C.J. Stroud Mock Draft Roundup

Where does Stroud appear in 2023 NFL mock drafts? Here's a roundup of mock drafts and where Stroud is being slotted.

ESPN - McShay

1st overall, Houston Texans

The Texans believe in quarterback Davis Mills, but if they actually end up picking No. 1 next April, something went terribly awry for Mills during his sophomore season. Stroud has a big arm, completing 71.9% of his passes for 4,435 yards, 44 touchdowns and just six interceptions in 2021. The third-year sophomore has only 12 career starts, though, so all eyes will be on him this season.

San Diego Union Tribune - Brown

2nd overall, Detroit Lions

Stroud finished in the top five nationally in touchdown passes (44), completion percentage (71.9), passer efficiency rating (186.6), yards/game (369.9) and yards/attempt (10.1) and QBR (91.6) as a red-shirt freshman. His pinpoint accuracy allows him to put his receivers in position to maximize YAC.

FantasyPros - Freedman

1st overall, Houston Texans

If the Texans finish with the worst record in the league, second-year third-rounder Davis Mills will almost certainly not be the long-term starting quarterback for the team, and Stroud is the near-consensus No. 1 quarterback in the 2023 class.
