Marc Ross' drafting history

People expect so much out of the draft, it's hilarious.

True but when was the last time has a big time FA turned a team from pretenders to contender. Tampa was the darlings of the NFL during the off season and although they swept us their record was the same as ours.

I think the one thing to gather from this is that it's really hard to draft. You could basically build an 8-8 team through the draft. The more time goes by the better and more accurate scouting gets, and it's becoming increasingly hard to find players with potential in the later rounds.

Also we have a tendency to overrate our own first rounders. Kenny Phillips a bust? Okay. But if he were our pick most everybody would be taking about how he was another home run for Hurney.

I had been thinking the same thoughts about him being a boss evaluator. He picked Amukamara and Austin who blow. His entire 2011 draft is basically useless. So he's getting praise for signing 1 UDFA and picking Nicks and JPP in the first round. Hello JPP is a freak, not that hard to evaluate a freak. Honestly his drafts look worse than Hurney drafts. I guess if we need a WR he will pick a baller.

Chad Jones got horribly injured in a Car Crash and was never the same, can't fault Ross for that

JPP was ridiculously raw coming out of school.

Hurney was a good GM for the most part. His downfall was the free agent aspect of the job. A lot of Marc Ross is just hype. I'm sure there are several candidates that can do just as good as a job for us than Ross

Solid work bro.

I thought he had everything to do with that front 7... But now I won't be upset at all after seeing that.

In fact, get Hurney back in here to fix this pile of poo he has us in with the cap

BTW you negged the OP, pretty sure that was in error.

He didn't pick anyone, without some inside knowledge you really do not know who he wanted in these past drafts.

curious to see a list of gettleman acquisitions. he spent years doing college scouting before moving to pro personnel and he's worked with a lot of successful teams.

I'd say his downfall was handicapping the franchise by investing in an uber Foxball roster and hiring a non Foxball coaching staff coupled with a dynamic QB

He has been part of 13 playoff teams, 6 Superbowl teams and 3 Superbowl winners in 25 years.

Just to add a little info, over 17 years the Panthers have seen 4 playoff teams and 1 Superbowl appearance.
