He's a bigger, stronger, faster version of JT Barrett w/ a much stronger arm, w/out Barrett's natural knack for reading the field as a runner. Barrett might have been the best at that particular football skillset since Tommie Frazier at Nebraska in the mid 90s

I get the Watson comparisons, I see Newton (in flashes) there as well.

In Ohio State terms, Fields could be the hybrid result of Braxton and Cardale...

I'd be interested in hear which elements of both that you see he possesses.  And is this an assessment of him currently or a future projection based on potential?

His physical makeup and ability - meet them in the middle size, complete with mobility and a big arm.

So it's potential, as with any incoming recruit. I think he has a ton of work to do, regardless of the outcome of his eligibility situation.

But he definitely looks the part of a big time college QB.

Barton Simmons with a choice assessment, wouldn't be so bad imho.

His words:

"The thumbnail sketch for Fields is 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, a 4.5-second 40-yard dash, No. 1 player in the country and a native of Kennesaw, Georgia. He's strong and physical with the ability to shrug off defensive linemen. He's fast with that blazing 40 time and a propensity to leap over defenders. He's precise as a thrower and he has a huge arm."

If I'm thinking of recent Ohio State quarterbacks in reading that...

Or a mix of Haskins and pre-injury JT.

Maybe he's just more lean. He does have superior athleticism to Dwayne from what his recruiting profile shows. He almost looks like he has sort of a Kenny Guiton build (maybe a little thicker than that).

Watching his high school highlights, he's more of a runner than I expected, with a gun for an arm.  Hard to really get an impression about his ability to quickly diagnose the defense and make the right decisions, read formations and anticipate guys to be open and so forth.  His physical tools give him a sky high upside, but I'm not nearly as sold on him as most everyone appears to be.  

He would appear to be better suited to run a Ryan Day offense than Martell is -- Martell seems like the perfect fit for an Urban Meyer running QB system.

HS
TheBadOwl's picture

Martell seems like the perfect fit for an Urban Meyer running QB system.

Meyer always relied a ton on running the QB inside the tackles and for short-yardage gains. Tate can be good in a system like that, but I think would be best suited for a system like the one UCF runs, actually, since it's a lot of tempo and triple option out of the spread.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

I'd prefer the conversation stick to his college highlights as we all know HS highlights mean very little when you're talking about potentially being the starting QB at OSU.  What do you think of his arm strength, vision, release, speed, etc?  That kind of thing...

HS
BuckAlum09's picture

If possible, avoid comparing him to any existing players on the roster.  I think it's best to avoid the comparison game especially with players that certain posters here may be partial to, just to avoid tempers flaring and to keep this thread on the level.

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

HS
BuckAlum09's picture

On his feet the kid seems fearless. Doesn't just run out of bounds or slide. Takes it to the defender, fights for the extra yards. Pocket collapsing and getting pressured, he holds his cool and delivers the ball despite the imminent hit he's about to take. Also has the vision and presence to get out of trouble and extend the play. My biggest concern surrounding him right now would be getting injured/taking so many hits. Get the first down, and then get down/out of bounds young blood.

I can't really comment on his passing ability at the moment. The highlight videos are 80% him being athletic, 20% standing tall and delivering a good ball.

In regards to past roster stars: I see A LOT of TP2 in his extending of a broken play. Some BM5 in his elusiveness and confidence. And plenty of JTB's old fashioned, hard nosed, down hill running.

Prayers that he can spin it like TS10 and DH7 (retraction of this one if Simba stays, per your rules above.)

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

No I think it's safe to consider DH7 as a former player at this point :)

His wheels and power when hitting a tackler seem to be light years ahead of Haskins. He is a kid who will be able to go from day 1 because of his scrambling ability. Didnt really force anything and took off. Thats surprising for a backup who was trying to impress. Sky is the limit. Watson is his ceiling. Griffin III?

jdecot's picture

Based on the review of Fields film from 7v7 tournaments, high school games and Georgia, I would agree with the poster's above that he has the foundation of a good skill set to be an elite quarterback, but needs tutelage from Coach Day to become one. Fields is a willing runner and sometimes too much so. There are times in his game films where he takes off as soon as the pocket collapses or at the first sign of feeling pressure. There are times in his game film where he stares down the primary receiver and takes off because that receiver is not open. He has the arm strength and physical ability to make all the throws, but his game film really only shows short throws with some deep passes mixed in. 

