Yep. Unloaded a potential locker room issue with Sherman, and a TE on the last year of his deal and a strong TE class in the draft, and a whole bunch of cap space gained for the Seahawks and moving up from 26th to 8th was probably as good as a couple of 2nd rounders, IMO. :) It took two hands to clap though and there was plenty of back and forth in our negotiations.

haha Yes, sir.  As the Panthers, I figured we're in win-now mode.  We could always use another (big!) weapon for Cam, and the last time we had a standout at CB, we made the Super Bowl, which was just one calendar year ago.  Plus, Ron Rivera has shown he can handle boisterous personalities, so we feel comfortable taking on Sherman.  Plus, it helps to have him when divisional rivals have Julio Jones and Mike Evans.  The Seahawks get the benefits @chad72 just mentioned, and they are now a championship contending team that gets to pick in the top 10.  Lots of back and forth, as he said, but we got 'er done and I think both sides are happy

Only surprise so far, IMO, is Jonathan Allen. I think it's a bit of a reach, as he could fall as low as our pick at 15. Just some fun trash talk though, and we'll see how the mock turns out.

Just out of curiosity, what made you go with Fournette to the Jags?  They have Yeldon and Chris Ivory in their backfield.  Were you just not happy with both guys going sub-4.0 yards per carry?

I think Yeldon and Ivory are absolute trash. There were three things holding the Jags back last year. Bad coaching (which may or may not be fixed, we'll see), a bad QB (not sure there is a better QB right away at 4 this year) and bad rb play. Give Bortles a franchise RB to work with that can carry the ball 20 times per game, and it will take pressure off him and the defense, and it's the 1st step toward becoming a solid offense and a respectable team. I know the defense will do their job, the offense needs to show some life, and someone like Fournette is much better than someone like Howard.

This is moving along pretty fast compared to the ones last year and the one earlier this year. It is much better this way.

Who will you be cutting to get under the salary cap?  Both jimmy and Richard have pretty hefty price tags this year

This is kind of an easy decision for me.

 

Marsh and Clark are DE depth behind Bennett and Clark, so Barnett would be a luxury pick, IMO. If Hooker was there, I'd have given him a definite thought with the upside for his talent which is higher than that of Barnett. The Seahawks boosted their RB position with Eddie Lacy. So, it seems like their ground and pound may be back to take load off RW's shoulders, and the short passing needs to be bolstered with speedsters like Lockette and Richardson on the outside. With Brandon Williams gone to the Colts, Jimmy Graham gone in a trade, the well rounded TE makes the most sense here from a talent and need perspective at this spot.

 

With the 8th pick, the Seattle Seahawks select O.J.Howard, TE, Alabama

 

@loudnproudcolt and The Cincinnati Bengals are next on the clock.

With the 9th pick, a bit of a surprise. The Bengals select WR Mike Williams from Clemson.

 

I know Bengals need linebacker help and OL help after losing two starters, but the passing game last year was hurt with all the FA defections. Boyd did not look great, and I want a beast to pair up with Green.

 

Pairing Mike Williams up who looks like a number 1 to me and A.J. Green, both big bodies, and great hands, I would not want to be the DB's chasing them in today's passing league.

The Saints need an infusion of defensive talent. They want to go with the best upside here.

 

Thus, with the 11th pick of the Colts Forum Mock Draft, The New Orleans Saints select:

 

Haason Reddick, EDGE, Temple

 

 @WarGhost21 and The Cleveland Browns are on the clock.

I'm actually thinking they should take Conley.  They have their QB in Garropolo and some solid linebackers.  I think they should go CB

With none of my last ditch efforts to trade the pick working, I guess I'll use it!

 

In a bit of a surprise, the Cleveland Browns select: Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan

 

With this pick I begin to surround our new QB with weapons on offense, pairing with Kenny Britt and Corey Coleman!

 

@CR91 and the Cardinals are now on the clock!!!

    • Good....   They have no one to blame but themselves.... because Antonio Brown is a head case the likes of which we haven’t seen since Terrell Owens.... and they knew it.   Talk about high maintenance? He makes the space shuttle look like a paper airplane.
    • If we keep 6, and a 3rd X, he might be a bit better WR than Pascal, but the overall net/net would be negligible.   Inman would not be #3 this year. He might be the 3rd X if we kept 3 Xs, but at best he'd be 5th or 6th. Inman was #2 or #3 last year because we had a cluster at X. The Pats don't even have high quality depth, and Inman struggled there. Don't get me wrong, I love Inman for his contribution last year, but he's not a true #2 or #3.    At the beginning of the year, I'd bet you're likely going to see  1. TY 2. Funch 3. Rogers 4. Cain 5. Campbell   By the end of the year, I'd bet you're likely going to see 1. TY 2. Cain 3a. Campbell 3b. Funch 5. Rogers   Funch will start out as primary X, but you're going to see Funch play more and more slot as the year goes along. We're likely going to see Cain and Funch on the field at the same time. Roger's snaps will decrease as Funch slides to slot more often and as Campbell matures.   I wouldn't mind Inman over Pascal at #6 (if we keep 6), but overall you're only getting a little bit better/mature 3rd X, and you'd be cutting your experienced KR.   I don't expect Rogers to be here next year, but he's a lock IMO at this point. He's the only experienced slot in our system, and with Campbell missing so much, it's getting more and more unrealistic to think he won't be here to start as slot. He's also the only guy that has experience at Z (now that Fountain is gone) and has backed up TY. Ideally you also want you're 4th-6th WR to be the one taking PRs.   I hope they keep in contact with Inman, and even bring him to camp in case we need help this year due to injuries. It's pretty unlikely he makes the 53 though.
    • Mark Davis wont fire Jon Gruden anytime within the next few years after giving him a 10 year, $100 million contract. (Yes, coaches contracts are almost always fully guaranteed).
    • Walker was signed in 2017 as a UDFA. The Colts can have up to 4 players with 2 years experience on the PS. The remaining 6 can only have one or less years of experience IIRC.
    • If he can lay off all banned substances... who knows, maybe not too far out there.   He will be tested a boatload though.
