Just over a month from now, we all witness Trevor Lawrence being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 Draft.
After that selection, there are an assortment of quarterbacks who would love to be the next one off the board. Justin Fields wants to make sure it is him to hear his name next.
The former Ohio State Buckeyes QB took to social media to showcase just how amazingly fast he can be once he reaches the league.
Fields ran a 4.41-second 40-yard dash.
In 2020, Fields was 141-of-192 (73.4%) passing for 1,906 yards with 21 touchdowns and six interceptions to go along with 75 carries for 316 yards and five scores.
By far his most impressive performance came in the College Football Playoff semifinals when he destroyed the Clemson Tigers.
Former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer said Fields will be a wild success in the NFL.
“He’s a tough guy,” Dilfer said. “I’ve read through all of the evaluations of these players. And everybody has a lot of good stuff to say. The one biggest thing missing in their evaluations is their toughness. This is a position where you have to be a tough guy, physically and mentally. Both Trevor and Justin are tough guys. Justin is a tough man’s tough guy. People will point to the playoff and say we saw him play injured. It’s more than that. It’s the mental and emotional resolve that he’s showed in his high school and college years, what happened to him at Georgia, the transfer to Ohio State, negative talk around him. All of the different things that happened in his life, he’s developed grit and resolve and toughness that I will stamp it right now. He’ll be a wild success in the NFL because of that.”
