Justin Fields on holding second Pro Day: I’ll show I do same thing everyday

Quarterback Justin Fields was the star attraction at Ohio State’s Pro Day workout on Tuesday and he’s ready to do it again.

At a Monday press conference, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said he’d be in Alabama on Tuesday but that Fields will hold a second Pro Day workout before the draft and that he would be in Columbus to check it out.

Fields ran a 4.44-second 40-yard dash and earned plaudits for the throwing portion of the session. After it was over, he said he welcomed the chance to let people know that he can perform that way consistently.

“It really doesn’t just happen one time,” Fields said, via Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Media. “I want to show I do the same thing everyday.”

Assuming Fields’ second workout comes together next month, Shanahan’s unlikely to be the only one watching to see if Fields provides proof of that.

  1. I’d like the Lions to draft this guy. If the system is changing I’d like to shift to a scrambler.

  2. Obviously guys like Jameis Winston and Jamarcus Russell did everything well enough at their pro days to justify being the number one pick. Tom Brady and Joe Montana weren’t impressive at their pro days, so they went in the 3rd and 6th rounds. Still going to pro days? What are they looking for?

  3. Quarterbacking is a lot more than throwing passes or running. It is about making the right decision as whether to throw long, short, or throw it out of bounds, all in a split second. It is about reading defenses and coverages. It is about staying calm during the 2 minute offense. These pro days cannot reveal much about these key characters of being a good quarterback and a smart quarterback. Nevertheless, pro days do allow coaches to talk to the quarterbacks and find out what kind of people they are. The last thing Shanahan wants is to draft a prima donna like Jay Cutler or RGIII.
