The Carolina Panthers organization is reportedly torn on who to select with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Panthers traded the No. 9 pick, the No. 61 pick, a first-round pick in 2024, a second-round pick in 2025 and DJ Moore to the Chicago Bears to secure the No. 1 overall pick. The Panthers are considering taking a quarterback with the pick, and Bryce Young and CJ Stroud are two of their top choices. However, the organization is torn between the two.
“There’s a belief that David Tepper loves Bryce Young, Frank Reich likes CJ Stroud,” Schefter said on ESPN. “They said ‘We love all these quarterbacks, and we have 48 days to make a decision on which one we will be taking.’”
