#3306007 Per league sources, NFL Draft has 16-19 top players; "20th pick same as 5...

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 30 March 2015 - 07:22 PM

I honestly think this is a weak top end draft, not just after 20 or so picks. There might be 4 top 10 worthy players and the rest are either mid to late 1st rounders in any other draft. On the positive, I feel like the value is in the 2nd round talent that I think can extend into the 3rd.

 

  • No legit top 10 LT, most are either tweener OG prospects or RT's.
  • No legit top tier WR such as Calvin Johnson, AJ Green or Larry Fitzgerald, mostly second tier but the depth is stout in this years draft.
  • Both QB's have major question marks about off the field for Winston and ability for Mariota, guys like Petty, Hundley and Grayson have the chance of moving into the 1st if a team trades up.
  • Outside of Vic Beasley, Danny Shelton and Leonard Williams I think the defenders leave a lot to be desired. Fowler is overrated, Gregory would've dropped even without the drug test, Ray is a bust waiting to happen as a 3-4 OLB, Dupree is arguably better than all of them and I think he'll go higher than most are projecting. 
  • No 1st round TE.
  • RB is strong this year but the best RB is coming off an ACL, easily the strongest group alongside WR.
  • Minus Trae Waynes, I'd give all the CB's a late 1st or later grade.
  • Landon Collins is great but any other year he'd go in the 20-32 range with no other safety going in the 1st.
  • The best LB Paul Dawson is a major character concern and the others are top of the 2nd prospects.

Wonder if he'll sign up as itskonyealy




#3305667 JAC RB Jordan Todman signed

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 30 March 2015 - 02:23 PM

Meh, I'd rather us have signed Murray, traded for McCoy and Peterson and then draft Gurley and Gordon. Too bad Getts doesn't know what he's doing.




#3304602 If it came down to Peat or Perriman....

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 29 March 2015 - 05:40 PM

I agree.

I think Peat's size is way too good. Also think he's the safest OT to take. It'll be between Peat and Scherff. But I just can't see Peat being there at 25. Not sure what happened from then till now but most places I've looked have him being there at 25.

I think Collins is a better bet to be there at 25. The only reason why Collins is being hyped up more than he should is bc of Zach Martin.

 

I think it's ridiculous people have Peat going so low, there's no OT in this draft without a major question mark next to his name.

 

  • Peat is raw, he has size, health and arm length on his side but has some bad games against other draft prospects. 
  • Humphries is being rated too highly but it wouldn't surprise me if he went in the 1st, he's just so inconsistent when you watch his tape and seems to struggle maintaining body weight. 
  • Scherff to me is too hard to judge, he has smaller arms than Joel Bitonio who I loved last year, but is projected by many to be the first OT off the board even though I see him as a mid to late first rounder.
  • I think that while Collins possesses the same arm length as Scherff, he more than makes up for it with athleticism. Both he and Scherff are OG or RT prospects with me giving an edge to Collins having the potential to be an NFL LT. 
  • TJ Clemmings is too raw to project in the 1st, I see him as 2nd round, possibly available at our 2nd round pick. He's just too inexperienced to take a risk on in the first considering he's only played a couple years and only at RT.
  • Fisher has the size for being an LT but doesn't have a ton of experience as the blind side protector but was forced into the role last year, I think he's first round quality but I'd do back flips if he's available for us in the 2nd.
  • Cedric Ogbuehi had a rough year at LT and was honestly just a meh RT. Throw in he's recovering from ACL surgery and I'd only take him in the 3rd, but with the moves Gettleman has made we'd be able to bring him along slowly and train him into the position. 

Basically, no OT in this draft is a sure thing. Considering how "sure thing" OT's have been fairing lately (Matthews, Joeckel, Fisher, Kalil) I'd stay away from OT in the first unless Gettleman does his due diligence and feels good about the pick. I think it's much more likely we grab an OT rounds 2-7 but if Peat was available at #25 I'd draft him based solely on the fact he'd be BPA.




