The Carolina Panthers have made one of the biggest moves of the off-season so far.
They traded a large package, including the ninth overall pick, to the Chicago Bears for the first overall pick.
Carolina made the move because they believe there is a franchise cornerstone in this draft.
The Panthers are in need of a quarterback, and now they plan to address that issue in the draft.
The two top quarterback options are Alabama’s Bryce Young and Ohio State’s CJ Stroud.
It seems likely that they would be the first two players off the board, but in what order?
Colin Cowherd believes the Panthers traded up to pick up Young.
“Carolina is going to take Bryce Young and this is why.”

He thinks Young is the top quarterback in the draft, and one the Panthers could make for many years.
Based on college production, Young is a far better player.
He was the Heisman Trophy winner in 2021 and has 80 career touchdown passes to 12 interceptions.
The only knock on Young is his size.
He is a small quarterback, and some scouts fear that Young will not be able to withstand a long NFL season.
While Young may not be the prototypical NFL quarterback, he has all the talent you look for in a future star.
There is a lot of pressure on the Panthers to get this pick right.
They cannot afford to miss out on the draft with all the capital they have left.
Carolina has her eyes set on the future superstar and all her fans hope she makes the right choice.
