The Carolina Panthers are undergoing a significant roster change.
That is having two new quarterbacks on their roster for the 2023 season.
One is NFL veteran Andy Dalton and the other is first-overall pick Bryce Young.
Usually when a quarterback is picked first overall, they become the immediate starter.
But that might not be the case in Carolina.
According to Dov Kleiman, Dalton will be receiving the first-team reps at OTAs.

What happens in OTAs does not have much effect on the regular season.
Young still has plenty of time to show he can win the starting job.
But the Panthers did not want to hand the first-team reps to Young just because he was picked first.
They want him to have to earn that spot and he will get the chance to do that.
There has not been much to cheer about in Carolina over the past few seasons.
This is mostly because they have not had quality quarterback play.
Young should help make the upcoming season the most exciting in Carolina since they drafted Cam Newton.
The ticket and jersey sales will skyrocket as everyone wants to show love for Young.
It seems like a good bet that Young will be the starter by the time Week 1 comes around.
The Panthers could be a sneaky playoff team next season.
This is mostly because they get to play in the NFC South, the worst football division.
Carolina could be a dark horse playoff contender if Young can play how many people expect.NEXT: Panthers HC Comments On Bryce Young's First Day
