“The ship has sailed”: NFL insider slams Bryce Young’s Texans meeting as unnecessary ahead of expected Panthers pick

The NFL Draft is just around the corner, and speculation is rife about who will be the No. 1 overall pick. For Alabama quarterback Bryce Young, the expectation is that he will be chosen by the Carolina Panthers. However, despite this, the quarterback recently met with the Houston Texans, leaving some to question whether this was a waste of time. In this article, we take a closer look at the situation and explore why one NFL insider has claimed that the “ship has sailed” for the Texans.

The Alabama quarterback recently met with the Houston Texans after meeting with the Carolina Panthers the day before. However, some insiders believe that this visit was pointless.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Texans meeting with Young is a waste of time since the Panthers are expected to select him as the No. 1 overall pick.

“Bryce Young is going to visit the Houston Texans. I think it’s a waste of time,” Schefter said on NFL Live. “I think the ship has sailed. I think Bryce Young is going to be the No. 1 pick. They’re not going to have a chance to take the guy that, I think, they would have liked to have taken.”


Will Bryce Young join the Texans?

The fact that Young is still meeting with Houston may suggest that there was no guarantee from Carolina on Tuesday.

For the Texans, it appears that they will have a choice between Stroud, Anthony Richardson, and Will Levis as they search for their next franchise quarterback under new coach DeMeco Ryans.

Recently, rumors linking Alabama quarterback to the Panthers have grown, with the 2021 Heisman winner now a significant favorite at -360 to be the top pick at DraftKings Sportsbook. The Panthers will make their selection for their next franchise quarterback on April 27.

As the NFL Draft draws ever closer, the speculation surrounding who will be the No. 1 overall pick continues to grow. While some believe that this was a waste of time, only time will tell what the future holds for the Alabama quarterback and the Texans.
