How, when to watch C.J. Stroud at the NFL Combine
Notable stats, performance in college
Stroud spent two seasons as the starting quarterback for the Ohio State Buckeyes. He combined for 8,123 yards with 85 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 25 career games. Stroud isn’t a dual-threat quarterback but has the agility to escape a pocket when needed.
His best performance in the 2021 regular season came in Week 2 against Oregon. The Buckeyes took the loss, but Stroud completed 35 of his 54 passes for 484 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. He balled out against Utah in the 2022 Rose Bowl. Stroud torched the Utes for 573 passing yards and six touchdowns through the air.
That wasn’t the only six-touchdown performance of his career. He completed 21 of his 26 passes for 361 yards and six touchdowns against Michigan State in 2022. Stroud always had a knack for finding his receivers in the endzone. Four of his 12 regular season games in 2022 saw him end with at least five passing touchdowns.
