Not a big surprise, but Stroud struggled a little early on before making improvement, especially in the preseason games. He threw is first TD in the team's third preseason game. The story said Mills may have been the safer pick, but the rest of the Texans young offense now has a chance to grow with a QB who was the number-two overall pick in the NFL Draft.
