With the 28th Pick, Patrick Helper provides the insight as to who the Carolina Panthers select
"With the 28th Pick the Carolina Panthers select Allen Robinson WR Penn Sr. Carolina is looking to give Cam Newton another target, in hopes of limiting the number of hits he has to take. At 6’3″ 220 pounds Robinson will provide a good bail out target. He ran a 4.47 40 yard-dash during his workout. Having the speed and larger size will allow Robinson to pick up extra yards after contact."
The 29th and 30th picks go to our Podcast guru Brad Eickhorn selecting for the Patriots and the 49ers.
"With the 29th pick the San Francisco 49ers select Donte Moncrief, WR Ole Miss. He’s not explosive like Lee or Watkins, but his route running ability and size make him one of several attractive wideouts in this year’s draft. He could potentially be the next “sorry receiver” according to cornerback and all around “nice guy” Richard Sherman. With the 30th pick, the New England Patriots select Ra’Shede Hageman, defensive tackle, Minnesota. Hageman is no stranger to playing in cold weather. His size and impressive strength will help add depth to New England’s pass rush, asking with his ability to disrupt any rushing attack."
The 31st pick makes its way back to Patrick Helper for the Denver Broncos.
"The Broncos select Cyrus Kouandjio with the 31st pick. The Broncos have the scoring power, so the addition of Kouandjio should frighten some teams.He weighs in at 322 LB, and stands 6″7′ tall. It’s going to be hard to get to the QB with this guy on the Broncos line. With some seasoning, he could be in orange and blue for many years."
The final pick of the Buffalowdowns First Round Mock Draft is provided by Nathan Gerst and the Seattle Seahawks.
"My pick for the Seahawks is Austin Seferian-Jenkins The Seahawks need a big body guy over the middle and Seferian-Jenkins is just that guy. He isn’t going to beat anyone with his speed but he will create the mismatch the Seahawks are lacking in the middle. He has great route running ability and has a nack for finding holes in the defense. He will provide a target that Russel Wilson can rely on. Many will think this is to early to take Austin but the fact is the Seahawks lack a guy who can go over the middle and create the mismatch over and over again."
