Plausible, but hard to imagine Ewers waiting until junior year to start.

I think more likely it’s a battle royale for the post-Stroud spot, if that’s how the next two years go, with the loser pulling a Joe Burrow.

: 2021 - Assume it's Stroud's job
: Backups: McCord (FR) & Miller (SO)

: 2022 - Stroud's job
: Backups: McCord (SO), Ewers (FR)
: Notes: Miller likely transfers; this is a key year to convince McCord to stay, and Stroud should go to NFL after this year, if he's not good enough to go to NFL, he likely already lost the job to McCord

: Stroud to NFL after his 3rd year and 2 starting years

: 2023 - McCord's (JR) job
: Backups: Ewers (SO), TBD (Redshirt)
: Notes: Need to convince Ewers to stay for this year, unless he pulls a Trevor Lawrence - Kelly Bryant, but McCord has an NFL arm and may be ready for NFL after this year; if he's not (similar to above) then Ewers will have already beaten him out

: McCord to NFL after his 3rd year and 1 starting year (a la Dwayne Haskins)

: 2024 - Ewers job (likely for 1 year) then off to NFL
