Ok, so I was looking at the CBS 7 round mock (see other thread), and decided to do my own re-mock using the players they had as available. Also, I think the panthers could easily use the extra picks they received to move up in the 4th and 5th rounds to grab the guys they want. However, it just didn't make any sense with the way this particular mock worked out. So I didn't do any trades
Round 1 (CBS): T.J. Clemmings, OT
Round 1 (ME): Erik Flowers, OT
I think this one is pretty obvious. Clemmings looked like a solid pick until I realized that they had Flowers as still available. I think that Gman would agree as well.
Round 2 (CBS): Agholor, WR
Round 2 (ME): Same, WR
Yes please... This gives us our two biggest needs while grabbing the BPA in both rounds. We could draft duds here on out and be just fine.
Round 3 (CBS): Duke Johnson, RB
Round 3 (ME): Alex Carter, WR
I wrestled with this one. I like Duke Johnson, and I like David Johnson (who is also available) even better, but this draft is full of RB, and only has a couple CB who could man the outside someday. We're going to need Carter next year.
Round 4 (CBS): Garrett Grayson, QB
Round 4 (ME): Javorius Allen, RB
I think this was the pick the huddle had the most heartburn with. Why burn a 4th rounder on a QB this year if we could just do it next year. That being said, I really wanted to draft Justin Cox... but with the history we have with domestic violence it's just not going to happen. Besides, we already got Carter who is almost as good without the off-field issues.
Round 5 (CBS): Senquez Golson, CB
Round 5 (ME): Gerod Holliman,S
Golson doesn't fit our team as we already have a nickel CB. As for Holliman, CBS had us getting him with our next pick, but the reality is he is the BPA at this point so I grabbed him early.
Round 5 (CBS): Gerod Holliman, S
Round 5 (ME): Corey Robinson, OT
Same as above
Round 5 (CBS): Corey Robinson, OT
Round 5 (ME): Zach Hodges, OLB
Smart player who can provide depth at DE/OLB and play ST.
Round 6 (CBS): Andy Gallik, C
Round 6 (ME): Andy Gallik, C
Like this selection a lot, but I could easily see us not owning this pick when it rolls around
Round 7 (CBS): Troy Hill, CB
Round 7 (ME): Josh Shaw, CB/S
OK, so now I'm violating my own rules against anybody who has been associated with domestic violence. But shaw is clearly one of the BPA, Carolina likes picking DBs and RBs in the late rounds, and he's the only DB left that really fills a need. As long as you can't get rid of this pick for more value next year, I'm all for throwing it as a high-ceiling player that just might pan out. CBS also has Chaz Green available, who I would have selected if we hadn't already taken two OTs.
So in summary
CBS: OT, WR, RB, QB, CB, S, OT, C, CB
ME: OT, WR, CB, RB, S, OT, OLB, C, CB/S
pretty similar... and if the real draft is anything close to CBS's version we'll get plenty of talent in needed areas
