No. 4: Carson Strong
Welcome back Carson Strong! Talk about an electrifying and statement-making performance. Strong was absolutely brilliant against New Mexico State in Week 6.
Strong finished the night with 377 passing yards while throwing 25-of-32 with a completion percentage of 78.1 percent with an average yardage per throw at 11.8 yards. To top off the performance Strong also threw for six touchdowns on the night with one interception.
The most impressive part of Strong’s performance was the lack of drop-off. Every throw was as good as the one before it. The arm talent is undoubted with Strong, and he can make every throw there is and make it look easy too.
Improvement and consistency are the names of the game for Strong. From week-to-week he needs to show steady improvement. His talent is undeniable and the national media is starting to notice. Up-and-down performances have hampered his stock so far, but look for that to change.
Pro Comparison: Carson Wentz is the comparison that makes the most sense. Both players are not the fastest but can escape trouble when need be. Both Strong and Wentz have extremely strong arms and have the ability to throw on the run.
