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

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.

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

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.

This. I wasn't too happy when Willis went off the board. Glad I got proved wrong.

Joey Harrington (wanted him #2 when we got Pep)
Drew Carter
Matt Moore
Thomas Davis (when healthy). I wanted Derrick Johnson more.

I hated the Thomas Davis pick.
I hated the Jon Beason pick.
I hated the Jonathon Stewart pick.
I hated the Jimmy Clausen pick.

Well, I guess I got one right...
