Justin Fields – QB – Ohio State – 6’3/228lbs
Hometown: Kennesaw, GA
High School: Harrison High School
Scouting Report: Justin Fields is a dynamic prospect at the quarterback position. His unique combination of size and athleticism allow him to be a dominant runner, particularly from QB draws and other designed runs. Fields also has one of the best arms, if not the best, in the 2021 NFL Draft. He has great footwork and balance that allow him to launch the ball deep. Fields does a nice job of keeping his eyes down the field and the QB goes through his progression well during the play. This allows him to share the ball and throw it to multiple receivers during the entirety of the ball game. Fields can fit into any type of NFL offense but the way Ohio State operates out of both shotgun and under center suits his versatility. Coaches should look to place him in a system that utilizes zone-read concepts, as he thrives with a playbook that uses his feet as an added weapon.
