2013 Draft Flashback: Panthers Landed a Beast

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

We have known this since week 1 of the 2013 season but its still nice to see other recognize it. It's also slightly entertaining to see how other teams screwed the pooch.

I can't really argue with Alonzo and Lacy being ranked above our Star:

Exclusive NFL Tracking - Beasts and Busts from Last Year's Draft
3. DT Star Lotulelei (CAR) - Fit perfectly into the defense from the start, and an absolute steal even in the first round.  The defensive tackle out of Utah proved to be a playmaker for the next several years.

Looking at the 'Beast' list there are a couple mid to late round surprises. For instance, Kenny Stills in the 5th and CB Ryan Logan. I'm not surprised CB Jonathan Banks ended up playing well.

Moving to the Busts, what is going on in Miami? They trade up for a bust in Jordan (though he could still put it together) and this last line is the clincher:

10. Mike Gillislee (MIA)-The Florida native failed to even make special teams, which caused him to settle onto the bench where he could socialize with all of the other Dolphins draft busts.

Ouch! The Cowboys didn't fair much better, getting two players on the list including this guy:

6. CB B.W. Webb (DAL)-Expected to be good enough for a starting coverage spot, Webb failed to come through even in special teams. This letdown led to Dallas having the worst defense versus the pass in the team's history.

Finally, aren't the Bucs still counting on this guy:

7. QB Mike Glennon (TB)-Even as a 3rd round pick, the quarterback did not reach any level of success in his first season. It might have been his last chance to start in the league. Wasted pick.

Oh that's right...Josh McCown is the Bucs savior now. Yeah good luck with that.
