The Carolina Panthers made the NFL’s biggest trade so far this offseason on Friday when they sent the Chicago Bears four draft picks and wide receiver D.J. Moore for the No. 1 pick in next month’s draft.
Obviously, with Bryce Young and C.J. Stroud on the board, Carolina will be looking to draft a quarterback, and it will not be easy to decide between both college standouts.
According to Joe Person, who covers the Panthers, the team may actually trade that No. 1 pick depending on which QB it chooses to go with.
Panthers now control the draft. A source said Scott Fitterer and Frank Reich have conviction on a couple of QBs at the top. If they end up liking more than 1, they could potentially trade down, source said.

Such a move could net the Panthers a starter, as well as a high pick that could become Young or Stroud.
There has been some talk that the Indianapolis Colts, who have the fourth pick, could make a move to acquire the first pick, as at least one analyst feels Young would be a nice fit for them.
Plenty of people consider the University of Alabama star the best QB prospect in the draft, as he is a deft passer, can navigate out of the pocket and has a nice feel for the game.
However, he stands less than six-feet tall and weighs under 200 pounds, and there simply have been very few signal-callers in the modern NFL who have had such a modest stature yet managed to succeed big-time.
Stroud, meanwhile, is 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, and he finished third in the voting for the Heisman Trophy this past season.
The Panthers can offer either Young or Stroud the opportunity to play for a team where they will have minimal pressure to develop and win now.
