No surprise here. On Monday morning, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields officially declared for the 2021 NFL Draft.

Growing up, my dream was to one day play the game that I love at the highest level,” Fields said. “Now thanks to God’s grace and mercy, along with the help of you all, I am in a position to turn that dream into reality.”

Fields began his college career at Georgia before transferring to Ohio State in 2019. In just two short years, he cemented himself as one of the most accomplished Buckeyes inn program history. The dual-threat QB threw for 5,373 yards, 63 touchdowns, and nine interceptions across 22 starts. Now, the two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year is on track to be an early pick in the spring.

The Jaguars are expected to select Clemson star Trevor Lawrence No. 1 overall, though Urban Meyer has indicated that Fields will also be considered. Most analysts have Fields as one of this year’s top three QBs — at minimum — along with BYU’s Zack Wilson.

    • have you seen my baseball

      Hahahhaha, this same narrative. Name a school with a legacy of turning out great NFL QBs. I’m sure you can name a few schools with multiple QBs who were good in nfl. But legacy that’s laughable

        according to the news South Dakota State is a qbu which is bs lol. the news was saying that they turn out a ton of nfl qbs and I thought that was a good laugh. To me the they just scared to lose that money by moving up to play with the big boys so the competition is not as good .

        as for fields I think he will have injury issues throughout his career that’s my opinion. he’s talented but I think he won’t hit potential due to injuries and the team he’s on

  1. BG99

    Fields will also be considered….

    Okay, he was considered, Jags taking Lawrence at #1.
