Hey, I'm a Panthers fan and just getting bored so decided to do a mock draft for y'all. I think I did decent. I love y'alls coach Sean McDermott. He was a great defensive coordinator for the Panthers.
At 22, I drafted Jerry Jeudy to be the superstar receiver that Josh Allen needs. Superb route-runner and electric. Comparable to former Bama receiver Amari Cooper. Home run pick for the Bills.
At 54, I brought in Bryce Hall, a cornerback from Virginia. He's got length at 6'1 and has been compared to Panthers cornerback James Bradberry, who has consistently locked down top wide receivers. Great pickup to add to an already great secondary. Could serve as a No. 2 or No.3 corner with Tre'Davious White and Levi Wallace in the fold.
At No. 86, I drafted Van Jefferson, an elite route-runner from Florida. I actually wouldn't mind the Panthers drafting him either. Another playmaker for Josh Allen to work with next season.
At No. 118, I drafted Curtis weaver. I honestly have no idea how he fell this far, but this would this would be an absolute stud to add in the fourth round. He has been getting 1st round buzz with him being an almost guaranteed 2nd rounder. Great speed and get off.
At No. 137, I added interior defensive lineman Jordan Elliott. Solid DT with developmental value. Currently sitting at a 3rd round value, but I got him in the 5th. Could pair with Ed Oliver and Jordan Phillips to create a fearsome trio on the inside. He could also serve as the replacement for former Panther Star Lotuleilei.
At No. 149, I hurriedly picked up KJ Hill to complete the rebuilt young receiving core in Buffalo. He's quite small at 5'9 but could be a part of some trick plays up Brian Daboll's sleeve. He had a Senior Bowl reminiscent of Redskin's rising star Terry McLaurin's game.
At No. 168, I went ahead and grabbed Shaquille Quarterman from Miami to bolster the linebacker depth. Depending on how he develops, he could potentially take over for Lorenzo Alexander. From what I know, he was a tackling machine. Perhaps McDermott could mold him into a star.
At No. 181, I selected a young powerback to pair with Devin Singletary in AJ Dillon. Also could replace 16-year veteran Frank Gore in the backfield. He was great in Boston College, maybe he could carve out a significant role in Daboll's run heavy scheme.
Finally, I grabbed a developmental prospect in Yasir Durant to be o-line depth.
