On Tuesday, ESPN released the NFL’s 25 under-25s for the current situation. An ESPN+ article ranks Justin Fields as his 21st-best under-25 player. With that in mind, is that the right ranking for Ohio products?
Is that fair to Justin’s play? There are only three quarterbacks on the list, and he is four if you include honorable mentions. Aside from Fields, Jalen Hartz and Tua Tagovailoa grace the list, with Trevor Lawrence listed as an honorable mention.
What this means for fields
Hertz and Tagovailoa are 9th and 10th on the list respectively. There is no doubt that both players are very good. In addition, he was also selected in Justin Fields’ previous year’s draft. What that should show is that third years are very important for the young quarterback’s big advance. Both have been sensational this season and their advances should get fans excited about Justin Fields’ trajectory .

As for Lawrence, he’s getting better and better, but he’s not perfect yet. why? Their team went out and acquired elite receivers and built around quarterbacks while playing to their strengths, and now they’re one of the best players in the league under the age of 25. . There’s no reason Justin Fields can’t be in next season.
Is No.21 fair?
Honestly, I think number 21 on this list is a fair place. Looking at the rest of the list, the league has plenty of talented players under his 25s. To be considered one of his elite quarterbacks early in his career is a compliment in itself.
“He’s done more with fewer players than anyone in the league.” As his ranking description shows, it’s 100% true. Justin Fields is a true double threat. Given a dominant No. 1 like Cole Koumet, Chase Claypool and Darnell Mooney, and an improved offensive line, Fields could take that big step in year three.
What we will say is that despite the state of the team around him, Fields’ garnering his respect is considerable evidence of his talent and advantage. , with great talent in both legs and arms, has what it takes to be that guy. Adding his presence to the list allows him to honestly say that the Bears have a legitimate QB in the organization.
