Charlotte's WFNZ Sports Radio is Looping C.J. Stroud Highlights Outside Bank of America Stadium, Pushing the Panthers to Take the Buckeye No. 1

When the Carolina Panthers made their move for the Chicago Bears' No. 1 overall pick of this year's NFL Draft, the overwhelming conclusion was the Panthers made the trade to select a quarterback with Ohio State's C.J. Stroud and Alabama's Bryce Young, the presumed frontrunners.

WFNZ Sports Radio 92.7 of Charlotte certainly has a preference for who it would like to see the Panthers snag with that top overall pick.

Eleven Warriors member BuckeyeChief told us that pedestrians and commuters could watch an almost two-minute-long Stroud highlight video on the corner of West Morehead and South Mint Street, and my dad Curt Gutridge was kind enough to share video of the billboard with us.

The video board sits atop a building that is home to the WFNZ Jack Daniels Dog House and shows a 24-hour loop of Stroud's finest passes. What sits directly across the street from the video board showing Stroud delivering dime after dime? Bank of America Stadium, home of the Panthers.

Astute observers may even recognize the Stroud graphic WFNZ uses in the photo above as a graphic created by Eleven Warriors. We're touched, truly (though why'd you have to chop off our watermark?).

We may not know who the Panthers will make the No. 1 overall pick, but if WFNZ's power of persuasion works, Stroud will hear Roger Goodell call his name first on April 27.
