Not only is Teddy Bridgewater's hesitancy to throw the football down the field limiting the Panthers' offense, but Bridgewater is now actively regressing and costing this team wins.

After a heartbreaking 27-28 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, Teddy Bridgewater managed to make angry even his most staunch supporters after seemingly dumping the blame on the coaches for not getting in the play call fast enough. The simple fact of the matter is, Teddy missed the throw and he should be thanking his lucky stars that D.J. Moore didn't tear his ACL completely in half. It's apparent to anyone paying close attention that Bridgewater is not a franchise QB and the Panthers should look to take advantage of their 2021 draft selection by selecting their future at the most important position in football.

Enter NDSU QB, Trey Lance!

Trey Lance took the CFB football landscape by storm in the 2020 season playing for the Bison. Lance would go on to throw for 2706 yards with 28 TD's and 0 INT's on the year, averaging 9.7 yards per play. At 6'4" 226 lbs, Lance has an absolute cannon for an arm and can fit the ball into tight windows down the field. Uses good judgment and goes through his progressions from a clean pocket. Lance is also very mobile and isn't afraid to lower his shoulder to pick up an extra few yards.

I invite everyone to check out the new Panthers Team Page where you can view the entire draft roster for the Carolina Panthers on one page without clicking through all the rounds!

PANTHERS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
