Panthers agree to trade DJ Moore, picks to Bears for 2023 draft’s No. 1 selection

The Carolina Panthers are going to get their quarterback, and nothing is going to stop them.

As first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Panthers have agreed to acquire the 2023 NFL draft’s No. 1 overall pick in exchange for a massive and surprising package. The haul heading to the Chicago Bears includes the ninth overall pick, the 61st overall pick (second round), a 2024 first-round pick, a 2025 second-round pick and wide receiver DJ Moore.

The trade won’t be official until the start of the new league year on March 15.

Numerous accounts from the combine leading up to Friday’s mind-blowing deal indicated that the Panthers were the most aggressive team in Indianapolis. That, of course, was inspired by the franchise’s longstanding problem under center — a void that can be filled by one of four prospects.

While they certainly have an idea of who they’ll be taking with that top pick, the candidates for the honor include Alabama’s Bryce Young, Ohio State’s CJ Stroud, Florida’s Anthony Richardson and Kentucky’s Will Levis.
