Quarterback C.J. Stroud will be working out for possible future employers at Ohio State's Pro Day on Wednesday, and the Carolina Panthers aren't leaving any stone unturned in Columbus.

The Ohio State Buckeyes are expected to be well-represented in next month's NFL Draft, with quarterback C.J. Stroud high on the list of several teams who are in dire need of a franchise signal-caller.

Recently, the Chicago Bears, who already employ a former Buckeyes quarterback in Justin Fields, traded the No. 1 overall pick to the Carolina Panthers for wideout D.J. Moore, two 2023 picks, and 2024 pick, and a 2025 pick.

Yes, the Panthers are one of those teams who desperately need an upgrade at the quarterback position and they gave up a ton of draft stock to have first dibs at either Stroud, Alabama's Bryce Young, or Florida's Anthony Richardson.

Stroud will be working out for possible future employers at Ohio State's Pro Day on Wednesday and the Panthers aren't leaving any stone unturned in Columbus, as they're sending a whopping 11 representatives to the Buckeyes campus to watch Stroud throw.

Albert Breer of reports that owners David and Nicole Tepper, General Manager Scott Fitterer, head coach Frank Reich, assistant General Manager Dan Morgan, vice president Samir Suleiman, offensive coordinator Thomas Brown, quarterbacks coach Josh McCown, senior assistant Jim Caldwell, scouting director Cole Spencer and scout Joel Patten will attend for the Panthers.

Also working out during Pro Day for the Buckeyes are cornerback Cameron Brown, defensive tackle Jerron Cage, linebacker Palaie Gaoteote, defensive end Zach Harrison, safety Ronnie Hickman, offensive tackles Paris Johnson Jr. and Dawand Jones, safety/nickel back Tanner McCalister, long snapper Bradley Robinson, tight end Mitch Rossi, wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba, defensive tackle Taron Vincent and center Luke Wypler.

The Panthers appear to be serious about getting the No. 1 overall pick right, and they're sending an army to see Stroud on Wednesday to be sure. 

And they should be after all they gave up to get there.
