I was trying to decide which was the best draft in Panthers history the other day and since Marty has been here for all but the first few it's pretty much the same question. Anyways, I could not come up with a solid answer, I could see arguments being made for several depending on how you define "best".

I would probably argue that 2001 is the best. It wasn't the best in terms of longevity or lasting impact on the team, but it terms of talent evaluation it was pretty damn solid. Our first three picks that year all became All-Pros:

Round 1 (11) - Dan Morgan

Round 2 (44) - Kris Jenkins

Round 3 (74) - Steve Smith

The three of them have combined for 7 All-Pro and 10 Pro-Bowl selections. They were also three key parts of the only Panthers squad to ever make it to the Super Bowl. The rest of that draft didn't pan out, but IMO the success of the first 3 picks makes it the best in Panthers/Hurney history.


Who wants to take this one?
