Dane Brugler Mock Draft 1.0 (from The Athletic)

At #10, the Panthers take quarterback Kenny Pickett.

10. Carolina Panthers — Kenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh

Flash back six years ago: Pickett, then a high school junior, committed to play quarterback at Temple for head coach Matt Rhule. Pickett re-opened his recruitment once bigger programs showed interest and chose Pitt, but this time around, Rhule might decide Pickett’s next destination. To fix its hole at quarterback, Carolina has unsuccessfully tried the former first-round pick route with Teddy Bridgewater in 2020 and Sam Darnold and Cam Newton this season. Unless they lure Aaron Rodgers to Charlotte this offseason, using a first-round pick of their own on a promising quarterback like Pickett might be the Panthers’ best option.

Obviously this assumes Rhule is still head coach in Carolina (sadly a fair assumption until proven otherwise).

Pickett is the first quarterback taken in this scenario. Sam Howell goes to the Steelers at 16 and Matt Corral joins Rivera in Washington at 19.

I'd add that the Aaron Rodgers speculation seems dubious, but could be interesting if the Panthers were to dump Rhule for Nathaniel Hackett.

Other picks of interest...

DE Aidan Hutchinson (Michigan) to the Lions at #1

DE Kayvon Thibodeaux (Oregon) to the Texans at #2

OT Evan Neal (Alabama) to the Jaguars at #3

DE Travon Walker (Georgia) to the Falcons at #11

OT Trevor Penning (Northern Iowa) to the Raiders at #18

OL or bust.  Trade down & take BPA on the line. 

But if Rhule is still here, prepare for him to have a hard-on for Pickett.  At this point, may have to hope he rises and we don't get the chance to draft him.  Not like we have ammo to trade up anyway unless we're sending players. 

I have a feeling a QB will be highest needs, from the teams perspective, going into this draft. Even if some fans don’t agree with it. 
I bet they will try to get a day 2 pick but trading a player or some late round draft picks. I think the first 2 picks for us will be OL and QB or QB and OL. 
of course if Matt Rhule is gone who knows what will happen.

SMH, seems like a heavy OL early type of draft. We’ll reach for a QB this year when multiple better options were juust passed on and then we won’t have another pick until round 4 when all the good OL are already gone. 

you don’t double down on a mistake just because you’re upset about how it turned out 

the usual crowd of huddlers will spend the offseason nitpicking every QB prospect and clamoring for the “safest prospect available” and then a number of those QBs they criticized for not being a gEnErATIonAL talent will inevitably become good players

Two things:

I think we will be picking a lot higher then 10.

 

Is Pickett a top 10 qb?  He had a great year, makes nfl throws but damn I just dont know.  When you pick a qb in the top 10 and he doesnt work more times than not your poo is fuged for a long long time

To be honest, I’d say that Burrow, Tua, Herbert, Lawrence, Wilson, Lance, Fields and Jones all would be or have a high probability to be the top QB taken this year. We really have fallen into the Marty 2.0 mode of draft preparation where we reach for need positions in the worst years and ignore them in deep years. We went with Little in a bad OT class/great IOL class and went DT in a strong OT class. We also went expensive middling to bad vet QBs in two decent QB classes and now I’ll likely go QB in one of the worst QB classes in years.
