Based on reports from NFL insider Albert Breer, the selection is a no-brainer. " The Panthers will make Bryce Young the first pick in the NFL Draft in about two hours. And as for what stood out with him—his football intelligence and ability to process really separated Young from the pack."
Many around the league believe that Young has always been the number-one option at quarterback. However, as the draft drew closer, insiders began looking at other selections for the first pick.
