My Carolina mock draft

Recommended Posts

Things I have been told/reading in between the lines, here is what I have come up with my best GUESS

16: 
Greg Little, T, OLE Miss or Andre Dillard, T, WASST
(Other options: Cody Ford, Brian Burns, Garret Bradbury, Clemson DT)
Make no mistake, if Andre Dillard is here, he will be the pick, it seems less and less likely that it will happen that way. Little has all the talent of a of a Laremy Tunsil, just truly needs to work on technique to be a high level starter on the left side. This draft has a clear emphasis on not letting an injury on the oline derail our season, and if a high level tackle is here (Dillard, Little, Ford), we will pursue them. (Obviously, I don't think Sweat will be here)
 

 

47: 
Christian Miller, OLB, ALA 
(Other options: Nasir Adderly, Darnell Savage, Bobby Evans, Zach Allen, Dalton Risner)
If we don't get o-line in the first, I would expect Bobby Evans here. Miller fits the mold we need off the edge, and has a very high ceiling for a pass rusher. I don't buy the noise of a QB here. 

77: 
Will Grier, QB, WV
(Other options: Tytus Howard, Deebo Samuel)
It's clear we want to upgrade the backup QB position and make him sort of an insurance policy for Cam Newton's shoulder. Tyree Jackson or Clayton Thorton make sense in later round if we don't get Grier here. 

100: 
Miles Sanders, RB, PENN
Versatile RB that fits in the sort of bigger receiving back we are looking for. }

115: 
Phil Haynes, G, WF 
Excellent run blocking guard that swallows defenders whole. Solidify the offensive line even more. 

154: 
Blace Brown, CB, TROY 
Awesome zone corner that was slowed down due to injury, fits our scheme really well. 

187: 
CJ Conrad, TE, KEN
Have a need to fill at tight end with Olsen getting older, Conrad provides a developmental option who brings an edge in run blocking.

I completely hate this draft.. After the 1st pick i would turn off the TV throw up and go to depress mode.. Seriously i think this is the worst draft I've seen.. You could have literally not gotten 1 starter in this draft.. ugggggggggggggggghhh!!!!!!!

Is your source a scout from a rival in the division?? Seriously this would be their dream draft for us..

Granted, it's what I actually think will happen. I would be kind of shocked if we didn't go o-line in the first if Sweat is off the board.

Division rivals draft dream would be us trading up in the first and taking Grier with one of our remaining picks lol

This mock gives us potentially four starters.

Can't say I would be happy with this at all...You got a tackle that many are saying could fall to the second round in the first going to us. Taylor Rapp Mr. 4.7 40 a first round option as well for us? We finally get rid of Adams and you think replacing him with another anchor  as a option in the first round? Lonnie Johnson Jr...in the first? I don't know who this guy is. Bradberry went out the window when we signed the Broncos center.

I think I there is a “pass rush or bust” mentality that has pushed this place over the edge.  It’s a need yes but if you ignore everything else except for that things will get ugly quick. 

I dont necessarily like this draft but I see 3-4 starters.  I can be happy with it eventually.

I'll honestly be ecstatic if we manage to get Dillard or if we draft a LT at all in the first, seems like we have neglected it since Gross retired.

-I'd be kind of surprised if Tunsil got to our pick in the 2nd. Could he fall out of the 1st? Sure, but he is still a potential anchor at left tackle. 
 

-Taylor Rapp's 40 doesn't matter, and he is one of the most instinctive safeties in the draft in the mold of Harrison Smith

-Lonnie Johnson Jr is a solid 1st round grade CB, very lengthy, can play zone, and be our best press corner. 

-Bradbury can absolutely play guard

That would be a terrible draft period. If that was our first rd pick, that would put an end to Hurney being money on those picks. No way their would be four starters out of that draft. You usually have some good insider info but this year it's like Sanjay hacked your account.

Dillard/Little would be our starting LT 
Miller would start at edge 
Brown would compete for the outside corner spot 
Haynes could start at guard if we don't end up getting another tackle/kick Moton inside

Interesting mock. So a lot of mocks have Little dropping to the early second. Why are you high on him especially over Ford. In your scenario would Jonah be gone?

Also why Ford over Burns?

It would seem to me the Little, Johnson, Rapp pick would signal  a trade back to the twenties. With that extra pick we could pair it with 47 to get a late first/early second or one of our thirds to get back into the second.  Everything I’ve heard is the meat of the draft is in the second/third rounds where there are plenty of potential starters.
