Jay Glazer: “I do think there was some smoke screen with this pick but they were just going through the process. He is by far the best passer in this draft and his combine was truly incredible.”
Steve Keim: “I can see that it was a little bit of smoke screen, they’re not going to go out and tell everyone what they’re going to do. In this situation, Houston had to make a decision on someone they absolute loved, I think they made the right decision going with a quarterback early."
Lavar Arrington: "CJ Stroud is one of those guys that can deliver on the big stage. Remember that Georgia game? That final drive he showed us a lot, this 100% was a good pick by the Houston Texans”
