Bryce Young appears to be consensus No 1 pick to Panthers after bold move before NFL Draft

Apr 17, 2023

If Bryce Young wasn’t already considered the Carolina Panthers’ top selection with their No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, his move on Monday almost solidified it.

Through the widespread speculation that the Panthers were going to select Young with their top pick, the 2021 Heisman Trophy winner reportedly canceled all of his remaining pre-draft visits to other NFL teams.

This move seems to confirm to experts what they already thought: The Panthers have already told Young they will take him first overall on April 27.

However, this wasn’t always the case. C.J. Stroud from Ohio State seemed to be the favorite to go to the Panthers once they traded with the Chicago Bears for the pick. But Young’s name was floated more and more in draft rumors since the trade went down.
