Exactly. Name one OSU QB that went on to have NFL success as a qb. They all look like superstars in college but never pan out in the NFL. I don't know why. Scheme? OSU's history of stellar WRs? Who knows? Plus, this kid couldn't beat out Jake Fromm at Georgia? Bears could have taken Mac Jones. He isn't as athletic as Fields but I think he is a better QB.
That’s just a lame argument. It’s true until it’s not. You can’t make a real decision based on it.
Name a QB from Texas Tech before Mahomes. You can make this argument about almost any school. Most Ohio State QBs are famous, but no highly drafted. Haskins is the exception, not the rule. Troy Smith was a late pick. Cardale Jones was a late pick. Braxton Miller switched positions. You judge every QB independently.
I mean, name a school that’s even had more than one. Stanford?
Fields may or may not be good, but it has zilch to do with the school he attended.
I mean people used to say the exact same thing about Jeff Tedford QBs...until Aaron Rodgers.
If you skip guys because of “history” like that, you are doomed to make big mistakes.
