Ex-Jets collector Brandon Marshall said he thinks former Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields is the correct piece for his previous group.
Marshall, who played for the Jets from 2015-16, communicated his assessment on who Gang Green should choose in the 2021 NFL Draft in a tweet sent straightforwardly to Jets co-proprietor, Woody Johnson on Wednesday.
It was Johnson who initially took to Twitter on Tuesday to share, “As you know we have pick 2 and 23. Who do you like?” — to which Marshall casually replied, “Hey Woody. Justin.”
Johnson never answered to the tweet freely, however, the reactions from fans fluctuated among Fields and previous BYU quarterback Zach Wilson — the Jets’ assumed single out April 29 in Cleveland.
The Jets are in urgent need of a quarterback in the wake of exchanging Sam Darnold to the Panthers recently for three draft picks — a 6th round pick in 2021 and a second-round and a fourth-round pick in 2022. The exchange came following quite a while of hypothesis regarding how the Jets would manage Darnold following three dull seasons.
In spite of the fact that Marshall said he considers Fields is a qualified for the Jets at No. 2, Richard Sherman — previous 49ers cornerback and now a free specialist — has spread the word about it that he trusts San Fransisco will choose Fields with the third pick, on the off chance that he is on the board. However, it’s assumed the 49ers will choose Alabama’s Mac Jones. Previous Clemson quarterback, Trevor Lawrence is required to go No. 1 to the Jaguars in the QB-weighty draft.
Then, Fields has been at the bleeding edge of pre-draft buzz in light of blended surveys about his latent capacity and style of play.
On Wednesday, Fields took an interest in his second professional day, where the Jets, 49ers, Patriots and Panthers all appeared at draw a nearer take a gander at the 6-foot-3 quarterback. It has been broadly detailed that a lot more groups went to the uncommon second ace day, which was beyond reach to media.
During his first ace day, Fields flaunted his physicality and intrigued with a 4.44-second 40-yard-run.
In only two years at Ohio State, Fields drove the Buckeyes to a 20-2 record. He tossed 67 scores to only nine capture attempts and ran for another 19 scores.
