Justin Fields, Ohio State

Fields has fallen behind Wilson on many draft boards since the season concluded. It is a shocker as the Ohio State product has done nothing but make explosive plays while in college. After transferring from Georgia, this player has been watched closely by NFL teams. The NFL Draft will have many different ups and downs for prospects and a prospect ultimately just needs one team to like them enough.

Fields is a winner that brings the most athleticism to this prospect pool. He can run when needed with blazing speed. Or he can stop and launch a dart over the middle of the field. One of the things people do not talk about enough for this kid is his toughness. He was beaten up during their playoff run but he was able to stick in there and play.

Ohio State would go onto lose the Nation Championship to Alabama but that was a stacked team. Fields did his best to keep his team in it but it wasn’t enough. He should impress a lot of scouts during his workouts and the testing that comes along with that. Fields has done nothing but dominate at the college level and his athleticism should intrigue many NFL teams.
