I really hope that David Gettleman doesn't do the ole Hurney trick of trading extremely valuable picks for bullshit in the 2nd and 3rd round.

If ya really wanna depress yourself sometime, take a look back at all of our drafts and check out who we could have had with each of those "bust" picks discussed in this thread.

rashard anderson, biakabatuka, kerry collins, carruth, peters...pretty much everyone drafted in the first round before hurney/fox

This. Drafts used to be a big "so what" for the Panthers. In the 90s, our first rounders were:

Kerry Collins - here for a few seasons before killing the locker room and quitting

Tyrone Poole - lasted three years before leaving for Indianapolis

Blake Brockermeyer - A pretty forgettable tackle who battled injuries for four seasons before we let him leave in Free Agency

Tim Biakabutuka - Played in 50 games over 6 seasons, and scored only 14 touchdowns over that time.

Rae Carruth - Even if he hadn't been a murderer, he was still a crappy NFL receiver who wouldn't start on our current roster.

Jason Peter - Gave us three injury-filled, 'roided up seasons.

Rashard Anderson - Never started, and played just one year before getting cut after violating the league's substance abuse policy

Dan Morgan - A tackling machine, he couldn't stay healthy. Played in 59 games over 7 seasons.

What's funny is, Hurney could never draft a second rounder who stuck (Kalil excepted), but before he got here, our second rounders included Muhsin Muhammad, Mike Minter, Mike Rucker, Deon Grant, and Kris Jenkins.

Here's to hoping that Gettleman drafts like Hurney in the first, and Capers/Seiffert in the second. :)

Jason Peter or Tim Biakabatuka.

Biakabatuka was not a bust per se, the man got hurt after being markedly effective.

The same goes for Dan Morgan.

Go back and look at the very next pick after what we gave up for Gilbert....ouch!

That said, recently, it's probably EB, AE, or Shelton.
