In the world of football, there’s a big event called the NFL Draft. Every year, teams pick new players to join them. The Carolina Panthers are a team in the NFL, and they get to choose a player first this time. People are talking a lot about this because the team might pick a quarterback (QB) named Bryce Young from Alabama. He’s really good and even won an award called the Heisman Trophy for being the best college football player.

Now, you might think that if a quarterback is picked first, they’re going to be really great in their first year in the NFL. They might even win an award called the Offensive Rookie of the Year. But, if we look back at all the quarterbacks picked first since the year 2000, only 3 out of 16 have won this award. That’s not a lot. Some really famous quarterbacks like Trevor Lawrence and Andrew Luck didn’t win it when they were new.

Winning the Heisman Trophy is cool, and those who did win the Rookie of the Year were also Heisman Trophy winners. But it’s not just quarterbacks who can be the best new player. Lately, North Carolina sports betting sites have noticed that wide receivers, who catch the ball, are winning more awards. As football teams throw the ball more, these players get noticed more.

In the draft, there are other players who catch the ball really well, like Zay Flowers and Jordan Addison. Even though the Panthers need a quarterback, these are the kind of players who might do really well in their first year and win the Rookie of the Year award.
