Carolina Panthers 2023 NFL Draft Picks


Carolina made the move of the offseason by trading for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

The team clearly wants to get a potential franchise quarterback after a 7-10 season in which they missed the playoffs. Here’s what you need to know about the Carolina Panthers’ draft picks for the 2023 NFL Draft.

List of Carolina Panthers Draft Picks in the 2023 NFL Draft

The Panthers have a total of six selections in the 2023 NFL Draft, including the No. 1 pick. They don’t have a pick in the sixth or seventh round of the draft.

Here’s a complete list of the Panthers’ draft picks for 2023.

– 1st Round: 1st overall (from Chicago Bears)

– 2nd Round: 39th overall

– 3rd Round: 93rd overall (from San Francisco 49ers)

– 4th Round: 132nd overall (from San Francisco 49ers)

The Panthers traded away their ninth overall selection, the 61st pick, a 2024 first-rounder, a 2025 second-rounder, and wide receiver DJ Moore to get the number one pick from the Bears.

The Panthers were able to add draft picks by trading running back Christian McCaffrey before the trade deadline. One of the picks ended up being traded to the New England Patriots.

Carolina Panthers 2023 NFL Mock Draft and Team Needs

It seems pretty clear Carolina moved up to No. 1 to get a franchise QB in either Bryce Young or CJ Stroud. The team drafted Matt Corral in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, but he missed the entire year with an injury. Regardless, Panthers general manager Scott Fitterer made the big move in the draft to get a quarterback.

Most mock drafts have the Panthers’ 2023 draft picks starting with C.J. Stroud from Ohio State. Bryce Young could sneak ahead of him and go as the top pick after a fantastic career at Alabama. New head coach Frank Reich will likely have a rookie starting the 2023 season under center.

In the second and third rounds, the team could add a wide receiver such as Josh Downs from North Carolina to give its new quarterback a solid option on the outside. Also, edge rusher Byron Young from Tennessee could be worth a look as a third or fourth-rounder.
