  Draft Scout by Conference

  When Ohio State wide receiver Garrett Wilson thinks of a comparison to C.J. Stroud, the Buckeyes' newly named starting quarterback, he turns to the NFL, bringing up Russell Wilson, the Seattle Seahawks' signal caller who puts touch on many of his deep throws. "Just the way the ball lands, like falls on a receiver," Wilson said, "You can choose how to play those type of balls. You can let it fall over your shoulder or go up at a high point, depending on which gives you the best chance to make a play. You love having someone who drops the ball on you versus not being able to react as much." A few days after Stroud was named the team's starting quarterback for the upcoming season, prevailing in a preseason competition between Kyle McCord and Jack Miller, he received glowing praise from the receivers who will be on the other end of his passes.

All of them raved about his ball placement, one of the qualities that could allow the redshirt freshman from California to successfully replace Justin Fields behind center despite the lack of college experience. He did not attempt a pass in a game as a backup last fall. "His arm talent is off the charts," said Chris Olave, the preseason All-American who forms a premier pass-catching tandem with Wilson. "He's going to put the ball wherever we need it." - Columbus Dispatch
