2023 Rookie QB Profile - CJ Stroud

Updated: Jul 28, 2023

Age - 21 years Height - 6’ 3” Weight - 218 lb

What is The Buzz? Strong, accurate passer. Does not hesitate and finds receivers in-stride.

Passing Report Stroud was the leader among FBS schools in passing efficiency over the past two seasons. In 2022, he ranked 3rd among yards per attempt among FBS players (9.48 YPA). Many accolades including Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year in 2021 and was a Heisman Trophy finalist in both ‘21 and ‘22. Leading Ohio State to the College Football Playoff in ‘22, he has the pedigree of a winner and leader of an offense. Possesses excellent vision in the pocket with a high football IQ.

Where Does He Fall Short? A soft schedule most of the season; when the games got important, he failed to show up in big moments. He’s not the most mobile QB when faced with pressure. He can react to pressure but he’s not elusive. The ever-present “Buckeye QB’s don’t succeed in the NFL” burden isn’t the best argument against him but shows he could be successful due to the system he was in.
