The NFL Draft is set to begin on April 27, and plenty of rumors are starting to fly around about what might happen.
One thing we know for sure is that the Carolina Panthers are picking first, and they plan to select a quarterback.
But, which quarterback remains up in the air.
Many people think the Panthers are deciding between three options for their first pick: Bryce Young, C.J. Stroud, and Anthony Richardson.
Yet, it is starting to become more and more clear that Young will be the first player selected.
According to Tom Pelissero, Young has canceled all of his remaining pre-draft visits.
That is a strong sign the Panthers let him know he will be their pick.
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.

Young is a former Heisman Trophy winner and had an elite college career.
The only knock against him is that he is too small for the NFL.
Many people wonder if he can withstand the punishment of a 17-game season.

It seems like many Panthers fans are thrilled with their soon-to-be franchise QB.

Carolina traded a ton to move up to first overall, so they cannot afford to miss on this pick.
But, not everyone thinks Young should be the Panthers’ pick.
If Panthers take Bryce Young I think it would be a mistake

Some say the best ability is availability, and Young has to be available.
If he can stay healthy, there is no reason to believe Young will not be a great NFL player.
