Chicago Bears
Active BYE Week: 8 QB
Chicago Bears

Bears traded up with the Giants to select Ohio State QB Justin Fields with the No. 11 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Giants get the 20th pick, a 2021 fifth rounder, and the Bears' first round and fourth round picks in 2022. Deemed "QB1" by the Bears in March, Andy Dalton's run as Chicago's starter ended before it began. Fields somehow fell outside the top-ten, prompting the Bears to make a move and get their quarterback of the future. Fields (6'3/227) played one partial season at Georgia before taking over the starting job at Ohio State. He went 22-2 with the Buckeyes, only losing to Clemson and Alabama in the College Football Playoff. Between zone reads and scrambles, he averaged 39.4 rushing yards per game in Columbus and showcased 4.44 speed at his pro day. Fields can hit all throws from far-hash outs to downfield shots and has largely dodged turnovers (9 career INTs). Like Russell Wilson and Deshaun Watson, Fields is prone to taking sacks while waiting for the downfield shot to develop, but Ohio State’s offense invited that style of play and his in-pocket strength makes him a difficult quarterback to fully corral. Ultimately, there are more positives than negatives in Fields’ pass game. He averaged 9.3 yards per target with a 22/6 TD/INT ratio and 70 percent completion percentage across eight games as a junior against one of the hardest strengths of schedule. Like Trey Lance, he fits the mold of the dual-threat QB archetype proliferating across the league. Fields will be a popular mid-to-late round fantasy pick come August.  Apr 29 9:42 pm (EST)
