Frank Hollywood's 2.1 Mock draft: Post Combine

01 March 2015 - 06:37 PM

It's the offseason, the forum is a bit slow so I believe it's ok to post my mock here. If I'm wrong, mods please delete.

(Note: I switched rounds 4 and 5 from the version I posted previously as I believe this scenario is more realistic, hence 2.1)

 

My previous mock can be found here:http://www.carolinah...ft-pre-combine/

 

With the combine now behind us, player's stock begin to take a lot more shape as we come closer to the 2015 draft. Here is my latest version. As always, comments and criticism welcome. Thanks for reading!

 

Round 1:

Previous Pick: Dorial Green-Beckham

New Pick: Jaelen Strong WR Arizona State

ncf_g_jaelenstrong_ms_400x600.jpg

 

While DGB is a freak athlete, Gettlemen specifically mentioned we don’t need headache players on our team. Being caught with an entire pound of marijuana is too much for our organization to pull the trigger on the guy.

Strong on the other hand impressed at the combine. He’s got great hands and isn’t afraid to fight for the ball. Him alongside Kelvin Benjamin along with a speedster taken later in the draft make our WR corps something defenses will fear.

 

 

Round 2:

Previous Pick: Justin Hardy

New Pick: Jake Fisher T Oregon

hi-res-153206706_crop_north.jpg?w=630&h=

 

I still like Justin Hardy. A lot. But if we select Strong with our first pick we should heavily consider Jake Fisher.

While he needs some polish, Fisher would almost certainly be the top tackle left on the board and has shown worthy of being a late second round pick.

 

Round 3:

Previous Pick: Jake Fisher

New Pick: Phillip Dorsett WR Miami

957%20umfoot101214%20UM%20Cincinnati%20A

Jake Fisher won’t be available by the time we pick here. Another prospect might be.

Dorsett impressed with his speed at the combine, running a WR best 4.33 in the 40 and also the best 3 cone of any WR.  His size will hurt his draft stock (5'9 175 pounds) and I haven’t seen much else other than elite speed from him. While many analysts are high on him and see him as a second to early third rounder, he could realistically fall to us and help us to take the top off of defenses, stretch the field and possibly be an elite return man for our team for years to come.

 

Round 4:

Previous Pick: Eric Murray, CB

New Pick:Nick O’leary TE

This isn’t a great draft for TE prospects, however, we could still get another value pick due to a poor combine showing. Nick O’leary wasn’t impressive during the combine and it may hurt his stock quite a bit. If he were to fall to us in round 4 we should absolutely pull the trigger as he’d be a great compliment to Olsen. Where Brandon Williams and Dickson aren’t getting it done, O’leary could.

 

 

Round 5:

Previous Pick: Terry Williams, DT, East Carolina

New Pick: 

Kevin White CB TCU

Kevin White impressed at the Senior Bowl, but had a poor combine showing. Perhaps this performance will allow him to fall to us in Round 5. His history of doing well covering the nation’s top college WR prospect (see Kevin White vs. Kevin White) warrants this pick.

 

 

 

 

Round 6:

Previous Pick: Tyler Hunter, S, Florida State (also nickel and PR) –SS

New Pick: Jalston Fowler, FB, Alabama

Jalston+Fowler+Georgia+Southern+v+Alabam

 

Jalston Fowler still looks like the best FB in this draft . With Tolbert’s uncertainty, this could be a great pick as Fowler is not only a good blocker, but can pave the way for our running backs of the future.

 

 

Round 6 Compensatory Pick: Tyler Hunter, S, Florida State (also nickel and PR) –SS

ncf_i_tylerhunter_ms_400x600.jpg

 

Roman Harper won’t be around forever (although I’m not complaining) and Tyler Hunter could potentially replace him when he’s gone. This guy also plays nickel and can return punts. Tyler could prove useful to the Panthers in many ways

 

Round 7: Previous Pick: Jake Smith, C, Louisville

New Pick: John Crockett, RB, North Dakota State

rp_primary_John_Crockett_2014_YSU_Stiffa

 

Gettlemen takes a late round RB yet again. Showing good burst and physicality, Crockett is a good pickup in the last round of the draft. Time to show Darrin Reaves the door.

