    Flacco had a cannon compared to Jones.

    Yeah, but how any times in a game does a NFL QB even attempt to throw it 74 yards?



    Jones claims he can throw it 65 yards; however, accuracy is almost always more important than distance:

    If they traded up to draft Mac frickin' Jones, I give up.

    What’s happening to Justin in the run up to the draft is ridiculous. As if I could root for him any harder in the league I cannot wait until he starts to show out. A lot of assholes will be eating crow

    No other QB has been picked apart as much as Justin. Guy was almost dead set as #2 pick last year, fights to play a season, leads team to a CFP birth, beats all-world Clemson and now everyone wants to dice him up.

    Do people forget the Clemson game already? That Olave pass? He’s got flaws but teams and experts act like he’s the only one. Ridiculous.

    Hope it’s all smokescreens and he goes top-5. But I guess dropping to a better situation works too.

    Yeah meanwhile Mac Jones a QB that exists practically any year I mean what's the difference between him and Trask gets elevated. So does Trey Lance who has the upside of Justin fields but he downside Josh Allen. I don't get the fascination there. A less finished product with similiar upside?

    Fields also played hurt multiple times during his tenure at tOSU and showed his durability and toughness under the biggest spotlight. He’s got an arm, well above average accuracy and mobility. He did have a few clunker games this year but damn this year had so many curveballs that it’s more impressive how he bounced back. He did have a few challenges with decisiveness on reads and held on to the ball too long. All things that he showed improvement on as a 2nd year starter. I also could see some negative bias due to tOSU limited history producing NFL success at the QB position. All that said, you could pick apart any of the top 5. He’ll be fine and get his shot in the league. May lose a lot in his first contract but if he works and produces in the league he’ll be just fine.

    I just hope he doesn't go to Atlanta. Not that Atlanta is bad but after seeing all the issues Haskin's had being too close to the rider ons though fields appears more mature I'd rather not risk it. That's why San Fran would be perfect. Good org and way away from any potentions "cousins" etc
