Todd McShay Mock Draft 2.0: Panthers pick Christian Kirk.

Recommended Posts

24. Carolina Panthers - Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M

Picks of significance:

27. New Orleans Saints - Harold Landry, OLB, Boston College

26. Atlanta Falcons - James Daniels, G/C, Iowa

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Minkah Fitzpatrick, CB, Alabama
The most dynamic defensive player in college football this past year was Minkah Fitzpatrick. He is a safety, but can play multiple positions on the field. He is a swiss army knife at Alabama giving offensive coordinators nightmares. He truly is the total package with his size, speed, football IQ, and athletic ability. He will be a cornerstone of a defense in the NFL for many years. 

18. Seattle Seahawks - Mike Hughes, CB, UCF

1. Cleveland Browns - Sam Darnold, QB, USC
Darnold entered the season as the No. 1 pick and appears to be back on top because of his arm strength, accuracy, and mobility. However, turnovers and decision-making have become major question marks with him this year. The Browns had the most interceptions last season 28, but hopefully, for Cleveland's sake Darnold's upside is worth the risk.

Granted, I have not seen this kid play, but lack of speed from a 5'11" WR? Is that really what we want in a 1st round pick? That profile said he got open a lot on rub routes and is not an ideal down the field WR. His consistent productivity is definitely a plus, as is his ability to help in the return game.

He's no better than Curtis Samuel, I think he was just a solid college receiver not super electrifying. Being a SEC guy I watched him a lot never stood out to me. He's a second or third rounder in my opinion. Panther's defense came in as oldest in the NFL at the beginning of the year, and in the last few weeks the secondary was the worst in the league. Defensive end and safety/corner(Worley sucks) are bigger needs. The defense is whats going to carry us. Kuechly even said got to get it back to 2015 form.

The NFL.com player comparison for Saquon Barkley is Barry Sanders. LOL

I'm surprised they have draft profiles out so early before the combine

Those comparisons you really have to take with a grain of salt

I mean Fitzpatrick compared to Budda Baker?

Darnold Still being compared to Luck?

 

And Kirk weakness is speed and seperation.  Whoever scout this is didnt watch a down of Kirk last year.  These are actually his strengths.  Heck he is probably the fastest/quick WR in the SEC and 99% of the scouts other than this guy project him to run in the 4.32-4.35 range

A good comparison for Kirk is Desean Jackson coming out of Cal
