23 May 2014 - 04:47 PM

Any other useful tips on money management, student loans (67,000 in debt, yeesh), etc. are welcome as well. Help this naive grad plz!


Panthers work out free agent OT J'Marcus Webb

15 May 2014 - 06:47 PM

Free agent OT J'Marcus Webb worked out for the Panthers.

Webb visited the Vikings earlier this week, and made a trip to Kansas City in March. Webb appeared in eight games for Minnesota last season, playing 108 snaps. He's looking for work as a swing tackle. Carolina is the most tackle needy team in the league.

I guess we aren't as confident in our depth as we thought.

My Mock (Final Version)

In this scenario we trade down with Cleveland who wants to move up to take their QB. At 28 they will have their pick of Bridgewater, Carr and maybe Bortles.  Whoever they want, they go get.  The Panthers receive the Browns picks in the 2nd and 3rd (numbers 35 and 71) for the 28th pick. Now here is my hope for how these picks get used.

 

2nd Round:  OT Joel Bitonio- He goes later than some think but comes off the board early in round 2. He will play left tackle until he proves he can't.  Even then he would make a tremendous RT or Guard. Low risk, high reward with the big guy.

 

2nd Round:  WR Jarvis Landry- What?! A WR that ran a 4.7?! Yes indeed. Landry will be our flanker and number 2 receiver for a long time and give us great memories of incredible catches and devastating blocks. He will add an edge to the offense and be a clutch red zone receiver and 3rd down guy that won't go down on first contact. Boldin Jr.

 

3rd Round:  WR Paul Richardson- Yessir, double down. Here ladies and gents is our speed receiver. He is a little light in the pants (175 pounds) so he could use a season of being a deep threat guy and adding weight before being our future number 1. Rivera said we may not need a number 1 this year, but that doesn't mean he won't draft a guy that will be in the future. Richardson has blazing speed and incredible ball skills. We keep Cam smiling.

 

3rd Round:  CB EJ Gaines- We finally make a defense pick and I have been pounding the table for this guy for a long time. EJ Gaines is the perfect corner for our system and he is a playmaker. He is fast, aggressive, and a good tackler. 

 

4th Round:  OLB Telvin Smith- He slips to the 4th because of testing positive for marijuana and being somewhat of a tweener.  Like Richardson, Smith will be a rotational guy that will add more mass before taking on a bigger role. He could be a nice replacement for Davis one day if he commits himself to gaining muscle, keeping his nose clean, and learning from our veterans.

 

5th Round:  OT Charles Leno- I don't know why this guy doesn't get more love. He was a rock solid LT for Boise State and will add depth to our offensive line.

 

 


My Mock (version 1)

21 April 2014 - 09:07 PM

1st Round:  Morgan Moses OT

 

This is how I think it will play out (or in similar fashion). We get 3 starters in the first 3 picks. Maybe 4 in 4 if Turner is ready to compete.  I think that we will lose out on the top 5-6 receivers, and Moses is gaining momentum. I do like him as a prospect. He is a low risk pick to me. He can play both OT positions, and has the makings of what could be an elite guard. Very powerful at the point of attack and loves the game. Virginia churns out another good lineman

 

 

2nd Round:  Davante Adams  WR

 

Gettleman stresses that we want "touchdown scorers" and nobody at WR scored more than Davante Adams. He is a hard worker, a reliable target, and has sneaky speed. He will be a very good red-zone weapon.

 

 

3rd Round:  EJ Gaines CB

 

EJ Gaines might be my favorite CB in the draft as far as value goes. He is a VERY aggressive and smart player that would thrive in our system.  Rashaad Reynolds was another CB that I felt this confident about, but I gave the edge to Gaines due to upside.

 

 

4th Round:  Trai Turner OG

 

Turner gets lost in the shuffle amongst LSU players, but he might be the best pro eventually. He is a strong run blocker but needs to get in the weight room to handle some of the players he will see every Sunday. Could push to start in year 1.

 

 

The other prospects are developmental/upside guys that I think can be very good depth for us while also growing into weekly contributors:

 

5th Round:  Robert Herron WR

 

 

6th Round:  Khairi Fortt OLB

 

 

7th Round:  Justin Britt OT
