In the past few months, observers and analysts of various NFL drafts seem to agree that among quarterbacks, the value of Justin Field has plummeted. Not so fast, which reminded them of Ohio State Buckeye’s prospects on a flawless Pro Day.
Strangely, before entering the NCAA last season, many people believed that Clemson regarded Trevor Lawrence as a potential first choice, followed by Justin Fields. . However, since then, the off-season of “over-analysis” has turned many views upside down.
BYU’s Zach Wilson seems to have easily placed second in the quarterback rankings of many observers, and will therefore be the target of the Jets, which are ranked second in the auction.
And Trey Lance of North Dakota, another outstanding athlete with a cannon arm. However, in the case of Lance and Wilson, both faced moderate levels of competition. However, talent appraisers are salivating.
There is also the mysterious case of Mac Jones. The ranking of the Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback seems to be soaring, and just a few months ago, he was not even considered a potential first-round pick. He played with the receivers who broke everything in 2020 (Devonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle), in addition to defeating Najee Harris and worthy one Look at the NFL offensive line, which helps expand his reputation.
Last Friday, the 49ers won the third overall pick of the Dolphins. According to reports from many American media, Jones is the target player for Kyle Shanahan and his team. If this is the case, it is puzzling.
This is why Justin Fields’ career day is so important. Even though there is much more relevant environment for evaluating quarterbacks than the choreography that is torn apart, Fields reminded him (unofficial) that he was a rare player for the second 4.44 game at 40 yards. athlete. So far, the only quarterback selected as a quarterback, the better one was Robert Griffin III (4.41) in 2012, but his knee was removed. It should be noted that Lamar Jackson, the explosive quarterback of the active Ravens, did not participate in the formal exercise.
Fields is more than just a good time. His cup of tea is usually outside the shadow line and moving at full speed, passing deep. He has shown it in the game, but many people still remember it.
As proof, the analysis site Pro Football Focus has released a rather interesting statistic in the last few hours. Of the five point guards expected to be selected in the first round, Justin Fields is the one with the lowest percentage of wins in comfortable model games such as veil passes and options competitions. In this case, only 8.5% of his income was recorded, which makes Pivots’ life easier. Trey Lance (11.2%), Zach Wilson (12.1%), Mac Jones (22.5%) and Trevor Lawrence (27%) benefited more from these passes, and the readings of these passes are usually more pronounced.
“He showed everything he needed to push the ball deep with amazing precision. After Pro Day, his head coach in Ohio, Ryan Day, praised that anyone here can see his life and skin tone. How talented.
Exactly, the head coach of the 49ers, Kyle Shanahan, chose to go to Alabama to participate in Mac Jones Pro Day. A career day obviously does not have the same status, and the quarterback missed the goal in several long passes. For a player who has been very talented in a system with minimal risk-taking, he may not hurt his career, but it does not increase his value.
“I want to prove that this is the pass I get in training every day. In the case of a game, I will follow the system and will not disrupt the game plan. But it is important to prove that my footwork is creative and that I Not a statue. I want to prove that I can deepen. I missed some passes, but it’s not worse than that,” he commented before investigating the rumors that sent him to San Francisco.
