Did the Panthers reveal their plan for the No. 1 pick?

The Carolina Panthers sent a huge contingent to Columbus on Wednesday to check out the Ohio State pro day. Even owner David Tepper traveled to investigate the Buckeyes and potential No. 1 overall pick, QB C.J. Stroud.

The Panthers traded up from No. 9 to the top spot for a reason. And it is easy to see that reason is Stroud. New Panthers QB coach Josh McCown might have revealed that publicly during the pro day aftermath.

Cameras captured McCown and Stroud, along with other Panthers staffers including senior assistant Jim Caldwell, talking about playing some basketball together.

“We’ll find a court, play some horse,” McCown smiled as he told Stroud. “Maybe when you live in Charlotte, we’ll find a court.”


The key word here is “when”. McCown didn’t say “if”.
