Panther Fans Select a Mammoth Tackle in Round 6!

Don't Mock the Draft, Decide It RD 6: Cornelius Lucas, OT

This PantherNation Fan Draft is turning out to be one that should make David Gettleman envious.  We can only hope it goes this way.  And thanks to the guys here at CCC for organizing such a great way to see who PantherNation wants. 

Ya’ll (or is it all ya’ll?) have selected: Mach 7, Brandin Cooks, at Pick #28, then a Huge Man in Jack Mewhort at Tackle in Round 2, an incredible up and coming CB in Pierre Desire in Round 3, Back-Yard Baller in Michael Campanaro in Round 4, hometown standout LB in Prince Shembo in Round 5 and now a mammoth diamondin the rough in Cornelius Lucas in Round 6.  I’m telling you this guy is a “Blue Goose” in the late rounds.  Had he not fractured his foot while training for the Combine, he would easily be projected in the top 100 Picks.  To me, that is what you do in the late rounds, you take someone that slid due to temporary setbacks. 

Think about this, he is 6’8, 316 lbs. with 37-inch arms and an 88-inch wingspan.  Watch the clip below to see how he moves very well for a man his size and how he gets out and finishes blocks.  Oh, did you hear he was recently cleared by Dr. James Andrews?  He’s ready to roll now and I’ve been grabbing him anywhere from the 5th to the 6th Rounds in my weekly DraftTek Draft simulations.  Check me out there at and follow me on Twitter @PanthersDrafter. 

Now let’s turn our attention to Round 7.  What position do you want to see, Panther Fans?  We could use a Safety, a Corner, another Olineman or a Dlineman.  Your call.  Let me hear you!
