A new era for the Houston Texans kicked off this week when CJ Stroud hit the field for the team for the first time.
The No. 2 overall pick tossed passes on the first day of Houston Texans rookie minicamp Friday at Houston Methodist Training Center.
One of Stroud’s targets was former Houston Cougars receiver, Tank Dell. The Texans spent their 69th overall pick in Round 3 to keep him in town. He later revealed he called Stroud and asked him to tell the Texans to come get him.
Here’s how social media responded:
This new era is just removed from the previous era of having Deshaun Watson. After his off-the-field issues and his trade demand, the team sent him packing to the Cleveland Browns last offseason.
Stroud, a two-time Heisman finalist and 2022 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, still must earn the starting job over both Davis Mills and veteran Case Keenum, but the expectation is that he’ll develop into Houston’s future franchise quarterback.
In two seasons, Stroud became one of the top passers in college football. He threw for 8,123 yards, 85 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions while leading the Buckeyes to a 21-4 record. Stroud’s best outing came in Ohio State’s 41-40 loss to Georgia, as he threw for 338 yards and four TDs.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
