NFL Rumors: QB Is The Apple Of The Carolina Panthers Eye In The 2023 NFL Draft

The Carolina Panthers have already made a major move this off-season, and with plenty of talent along the offensive side of the ball, they've got plenty to look forward too, but with the draft coming up, they have a massive chance to hit a home run. 

If they get their way, that home run will come in the form of C.J. Stroud, who is reportedly 'the apple of the Panthers eye' heading into the 2023 NFL Draft, so much so that they are certainly considering trading all the way up to No. 1 to draft him. 

Stroud ended his two years as a starter at Ohio State with an incredible 8,123 passing yards to go along with 85 Touchdowns and 12 Interceptions, and with plenty of physical tools and talent, there's a chance he can become a star in the NFL in the right system.
