Topics I've Started

Would we take a QB?

10 March 2013 - 11:10 AM

I'm in mockone.net's mock draft (mockthree) as an assistant gm of the Panthers and we are in the 4th round. Our GM is insisting that we take E.J. Manuel here because he fits our offense and would be a much better backup and potential trade bait over the next couple years but I'm just not convinced we would go QB. At least not this early when DT is still a need for us in the mock.


Dynasty Mock v.1

24 December 2012 - 12:34 AM

Let me start off by saying this didn't really get a lot of thought, just little things that make a little sense. Obviously this will change between now and April but here's my first shot at my ideal Panthers off season without going into a lot of detail.

GM: I think it is almost a foregone conclusion that Marc Ross will be the new GM

HC: If Rivera wins next week vs the aints his job should be safe for next year unless Ross convinces Richardson that we need to go in a dif. direction. If Rivera is fired, here are my top choices to be the new HC(that also make sense if Ross is hired): Seahawks DC Casey Bradley or Giants DC Perry Fewell(worked with Ross in NY and in Buffalo). Bradley is my top choice.

OC: I'll assume if Ross wants to go in a dif. direction, all assistants will be gone. Norv Turner is an offensive genius and I'm sure most would welcome here.

DC: Monte Kiffin. He has ties to Casey Bradley. When Kiffin was in Tampa, Bradley worked as defensive quality control for them plus Kiffin wants to stay in or near the southeast.

Free Agents:
I won't even think about free agents right now until we know who the HC will be next season.

Moving DWill is a possibility but I doubt any team will want that contract.


1st Round - Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
Think Julio Jones. Yes, Julio Jones. Patterson just declared for the draft and that will turn out to be a wise decision. Patterson will blow up the combine and put up similar numbers as Jones did. The only thing Jones has on Patterson is down field blocking and multiple seasons of experience vs top flight competition.

2nd Round - Leon McFadden, CB, San Diego State
4th Round - Xavier Nixon, OT, Florida
5th Round - Kapron Lewis-Moore, DT, Notre Dame
6th Round - Michael Williams, TE, Alabama


Cmilner2's Final "situational" Mock Draft

26 April 2012 - 11:04 AM

I'll include the pick that I think will happen and some other possible picks so we might know what we are looking at with the ninth pick.

1st pick - Colts - Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
-was told last week he is pick

2nd pick - Redskins - Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
-the first two picks will be in within the first 5 or 10 minutes of the draft

3rd pick - Vikings - Matt Kalil, OT, USC
-if they stay at 3, Kalil is the pick. WR in the first is out of the question with Jerome Simpson signing. Minnesota could trade down with Tampa Bay so TB can get Richardson. Minny would select Claiborne at 5 if he gets past Cleveland who's pick is reportedly down to he and Richardson. A trade down for Cleveland with a team like the Bills is possible if Buffalo wants Kalil ahead of Minny.

4th pick - Browns - Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
-as noted above, the Browns pick is reportedly down to Claiborne and Richardson. Trent is bpa of the two and fills a much bigger need. He will be the pick unless TB trades up to #3 in which case, Cleveland goes with Claiborne, Blackmon, Tannehill or trades down with team like the Bills(who select Kalil).

5th pick - Buccaneers - Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
-TB could trade up to #3 to get Richardson but if they do not, Claiborne, Kalil and Kuechly will be considered here. LB is TB's biggest need outside of RB but 5 is too high for Kuechly imo. Kalil would give TB one of, if not the best OL's in the NFL(Joseph, Penn, Kalil, Nicks).

6th Pick - Rams - Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
-if the draft falls this way, the Rams pick will be either Fletcher Cox or Justin Blackmon with the shocker pick being Dontari Poe. DT is arguably the Rams biggest need but getting a #1 WR for Bradford will be key to his success. If Kalil is to fall to 6, he will most likely be the pick over Blackmon.

7th pick - Jaguars - Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
-Jax came out and said that having a better corner would allow them to blitz more so if Gilmore or Claiborne is there, one of them will most likely be the pick. the Jaguars have been linked to Cox lately and he could also be the pick. If Blackmon were to fall, he would most likely be the pick. Ingram and Chandler Jones are other options as both fill a need and are high character guys which Gene Smith loves.

8th pick - Dolphins - Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
-most think that Tannehill is a lock to be a Dolphins if he is there at 8, I disagree. I'll list him as the pick but other options include Justin Blackmon, Fletcher Cox, Melvin Ingram and Chandler Jones. Jones has gained steam late and this could be as high as he could go. Miami is another team that I think could trade down if the guy they really want(Blackmon) isnt there. teams that could move up include Philadelphia and Dalls. Both could target one of two guys(Cox or Barron).

9th pick - Panthers - Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State
-If either Gilmore, Claiborne, Blackmon or Cox is available at 9, I dont see Carolina trading this pick unless they get an outrageous offer. recent rumors include if Blackmon is there for Carolina, he will be the pick but Cox fills the biggest need for Carolina outside of CB.

