Carolina Panthers 2010 Draft: Barry Church over Jordan Pugh (No. 202)

The Panthers selected defensive back Jordan Pugh out of Texas A&M with the 202nd pick. He didn’t do much for the team and only played two seasons in Carolina.

In his two seasons in, the player only started three games, securing one interception and 31 total tackles. After the 2011 season the Panthers cut Pugh and he spent two more years with the Washington Redskins. He hasn’t been in the league since 2013.

Barry Church went undrafted in 2010 and wound up getting picked up by the Dallas Cowboys. He only started four games in his first three seasons, but in his fourth, he took off.

In his first season as a full-time starter he had 135 tackles, one interception, and three forced fumbles. Over the next four seasons, Church put up similar numbers and was a big part of the defensive success of the Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars.

In 2017 he caught four interceptions for the Jaguars and was part of their 2017 defense that emerged as the league’s most dominant. Hindsight is a wonderful thing to have in the NFL. In this perfect world. the Panthers would have seen Kam Chancellor and Church form a tandem that would have been incredibly difficult to stop.
