Chris Simms: “Fields just scares me. I’m rooting for the person and I hope he proves me wrong, but there are just issues about him throwing the football that I don’t know can be fixed, and they make me worry… It seems like ‘potential’ only means ‘RUNNING, that’s what I’m learning from everybody on Twitter; that you only have ‘potential’ as a player if you can run. I’ve borderline been insinuated as a racist because I think Mac Jones is better than Justin Fields and Trey Lance, which is also crazy.”
Listen to former NFL quarterback and NBC Sports host Chris Simms explain why he has Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields as his sixth-ranked quarterback in the upcoming 2021 Draft, and why he even thinks Fields will plummet all the way to the end of the first round on Thursday night.
Simms has Fields ranked behind Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Trey Lance, Mac Jones, and even Kellen Mond in his QB rankings, and has the Tampa Bay Buccaneers drafting Fields with the no. 32 pick.
