CJ Stroud continues to make his case to be the top overall pick in this year’s draft, impressing NFL teams and a contingent from the Carolina Panthers at his Pro Day on Wednesday.

After Stroud’s workout, Carolina Panthers QB coach Josh McCown also dropped what at least sounded like a telling comment to Stroud. While the actual wording from McCown has been debated on social media, he made a reference to a game of “horse” when Stroud is “in Charlotte.”

“That was great, that was awesome,” said McCown in reference to Stroud’s workout.

“We’ll find a court, play some horse or something,” McCown said about a basketball matchup between the two. When Stroud interjected, McCown cut him off with what sounded like “Maybe when you live in Charlotte we’ll find a court.”

Some fans have disputed that those are the exact words McCown used, but whether it is a pre-draft visit or plans to draft the QB with the first pick, it sounds like McCown definitely expects Stroud to be in Carolina at some point down the road.
