Did Panthers coach drop big hint about which QB team will draft No. 1?

Some are convinced that Carolina Panthers quarterbacks coach Josh McCown on Wednesday may have given away the team’s draft plans.

McCown was among the Panthers brass in attendance for Ohio State’s Pro Day on Wednesday, largely to see quarterback CJ Stroud go through his reps. Nick Carboni of WCNC posted a video of Stroud greeting key Panthers figures including McCown.

Stroud and McCown seemed to set up a game of HORSE against each other at some point.

Some, however, fixated on one particular thing McCown told Stroud. At one point, it did sound like McCown told Stroud that “maybe when you live in Charlotte we’ll find a court.”

That would seem to indicate that the Panthers know they’re taking Stroud No. 1 overall. Of course, your interpretation depends on what you hear in the video.

Some think McCown may have said “go to Charlotte” instead of “live in Charlotte,” which would probably just refer to a standard pre-draft visit.

Reports have indicated that Stroud is one of the two quarterbacks the Panthers are giving strongest consideration to with the pick. Even if the team has made up its mind, it’s tough to imagine McCown would spill something like that in a public setting.
