The Carolina Panthers reportedly might be ready to shake up the draft with a huge trade.

Currently, the Panthers hold the sixth overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft, but they’re apparently in discussions to move the pick, according to Mike Giardi. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Giardi further reported that it’s much more realistic the Panthers drop back and pick a quarterback in the middle of the first round than in the top 10.

If the Panthers do drop back and trade out of the sixth spot, it would certainly send shockwaves through the league and the draft.

Whenever a team trades out of the top 10, it moves the needle in a big way, and it sounds like that’s exactly what the Panthers might do.

It’s also not a bad idea. If you believe you can land Matt Corral or Desmond Ridder in the middle or near the end of the first round, why not trade out?

You can stockpile some picks and still get a quarterback replacement for Sam Darnold. I truly believe Matt Corral is going to be a star and teams are undervaluing him because he got hurt in Ole Miss’ bowl game.

If you land him after the 15th pick, you’re getting a steal.