HS
Earthoid.'s picture

Decisive runner, less-decisive passer, I think.  Regarding his arm strength, it seems fine.  I find he has a bit of a knuckle ball release like it doesn't spin off his hand quite right which seems to take some speed off the ball.  I don't think it's a strength issue, necessarily.  What do you think?

aj99's picture

I agree with you silver bullet. I don't see him doing anything that Tate or Baldwin can't do on this or his high school film. I think was a strange move for Day to make, because of the obvious effect in the locker room. The likelihood we see worst case scenario is higher than seeing best case scenario.  Somewhere in the middle really isn't all that great either. Already have a fractured qb room which will likely lead to Martell transferring. No way would I have made this move. It's sexy, to the fans but questionable to the players on the team- not the way I would want to start my tenure.

HS
buckslan's picture

With Yurcich and Day coaching him, I have no doubt in my mind we will be getting an elite passer and an elite runner. I cannot wait to see him sling the ball all over the field this year, and run read options with Dobbins and tucking it in and picking up 15 yards on the outside. If the OL holds up (now losing 4 starters) the offense has the potential to be better in 2019 than 2018 due to the added dimensions of Fields using his legs.

Agree that he could be dangerous after both those guys get their hands on him.

My personal assessment is he looks to be an extremely talented kid.  Since I am no QB guru though, I would tend to rely on the observations of those who are better schooled in QB play or QB recruiting.

Trent Dilfer, heaping praise on Fields due to his approach, engagement, and work ethic.  Also a note in there from Elite 11 director Yogi Roth who says “Justin is the best quarterback I’ve seen in the nine years I’ve been here.”

Bruce Feldman:

Steve Wiltfong and Barton Simmons talking about how impressive Fields is as a QB prospect: "(Fields') best quality is grasping new information, digesting it quickly and executing it flawlessly."

He is a talented player who will either win the starting job or push others to be better in order to win the starting QB job.  Competition is good and he has gotten rave reviews wherever he has competed.

Great arm, great feet, needs work on seeing the entire field and knowing when/if to tuck it and run or wait for that split second for his man to come open. I also worry a little about leadership abilities it was a short stay at Georgia......

HS
I'm Ron Burgundy's picture

I'm not seeing Braxton or Pryor level top end speed in the highlights.  There's more than a couple runs those guys would have housed that he gets tracked down.  Looks like a more explosive version of JT running the ball (which is to say, very very good). Because he has that build and power in his running game if he wants to.

Passing is difficult to evaluate.  Definitely a very strong arm, but is going to take him some development time as with any young QB.

And there is everyone's favorite QB measurement - intangibles - probably biggest wildcard with him.  Definitely not going to judge him based on Freshman year highlights and his decision to jump ship after 1 year at a program.  So we won't know how well he integrates with the locker room and fits the culture until sometime next year.

All said and done, hope he is like JT with enhanced physical tools. That would be one scary QB.

HS

Fields has run laser timed 4.51 40...that is pretty fast. Miller ran a 4.50 at the NFL Combine. Pryor os definitely faster than both.

HS
hnyg8modonwelfare's picture

And Miller was was 1000x better than both as a runner.  And JT Barrett was the slowest and it can be argued he was the best runner of them all.

Fields running is OK I guess.  He looks about the same as Haskins as a runner. 

Thank you Urban Meyer and Gene Smith

He's extremely talented. My only questions regarding him is if he's a leader or not? Will be have respect of the offense and team from Day 1? Will be lead us to victory when we're down 2 scores late in the 4th quarter on the road at night in a hostile environment?

