Why drafting a quarterback in the first round might not be Carolina Panthers' preferred plan

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The NFL is in the midst of a feeding frenzy in terms of trading for established quarterbacks.

The Detroit Lions swapped Matthew Stafford for the Los Angeles Rams' Jared Goff, a pair of future first-round picks and a third-rounder this year, and the Philadelphia Eagles traded Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts for a third-round pick this year and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first-rounder.

It could explode if the Houston Texans, who so far have eschewed suitors, grant 2017 first-round pick Deshaun Watson his wish to be traded.
