Best choice: Ryan Kalil. Center didn’t seem like a huge need when the Panthers used a second-round pick on Kalil in 2007, and he did very little as a rookie. But the guy has turned into a consistent Pro Bowler. We won’t weigh this down by going into the labor situation, although the Panthers placed a franchise tag on Kalil. They’re still looking for the first true franchise quarterback in their short history. But they’ve got a franchise center to snap the ball.

Worst choice: Dwayne Jarrett. We’re only going back five years, so Keary Colbert is not eligible and he at least had a few productive moments. But the Panthers compounded that mistake by taking another USC receiver in the second round in 2007. Colbert should have been a major warning sign.

On the bubble: We’ll go with a tie between quarterback Jimmy Clausen and receiver Armanti Edwards. It’s tough to call anyone a bust after just one year, but the production of Clausen and Edwards as rookies makes that very tempting. We’ll give them a pass for the moment because they were emblematic of former coach John Fox’s refusal to embrace a youth movement. They get a fresh start with new coach Ron Rivera, and we’ll see how that works out.

Jarrett = nail on the head
Dis-Honorable mention = Nate Salley, Corey Irvin

I don't completely agree that Clausen hasn't been given a chance. Agreed, that the playcalling last year was lackluster to say the least and Clausen was a rookie, Clausen still sucked in all areas.

Read the situational stats and name me just one positive....if you can.

I haven't seen Edwards play, therefore I cant say anything on his performance

I often find it amusing that people hold clausen up as if he was a top 10 pick...how much do we really need to expect from a second round QB?

Not much, but something a little better than the horrid stats he put up.

I would at least like to see the TD/INT ratio better than 1:3......

Yea i know, a second round pick on a shitty team that can hardly run the ball. I had no expectations and he didnt look any worse than matt moore his first couple games.

only a pooty team b/c Clausen played like a bad undrafted rookie.

Carolina had zero pass attack the majority of the year and Carolina still managed to run better than over half the teams in the NFL. They did that b/c they are good.

Not to down Kalil, but David Gettis might turn out to be a bigger steal.
