2000 Draft Class - It can always be worse:

Landing a franchise QB by itself easily puts it over 2000 where our best pick was a decent FS who wasn't signed to a second contract. That's an utterly atrocious draft.

2009 was way worse

2016 was pretty awful considering how recent it was and we lost Bradberry.

If you include outside factors 2016 was by far the worst. I think every Panther fan wanted one of the two Henry’s with our first pick and Gettlefug decided to use our top pick on a small school back up DT (DT was arguably our strongest position group at the time) and then triple dip on boom or bust CBs. Did Sandland ever even catch a football in a Panthers uniform?
 

His fug up with Norman basically caused him to tank the entire draft. 15-1 to 6-10 and missing the playoffs is quite the accomplishment. Don’t see how you can argue another draft was worse.

Ah, the days where it was socially acceptable to wear a white t-shirt tucked into khaki shorts. Lol David Newton

Charlie Dayton in 2000 and Charlie Dayton in 2015 looked identical

Add that and 2019 together and it’s not surprising that we struggled to finish 3-24 the past three years. At least we have Burns 3 more years before we can’t re-sign him. 😉 

I doubt Burns goes anywhere.  Players like playing for Rhule.

Mr Chris Jones went 35th overall, not long after Bulter. Imagine Jones on this DL of Brown, Burns, Reddick, YGM..

Thanks Gman for having a weirdo size fetish, you freak.

Still would have been a luxury pick. Olsen and Stew were both aging vets coming towards the ends of their contracts. We had just double dipped on Star and Short two years prior.

Gettleman used our first pick in back to back drafts on our strongest positional groups on the team, Linebacker and Defensive tackle. A team in a Super Bowl window cannot afford to take guys with first round picks that you know have no chance of starting. That’s just terrible management.

    • But seriously, we gotta stop running Howell so much. 112 yards is nice, but 15 carries is too much. He's had double digit carries every game so far. I know he said he wanted to run more this season, but honestly 3-4 designed runs for him to keep the D honest is probably the right number. Another 3-4 scrambles. That's 6-8 carries. That feels about right. He's more athletic than most gave him credit for being coming into this season, but he's not Lamar Jackson by any stretch of the imagination. We're running him too much.
    • I agree that ESPN is anti Panthers, but I think the reason has little to do with politics or morality. ESPN like most media companies when covering sports, treats any smaller media market team without a big media star like dog poo. I am so sick of ESPN sucking the dick of the NFC East with wall to wall coverage of their team's practice squads when the entire division has basically been garbage for over a decade, meanwhile if we're not sporting the likes of a Cam Newton, the Panthers get David Newton attempting to do whatever it is that he does every so often, but not so you'd really notice. If you ever really wanna know which teams ESPN gives fug all about, just watch the draft and take note of which teams are drafting when they go to commercial.  Those are the teams they don't care about, one of which is almost always us.
    • that was clearly downed by 1 at the 12 yard line.
