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.
You're seriously bagging on OSU QBs as a predictor of Fields' success, but then you say they could have taken Mac Jones? Name an Alabama QB that's been worth a $h!t in the NFL.
I tend to agree with both of you and it was part of the reason why I made this post. Fields is an athlete no doubt but, you can’t discount the truth that OSU QBs typically don’t work out. I don’t know why. Chicago really had no choice but, they definitely gave up more than I think most of their fans wanted to. But, I know their fan base also has to be happy to have some encouragement at that position.
Maybe because they’re surrounded by talent, they shine on college. Plenty of QBs, like Burrow for example, have had talented receivers, lines, etc in college and have went off and played well in the NFL.