10th pick - Bills - Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
- as noted above, the Bills could move up to 4th overall if the Vikings pass up on Kalil for Claiborne in order to select Matt Kalil. after losing Demetress Bell, OT is Buffalo's biggest need outside of corner and receiver. If the Bills dont trade up, either Riley Reiff, Stephon Gilmore, Cordy Glenn, Michael Floyd or even Ryan Tannehill would be in play for them.

so there is the top ten...I'd list the entire 1st round, but that would be a lot of work lol. Just for fun, here is my final Panthers mock draft...

1st Round - Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State
-fills biggest need and is bpa at nine. could become a Kevin Williams type of presence for us.

2nd Round - Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama
-Peter King noted earlier this morning that the Panthers are one of about 5 teams that could take a chance on Jenkins. if available in the 2nd round, he is without a doubt the bpa and imo, worth the risk.

4th Round - Demario Davis, WLB, Arkansas State
-I think Demario Davis could be a 2nd round pick which would surprise most but if he is there in the 4th, you cannot pass up on him. Has instincts that are comparable to Patrick Willis and is a fast, tackling machine.

5th Round - WR(Ryan Broyles, Jarius Wright, Devon Wylie, Tim Benford, LaVon Brazzil)

6th Round - DE(Tim Fugger, Ernest Owusu, Frank Alexander)

6th Round - best Punter available(Anger/Butler/Stahovic/Coale)

7th Round - OL depth(Steven Baker, Levy Adcock, Gino Gradkowski, Rokevious Watkins)

Ctp's 32 Days Before Draft Mock Draft

25 March 2012 - 12:06 PM

This is probably my last mock draft for this draft. I will include two different scenarios where we stay at nine then a trade down. This is what I think will happen, not what i think SHOULD happen or what I want to happen.

First scenario: Staying with the ninth pick.

With the ninth pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Carolina Panthers select...

Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis

6'4 - 346 - 4.87

Posted Image

Dontari Poe will be considered a reach this high by most. His upside however is immense and with coaching from defensive minded head coach Ron Rivera, Poe could very well become Carolina's own version of Haloti Ngata. No man that is 6'4, 346 lbs should be able to move like Poe. If I were making this pick, I would take one of three players. Quinton Coples, Fletcher Cox or Nick Perry assuming that Morris Claiborne and Justin Blackmon are gone. Dontari Poe's size would create massive gaps for our linebackers to shoot through to stop the run. Poe also offers an unexpectedly good pass rush which is better than most of the other Defensive tackles in this draft.

2nd Round

Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia

5'9 - 182 lbs - 4.44

Posted Image

If Brandon Boykin were 6'0, he would be a top 15 pick. Boykin plays the game with more passion than any other corner in this draft. He has outstanding return ability to go along with great ball skills. The only downside to selecting Brandon Boykin, if there is one, is that he primarily played in a two deep zonetype defense at Georgia. I see Boykin becoming a Brandon Flowers caliber cornerback in the NFL.

4th Round

Keshawn Martin, WR, Michigan State

6'0 - 188 lbs - 4.45

Posted Image

I love Keshawn Martin as a mid round sleeper. He has good hands and very good speed to create seperation from corners. He doesn't always fight for the ball like you would like to see in a receiver, but with a little position coaching help from Steve Smith I don't see that being too much of a problem. Martin has reportedly drawn interest from teams in the second round. I beleive they see what I see, which is quite possibly the next Mike Wallace.

5th Round

Ryan Miller, G/T, Colorado

6'7 - 321 lbs - 5.27

Posted Image

Ryan Miller was once considered a second round pick. After having a poor senior bowl and average combine, Miller's stock took a huge hit. At the Senior Bowl, Miller displayed poor footwork which may cause him to make the move to guard in the NFL. The upside is still there at Tackle however and if Jeff Otah stinks it up again, Miller would battle with Byron Bell for the starting job at right tackle.

6th Round

Bryan Anger, P, California

6'3 - 208 - 4.75

Posted Image

Anger is the best punter in the draft and could be selected as high as the fifth round. Jason Baker was released which was expected. That leaves a hole at punter and Bryan Anger will be one of the best at his position in the NFL.

7th Round

Adrien Robinson, TE, Cincinnati

6'4 - 264 - 4.55

Posted Image

Adrien Robinson was not invited to the combine but blew up his pro day running a 4.55 forty yard dash. Robinson is similar in size to Antonio Gates who Rob Chudzinski coached in San Diego and has similar athleticism. Robinson should be drafted late by a team looking for some sort of project.

second scenario: trade down

just quickly throwing it out there. we trade down to a team looking to move up for Richardson, Tannehill, or whoever and acquire a 2nd round pick.

1-Michael Brockers, DT, LSU


2b-Harrison Smith, S, Notre Dame
