Every second round pick in Panthers history


Recommended Posts

Honestly, from 2013 forward? Not bad. And depending on the continued growth of Gross Matos and Chinn, pretty damn good.

Not to mention Muhammad, Jenkins, Rucker, Minter, Grant, and even Marshall (he was a solid nickel).

Wow that is actually much better than I remember. Foster, Jenkins, Muhammad, Grant, Rucker, Chinn, YGM(maybe), Curtis, Bradberry....huh that's like around 50% which is something like 30% higher than it was in my head.

There's a trend in what you're seeing here.

That's actually better than my impression of our success rate in the 2nd round...

That stretch from 2003 to 2013... Good god.

Ditto.

DeShaun Foster is kind of a dilemma for me.

I'd certainly never say he was a bad pick. He had some really good years with us and I think if we'd have relied more on him than Stephen Davis in the Super Bowl, we might have won it.

But he was picked ahead of Clinton Portis, primarily because the son of one of his college coaches was on our staff at the time if I recall correctly.

Was that the right choice?

The big knock on Foster out of college was he fumbled alot.  He never really did that much in the NFL.  But he was never really that good of a back where you could just lean on him for 20 - 25 carries a game either so maybe if he would have gotten the ball more he would have.  He was really a stretch zone runner and he went to a power gap scheme team.

Ehh you can split hairs about every player that way. Behind every player on that list I’m sure there was another player we could have drafted that was better than they were. He was a good rb for us and it was a good pick imo.

Honestly looks okay from a wide perspective. Kinda surprised, actually. Would be interesting to compare with another team.

Had problems staying healthy and could not hang onto the football at all. It was the right choice at the time since he complimented Stephen Davis.

For a lot of the early years, it seemed like anytime we had a choice between two players, we picked the wrong one.

The best examples of that of course are taking Kerry Collins over Steve McNair and Tshimanga Biakabutuka over Eddie George.
