In case you missed it, which is highly doubtful if you pay any attention to the NFL, the Carolina Panthers made a trade with the Chicago Bears for the first overall pick. With a quarterback-centric coaching staff, the Panthers will seemingly have their pick of the litter of the gunslingers in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft. Right now, everyone is left to predict who the Carolina front office will draft, and who new head coach Frank Reich and quarterbacks coach Josh McCown (both former NFL QBs themselves) will want to mentor and mold moving forward. There appears to be four leading candidates for the top overall pick in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft, at this point, all of whom will certainly hear their name called early on draft night. There are rumors that the Panthers could even trade back, now that they are “in control”, and holding the top selection.
