What are some pros and cons to the Carolina Panthers making Nevada quarterback Carson Strong their franchise signal-caller in the 2022 NFL Draft?

This is hardly breaking news, but Albert Breer recently confirmed that the Carolina Panthers will be in the market for a new quarterback this offseason. Considering the dismal production the team has gotten from the position in 2021, we all knew this was to be expected.

Veteran names such as Deshaun Watson, Russell Wilson, Jimmy Garoppolo, and Baker Mayfield were listed as possibilities. Breer also added that if Carolina strikes out in its pursuit of a veteran, they could turn to the draft for an upgrade.

This is widely considered to be one of the poorer quarterback drafts in recent memory. But there’s always some allure to bringing a young signal-caller into the fold.

It seems as if the most popular signal-callers in this draft class are currently Kenny Pickett, Matt Corral, Malik Willis, and Sam Howell. While each of those players offers intriguing NFL skill sets, there’s one more name that also belongs in the discussion for this draft’s best quarterback.

Carolina Panthers should consider drafting Carson Strong in 2022.

Carson Strong has a last name that also perfectly encapsulates the way he approaches the quarterback position. The prospect has a rocket launcher for an arm, and this first landed him on NFL radars during his junior season.

The Nevada product continued to improve as a senior, and the next step is doing the same in a professional environment.

If the Panthers end up in a situation where they are determined to add a quarterback in the draft, Strong should be one of the top candidates. Here are some pros and cons for Carolina to weigh up before making the move.
