A look back at best and worst first-round picks for each franchise history popped up and a couple of Panthers appeared as the top picks for their franchise - think you can name them? Here's a hint - it shouldn't be too hard.

Here's the full list - a moderately interesting read should you want to check it out.

Dan Marino and Larry Fitzgerald both took the honors for the best picks in Miami Dolphins and Arizona Cardinals history. Hard to argue with either one of those picks. When it's all said and done, you could also probably make a good case for Darrelle Revis as the Jets' representative over Freeman McNeil.

The list was also a reminder of the number of Penn State busts. No, this isn't meant to stir up any fight with the Nitters, but five of the 32 worst picks of all-time, according to the article, were Nittany Lions (Blair Thomas, Ki-Jana Carter, Courtney Brown, Todd Blackledge, and Andre Johnson). Sure it's subjective, but man.

West Virginia also got credit for Randy Moss somehow instead of Marshall.
