Picks traded away in the Hurney era

55 posts in this topic

The question was when we last kept all our picks.

 

Based on what I found, under Marty Hurney, we never stood pat, though technically the 2002, 2004 and 2007 trades were all 'trade downs' that netted extra picks.  Closest we came to just picking our slate was 2006 when only one pick was traded away.  The 2008 draft was the one where Hurney really started getting on the wrong side of his transactions.

 

In the 2001 draft, the last before Hurney became GM, we kept all our picks and got an extra 7th rounder from the Eagles in exchange for TE Luther Broughton.

 

Of course, Hurney wasn't the only one to trade away picks.  Dom Capers infamously traded our 1st rounders from 1999 and 2000 for DT Sean Gilbert. And while Gilbert wasn't awful, he certainly wasn't worth two 1st rounders.

yeah good stuff, a lot of those trades look like a push (equally bad for everyone).

 

That Armanti trade surely is at the top of the list of ones we'd like to have back, but the Pats even wasted the pick. I think that Ras-I dude is out of the NFL altogether.

Pie for the effort. Good job. Probably took you awhile.

Didn't take as long as you might think.

 

Perused the draft and trade history pages on Panthers.com and looked up the draft records for the traded picks.

 

 

Doesn't look too bad from that research...

 

Pre-2008, you could argue we were breaking even.

 

From 2008 forward though... :(

We stand pat last season minus a third and Playoffs...

Hurney tried to outsmart the room each year and only made himself look foolish with all this dealing.. He clearly has a gambling problem.

No matter the distance from the draft...that Armanti Edwards trade is beyond awful..

At least Otah, Everette Brown, had some value pre draft...Armanti was just going to be a project to get him to AT BEST..an avg WR.

After Armanti's combine it was clear he was an outstanding athlete..at QB. Ifhe ran a 4.2 id understand it but when the move happened I thought we were getting a great player..But it was Aramanti..I facepalmed.

Although not a trade I think division 3 talent Amini over all SEC LT Cordy Glenn will haunt us if Gross retires and we do no get a LT in this draft.

Last season was Gettleman, but the picks we didn't have were traded by Hurney.

 

Hurney absolutely loved to trade.  Gettleman?  Not so much.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
