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.

Jeno James had two very solid years for us in 2003 and 2004 and Grant had a pick in the SB. Together they're a better tandem than any tandem you could get from 1999, but neither compares to Rucker.

Sandland didn't even make final cuts that September, let alone ever catch a pass here.

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.
