    Brigham Young University's Pro Day in March made headlines because of quarterback Zach Wilson, who was ultimately selected second overall in the 2021 NFL draft by the New York Jets.

With Carolina Panthers general manager Scott Fitterer and offensive coordinator Joe Brady in attendance, Brady Christensen took full advantage of the opportunity and showed off his athletic abilities.

    He made enough of an impression to be drafted in third round by a Panthers team in need of help on the offensive line. Then the critiques came in. The team traded back and watched left tackles fly off the board, and then drafted a soon-to-be 25-year old lineman who the staff currently projects more on the right side.
