Panthers Secure First Pick in the 2011 NFL Draft

It’s now official, the Panthers will be picking first in April’s NFL Draft. After wins by Cincinnati and Denver Sunday, the Panthers secured league’s worst record.

The Broncos (4-11) rallied with 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to beat Houston 24-23, while the Bengals (4-11) got four touchdown passes from Carson Palmer to beat San Diego 34-20 in the snow for their second straight win.

That meant with one week left in the season, nobody can match Carolina (2-13) for futility in the NFL this season.

The only other time the Panthers have had the No. 1 pick — before their inaugural season in 1995 — they traded it away for more picks.
