The second overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, C.J. Stroud is a mature passer with a strong, accurate arm. Stroud isn't a running QB, but nor is he a statue in the pocket -- he has functional mobility to avoid sacks. Stroud won't have an abundance of pass-catching talent to help him through his rookie year with the Texans, so don't expect a great deal of fantasy value from the former Buckeye in Year 1.
