Quarterback, Ohio State, junior

Since high school, Justin Fields is expected as a major player. After a move from Georgia to Ohio State, he has since confirmed expectations: production and potential make him a top player.

If I were a quality: excellent pitcher

Everything seems easy when we see Justin Fields throw the ball: it comes out of his hand quickly, with a lot of speed and the ball travels with a beautiful spiral. He is also able to throw in depth and again it seems easy for him.

If I were a limit: adversity

With Ohio State, Justin Fields has benefited for two seasons of receivers often taking the advantage over their defenders, he is also protected by offensive linemen with a future in the NFL. Selected so high, he will find himself in a weaker team than the majority of the opponents, will Justin Fields adjust? His toughest opponent was Clemson in the 2019 semifinals and Justin Fields threw two interceptions that night.

If I were a statistic: let’s complete

78% of passes completed in 2020! Even with a cast at his side superior to the opponents, this precision remains impressive. In 2019, he throws 40 TDs for a single INT in 13 regular season games. In 2020, he threw 3 interceptions in 5 games but all three in the same game. An accident. Justin Fields is a reliable quarterback.

If I were an NFL player: Deshaun Watson (Texans)

Like the Texan, Justin Fields knows how to throw but also run when the game calls for it. Mobile in the pocket to prolong the action or to gain the yards necessary for a first attempt.

If I was a draft pick: top 2

Without the presence of Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields would be number 1 in the draft. His technical background and potential seem superior to many quarterbacks chosen with the first pick in recent years.

If I were an NFL team: Jacksonville Jaguars

The Floridians seem to be in the top 3 of the 2021 draft. Gardner Minshew II has shown a lot of quality but also some limits. In rebuild mode, the Jaguars can hardly deprive themselves of such potential for the future.
