Mock Draft with Comp Picks

25 March 2015 - 09:41 AM

**This is assuming we sign Greg Jennings and Alan Ball**


Round 1: Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon

6'6" - 306 lbs - 33 3/4" arms - 10 3/8" hands



Fisher remains very high on my list. He played RT for three seasons before switching over to the blindside his senior season. The Ducks pass protection improved after he made the switch. Scouts were worried about his athleticism heading into the offseason but Fisher has proven them all wrong. He ran the second best 40-yard dash time (5.01 sec) and by far the best 20-yard shuttle time (4.33 sec) of all offensive lineman. He has rare acceleration for his 6'6" frame and takes great angles in space. He can come in and compete for a starting spot at either tackle position or at guard. 


Round 2: Jay Ajayi, RB, Boise State

6' 0" - 221 lbs - 32" arms - 10" hands



Ajayi is a smart, traditional running back. He keeps his legs moving constantly and can push piles forward. Has shown the ability to run between the tackles or to the outside with proficiency. Grew up playing soccer and developed great balance and nimble footwork. Explosive lateral movement and makes unreal cutbacks. He is also a weapon out of the backfield in the passing game. Finished last season with over 1,800 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards. Has all the traits of a three-down back.


Round 3: Gerod Holliman, FS, Louisville

6'0" - 218 lbs - 32" arms - 9 1/2" hands



Holliman is a skilled ballhawk who finished last season with 14 interceptions. He consistently made NFL-level reads. Fluid movement in space and can cover a lot of ground. Can bait QBs into throws. He will lay a big hit but his tackling is his main concern. Does not shed blocks well. Very high ceiling but will need to develop the physical aspect of his game to avoid being a liability in run support. Tre Boston may be better suited at SS, adding Holliman would give us the ability to move him there.


Round 4: Ty Montgomery, WR, Stanford

6'0" - 221 lbs - 31" arms - 10 1/8" hands



Montgomery is a superb athlete and is built like a rock. Thick, muscular frame. Has the speed to bolt down the field along with the quickness and agility to make solid plays after the catch. Not the best route-runner but has great work ethic and is considered a high character guy. He should be able to develop that part of his game. Also has experience as punt returner while at Stanford.


Round 5: Andrew Donnal, OT, Iowa

6'6" - 313 lbs - 33 1/2" arms - 10" hands



He's big and ugly. Has experience at guard and tackle. Wins off his technique rather than power or athletic ability. Comes from a program that seems to pump out solid OL prospects. Would add nice depth and competition. 


Round 5: Damian Swann, CB, Georgia

6'0" - 189 lbs - 31" arms - 8 7/8" hands



Another appearance on my mock for Swann. I just like his value in this range. Needs to add weight and muscle but plays with energy and aggression. Also has solid speed and burst. Can be a threat on the blitz. Has trouble sticking with the WR due to stiff hips and lack of instincts. 


Round 6: Jake Ryan, OLB, Michigan

6'2" - 240 lbs - 31" arms - 9 3/8" hands



Ryan can play any of the three LB positions but may be best suited at a 4-3 SAM. He has a stout, stocky frame. Explodes under blockers and plays with leverage. Shows great timing on blitzes. High effort player but lacks instincts. Nice awareness in coverage but only decent footwork. Would be a great STs addition right away with the potential to develop into a rotational LB.



Round 6: Obum Gwacham, DE, Oregon State

6'5" - 246 lbs - 34 3/8" arms - 10" hands



Moved from wide receiver to defensive end last season. Extremely explosive athlete but limited experience. He once ran a 4.52 40-yard dash and was a high-jumper for the Oregon State track and field team. He has the tools but needs to develop the technique of a pass rusher. Scouts see a lot of potential in him but it may take a couple seasons for him to become an effective player. Carolina would be a great place for him to learn the position. 


Round 7: AJ Tarpley, LB, Stanford

6'2" - 241 lbs 



Tarpley doesn't shine in any particular area but plays with great instincts and awareness. Takes good angles in his pursuit and is decent in coverage. Hard-worker. Can contribute on special teams and could develop into a solid backup to Luke.

Todd Gurley to visit with the Panthers

18 March 2015 - 11:25 AM


D. Orlando Ledbetter ‏@DOrlandoAJC  

#Georgia RB Todd Gurley scheduled to visit the #Panthers. Plans to be ready by late July.


Not sure how I feel about this to be honest.


Tyler Vagyler Mock Draft w/ Trade

15 March 2015 - 05:37 PM

Picking at #25 could be a weird spot for the Panthers. There could be a run of WRs and OTs in the middle of the first which leaves us picking BPA at another position. That wouldn't be a terrible thing, but I think we could benefit from trading back into the early second and pick up an extra pick or two. I could see one of the QB needy teams trading up to get in front of Tennessee in order to get Brett Hundley. Jets, Bears, Browns come to mind.


In this scenario we trade #25 and our 7th round pick to the Jets for their 2nd and 3rd round picks.


