Did you watch the video? They're saying everyone is overthinking this by mocking Justin Fields down to the 5th quarterback off the board. Mark my words, he's gonna be the best quarterback from this class. He's like a Cam Newton and Russell Wilson hybrid. We know the kid can take a hit. He's built for the NFL. 

He had two injuries in a 6 game season last year, playing behind an NFL OL taking hits from college kids

I've always been a big Fields fan, and I would take him at 2.  But I'm pretty certain that's not the way that the Jets are going, and I have come to accept that.

Interesting in the PFT video that Florio mentions that he knows "a former NFL assistant coach" who is absolutely convinced that the Jets are taking Fields.  If that were to be true, JD would be crowned World Poker Champion for life.

True but what would the point of misdirecting when they don’t have to

So how do we come to the conclusion he can take a hit.  He gets hit in the first half of the Clemson game, plays the entire 2nd half hindered and two weeks later against Bama he was obviously hurt.  

Hes not superman, hit him right, he'll break

To what end?  Why would the Jets lead people to believe theyre taking Wilson?  There is no advantage to this, no one can jump ahead and take Fields if hes their guy

Does Florio at least take the time to realize how mindless this theory would be?

Yeah, it's probably not true.  Although, possibly, NFL GMs are so accustomed to bluffing that he just can't help himself.

There's also the long-shot possibility that JD wants to convince the 49ers he prefers Wilson, to encourage them to offer a nice trade to swap picks. He could say, well, I love Wilson but I am prepared to let you have him for #3, plus Nick Bosa and some later picks.  Then he picks the guy he always preferred all along in Fields.

Again, not saying that's true or even likely - just imaging possibilities.

At the end of the day, I'm 99% sure we're picking Wilson at 2.

It's most likely not true - even Florio acknowledges that in the video.  He was just passing on what he heard from this one contact,

Absolutely agree. 

I also think theres NO SHOT that Kyle Shanahan is picking Mac ******* Jones at 3 after a trade up. Hell no!

One of the best offensive coaches / QB guru’s in the league isnt trade up for a game manager. Sorry, the pick with be Lance or Fields to sit behind Jimmy for a season, ala Mahomes/Smith

It seems the only reason to have another pro day is to convince the jets.

The second Alabama pro day was the same day as fields first so a lot of teams went to Alabama's including the 49ers top brass and the patriots. The jets went to fields except salah for personal reasons.

I think the second pro days for Justin Fields and Trey Lance are going to be really interesting. I’m told the tentative plan for both is to have the NFL folks there run the throwing sessions, rather than have their respective throwing coaches (John Beck and Quincy Avery) script the workouts. Which is definitely different, and will probably be more useful for the teams there. Fields’s is set for Wednesday, and Lance’s is a week from Monday. And Fields’s workout, at least for right now, is set to be closed to the media (outside of OSU’s in-house video people), so teams that want to see it will have to make the trip. As of Sunday, I was told just two teams have committed to being in Columbus—the 49ers … and the Patriots. San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan and GM John Lynch are expected to lead the Niners’ contingent to Ohio State (and North Dakota State too). As for the Patriots, this is subject to change, but I wouldn’t be surprised if offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is leading a group there for New England that will likely also max out the three allowable people, under the 2021 pro day rules. And so everyone’s clear on this, with private workouts forbidden because of COVID-19 this year, these workouts have to be open to all teams and, as we said, have attendance limited to three people per NFL team. So these aren’t private workouts. But with NFL teams calling the on-field shots, and actual attendance sparse, they may wind up having that feel.

 

Can you feel the trepidation setting in when contemplating the Patriots trading up to get Justin Fields after Joe Douglas passes on him to draft Zach Wilson.

Fields issues are that he disintegrates under pressure. His instincts in the pocket and his mechanics under duress are just atrocious. You’ll not see any of it tested at the pro-day. He’ll look good playing pitch and catch.

This is one of the dumbest posts I’ve read all year. Flat out wrong and stupid.

I can do it too, watch - Pitts is at his worst when the ball is in the air and he has to catch it. 

You don’t have to like him, but take this trash outside and leave it there. You don’t need to spew the same bullsh*t in every thread. Zero ppl are unclear on your thoughts on Fields.

Not in the smallest bit. Wilson is pretty much #1 or #2 on almost every NFL board for a reason: he is a better prospect than Fields

I mean seriously. Game film is probably 60% of the evaluation of a QB.

And using film you look at the traits the QB has, not the results or competition, but arm strength, release, anticipation, processing speed, situational awareness, placement, touch accuracy, pocket presence.

Wilson is far better at these things than Fields (who is still very good).

You look at athleticism and Fields is ahead. Wilson is far closer than people may realize here.

But the 40% we do not see is super important. 

How does he interview? What is his personality like? What were his work habits? What did his coach and teammates think? Off field issues?

How well can he explain what he did and games and why? Can he break down defenses and protections? (Reminder that Fields had NO responsibility here he was not asked to this)

How well can he retain information? Understand a NFL playbook (Here again Wilson ran a Pro offense, Ohio State ran a true college offense)

What sense do you get of his leadership?

All of this stuff we do not see. Plus there are facts that Fields did not work under shotgun, or do much play action. Fields is a far more unknown prospect in terms of NFL projection than Wilson.

Anyone watching any of the BYU interviews will know that Wilson likely killed it in these areas, we don't know with Fields but he would be less prepared.

Remember, per the GMs own words the evaluation of Fields and Wilson is NOT close.
