Carolina Panthers 2009 Draft: Glover Quinn over Mike Goodson (No. 111)

The Carolina Panthers took Mike Goodson, running back from Texas A&M with this pick. They added another versatile player to a backfield that was already stacked going into there 2010 season.

Goodson actually played pretty well for the Panthers in his second season. He had 103 rushes for 452 yards and three touchdowns. He also caught 40 passes for 310 yards.

Following the 2010 season, Goodson never carried the ball for the Panthers again. He went on to play Oakland Raiders and New York Jets. But the player was out of the league for good in 2013.

He wasn’t a complete bust, especially at the 111th pick, but Carolina could have taken a franchise safety with the pick. Glover Quin was drafted one pick later by the Houston Texans. He came into the league as a cornerback but made the move to the backend after two years in the NFL.

Moving to safety was the best thing that happened to Quin. He spent four seasons in Houston totaling five interceptions and 314 total tackles. This was followed by a move to the Detroit Lions.

He started all 16 games and had seven interceptions, 10 passes defended, and 73 total tackles in just his second year with the organization. Quin made the Pro Bowl and became one of the best safeties in the league.

He played the rest of his career with the Lions and continued to produce. He eventually called it a career and retired from the NFL in 2019.

If the Panthers would have drafted Quinn it would have given them some much needed secondary help. He could have been a solid player for a decade and one pick they really missed out on.
