Questions have arose concerning C.J. Stroud’s ability to process and read defenses. All and all, Stroud’s mechanics and ball placement are his biggest strengths. He has been lauded for his accuracy and the numbers show up big time.
One of Stroud’s biggest green flags until this point is his Georgia tape. He flashed and flourished against the number one team in the nation and very nearly pulled off the upset. It showed his poise in a big game moment while playing against a big time opponent.
C.J. Stroud has a great chance to flourish in a west coast offense given that he makes very little mistakes and shows sneaky mobility. Offensive Coordinator Bobby Slowik will have a great time grooming this potential stud.
