posted by Tank Spencer -

The Panthers haven't always made a splash in the draft, but in their 22 years, there have been some great picks. I looked at the Panthers' draft history and came up with the top 5 best picks by the franchise in each of the first 3 rounds, and then the top 5 taken in rounds 4-7.
