Why should Ohio State Quarterback Justin Fields be the Chicago Bears’ top target in the 2021 NFL Draft?
If you watched the Allstate Sugar Bowl on Saturday night, the major headlines revolved around 2021 NFL Draft quarterback prospects. Justin Fields of Ohio State and Trevor Lawrence from Clemson. For many, it seemed from the start that Clemson was going to head to another national championship game. For the Chicago Bears, these are two quarterbacks worth watching as the team prepares for the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Bears aren’t getting Lawrence. That’s been set in stone since before the 2020 season even began. However, depending on who the team’s next general manager is, since we don’t know what the future of Ryan Pace looks like. However, even if Pace is picking and Matt Nagy is retained as head coach, Fields needs to be atop the Bears draft board.
