Fans got their first look at Bryce Young in a Panthers uniform Friday during the team’s rookie minicamp, and they had plenty to say about seeing the No. 1 draft pick on an NFL practice field.
Young, the 2021 Heisman Trophy winner who put up eye-popping numbers in his two seasons as Alabama’s starting quarterback, measured in at just 5’ 10” at the NFL combine in Indianapolis this past winter. And in his first snap with the Panthers, fans couldn’t help but notice how small Young looked behind a pro offensive line.
Here’s the video of that first snap with his new teammates:
It’s worth noting that Young isn’t wearing pads here, which makes him look even smaller than he normally would on the field. Still, that didn’t stop the NFL world from having fun with Young’s diminutive stature.
Looks like a freshman QB getting reps with varsity at practice. https://t.co/mPggdOiLj7— Emmett Golden (@egoldie80) May 12, 2023
