Bryce Young has canceled his remaining NFL team visits. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that Young is believed to be the No. 1 overall pick for Carolina. The Panthers saw Young at Alabama’s Pro Day and were impressed by his performance.
Alabama QB Bryce Young has canceled his remaining pre-draft visits, per sources — another sign to back up belief within the league that the 2021 Heisman Trophy winner will be the #Panthers’ pick at No. 1 overall.

Carolina has an offensive-minded head coach (Frank Reich) and several talented offensive pieces, but it needs a quarterback to take it next level. Young was a massive success in two years as a starter for Alabama.
He guided the Crimson Tide to a Southeastern Conference Championship in 2021 and set single-season school records. Young was a two-time team captain and a Heisman Memorial Trophy winner. If he is taken No. 1, Young would give Nick Saban his first-ever top pick in the common draft era.
