Stumbled across this prospect on another website. Seems like a good sleeper. FS out of William & Mary. Link includes a highlight tape that seems impressive. Haven't seen the Panthers linked to him though.
Well this is what I saw so I'm still holding out hope
@MikeGarafolo: In addition to CB Terrell Thomas, who was in for a visit today, the Panthers are nosing around CB Antoine Cason. Figure they sign 1 or both.
I really hope we are able to sign both. We're going to have to go draft heavy on offense. A secondary of Harper, Godfrey, White, Thomas, and Cason should suffice with our front 7.
If the value of DB outweighs that of WR/TE/OL in the 1st put me down. I have no problem having a CB that can slow down opposing WRs. Hell, I'd have no problem drafting Kyle Van Noy or Nix if they're the best value left on our big board.
It could benefit us that quite a few OL had poor showings at the combine. We can find some good values from the 3rd round on that can start immediately for us. OG (Cyril Richardson, Gabe Jackson) OT (Cyrus Kouandjio, Tiny Richardson, James Hurst, Ju'Wuan James)
Rather have Keenan Allen in the 1st. Would love Amerson in the 2nd. Has been underwhelming this season but good value. Try him at CB and if not move him to safety. Wouldn't mind trading up for Trufant. Good pick. Love Rambo in the 4th but I doubt he will be there. Who knows though. Overall great mock if it's anything close to that. Definitely dreaming on the FA pickups lol. Maybe we can create some wiggle room to sign a DT and OG.
Here is a quick mock i made. No fancy pictures/videos or detailed descriptions. Just straight to the point.
Round 1: Fletcher Cox DT
Seems to be the flavor of the week right now. Cox is exactly what we need at DT. He is a relentless pass rusher with upside to get even better. He is also versatile. I believe he can make an instant impact.
Round 2: Janoris Jenkins CB
Jenkins has his red flags but that does not diminish his value as arguably the best cover corner in the draft. He needs to clean up his act and Rivera is the man to do that. He would look great starting opposite Gamble.
Round 4: Cam Johnson DE
This is wishful thinking on my part. Johnson might be gone by round 3 but i'm hoping injuries and lack of production may cause him to fall. Johnson is versatile, solid against the run, and when healthy has the ability to be a ferocious pass rusher.
Round 5: Terrell Manning LB
Manning is a pretty good overall LB. He can be little reckless at times. Also shows the versatility to play inside and out.
Round 6: Devon Wylie WR/RS
Some more wishful thinking. Wylie might fall due to injuries and size concerns. But, he just ran in the 4.3's and may be drafted in the 4th. This guy screams Wes Welker to me. Can cause damage in our offense. Also doubles up as a dynamic return man.
Round 6: Danny Trevathan OLB
Trevathan is constantly making big plays. I don't know why he is rated so low. He is a good blitzer with sideline to sideline speed. He would fit in nicely at WLB for us.
Round 7: Drew Butler P
Might as well get a punter on board with our last pick.
Devon still although the safer pick has a much lower celing than Brockers. What you see is pretty much what you get. Also has injury concerns. Brockers on the other hand has huge upside. Like Haynesworth type upside without the drama. Brockers handles double teams fairly well. His run defense is actually his best attribute. He is also relentless and gives good effort every down. Still seems to take a few plays off every now and then.
