Justin Fields

The Chicago Bears traded up in the first round. They moved from pick 20 to 11 but making a huge trade with the New York Giants. Some people won’t like that they no longer have a first-round pick for 2022 but they have their quarterback now. Of course, they selected Justin Fields out of Ohio State University. He is a quarterback that has had tremendous success with them as a college player.

Justin Fields has a chance to be an all-time great Chicago Bears player.

Everyone around Chicago, for the most part, loves this pick. He has the potential to be one of the best quarterbacks that the team has ever had. It isn’t saying much because they really don’t have anyone in their history that stands out as amazing. He still could provide the stability that Bears’ fans have been waiting for at the position for decades.

When the Bears traded up, there was still a shade of doubt that they may not do the right thing because Ryan Pace has been so awful as a GM. Well, this has been his chance to make it right. If he hits on Fields, there is a good chance that they are going to be a good football team in no time. Everyone knows that having a good quarterback is the key to success in the National Football League.

Final Grade: A+
