There's really no doubt. Jacksonville would've gotten a huge payday for the pick. Fields would've been the only option for any team wanting a QB.
Another hypothetical, what would the bears have had to give up to move from 7 to 1 to get him? An extra first and change sounds pretty cheap huh...
This is hilarious!
I read some stuff online so I know more than an entire professional scouting department. I mean...really?
These guys do this for a living and are wrong all the time. I love how fans think they could do so much better cuz they watched a couple clips or read a couple hot takes.
Many people don't quite understand that stats do not equal development. Getting help around him would improve his stats, that doesn't necessarily mean he is developing. Putting up poor stats this season doesn't mean that he hasn't developed.
The make or break for Fields is can he learn to read...
I agree he had the aforementioned abilities you mentioned within the inside of his skill set but I would also like to point out that he also has these abilities within the outside of his skill set of skills.
