COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - The Carolina Panthers selected University of Alabama quarterback Bryce Yong as the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NFL draft and the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native is ready to get to work.

During his introductory press conference, Young expressed his desire to get to work and his eagerness to embrace the process that is waiting for him as a member of Panthers nation.

Young started off with a statement thanking his family and friends and how being drafted was a surreal feeling.

In the question and answer portion of the conference, Young said he is going to do everything in his power to control what he can control and to leave everything else up to God.

Young also said he is looking forward to working with a coaching staff who have had success at the professional level and he is anxious to learn more from their wealth of knowledge.

Bryce credits his parents as his biggest support system and acknowledges them with helping him prepare mentally for the level he is about to begin.

Young continuously iterated how thankful he is to be in the position that he is in and does not take the trust the Panthers organization has put in him for granted.

Young, the 2021 Heisman winner will be bringing his high IQ and arm accuracy to the Panthers. Carolina coaches say there was never any doubt Young was going to be their pick.

During his last year with the Crimson Tide, Young threw for 3,328 yards, had 32 touchdowns, and had 5 interceptions with an 86.2 quarterback rating.
