Plenty of analysts were buzzing after Stroud’s throwing session, so it’s safe to say he put on a show and there should be no questions about his ability to move the ball through the air at the next level. Find out below some of the best reactions to Stroud’s impressive performance on social media.

If you were like me, it never seemed like Stroud had elite arm strength, but these numbers show a much different story. He has a cannon for a right arm.

CJ Stroud’s film is littered with special throws. If the combine is changing your thoughts on him then…
Ya really missed something on your eval.

Stroud can make all the throws.
ESPN’s Jordan Reid
Sitting right behind CJ Stroud. Best way to describe him throwing the football is like watching an ace pitcher. Natural, effortless and precise. Can hit any part of the strike zone.
— Jordan Reid (@Jordan_Reid) March 4, 2023
SP1 is pretty similar to QB1 right?

Perfect placement by CJ Stroud but that’s no surprise as it’s all he puts on tape. He remains the safest bet of this QB class pic.twitter.com/sASuFiz3qh