We’re in a unique scenario where we can get a pretty good assessment of him because about 3 hours of documentary exists solely about him, his family and his game. 

Pros: All the physical tools and attributes you could want, Steps up and holds the pocket but can escape if it collapses, accurate passer, good family and he is a leader.

Cons: More concerned about personal stats than team wins, tries to out coach the coach, doesn’t stick to his checkdowns, immature but light years beyond Martell on the maturity scale.

In short to me, he looks like everything Terrelle Pryor was supposed to be but much better Upside because of Day’s innovative nature

Best comp for me is simply a more athletic JTB.  He runs as hard as JT and scrambles well when the play breaks down.  Doesn't have the shake and bake of a Braxton Miller.  More of a north/south runner but with a good first step for his size.

HS
CincyBuck's picture

My honest assessment: Watson is the best comparison.  Looking at their respective frosh highlights, Field's arm talent seems a little bit better.  Running ability pretty similar (though I recall Watson being a hair faster, but, perhaps, a bit less shifty).

Arm talent?  It's hard to judge well without referencing his earlier highlights.  Like Tate, he was often brought in to run the ball.  But even from the limited college highlights that involve passing, the ball comes off hot.  It's worth noting that many of the throws he's making are a higher degree of difficulty than those that Watson's making in his frosh highlights (e.g., a bullet on a rope, across the field, on an out pattern is a better show of raw arm strength than a 20-30 yard lofted pass).

Speed and quickness?  No one's as fast as TP, IMO.  Likewise, I think no one has the short-area quickness of Brax.  But Fields seems to be somewhere in the middle (quicker than TP; as fast or faster than Brax when he was a true frosh).

He shows decent pocket awareness for a young kid.  And his high school highlights show some good touch on his throws.  That said, as is the case with most young QBs, I suspect he'll need to work on both.

Vision and the mental side is tough to gauge based on the limited sample size.  But he seems more than capable, both in the high school and college highlights I've seen.  And, allegedly, he's a hard worker.  So with Day's (and now Yurcich) help, hopefully he's a quick study.

HS

The knock from this year was largely on the UGA playcalling and it will sound very familiar: Fields was often put in the game in RPO situations without any real option to throw, making him one-dimensional, the offense predictable, and any real game-time development impossible. 

In so many words, we don't know save for his HS assessment and athletic ability. 

HS
OldColumbusTown's picture

Bingo, and I believe that is a big reason for his transfer.  Immediate eligibility or not, Fields was likely not happy with how his first year of QB development and utilization went at UGA, with no real improvement in sight next year.

HS
avail31678's picture

I'd say he leans a bit more to the side of being a run-first QB, but that could just be the limited selection of plays he ran and the play calls.  

But he is electric running, and he's quite adept at throwing the ball.  Throwing motion looks pretty natural (remember TP's awkward shot put motion?).

I'm excited.  

HS
OldColumbusTown's picture

He has all the tools.  Maybe more tools to work with than any QB prospect that has come into college football in the last decade.  He may be raw with some of those tools, but he's shown he can put them all together and perform at an extremely high level against the best of the best in his class (Elite 11).

This is all about Ryan Day and the development Justin Fields believes he will get by being coached by Ryan Day.  I've heard his own personal QB coach, Quincy Avery, rave about Day.  This is also the personal QB coach of Deshaun Watson.  I've heard NFL analysts (Louis Riddick, in particular) rave about Ryan Day and his pro-style offensive philosophy at the college level.

Many (not necessarily on 11W) want to call Fields a quitter for leaving Georgia, or say he has no loyalty, or question why he thought he would beat out Fromm in the first place.  What if his reason for transferring was not so much that he did not beat out Fromm, but instead that he felt he was not receiving the best development he could at the position?  Dwayne Haskins, other than by Buckeye Nation, was not being considered a 1st round NFL pick before this season began.  He's now being talked about and projected by most to be a top 10 NFL draft pick as a RS Sophomore and 14 career starts. 

