PRO CAREER:



The Chicago Bears selected the Ohio State quarterback with the 11th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft
The Bears acquired the 11th overall selection after completing a trade with the New York Giants. The Bears received New York's 11th overall pick in exchange for Chicago's 20th overall pick, its fifth-round pick (No. 164) and the Bears' first- and fourth-round selections in 2022
Fields becomes just the third Ohio State quarterback in the common draft era to be selected in the first round of an NFL draft, joining Art Schlichter (No. 4 overall pick in 1982) and Dwayne Haskins (No. 15 overall pick in 2019)
Fields is the 31st Buckeye to be selected by the Bears and the first since Marcus Freeman in 2009. He becomes the only Ohio State player on the Bears 



A 6-3, 227-pounder, Fields comes to Chicago following a two-year stay in Columbus where he compiled a 20-2 record as a starter while completing 396-of-579 passing attempts for 5,373 yards with 63 touchdowns. He earned Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year honors after both of his seasons as a Buckeye while leading Ohio State to two Big Ten Championships and two College Football Playoff appearances.
