C.J. Stroud is putting on a show at the 2023 NFL combine.

The Ohio State quarterback and back-to-back Heisman Trophy finalist came into the 2023 NFL combine as one of the top two quarterbacks available in April's NFL draft with Alabama's Bryce Young. And during his throwing session, Stroud put on a performance that was getting noticed.

"C.J. Stroud is having one of the best throwing sessions I've seen at the Combine," NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah tweeted Saturday.

During Stroud's throwing session, he has opportunities to throw to former Ohio State wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba, who missed the majority of his junior season with a hamstring injury.

In two seasons as Ohio State's starting quarterback, Stroud threw for 8,123 passing yards, 85 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

ESPN NFL Draft analyst Matt Miller called Stroud the "least talked about QB in this class" but the "most fluid passer of them all."

Miller later said Ohio State had a "great day," calling both Stroud's and Smith-Njigba's performances at the combine "phenomenal."
