Who will be the first to be called by the Panthers?

Four times in the past five years, the quarterback has been the first player to be selected in the NFL Draft, and all indications are that he will be again this year. Will it be Bryce Young or CJ Stroud?

The Carolina Panthers made a big deal with the Chicago Bears to get their hands in first place to get their quarterback ready to play as soon as possible.

Panthers have signed veteran Andy Dalton to a two-year contract who can mentor the young quarterback. The Panthers appear to be particularly interested in OSU’s CJ Stroud and University of Alabama’s Bryce Young, but they also have their eye on Anthony Richardson from the Florida Gators and Will Levis from Kentucky.

Since the end of last season, seven teams have already traded their first-round picks. There may be more changes between now and Thursday evening.

In addition to the Panthers, the Texans and Colts, who are recruiting in the second and fourth ranks, are looking for a playmaker for the upcoming seasons. Texans can also be tempted to look to defending fighting quarterback Will Anderson.

At number three, the Arizona Cardinals would rather look for a player who would satisfy quarterback Kyler Murray by demanding a wide receiver or offensive lineman. They can also trade this selection, if they think they can improve in some other way. Their defense needs help in multiple positions, whether it’s a defensive back or a quarterback chasing to replace retired veteran JJ Watt.

Canadian record?

Six names stand out among Canadian players eligible to participate in the draft. If they were all called up, it would be a record, as the previous mark is four Canadians claimed in 2014 (the year Laurent Duvernay-Tardif was selected) and in 2021.
