NFL prospect Bryce Young roasted for Pro Day pass against no defense as fans say ‘Panthers look away’

BRYCE Young may have dented his chances at going first overall in this year’s NFL Draft at his recent Pro Day.

The Alabama youngster, 21, is widely projected to go in the top three of the draft in Kansas City, Missouri this April.

However, his Pro Day wasn’t without its issues as one clip showed Young seemingly overthrowing a deep ball to an open receiver against no defense.

This air ball prompted one Twitter user to warn the Carolina Panthers, who currently own the top pick, with the comment: “Panthers look away”

Another fan was equally concerned by the clip, writing: “He can’t throw without getting his feet set underneath him.

“That might not sound like a big deal, but go watch Burrow, Allen, & Mahomes.

“They make big throws all the time without having to set their feet & that’s a big deal in the NFL.”

But not all fans were as doom and gloom, with one suggesting “Honestly not a bad throw at all. The WR obviously can’t track the football like NFL wrs can”

While one simply said: “Pro days = waste of time”

This clip appears to have thrown more fuel onto the fire of debate surrounding the number one pick, with there being no clear consensus surrounding the top quarterback, let alone the top overall prospect.

Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud and Florida‘s Anthony Richardson have also been touted as this year’s top quarterback prospects.

Meanwhile, Young’s Alabama teammate, edge rusher Will Anderson, is another player who some believe could go first overall.

Longtime NFL analyst Mel Kiper, who has made a name for himself ranking college prospects and creating draft boards since the 1980s, recently released his first mock of the year via ESPN+.

He has Stroud heading to Carolina, with the Houston Texans predicted to trade up one pick to second overall to grab Young.

And the Stroud-Panthers link is nothing new.

Last week, Carolina’s head coach Frank Reich attended Ohio State’s Pro Day along with multiple other team coaches.

Following his workout, Panthers quarterbacks coach Josh McCown was recorded telling Stroud “Maybe when you live in Charlotte, we’ll find a court,” when discussing the game HORSE.

However, draft season is usually little more than a game of chess between NFL front offices – a game filled with smoke and mirrors disguising their actual strategy.

As such, it remains anybody’s guess whether or not Young will go first overall, or if the Panthers will even keep this pick come draft night.
