Starting strong at OTAs

Latest Headline: Published 2023-05-23

Coach DeMeco Ryans suggested Tuesday that he's in no rush to name a starting quarterback, though Stroud has done an "excellent job" so far, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Davis Mills was the first QB through drills at OTAs on Tuesday, followed by Stroud and then Case Keenum. The No. 2 overall pick in 2023 figures to make starts as a rookie, but he won't necessarily be under center Week 1 if he struggles during the offseason program. Ryans said a starter won't be determined until training camp.

Selected second overall by Houston

Latest Headline: Published 2023-04-27

The Texans selected Stroud in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, second overall.

For much of the pre-draft process, Stroud was considered a candidate to go first overall, and it's difficult to identify ways he could have played much better at Ohio State. This selection gives the Texans a credible franchise quarterback prospect, and one who will perhaps jumpstart the Houston passing game after throwing 85 touchdown passes to just 12 interceptions over the last two years. Stroud (6-foot-3, 214 pounds) is not a big quarterback and is unlikely to run much at the NFL level, but his pocket movement is adequate and his quick release allows him to pose as a big-play threat as a passer.

Heading to NFL

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-16

Stroud announced Monday via his personal Twitter account that he will forgo his remaining eligibility at Ohio State to enter the 2023 NFL Draft.

Stroud weighed his options until the final day of the draft's declaration deadline, but the two-time Heisman Trophy finalist has now made his decision official. The quarterback compiled 3,688 passing yards and 41 touchdowns to six interceptions while completing 66.3 percent of his passes over 13 games in his final collegiate season, and he'll likely be in the mix for NFL teams eyeing a rookie signal-caller near the top of April's draft, potentially even as an option along with Alabama's Bryce Young and Kentucky's Will Levis at No. 1 overall.
