12 Biggest Draft Day Mistakes in Carolina Panthers' History
Mike McCarn/Associated Press

The Carolina Panthers' time in the NFL hasn't been very long.  That's not to say the organization hasn't made its fair share of draft day mistakes.  Some of the errors made could not be seen early on, but some of the trades that were made did enough to set the team back.  The drafts of 2009 and 2010 were perhaps the worst in franchise history.  

In other cases, players did not pan out, play up to expectations or found their career derailed because of a total lapse in judgement.  On paper, they may have looked good, but in the end the selection was not right for Carolina.

It should be noted the picks presented on this slideshow were the products of poor judgment calls on the part of Bill Polian and Marty Hurney.  It's too early to nitpick a Dave Gettleman selection, but there is a possibility he will have a mistake pick or trade that will make a future list.

What makes a poor selection even more glaring is the fact there were productive players still available. The next several slides will highlight the low lights of the Panthers' biggest draft day mistakes.  Proceed with caution, the following is not pretty.