Round 2 (Jets Pick): Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon


Round 2: Devin Smith, WR, Ohio State


Round 3 (Jets Pick): Jaquiski Tartt, SS, Samford



Round 3: Justin Hardy, WR, East Carolina


Round 4: Javorius "Buck" Allen, RB, Southern Cal



Round 5: Damian Swann, CB, Georgia


Round 6: Ryan Russell, DE, Purdue


Tyler Vagyler Mock Offseason v2

24 February 2015 - 12:23 PM


**Thomas DeCoud and DeAngelo Williams have been released previous to this post**


Roman Harper

Edmund Kugbila


Both guys are candidates to be released. Kugbila was a project coming out of the draft and hasn't even seen the field due to injuries. I don't see any reason to keep him around. Harper is going to be another year older and probably even slower. If we find a decent replacement in free agency I think he is gone.




Looking at our list of free agents, I really don't see anyone worth resigning. Colin Cole and Dwan Edwards will be 33 and 34-years old. Ed Dickson isn't bad but he only had 10 catches last season. Blackburn is slow. Bell is garbage. Fozzy is a guy I'd like to bring back, but "we don't run the ball enough" so I don't know. Bersin should not be brought back but I have a feeling he will be.



Cam Newton - I think this will happen at some point during the offseason. It'll be a lot of money. Not going to try and guess.
Charles Johnson - CJ has been consistently solid for us. I think DG gives him a new deal to reward him, and as a result free up some cap.

Josh Norman - Obviously he looked great last season and I love the attitude he brings, but I'm still scared to give him long-term deal. 

Free Agency:

Joseph Barksdale, OT


Barksdale is a solid tackle who goes a bit under the radar. We are shopping at Target and he fits that value.

Torrey Smith, WR


Smith is a little higher value than "Target shopping" but I think DG will look into a couple of the higher rated WRs.

Ted Ginn Jr, WR/KR


Not much to brag about as a receiver but we definitely missed his KR/PR abilities.


Jabaal Sheard, DE



Solid player who saw his production drop when moved to OLB. Much better suited as 4-3 DE.


Da'Norris Searcy, SS


Keeping him on here from my previous mock. It's reported he will test the market. Perfect fit.

**These are all "bigger" signings. Additionally, we'd add some bargain-bin depth players at DT, LB, OL etc**


NFL Draft:


Round 1: Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford (HT 6'7", WT 312)


Peat is a very large man with very light feet. He is built like the prototype LT with long large arms and tree trunks legs. When in pass protection, he can move really well when performing a kick slide. Can mirror pass rushers when they are running the arc, as well as when they are trying to counter their pass rushing moves, or go inside once committing outside. Has the shown the ability to recover from getting beat, and ride DL outside to help form a pocket. Large butt and legs help him anchor when facing a bull rush. As a run blocker he can reach block, down block, arc block, and move his defenders with ease. Peat moves really well to the second level, and blocks linebackers with ease. Would fit perfectly into the Panther’s offense. Has experience with playing in a power running scheme, 3-7 step drops in the passing game, zone read, and play action plays.

Round 2: Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest (HT 6'0", WT 188)

Johnson is very quick, light on his feet and has fluid hips. Has great transition and recovery speed. He flashes good read and react skills, but is a bit inconsistent in his route recognition. Can excel if he can bulk up while maintaining his speed and agility.

Round 3: Nick O'Leary, TE, Florida State (HT 6'3", WT 252)


O'Leary has the size to be a good blocker and stay up strong to catch a pass when he's being covered. Has a quick off-the-snap run with such great hands that he doesn't even wear gloves. Needs to work on blocking bigger defenders.

Round 4: David Johnson, RB, Northern Iowa (HT 6'1", WT 224)


My favorite player in the draft. He can do it all. Patient runner with great field vision. He can catch out of the backfield and impressive route-runner. Excellent pass blocker. Experience as PR/KR. By all accounts, he's a hard worker and a good teammate. Flashed impressively patient running, particularly at the Senior Bowl. He had an unbelievable combine which might bump him up to a 3rd round pick.

Round 5: Antwan Goodley, WR, Baylor (HT 5'10", WT 209)


Like other recent Baylor wideouts, Goodley is a nightmare on the outside. Also has experience in the slot. He doesn’t have great straight-line speed, but does a solid job finding the ball over his shoulder. Great YAC ability. Physical runner with the ball.

Round 5 (comp pick): Deion Barnes, DE, Penn State (HT 6'4", WT 240)



Great size and frame for his position. Quick off the line and shows ability to get underneath blocker and hit the inside gap. Decent athletic ability but is able to cover a lot of ground with his large frame. Needs to add strength.


Round 6: Leterrius Walton, DT, Central Michigan (HT 6'5", WT 319)



Great combo of size strength and some speed, but as a converted offensive lineman, doesn’t yet have the honed skills as a defender. Walton has shown flashes of potential, but he’s a project player that has the measurables to succeed in the NFL.

Round 7: AJ Tarpley, LB, Stanford HT 6'2", WT 241)



Not the greatest athlete but is a smart player. Reliable tackler. Great instincts. Decent coverage skills to build on.