#3303504 Riverboat Ron's Draftacular

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 28 March 2015 - 11:09 AM

Round 1 (25)- Randy Gregory DE / Nebraska

 

I typically stay away from players who fail a drug test before the biggest pay day of your life, I mean how stupid can you be to smoke it up in a situation that could cost you millions of dollars. That being said, Gregory has the frame to grow into an elite 4-3 pass rusher and in my opinion has the highest ceiling of any DE in the draft. It wouldn't surprise me if he still goes before our pick with teams like the Bengals and Saints that couldn't care less what crime you commit, but if he's there at #25 I don't think Gettleman will let 1 second go by before the card has been handed in.

 

 

 

Round 2 (57)- Quinten Rollins CB / Miami of Ohio

 

The Panthers have been looking a lot of CB's during the draft process and if one of BPA value falls to Gettleman in the 2nd I think he'll grab them. Who would expect the Panthers to go defense with their first two picks when we have glaring needs at OT and WR? Rollins has great fluidity and has a very high ceiling even with his limited football experience. Some mocks have him going in the 1st but it wouldn't surprise me if he went mid 2nd with the possibility of dropping to us.

 

 

 

Round 3 (89) - Duke Johnson RB / Miami

 

Running backs typically fall a bit in the draft so Johnson being available in the 3rd wouldn't be that big of a surprise. Duke wouldn't instantly give the Panthers a shifty play maker at RB and give Cam a weapon to check down to on occasion. 

 

Round 3 (late) - Cedric Ogbuehi OT / Texas A&M (Trade 4th and 5th round pick)

 

With the current plethora of free agency moves by Gettleman I'm starting to believe that he'll only draft an OT in the 1st if it's the exact OT he wants. It's clear that Gettleman doesn't want to reach for an OT and will likely look for a later round prospect to train up into the position. Ogbuehi makes a lot of sense considering his recovery from ACL surgery might keep him from playing early but with the move Gettleman has made, we could bring Ogbuehi along slowly and eventually get great value out of the pick. 

 

 

 

Round 5 (169)- Clayton Geathers SS / UCF

 

A big safety prospect with great athleticism. Will have to be worked into the roster but could potentially take over the starting job from Harper after several games.

 

 

 

Round 5 (174)- Ty Montgomery WR / Stanford

 

A bit of a project and mostly a one trick pony with straight line speed, could be developed into our future kick returner and future replacement of Ginn.

 

 

Round 6 (201)- Christian Covington DT/ Rice

 

I really like Covington, talent wise he should be a 3-4 round pick in my opinion but health concerns might drop him into the 6th round. Covington reminds me of Dwan Edwards and would be a good developmental DT to give us some young depth.

 

 

Round 7 (243)- Justin Coleman CB / Tennessee

 

Good depth addition, played well at nickel at Tenn and would be an immediate special teams contributor.

#3301630 Mocking the Fifth

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 27 March 2015 - 09:14 AM

Sorry, but all those players will be gone by the 5th.

 

 

 

 

And before you change it, all the players you were thinking of to replace them with will be gone, nobody will be available in the 5th. 

 

 

So now you're thinking, I'll just make up some names and mock them to us in the 5th, nope, they'll be gone too.




#3300756 Rivera confirms Panthers will be drafting a RB

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 26 March 2015 - 03:37 PM

I really like Telvin Coleman and Jay Ajayi as 2nd and later running backs, that being said if Getts likes Gordon or Gurley enough to take them at #25 I won't argue with him.

#3300582 Randy Gregory fails combine drug test

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 26 March 2015 - 01:30 PM

Gettleman is a sociopath puppet master. I bet Getts was slipping edibles to Gregory during his workout in his grand plan of causing him to fall to us just like last year with the story of KB skipping a meeting and a false medical report on Stah.
