Beat writers are starting to suggest a RB is not likely in the first round for the panthers.

Well Fournette won't be there when we pick at #8, so unless you think we reach on Cook who had a ho-hum combine at #8, then I don't see any way we take a RB in the first without trading back.

If Adams falls he'll be pick, but more likely going to be a DE(Thomas preferably) or maybe a DT/DE if Allen falls because of shoulder concerns.

take a DE, pick RB in 2/3

[Edited on March 13, 2017 at 12:03 PM. Reason : if somehow hooker is still there at 8, that would be intriguing as well]

I've seen Cook mocked in the 12-18 range, so I think it would be a slight reach. Had he had a big combine I'd have felt better about the pick but I just think we'd be passing up better players at #8 if we took Cook just because we wanted an upgrade at RB.

I think you go DE/S in the first(please let Adams fall) and then RB in the 2nd or 3rd(Kamara, Foreman, Pettine, etc).

There aren't 10 football players in the draft better than Dalvin Cook.

I'd like to see us take oj Howard

We need a 2nd TE badly and it would take a lot of pressure off our shaky WR Corps

Plus olsen is old, expensive, and likely to start breaking down soon

Lots of highly rated defenders or that offensive tackle we could use.

I'd hate to see us spend a top ten pick on a luxury position like RB

I've seen enough of Dalvin on Saturdays where I don't need to study his combine numbers. Wonder if we'd spend a 1st rounder on a guy with off the field issues though.

we are going to take a LB... just because we never really do anything too exciting on draft day. Drafting an LB seems like it would create the typical panthers draft day experience.

I mean, it will probably turn out to be a solid pick, just nothing that will make anyone super excited.

Final note: Even if someone fun like Fournette is still on the board, we will still grab the LB that will inspire the culinary equivalent of bread sandwiches and water for our Panther draft day expectation-dining experience

There will be a clear cut BPA available after a few early surprise picks, and they'll pick some guy that was expected to go around 20-25.

Ten guys that would be better 1st round picks than Cook:
1. Myles Garrett
2. Jamal Adams
3. Malik Hooker
4. Solomon Thomas
5. Leonard Fournette
6. Jonathan Allen
7. Marshon Lattimore
8. OJ Howard
9. Reuben Foster
10. Mike Williams

Order is debatable, but I'm just not as high on Cook as some. Hell I'd rather take Mixon with our early 2nd round pick than take Cook with our 1st. Cook looked great at times for FSU, but he also had some stinkers and was dinged up often.

I do think we need a LB with Klein leaving, Luke's concussion history, and Davis's age, but I'd be a bit surprised if we went Foster in the first and really that's the only LB worth a top 10 pick.

Not going to lie. I'm still a little scared we're going to reach and take Jabrill Peppers in the 1st.

Mixon could be Bo Jackson 2.0 and we still wouldn't draft him, so there's no real point in bringing him up

It wouldn't surprise me if Mixon isn't drafted at all.

Considering how many visits Mixon got for his pro day and visits he's had from teams, I don't see him going later than the 3rd. Kid is young and saying all the right things, he'll 100% get drafted, it's all about the "when". Teams just don't pass on 1st round talent in the 3rd round or later.

Tyreke Hill got drafted, Greg Hardy got signed, etc.

Hooker has flashes of Ed Reed, he just needs to work on his tackling. Good coverage skills, great speed, great hands, playmaker....but his tackling is definitely suspect but not like he can't improve there. His current injury isn't helping his draft stock though, but I still think he goes top 12, too much upside.

you have to go all the way back to 2015 when somebody dropped out of the draft after being a first round talent (La'el Collins)

Good mock-draft breakdown



Dont really see the need to go receiver like these guys do.

Seems like need to address the secondary/lines more.

Weve used high picks the last 2 years on receivers.

Didn't even draft a receiver last year.

I hope there's some way Jamal Adams drops. He and Bradberry could be the foundation of a monster secondary for years to come.

That's an ENTIRELY different situation. Collins was ACTIVELY being questioned in regards to a crime, it wasn't something that was resolved months before the draft. If Collins was cleared even a week before the draft, he would have gone 1st round.

If Mixon punched the girl a week before the draft, he would probably fall completely out of the draft. The Mixon situation is basically the Tyreke Hill ordeal with video. Hill still got drafted and wasn't anywhere near the high draft pick that Mixon was before the incident. He'll 100% get drafted. Hell even the GB scouts were saying he wouldn't be on the board before they picked in the 2nd round. That's the talent level we're talking about.

^Yeah Adams is the ideal pick for us, exactly what we need and has rave reviews for his leadership and off-the-field stuff so I think he'd be a perfect fit for our locker room too. Problem is he'll never make it past #3 barring desperate QB picks. I'd also include Worley in that foundation, he graded out really well against the run last year per PFF.

Hard pass on the WRs. If we're assuming Garrett, Thomas, Allen, and Adams are off the board when we pick, I think it'll be between: Fournette, Howard, and Foster. I still just have a bad feeling about Jabril Peppers though.

You're right. Collins didn't commit a crime. In fact, the cops made it clear wasn't a suspect. Mixon is a piece of shit.

what a shitbag article. In one paragraph he makes the team look like villains for forcing Cam out there... then he makes it look clear that Cam kept himself out there. I mean... the team is not going to risk the face and future of our team in order to complete a 5-8 season. Where is the benefit in that, Scott Fowler? Unless he was completely medically cleared and there was no risk to turn this into something worse, why would they allow him to play?

My favorite line comes when the author is galloping in on his white horse spewing about the risk involved with Cam playing...

Quote :
"But what I wonder is how much risk the Panthers were taking when they allowed Newton to play in those final three games of 2016? Don’t tell me there was no risk, because there’s a risk every time you step on the field."


Yeah, I guess we neglected to consider that playing Cam(even if he was cleared by a DR.) with a partially torn rotator cuff would indeed put him at risk for broken ankles, concussions, sunburns and rogue space debris.

Why play Cam at all then? Why play the game? What a douche-nugget
===================================================

And why is everyone so worried about the QB situation in light of this news? Havent you all heard, Tony Romo is going to be traded to Carolina!!! I hope it only costs 1 1st round pick to land him and his 14 million dollar salary!!

Total disaster. Another season likely down the tunes.

Furious that they let him play and waited too late to get the surgery.

We should have tanked for the draft pick. Now our veteran free agent signings make even less sense
