The Carolina Panthers made a massive trade to move up to the first overall pick of the NFL Draft.
Since then, there has been plenty of speculation about who they might select.
Well, the latest decision Bryce Young just made might have just solidified he’s going to Carolina.
According to Tom Pelissero, Young “has canceled his remaining pre-draft visits.”
Alabama QB Bryce Young has canceled his remaining pre-draft visits, per sources — another sign to back up belief within the league that the 2021 Heisman Trophy winner will be the #Panthers’ pick at No. 1 overall.

Technically, that doesn’t guarantee that Bryce Young is the Panthers’ pick. But it’s a strong indication that he believes he’ll at least be a top-two selection on Draft day.
Furthermore, the Panthers moved up to the top pick to select a quarterback. They’ve been diligent throughout the draft process, as they aim to acquire a franchise guy.
Bryce Young has been favored to go number one overall throughout most of the offseason. But his decision to cancel pre-draft visits means he’s very likely being taken early on.
Overall though, NFL fans seem pretty convinced Bryce Young will head to Carolina.

Of course, we won’t know which team will select Young until the NFL Draft. But his decision to cancel pre-draft visits is a good sign he’ll at least be a top-two pick.
Tune into the NFL Draft on Thursday, April 27 to see where the former Alabama quarterback will play.