Fields isn't dumb.  Whether he gets immediate eligibility or not, my bet is he believes either way he will receive the best possible QB coaching and development he can get at the college level under Ryan Day instead of what he was getting at Georgia.

He's JT with better wheels and a CANON for an arm. He flips it 50 yards with zero effort. He can run and has a fantastic QB IQ. Pryor and Braxton were more athlete then straight up QB. Fields is a QB. 

His ceiling is Cam Newton with a better football IQ...  it's really scary... you could say take the best part of JT, Cardale and Braxton... and that mix is in the ballpark of what Fields ceiling could be..

I question his character. He signed on at UGA knowing the QB room and since things didn't turn out the way he had hoped he now wants to circumvent the transfer rules by using a racial incident that happened a few months ago as the reason he should be granted a waiver of the rules. I say bullshit. The means don't justify the ends. Where I come from and the way I was raised you're a reflection of your character. As much as I'd like to see him here competing for the job, do it the right way and follow the rules. Fuck these prima donna athletes that think because they have talent they're entitled to special treatment

How do you KNOW what he wants ???... How do you KNOW, thats why he is transferring ???... Fields hasnt said anything, its purely speculation...

Do you know why the NCAA makes you wait a year ???... Care to take a guess ???... Ill help you out, its for academic purposes... The NCAA thinks it helps you adjust to your new school and allows you to focus of academics... If im a 3.0-4.0+ student athlete and I transfer, why do I need a year to focus on academics ???... By all accounts, Fields is a great student, who had Ivy League offers... If his academics are in order, he will be granted immediate eligibility... The NCAA was already considering an academic exception, before Fields transferred...

Funny story, I actually went to high school with Sam Hartman who is at Wake Forest now. I used to play football with him in middle school, and he was always the best quarterback. He played defense as well and always led with his head. People hated him. Then he broke his leg in the playoffs. 

Had a good season for Wake though, up until getting hurt.

Yeah, he was originally at Davidson Day with Chad Grier. Chad then resigned and their program folded as a result. Transferred to Hough for the second semester of his junior year. Most thought he would be the starter there on a perennial state power, and were very  surprised for when he transferred to OceanSide in Charleston. Followed Chad Grier, who is the father of WVU QB Will Grier, along with Nash and Hayes international stars lol.

Beantown_Buckeye's picture

The Watson comparison makes sense or a faster version of Haskins. As good as Watson was/is he made more mistakes passing the ball than Haskins did. I'm not sure we can assume Fields could match Haskins having one of the best passing seasons in the history of college football so the Watson comparison probably works best. Obviously these are the high-end ceiling comparisons. Fields will have to earn it.

Justin Fields is on Netflix with QB1 series like the same one Tate was in. It focuses on his senior year of high school.

HS
hnyg8modonwelfare's picture

My assessment of Fields:

Positives:  Strong arm, big body, can be accurate with time.  Good but not great athletic ability, and avg speed for a mobile QB.

Negatives:  This is a huge problem -He does not step up in the pocket.  He runs out of the pocket and starts to scramble too often.  He holds onto the ball and doesn't see the field yet.  Too dependent on his legs.  Indecisive.  Have no idea what he looks like vs a pass rush.  In his GA highlights he has all day to throw and he still struggled to find open WRs.

Bottom line:  He's very raw but has some potential.  He needs to commit the time that OSU QBs have in the QB room and study lots of film.  Hopefully he'll commit to film study that the others have.  Welcome aboard, he's great for depth at this point.

Thank you Urban Meyer and Gene Smith

Dillon G's picture

I watched the first video. It does not show me he can pass like Haskins. A cannon is not what makes Haskins special. It is his intellect. Later in the season he called protection (very well I might add). The flick pass with accuracy and zip is also rare talent, and it is developed.

His running was mostly against bad teams, and I won't hold that against him. I like that he ran mostly north and south and has good speed. That reminded me more of a healthy JT running than Miller, even though he is said to have Miller speed (4.51 according to 24/7). We need to see more to know. In Day I trust.
