Justin Fields will be participating in a second pro day at Ohio State next week.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and The Athletic's Matt Barrows both reported Wednesday that Fields plans to hold another throwing workout at Ohio State next Wednesday, April 14, and that the top decision-makers of the San Francisco 49ers – who hold the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL draft – will be in attendance.

While Fields already had a spectacular performance in his first pro day throwing workout last week, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch reportedly requested the opportunity to watch Fields throw in person after they skipped Fields' first pro day to attend Alabama's second pro day, which was held on the same day as Ohio State's first pro day.

Because NFL teams are not allowed to hold private workouts this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the second pro day will be open to all 32 NFL teams – and Fields won't be the only Buckeye participating. Shaun Wade, who has been recovering from a turf toe injury, will also be working out on April 14 after skipping the first pro day.

An Ohio State spokesperson said he did not know yet whether any of Ohio State's other draft prospects planned to participate in the second pro day, which is scheduled for a 9 a.m. start at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center next week.