 

Round 7 Compensatory Pick: Brandon Vitabile, C, Northwestern

BrandonVitabileMissState010113.jpg

 

 

Brandon may not be a day one starter, but who at the end of the seventh round is? He’d be a good backup for Kalil and will hopefully replace him as a starter in a few years. He would probably be the best inside offensive lineman on the board this late in the draft.

Soo Slow's 2015 Mock draft: Pre-combine

Carolina Panthers 2015 Mock Draft

 

Credit to Dave Gettlemen, the GM of the Carolina Panthers, who has quietly built a contending team with quality starters in all rounds of the draft as well as free agency. In his first two seasons as GM, he has brought in players through the draft as well as undrafted players who look to be long term starters for the Panthers. Entering 2013, the Panthers had too many holes to count. The offensive line was a mess, the defensive tackle position was abysmal, and the defensive back and wide receiver corps were a complete joke. Knowing that the cap was a complete mess and would be for several years, Gettlemen took on the challenge with full confidence, utilizing his philosophy of taking the best player available through the draft and filling in the rest with free agency. Look ahead after two years and you see he has solidified the defensive tackle position, drafted quality rookie starters in the DB position, as well as helped solidify the offensive line. Still, there are a few holes left to address, and I believe Gettlemen will once again address these needs with great players before and after the draft.

 

 

I don’t think we take a tackle with our first pick. I believe all quality starters at that position will be gone by the time we pick.  When philly brown went down with a shoulder injury and the coaching staff weren’t sure whether Bersin or Hill would take his place, it was obvious that WR is our biggest need. With that being said….

 

Round 1- Dorial Green-Beckham, WR Oklahoma

Standing at 6’6 and drawing comparisons to A.J green, this guy has what it takes to be a true number 1 in the NFL. You wanted a guy to stretch the field? Here he is....In most drafts he is a lock for a top 10 pick, but slides due to some potentially serious red flag behavioral concerns. Unfortunately, they seem to be serious ones and the Panthers would be taking a chance on this guy. It may be worth the risk however, as you can imagine him lining up with Greg Olsen, and Kelvin Benjamin and our next pick.

Round 2- Justin Hardy, WR East Carolina

Yup. Gettlemen double dips again just as he did at the DT position in his first draft. This guy is just too good to pass up at the end of the second round and is personally my favorite player in the draft.. Adding Justin Hardy completes our WR corps and takes what was an extremely weak unit to one of the most dangerous in the league.

Round 3- Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon 

Looking for a potential eventual starter at Left tackle this late in the draft is difficult. However, if there was a guy, it would probably be Jake Fisher, who performed well at Left and Right Tackle. He has the speed, but would need to add strength to take on the NFL’s top pass rushers.

Round 4- Eric Murray, CB, Minnesota

A good corner who isn’t afraid to get physical. He would fit in very nicely with our current cast of defensive backs and provide great depth.

Round 5- Terry Williams, DT, East Carolina

Look up Hog Mollie in the dictionary and you might find a picture of this guy. At 6’1 and just over 350 pounds, he needs a bit of NFL conditioning. However, if it pans out, he could be a 3 down Nose Tackle in the NFL and would be great at spelling Star when Colin Cole (34 years old) hits Free Agency next year.

Round 6- (compensatory pick) - Jalston Fowler, FB, Alabama

This guy is a beast of a blocker and just what we need with Brockel getting older and hitting Free Agency. He may eventually replace Tolbert as the starter in a year or two as he can catch as well.

Round 6- Tyler Hunter, S, Florida State (also nickel and PR) –SS

Roman Harper won’t be around forever (although I’m not complaining) and Tyler Hunter could potentially replace him when he’s gone. This guy also plays nickel and can return punts. Tyler could prove useful to the Panthers in many ways.

Round 7- Jake Smith, C, Louisville

He’s had a few struggles, but overall has looked pretty good as a center who can also play guard. Strong enough to create holes in the NFL, he could be a great project to replace Kalil one day. For now at least, he would be great depth.

Round 7- (Compensatory pick)- Dee Hart, RB, Colorado State

A highly recruited star, he got stuck behind the likes of T.J Yates and Eddie Lacey on the depth chart. I like the Panthers taking a chance on him in the 7th.
