  1. He’s not comparing him to Lawrence, he’s saying Stroud > Lawrence.
  2. Wouldn’t be shocked to him be part of a trade up on draft day. Possibly a team that missed out on a second tier QB, might take the bait.
  3. Yeah, I definitely agree! Our current staff will so much better developing talent.
  4. Yeah it’s definitely tempting, but remember we don’t have a first pick next year and getting value at 39 is crucial. Honestly, trading up this year late in the first might be the way to go.
  5. Yeah, but as a 4th rounder he would probably be ST’s/depth type player. So not really a high risk pick
  6. Williams redshirted his first year with the Orange, playing in four games on special teams with no statistics, but became one of the top cornerbacks in the ACC in 2020 (64 tackles, three for loss with one sack, two interceptions, one returned for a score, in 11 starts). He tied for the conference lead with 10 pass breakups to earn honorable mention all-league notice. The former all-region pick at Hickory Ridge High School in North Carolina was an honorable mention All-ACC pick in 2021, tying for the conference lead once more with 10 breakups, in addition to posting 52 tackles, five for loss, in 10 starts. Williams was an honorable mention pick again in 2022 (36 tackles, 1.5 for loss, two interceptions, three pass breakups in seven starts) despite missing the second half of the season with a torn ACL. -- by Chad Reuter
  7. Boutte (pronounced boo-TAY) grew up 90 minutes from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, starring at Westgate High School to earn top-100 recruit status in the 2020 class. He took advantage of star receiver Ja'Marr Chase's decision to opt out of the 2020 season and earned Freshman All-American and SEC All-Freshman Team honors by leading the Tigers with 735 receiving yards (45 receptions, 16.3 per, five TDs in 10 games, five starts). He set an SEC-record with 308 receiving yards against Ole Miss that season. Boutte started the first six games of the 2021 season (38-509-13.4, nine TDs) but missed the rest of the year with a right ankle injury -- and required a second surgery on that injury in the following spring. In 2022, Boutte started 10 of 11 games played, catching 48 passes for 538 yards (11.2) and two scores. He missed one game (versus New Mexico) in September 2022 to be there as his girlfriend gave birth to their first child. He switched jersey numbers from No. 1 to 7 his junior season, following in the footsteps of other playmakers from Louisiana, such as DJ Chark, Leonard Fournette, Tyrann Mathieu, Patrick Peterson and Derek Stingley Jr. He originally decided to return to LSU for 2023 but ultimately declared for the draft and opted out of the team's bowl game to prepare. -- by Chad Reuter
  8. To'oTo'o played in 23 games (22 starts) and recorded 148 tackles, 15 TFL and 1.5 sacks during his two-year stint with Tennessee. In 2021, he transferred to Alabama and totaled 112 tackles, eight TFL and four sacks. He has average height with a linear build and longer arms, and his top-end speed on tape is very good. His recognition skills, especially versus the run, really showed improvement throughout the 2021 season. He's quick to locate the ball, and he has very good short-area burst, change-of-direction quickness and closing speed versus the run, with great range from sideline to sideline. To'oTo'o gets stuck on blocks too long when he doesn't use his fast eyes and quick hands to prevent blockers from enveloping him. He's not a thumper, but he's a reliable tackler with good short-area sting at the point of attack and long arms to lasso ball-carriers in space. As a blitzer, he shows good instincts and very good burst but gets knocked off course too easily when reached. And in coverage, To'oTo'o can be a quarter-count late with his eyes too often, but he has the fluidity, change-of-direction skills and closing burst to continue to improve in this area.
  9. 93. Carolina Panthers(from SF) Andre Carter II, Edge, Army Carter could land in an ideal spot in Carolina. He will have a chance to grow with the other young defensive players to add strength and mass to his 6-6 frame, while spending time primarily as a designated pass-rusher early in his career. After racking up 15.5 sacks in 2021, Carter had just three last season.
  10. Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina If Carolina is going to take a quarterback at No. 1, it needs to add playmakers around him. My comp for Downs is Tyler Lockett. Downs has the potential to be a flexible secondary option from the slot as well as on the outside. He had 195 catches for 2,364 yards and 19 touchdowns over the past two seasons.
  11. Easy Buddy, Army veteran here… jk! yeah it’s a project pick, I’ll post his reasoning for the pick in a few.
  12. https://www.espn.com/nfl/draft2023/insider/story/_/id/35958143/2023-nfl-mock-draft-jordan-reid-seven-round-predictions-259-picks Carolina Panthers picks.. C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina Andre Carter II, Edge, Army Henry To’o To’o, LB, Alabama Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU Garrett Williams, CB, Syracuse No TE or DT, but damn that’s pretty strong IMO.
  13. Both Flowers and Downs remind me of Tyreek Hill, without the elite 40 time speed. Either would be an immediate upgrade as a return specialist.
  14. NFL Draft: UNC's Josh Downs praised by Steve Smith Sr., 'He will make a fool out of you'
  15. How did I know you’d choose the TD that cost us the game.
  16. Quick, name a play DJ made to win a game or hell even putting us in position to win a game.
  17. But… Minshew… damn it, our resident GM’s had a plan!!
