Justin Fields brings hope to the Bears offense

Stop all the Trevor Lawrence mania.

Chicago Bears rookie Justin Fields is no slouch as he tries to become the franchise quarterback that the Bears have coveted and needed for so many years.

NFL Network's Cynthia Frelund talked to 16 different NFL scouts, and several had Fields graded higher than Lawrence.

“I spoke to a number of scouts who told me their actual grades,” Frelund said. “(Fields) was QB1 for about half of them. I talked to 16, so that’s 8.”

Fields can bring it with accuracy in the passing game and has decent speed to move the chains.

“This is a guy who adds an element of a run game,” Frelund said. “Five scrambling touchdowns, 636 scrambling yards. He has the clean pocket, best passer situation: 54 touchdowns, just four interceptions from that clean pocket. And a chance to develop. And a chance to make Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace have long-term job security situations for the Bears as well.”
