Bryce Young is not only known for his exemplary play on the field but also for the way he carries himself off of it.

He’s received praise from his former college coach Nick Saban numerous times as one of the finest players he’s ever coached, and now his current Carolina Panthers teammates are experiencing his personality.

Young wasn’t particularly known as being the stereotypical vocal leader who gives speeches to his teams at the end of every quarter, but rather one who leads by example and creates foundations for relationships.

Now that he’s been acquainted with his Panthers teammates, Young is beginning to receive many rinnging endorsements from his teammates.

Veteran safety Xavier Woods made an appearence on NFL Total Access, becomming the latest to praise Young.

“Just the swagger,” Woods replied. “Just his persona. How he carries himself. Just not only in the weight room, but on the practice field, man. He got that silent swagger. You can definitely tell that he knows, that he’s top-tier. But he’s humble with it, man.

“Being a first-round draft pick, it’s gonna come with a lot of expectations and whatnot. But I’m pretty sure he knows he can carry it—and just the way he carries himself, it shows.”
