Team Dream Draft Results - NFC SOUTH



To keep this out of pure fantasy drafting, there are no trades proposed. This is an attempt to take a look at each team’s draft capital, assess where their roster stands after free agency and prior to the draft, and attempt to put together the best team draft possible. But most importantly, rooted in reality. That is, using SNS’ Offensive and Defensive Tier Rankings (available for FREE at Patreon / Stack ‘N Shed!) as a guide, an individual team draft will be conducted with the prospects that fit the team and is likely to be available at that draft pick. In other words, Detroit will be unlikely to get CJ Stroud at #6 and Jalen Carter at #18, so Team Dream Drafts won’t go there! Finally, like the actual draft, once a prospect is selected, he is off the board and cannot be re-drafted. This draft was completed on Friday, April 7 and does not consider any NFL transactions completed after that date.


NFC SOUTH


Carolina

Total picks – 6

1 / 1 CJ Stroud / QB / Ohio State

2 / 39 Zay Flowers / WR / Boston College

3 / 93 Luke Wypler / IOL / Ohio State

4 / 114 Owen Pappoe / LB / Auburn

4 / 132 Daniel Scott / S / California

5 / 145 John Ojukwu / OL / Boise State


The Panthers traded up to #1 to select their franchise QB. The thought here is that Stroud goes first (over Bryce Young) because of his prototypical size. Flowers will excel out of the slot. Wypler looks to be a multi-year starter at center. Pappoe and Scott offer length and athleticism. Ojukwu is similar to OT Ikem Ekwonu and brings a nasty disposition to the offensive line.



Atlanta

Total picks – 8

1 / 8 Paris Johnson / OT / Ohio State

2 / 44 Jakorian Bennett / CB / Maryland

3 / 75 Dee Winters / LB / TCU

4 / 110 Michael Wilson / WR / Stanford

4 / 113 Deuce Vaughn / RB / Kansas State

5 / 159 Malik Cunningham / QB / Louisville

7 / 224 Steven Jones / CB / Appalachian State

7 / 225 TJ Bass / IOL / Oregon


Johnson profiles as a starting OT from day one in Atlanta. Bennett has great ball skills with the most passes defensed in the nation over the last two years. Winters is athletic and rangy. Wilson has an intriguing blend of size, speed, and agility but possesses inconsistent hands. Vaughn is very undersized but extremely quick and surprisingly tough. Cunningham has marginal size and durability but is athletic, experienced, and productive. Jones profiles as a slot CB. Bass lacks desired athleticism but is tough and physical and plays with a mean streak.



Tampa Bay

Total picks – 8

1 / 19 Will Levis / QB / Kentucky

2 / 50 Olusegun Oluwatimi / IOL / Michigan

3 / 82 Darrell Luter / CB / South Alabama

5 / 153 Andrei Iosivas / WR / Princeton

5 / 175 Marshon Ford / TE / Louisville

6 / 179 Alex Palczewski / OL / Illinois

6 / 181 Jay Ward / S / LSU

6 / 196 Isaiah Land / Edge-LB / Florida A&M


The Bucs signed Baker Mayfield but he isn’t the long-term answer in Tampa. Levis has excellent size, great arm strength, and a quick release. Oluwatimi makes the perfect heir apparent to Ryan Jensen at center. Luter has good length and loose hips and looks like a long-term starter. Iosivas is a great athlete and has huge upside. Ford is an oversized WR with limited in-line blocking upside. Palczewski can play either ORT or OG and his versatility provides needed depth on the OL. Ward figures to primarily play in the slot and cover TEs. Land was dominate on the FCS-level and is this year’s version of James Houston (Detroit).



New Orleans

Total picks – 8

1 / 29 Braeden Daniels / OL / Utah

2 / 40 Andre Carter / Edge / Army

3 / 71 DJ Turner / CB / Michigan

4 / 115 Ji’Ayir Brown / S / Penn State

5 / 146 Payne Durham / TE / Purdue

6 / 165 Daiyan Henley / LB / Washington State

7 / 227 Zach Evans / RB / Mississippi

7 / 257 Aidan O’Connell / QB / Purdue


Daniels is an excellent athlete with light feet and great knee bend and can play either OLT or OG. Carter is raw but has a high ceiling as an Edge Rusher. Turner ran a blazing 4.26 40 at the combine in March and will most likely be a slot CB in the NFL. Brown is a highly instinctual ballhawk who always seems to be near the ball in the air downfield. Durham is a large target with a large catch radius. Henley has great speed and range and matches up well with RBs and TEs in space. Evans is fast and has a similar athletic profile to Nyheim Hines (Buffalo). O’Connell is a smart QB who reads coverages well and looks like a quality NFL backup.
