The Carolina Panthers are reportedly undecided on what quarterback to take after trading with the Chicago Bears to acquire the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL draft.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Alabama quarterback Bryce Young is favored by Panthers owner David Tepper, while Ohio State signal-caller C.J. Stroud may be preferred by head coach Frank Reich.
“Just hung up the phone with someone in the organization and I said, ‘There’s a belief that David Tepper likes Bryce Young, Frank Reich likes C.J. Stroud,” Schefter said on SportsCenter. “And they said, ‘We love all these quarterbacks and we’ve got 48 days to make a decision on which one we’ll be taking.'”
ESPN’s David Newton broke down the Panthers’ thinking further.
