If we stand pat at 28, the we are most likely looking at the top 4 OT's being gone (Robinson, Matthews, Lewan and Martin) and possibly the top 5 or 6  WR's being gone (Watkins, Evans, Lee, OBJ, Cooks Benjamin) so, J Matthews might be all that is left at that point.

 

Pretty solid draft other than that although I think the 6th rounder is a waste

I would love the first 5 picks in this draft, could do without the last two. Not sure Bitonio will be there in the 3rd but Ahmad Dixon is a guy I am enamored with.  If he learns to control himself and not commit stupid penalties he could be our answer at SS. Just a hard-nosed physical player that lays guys out and is excellent at wrapping up too. I think he'd be a great fit. I'd compare him to Donte Whitner

Solid mock, the only thing I would change is pick #6.  We really need to pick up a QB and start prepping a solid #2 if something would happen to Cam.

I'd take it and I'm not all that worried about a back up QB. DA knows the system, Cam trusts him and he knows his role here. As long as he remains cheap I'm content to keep him around.

not a fan because of the rd or the talent? I think Matthews is a nice pick.

Connor Shaw would be a good pick in 6th.

Don't like him in the first, Id be ok with it in the second round, I like Robinson better

    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles. Then Big Al had 42 in 2013. Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.
