    It's been a long time coming. But the Carolina Panthers now have their first-round pick secured after taking Jaycee Horn at No. 8 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft.

    The hours before the draft was nothing short of extraordinary. Between the Aaron Rodgers rumors and the constant speculation regarding trade-ups and the quarterback prospects, it resulted in most NFL fans needing a lie down even before the draft began.

    There was no surprise who went No. 1 and No. 2. As expected, the Jacksonville Jaguars took Clemson phenom, Trevor Lawrence, in the hope he can transform the fortunes of the franchise, with the New York Jets banking on the upside of former BYU signal-caller Zach Wilson leading them back to prominence.

    Trey Lance went to the San Francisco 49ers, leaving the Atlanta Falcons free to pick arguably the best prospect entering the league this year in Florida's Kyle Pitts to round off the top four.

    As for the Panthers, they came within one pick of landing offensive tackle Penei Sewell before he was snapped up by the Detroit Lions. This gave the team plenty of options, which eventually saw those in power come to the conclusion that trading back wasn't an option and went with Horn out of South Carolina.
