Sparked by a post in the Panthers forum. Time to eat some crow.

Cam Newton - didn't want him, looks to be a future star

Matt Moore - thought he would be the next great undrafted QB

Dwayne Jarrett - thought he would be a perennial pro bowler

Aaron Curry - thought he would be a star, safest pick in the draft, etc

Golden Tate - proclaimed him the next Steve Smith

Mardy Gilyard - thought he would do great things

I also thought MM would be the next great undrafted QB
Thought the same as OP on G. Tate
Didn't think Jarrett would be a perennial Pro Bowler, but I thought he'd be a good solid #2 to take over for Moose.
Thought EB would be the next Freeney (even bought his jersey ugh)
Thought Naanee woul be a great addition, at least a good #3

I literally broke my TV remote when I heard Clausen's name announced because I wanted Tate sooooo bad. I mean he's shown flashes of being a play maker but not what I expect of him.

I also thought Sam Bradford would get sacked into a coma his rookie year and be a constant injury magnet his entire career. Proved out to be tougher than I thought.

my take on gilyard before the draft

[quote name='R0CKnR0LLA']I know alot of people are high on Gilyard but he reminds me too much of Drew Carter. Great straight line speed but poor at route running and getting separation.[/QUOTE]

Duke Robinson, loved the pick

thought he had a chance to be a day 1 starter but definitely by year two he's starting and a stud at that


f**k me

thought Duke would be alright but figured he dropped for a reason

I'll one up you on that though.

Thought Bernadeau would be a stud.

I was stoked on Eric Shelton (pick 54) in 2005. Now looking back on it I would do anything to have Vincent Jackson (pick 61) instead. 2007 I loved the Jarrett and Ryne Robinson picks.
