Curious as to what people think Carolina will do with the #1 pick in the draft.
Thanks. Are these specific to Carolina? Because I'd have to think that betting on someone other than a QB is a terrible, terrible bet. (If Carolina trades the pick, is the bet void, I mean?)Have some betting odds courtesy of BetMGM...
CJ Stroud -250
Anthony Richardson +300
Bryce Young +350
Will Levis +2500
Jalen Carter +4000
Will Anderson +8000
Tyree Wilson +10,000
Everyone else +15,000 or worse
Those are the current updated odds if you want to bet on who the #1 overall pick will be. So it assumes that Carolina has the #1 pick & bakes in whatever likelihood they would trade the pick, which has to be remarkably small, especially to a non-QB wanting team.Thanks.

I think Stroud is the more likely pick, but I have to say signing Andy Dalton (who was actually very solid last year) moves the needle a bit in the Richardson direction. Having a veteran backup is good business regardless of the rookie you're selecting, but a guy that can start games and keep you afloat might be an indication they don't necessarily intend for the rookie to play, and Stroud would start day one.They should get Stroud but they'll psych themselves out with Richardson.
This is where I'm at, too. Neither Young nor Stroud are blue chip prospects ... they require some projection. And Carolina will say, "Hell, since we're projecting" ... and they'll tell themselves 85-90% of Richardson is probably better than 100% of either of the other two, etc.My gut said AR when I heard the news the Panthers traded up and I’m sticking with it. It’s hard to argue with that kind of athletic ability. Definitely someone you can build an offense around. Florida kid going to Carolina. Just makes sense.
I don’t think they’d go too far down. With the questions about Carter’s legal, maturity, and work ethic, team are really looking at 2 elite disruptive defenders - Anderson & Wilson. I think Arizona has to walk away with one of those guys to kick start the defensive rebuild.I wonder if the Cardinals are looking to move out of 3. They're pretty married to Kyler & might be able to get some good value to move down to someone who wants the Panthers/Texans leftovers, but could hurdle the Colts.
