The 49ers’ brass got a first row perspective on Justin Fields on Wednesday, and saw precisely what we definitely thought about the star Ohio State quarterback: He’s an extraordinary competitor with a rocket of an arm.
Fields’ second pro day was off-limits to the media, yet Ohio State posted some absurd throws Fields made to its Instagram account.
Fields broadcasted it out before 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch, and unquestionably intrigued with throws to his left and firing off perfect deep passes on the run. The pro day, obviously, is against air and Ohio State won’t post any terrible throws from Fields, on the off chance that he had any.
This was the first time Shanahan and Lynch had the option to see Fields face to face in front of the 2021 NFL Draft in the wake of deciding to go to Mac Jones’ second pro day at Alabama around the same time as Fields’ first pro day. Groups just are permitted to send three individuals to pro days, and 49ers QB coach Rich Scangarello joined Shanahan and Lynch at Ohio State.
While many figure the 49ers will select Jones with the No. 3 pick in the draft, Fields especially is in play and could be their decision. Previous 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman believes his old team will go with Fields, as does Maurice Jones-Drew and Joe Thomas, who played for Shanahan on the Cleveland Browns.
Fields’ second pro day truly didn’t show us anything new. The 49ers definitely understood what kind of competitor and arm ability he is. Presently we sit back and watch on the off chance that they believe he’s their next franchise QB.
