The Carolina Panthers sent a ton (literally, a ton) of representatives to CJ Stroud's Pro Day at Ohio State on Tuesday. The Panthers own the No. 1 pick (acquired in a trade from the Chicago Bears) and are going to be pretty busy over the next month deciding whomst to select with that No. 1 pick. Stroud was the one they were getting to know first.
Panthers GM Scott Fitterer said of Stroud: "Really knows football. It's not too big for him. He's very comfortable being in that environment and being in command." Fitterer also said the team's brass had a dinner with the likely first-rounder.
Who the Panthers are taking with the first pick is anyone's guess, but the two seemed pretty damn chummy.
The Panthers will do their due diligence on other top candidates as well, traveling to Alabama on Thursday for Bryce Young, and Kentucky on Friday for Will Levis. That's a lot of wining and dining. In fact, Panthers' execs had dinner with Young on Wednesday night.
