The Panthers pick is in below...not Nkemdiche...

Comment 28 Apr 2016

With the 30th pick in the 2016 Eleven Warriors Mock NFL DRAFT, the Carolina Panther select EMMANUEL OGBAH, DE from Oklahoma State. As the highest rated DE left, at a position of need for the Panthers, we felt duty bound to get a player from a university with the initials O. S. U.

Maybe I'm old, but there are two names that are not anywhere on the list, and should be. 

Allan Hornyak, 70-73, 2 time AA (HM), led OSU scoring the 3 years he played (Freshman rule prevented him from 4), and a member of Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame (the Bellaire Bomber)

Jim Jackson, 89-92, 2 time AA (1st Tm), 91-92 UPI player of the year (I don't know if his jersey is up there, but it should be. I just saw that my 'old eyes' missed this in the article....

Wow, there are some really thin skinned a$$hats in here. Someone posed a question a about a players status, without anything derogatory aimed at him, or anyone else; and a bunch of so-called 'protectors of the shield' jump up to save a players reputation (which wasn't even being attacked). Ridiculous.

I don't mind if it's the 4 best conference champions; and the only way it should be a non champion, is if they go over a champion team (say Stanford, with 2 losses). But, if you're suggesting that tOSU should have gone instead of MSU, you are totally wrong. That's the SEC mentality that put a non conference / division winning Alabama in the BCS championship game. The Buckeyes screwed the pooch in their game against the Spartans...play calling, execution, et al. Are they one of the 4 best teams - Yes; should they be in the CFP - No.

Good points all 76. wrt to your comments...

Powell, if he's fortunate, will be a 3/4 round pick. I like him, but between dropped interceptions, suspect coverage, and missed tackles, I was disappointed this year.

Apple, is probably the most ready of the three, but could definitely use another year. Tackling and coverage was off and on this year.

Marshall, who I really like, but I am dumbfounded as to him even considering entering the draft, unless there are financial issues which are paramount at this time. He has tons of potential, but it was obviously not on display this year, due in large parts the overall offensive dysfunctionality (probably not a word, but I'm going with it). 

Bonus - Lee; if his trajectory after last year stayed the same, I'd say, good luck and thanks, young man. However, due in part to offenses possibly staying away from him, and also missed tackles (all year, but the first half of M game at least three), stood out. He could use another year. His athleticism is great, but another year at LB, plus adding a little bit more muscle would only enhance his stock.

Bottom line: If UNC beats Clemson, the only team that might jump tOSU is Stanford (providing they win the PAC12). UNC will not jump the Buckeyes, and Clemson will not stay in front of the Buckeyes. I don't know which glass of half empty you're drinking from, but come into the light.

If you're speaking personnel wise, that isn't the only difference; running backs coach has also changed. Probably not a big factor, but it is a change. Also, Devin Smith and Evan Spencer (deep threat and blocker, not to mention leadership), have not truly been replaced. Throw in the fact that Warriner was given the 'Head' co-OC title, along with his Oline duties. That, along with the fiasco that was QBgeddon, is, in my opinion, the big difference. One QB should have been named the starter coming into fall camp. Also, while at the beginning of last season compared to 2015, the Oline had one returning starter, and Warriner looked like a genius. This season, with only one starter needing replaced, the results are, at best, disappointing. The extra duty of OC took it's toll. There's a lot of blame to share, and Beck definitely deserves a metric-butt-ton, but Warriner should not be excluded by any means
