Bryce Young’s 98 percent score means he scored better than at least 97 percent of all test takers while Stroud reportedly scored better than only 17 percent of all participants.
Fans were in shock:
Stroud was a highly touted recruit coming out of high school, and he has lived up to the hype so far. He has a strong arm and the ability to make plays with his legs, making him a dual-threat quarterback. He also has a great work ethic and drive to improve, which has been noted by his coaches and teammates.
After redshirting his freshman year at Ohio State, Stroud was thrust into the starting quarterback role in 2021, following the departure of Justin Fields to the NFL. Despite the pressure and expectations that come with being the starting quarterback at a program like Ohio State, Stroud rose to the challenge, showcasing his impressive skill set and potential as a quarterback.
However, there have been a number of bad reports regarding him as we draw closer to the NFL Draft.
For months, he appeared to be a lock to be the 2nd overall draft pick to the Houston Texans. However, it appears that the Texans have soured on him and he might not be chosen until the fourth pick, which would be the Indianapolis Colts.
As he continues to grow and develop as a quarterback, the sky is the limit for C.J. Stroud. With his physical gifts, work ethic, and talent, he has the potential to be one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL.
He will certainly have a major chip on his shoulder.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
