Round 1

Pick No. 1

With the first overall pick, the Carolina Panthers select Bryce Young, from the University of Alabama. Since the end of the 2023 NCAA college football season, analysts and media members alike highlighted Young as the #1 player in the NFL Draft. Now, he gets to be a part of a Panthers team that could compete in a weak NFC South division.

Pick No. 2

With the second overall pick, the Houston Texans select C.J. Stroud, quarterback from Ohio State.

Pick No. 3

The Arizona Cardinals traded the No. 3 overall pick to the Houston Texans. With the third overall pick, the Houston Texans select Will Anderson Jr., a linebacker from Alabama.

Pick No. 4

With the fourth overall pick, the Colts are selecting Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson. Wow.

Pick No. 5

With the fifth overall pick, the Seattle Seahawks select cornerback Devon Witherspoon from Illinois.
