Which way could the Carolina Panthers go with their 2024 NFL Draft selections given what the franchise might need heading into the process?

There is a lot of football to be played between now and when the 2024 NFL Draft rolls around. For the Carolina Panthers, needs will change throughout what promises to be a fascinating first campaign for the organization under new head coach Frank Reich.

Although next year's draft is at the back of most fans' minds right now, those already in the building will already be scouting the next batch of recruits set to emerge from the college ranks. But their statuses on boards across the league are likely to alter heavily depending on how they fare next season.

Of course, the Panthers don't have a first-round selection to call upon after their bombshell trade with the Chicago Bears earlier this spring. But if Bryce Young emerges as the franchise-caliber quarterback this team's been craving since Cam Newton's controversial release in 2020, it shouldn't bother anybody.

Young has the potential to change Carolina's fortunes in the biggest way imaginable. This would solve the team's biggest problem, which would allow their six selections in 2024 to focus on other potential roster complications.

Using the Pro Football Network simulator, we took an extremely early look at which way the Panthers might go with their selections next year.
