Carson Strong Ceiling

Recommended Posts

Because of the covid rule, counting this season, he has 4 seasons to play. So the question becomes how good can he get? I think much better, but he’s going to have to bulk up and gain 25 to 30lbs of muscle if he wants much of an NFL career. 6’-4” at 205 lbs is a great WR body, but not a QB. Amazing, as thin as he is, his arm strength is very good. 

So how high do you think his ceiling is?

He definitely has the raw skills to become a, if not the, top quarterback in the conference.

Hard to tell in one single game against Wyoming. He looks like a good one but need to see more before I’d guess what his ceiling is.

This, he looked pretty stellar in our opener against Purdue last year too. Hopefully the rest of this season goes much better.

Tough to tell. When I watch college football, many QBs have the physical size and throw the ball well, but there is a whole lot more than that to being an NFL QB. Ryan Leaf is a prime example.

He's 15th in the country in passing efficiency after playing one game against a team that lost almost every player and coach on the defensive side of the ball... let's not go full Josh Allen over that

What are you talking about?  He’s the next coming of whatever the conferences last great quarterback.  Just wait, he’s going to light up that vaunted UNLV defense next week. /s/

Good QB, but I think he caught lightening in a bottle a bit. He was dropping absolute dimes in the first half, but was missing easier throws in the second half and missed badly on a few. He's probably 75% as good as he showed against Wyoming. He might be a fringe NFL guy. Ryan Lindley, Garrett Grayson or David Fales-type ceiling, Which is pretty good

Easy tiger. No one is saying he’s great yet. His last 4 games last year were pretty good and the 4 games to start the season after Purdue were bad, but we’re on his 5th game In a row now where he’s done we’ll. So this isn’t about just one good game as some have stated. His last four games of last year were 8 TD, 1 INT.

I haven’t had a lot of faith in him, and have had the opinion that we needed a franchise type of QB like a Kap or Fajardo going forward. But to be fair, especially starting last year, our OL was complete shit, and experienced QB’s would’ve had problems with that lack of support. So it ain’t too fair to expect a frosh to make much out of that. 

I’ve been really critical about both Polian and now Norvell for not scoring at least one big QB prospect. As thin as Strong is, he doesn’t look like he’ll have the durability long term, but who knows.

His ceiling will be UNLV.

The Rebs seem to have their number.

The discussion is on his ceiling, not the team’s ceiling you dork. 

Have you regressed to 14 years old like your dear leader ?

He will hit his ceiling against UNLV.

Think about it.

Dipshit, dumbass, mofo

In all seriousness I think he has a very high ceiling.  He could be a second round draft pick if he continues to develop.

If he was a tad bit more mobile he would be a first 3 round NFL prospect but as it stands he's good enough to become a first team MW talent and could develop into an NFL prospect.  I think he has the physical arm talent to be better than anyone to wear a Nevada uniform since David Neil in 2000.  Kap had a stronger arm but almost no touch.

Fajardo is better than Strong. He was f’ed by a coaching change, as was Neill.

And there lies the reason why I rarely read or respond to your 0 calorie cliche crybaby drivel with your melodramatic whiney wannabe cool trollmanship. It’s boring, and I don’t have time for boring.

The complete miss on Leaf was the Chargers missing his mental immaturity. He found a comfort zone at WSU, but he didn’t have the maturity and composure to be put in an entirely different environment with more discipline that he was used to and adapt quickly with a lot on the line. It’s great to see him as a color guy calling games. I think he does a great job.

I agree with this. Fajardo’s development essentially ended when Polian took over.
