There’s a lot of hype around the quarterbacks taken in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. But when it comes to Chicago Bears No. 11 overall pick Justin Fields, one NFL analyst only needed two words to describe him.
In a recent interview with Fox News, NFL analyst Brian Baldinger revealed that Fields was his second-favorite quarterback in the draft. He said he doesn’t believe Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy is going to ride with veteran Andy Dalton for long.
Baldinger declared that Fields is “pure juice” and has all of the talents needed to succeed. He believes that Fields’ teammates will quickly let the Bears staff know he’s ready.
“My second favorite quarterback in the NFL Draft was Justin Fields,” Baldinger said. “I listen to everything that Matt Nagy said and I don’t believe any of it. It’s not a knock on Andy Dalton. We know what Dalton is going to do for you. But Justin Fields is like pure juice. He’s got it all.”

Justin Fields spent three years in college football – one as the backup at Georgia and two as the starter for Ohio State. He was good in spot duty for the Bulldogs but sensational for the Buckeyes.
In two years as a starter he never lost a regular season game and led the Buckeyes to the College Football Playoff twice. While he failed to win the national championship or the Heisman Trophy, he absolutely dazzled through the air and on the ground.
After finishing his college career, he entered the 2021 NFL Draft, where the Bears traded up to take him.
While he isn’t expected to start Week 1, the team has designated him the future of the franchise.
