Mock Drafts


Three Round Mock Draft – March 13th

Carolina Panthers

 

 

1. Carolina Panthers Cam Newton – QB – Auburn 

The decision-making process behind the first overall pick could last up to the day of the draft for Carolina. The list of needs for the Panthers is a long one that includes several key positions such as: Defensive End, Defensive Tackle, Cornerback, and Wide Receiver. The team’s Achilles heel a year last season, however, was the play at the Quarterback position. Jimmy Clausen did not prove himself enough to deter the Panthers from taking the top QB on their board. Even after a disappointing Combine performance, Cameron Newton has the upside to be a franchise signal-caller. His college resume is a small but highly decorated one and his physical tools are unparalleled. He’ll need some time to develop, but Newton offers the franchise a true face and unique talent moving forward. Carolina may decide that Cam is too risky (read more…)

Twitter Live Mock Draft February 10th

Written by Gil Alcaraz IV on February 9, 2011

So I’m doing a live mock draft on my twitter account @GilAlcarazIV at about 5 PST tonight, Thursday, February 10. Come join in on the fun and let your voice be heard! I’m taking votes for each pick in order, and the player that receives the most votes will be the pick for that team. Here is the order and who has been picked up to this point. Get on Twitter tonight and send me your thoughts.

 

Update! I’ve decided that it may be better for us to let everyone in on a time that we’re going to do this and maybe we can start over, with more participants and some better decisions (i.e. Jonathan Baldwin at 14). So either leave a comment on here or shoot me a tweet on my Twitter page on what you think is best and we’ll go from there. The tentative time (read more…)

Post Senior Bowl Mock Draft Feb. 4th

Written by Gil Alcaraz IV on February 4, 2011

Carolina Panthers

The Senior Bowl has come to a conclusion and there have been some interesting moves for certain players’ draft stocks. Things continue to fluctuate as we get deeper and deeper into draft season. Players rise and fall as the All-Star games are played and the Combine closes in. So here’s another look at what may just happen in late-April when the draft rolls around.

 

1. Carolina Panthers Da’Quan Bowers – DE – Clemson

With so many talented options and several holes that need to be filled, it’s a good thing the Panthers have so much time to decide. The effects of the Julius Peppers hangover are still lingering, and Carolina should end up taking Bowers, the guy that’s most often considered the best player in the draft. 2. Denver Broncos Patrick Peterson – CB – LSU

There doesn’t appear to be a more well-rounded player going into the (read more…)

Championship Sunday Mock Draft – Jan. 23rd

Written by Gil Alcaraz IV on January 23, 2011

Carolina Panthers

It’s Championship Sunday in the NFL and we won’t make you wait any longer for another mock draft. Look for them to be coming more frequently now, so check back often.

 

1. Carolina Panthers Da’Quan Bowers – DE – Clemson

Andrew Luck decided to stick around at Stanford for one more year and that threw one huge wrench in the works in Carolina. With the loss of Julius Peppers still lingering in the back of their minds, the Panthers will look to find the next great defensive end of the NFL in Bowers. 2. Denver Broncos Patrick Peterson – CB – LSU

Peterson is a supreme athlete who brings plenty to the table for any NFL team. The Broncos struggled to contain the pass all season long and Champ Bailey isn’t getting any younger. Peterson will help lift a wilting defensive secondary as well as provide a spark (read more…)

“Way Too Early” Mock Draft – Nov. 1st

Written by Wes Stueve on November 3, 2010

Wes Stueve brings you his second mock draft, where he breaks down how he thinks things would shake out if the season ended today in our "Way Too Early" mock draft series.

1. Carolina Panthers AJ Green – WR – Georgia*

With only the 31-year-old Steve Smith at wide receiver, the Panthers are in need of some more weapons to help out former Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen. Dwayne Jarrett was released after a second DUI arrest, and while a good player, Smith is not good enough to make up an entire receiving corps. Green is a great vertical threat with excellent leaping ability and athleticism. Likely the best receiving prospect since Calvin Johnson, Green is unlikely to fall out of the top five picks. 2. Buffalo Bills Andrew Luck – QB – Stanford*

Buffalo lacks a face of the franchise and anything to truly get (read more…)

2 Round “Way Too Early” Mock Draft 5.0

Written by Aaron Aloysius on October 8, 2010

Aaron Aloysius takes you through the first two-round mock of our "Way Too Early" series.

1. Buffalo Bills Andrew Luck – QB – Stanford*

The end of the Captain Checkdown experiment has only further highlighted the Bills’ need for a franchise QB. The team may flirt with drafting an elite receiver (AJ Green) or pass rusher (Robert Quinn), but — like in the last two drafts — the first pick ultimately will be used on a franchise QB. The two most likely candidates are Jake Locker and Andrew Luck. While Locker more closely resembles the type of athletic QB Chan Gailey prefers, questions about his accuracy and pocket presence could damage his draft stock. And while Luck isn’t an athlete on Locker’s level, the Stanford QB is far from a statue, and his combination of physical tools, smarts, and leadership qualities make him an ideal #1 overall (read more…)
