During this Tuesday’s episode of NFL Live, ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky offered a potential solution for the Raiders’ quarterback situation.
Although there’s a lot of smoke surrounding Aaron Rodgers and the Raiders, Orlovsky believes Las Vegas should target Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud in this year’s draft.
“If you’re the Raiders and Davante Adams wants that young player, C.J. Stroud is the guy you’re gonna have to go up from the seventh pick and likely to go get,” Orlovsky said. “If you think you’re a good football team, and I think they are, don’t wait for the quarterback.”
Stroud could end up being a top-five pick in this year’s draft. That means the Raiders would need to pull some strings together and move up the draft board.
Stroud had impressive numbers during his final season at Ohio State, completing 66.3 percent of his pass attempts for 3,688 yards with 41 touchdowns and six interceptions.
Acquiring a potential-packed quarterback like Stroud could give the Raiders financial flexibility and a better long-term outlook.
