The 2023 NFL draft is scheduled for the last week of April at Union Station, Kansas City. Teams are burning the midnight oil, trying to find the right prospect for their roster and the position they will fill. To make the decision easier and see which players are the readiest to face the gruesome challenges in the league, the Combine will commence from February 28 until March 6.

General managers and head coaches from around the league will get to know the prospects personally and have a chat with them to evaluate if they are the best fit for the team. Many analysts have already done a mock draft and predicted which players will end up with which clubs. Most of them have predicted that Ohio State quarterback C. J. Stroud might be picked with the first three picks.

The Buckeye’s signal-caller has already made a plethora of records in collegiate football and has been a Heisman finalist for 2021 and 2022. In the three years he has spent at Ohio State, Stroud has a 21-4 record and was handed a defeat by the eventual champion Georgia Bulldogs at the Peach Bowl by a score of 42-41. In January, Stroud announced that he will be entering the 2023 draft forgoing his two years of college eligibility.

Due to him being in the team, the odds of Ohio performing well rose up drastically in the last 2 years, and people betting for Ohio have gained massive rewards from it as can be observed at ohbets, which provides online sportsbook promos in Ohio

Being a quarterback means getting showered with love after a win and facing the wrath after a defeat of the fans with the same tenacity. C. J. Stroud also had to face the same fans during his college career. There were a lot of people doubting his ability to win games for the Buckeyes after Justin Fields entered the draft. However, Stroud stepped up and got the job done with great poise.

The 21-year-old while talking with Saturday Tradition revealed that he is completely off social media during the season and is only active during the offseason. This meant that fans couldn’t get their frustration out and hurl expletives at Stroud for his poor performance during the game. “We’re all humans and some people tell you that they don’t care, they’re blocking it out,” the young quarterback said of fans venting out their frustrations on players.

“For me and my teammates, being at Ohio State, if you have social media or any type of technology, Ohio State fans have it and I was getting DMs – I don’t have social media during the season – I was getting DMs on Venmo, the money app through fans telling me to play better. It comes with the territory. It was insane, but at the end of the day, it comes with the territory. I learned so much from it.”

Now that’s certainly a creative way to tell your quarterback to play better! C. J. Stroud will be courted by a lot of teams during the NFL Combine and there are already rumors floating around the league that the Dallas Cowboys are ‘intrigued’ by the Ohio State quarterback. This just might be a ruse to get Dak Prescott to play better in the upcoming season. Let’s see which team will scoop up Stroud in the draft because he certainly has the vibe of a franchise quarterback.
