mocker, at least in addressing the Panthers' needs. All his mocks have been semi-ideal where guys are ranked today... Which if you follow the draft means NOTHING. Guys projected in the 3-4th with be in the first bc of 40 times and guys in the first will drop bc of 40 ties and short arms etc.
I hope for the draft that Chuck posted below but this is a really talented that is deep in the positions we need this season.
If Dennard, Ebron, Lee, Cryus Kojuando(sp?) is there at 28 you take them without looking back as they are elite talents at positions of need.
I agree this would be an ideal first three picks.
Charlie's New Mock: January 10, 2014
(1) Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
(2) Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt
(3) Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!!! I'd really cry (joy) if we came out of the draft like this.
As of today Campell has us taking
(1) Ot/G, Zach Martin
(2) WR, Jordan Matthews
(3) WR, Paul Richardson Doubt we double up at WR in the draft.
With the guys availible in Campbell's mock today id go with addressing playmakers high. Zach Martin is supposed to be a guard and struggles with speed rushers on the outside. I think in the first you would want a more polished RT.
If using the Giants draft philosophy they draft playmakers early(if the hogmollies are in place) and use 3rd round picks on to fill OL.
(1) TE Austin Sef-Jenkins or TE Jace Amaro
Campbell has Atl drafting Jenkins in the second and that would suck to see the Falcons replace TGonz so easily with a proven playmaker with special WR skill. I think having a large target for Cam would open up third down like when Shockey was here and creates matchups on the outside for a Smitty or Ginn. Having linebackers on Olsen and Jenkins would really help move the chains even better not to mention a potentally elite red zone guy who is compared repeatedly to a Gronk or Jimmy Graham type guy.
Olsen seemed gimpy the last 7 weeks of the season with his foot injury and if we had to lose Olsen for any amout of time imagine how the passing game would have been .
(2) WR Jordan Matthews Vandy
Smart WR with great size and route running ability. Makes tough catches and excelled agaist tough SEC defenses. Duplicated his success from 2012-2013 which means he was gameplanned for extensively.
(3)CB Jason Verrett TCU or OT/G from SC
I have not watched Verrett but according to most every scouting mock thing, he has elite ball skills, speed and technique but is a bit undersized. With Munnerlyn looking for a long term deal we might be looking to replace our nickel position which was a strength this past season.
