The Carolina Panthers have had a wide-ranging draft history.

Draft season is almost upon us, and with the Panthers figuring to be in the thick of things in the upcoming one, that got me thinking: Who were the biggest draft steals for the Carolina Panthers? This was a hard list to narrow down to only three. After all, the organization has drafted so many impactful players in such a short period of time. However, when looking at the list, there was no doubt that the Panthers were able to get value with these picks.

I will offer a full disclaimer. This list is very defense-oriented. Of course that kind of makes sense. The Carolina Panthers have had very successful defenses over the years. This was in part due to value draft picks. Some of these names may bring back good memories of Panthers teams of the past. There is no doubt that for an organization that has had a short existence, they have a ton of history. With the way the current roster is shaping up, we could be in line for some more magical moments very soon.

Without further ado, we take a look at the top three draft steals for the Carolina Panthers. Agree? Disagree? Sound off below.
