  • I don't listen to Kiper or McShay. They routinely mess up QB evaluations. Chris Simms is my go to for QB evaluations and he has said routinely that Fields is the #5 QB that has issues with mechanics and decision making. Considering Simms track record, people need to take him serious and put their fandom aside. If Fields busts, a lot of people will get fired for taking him too high.

  • Wilson under throws and plays risky hero ball. It’s cute in college but against pro-bowl ranked defenders?... he has some impressive angled arm throws that no one else is throwing but again it’s just cute little flea flickers. Dude be lookin like this ☺️ after every throw like he just beat his little brother

    • @Paid Tourist doubt it luck wasn’t and wouldn’t be and neither will he. I think him and luck were both Phillip river tier QBs. I see fields being better because he’ll have a better coach and organization along with the fact that he’s more talented all around. But just lacks in read progression. If he’s with Belichick omg.

    • That's the reality for most QB drafted in top 3. The team they get drafted sucks. Now at least the Jets have more draft capital to support Wilson.

    • @Paid Tourist The league didn't even give Russell Wilson a first round grade, which is why he fell to the 3rd round...thanks you just proved my point...most of theses first round qb's that these "analysts" project become bust and most of the best qb's come in the later rounds
