Peter King has us taking Justin Fields


Recommended Posts

That top 6 is a perfect scenario. Guarantees we get either Fields or Sewell which are my ideal 2 picks and other than those 2 I would want to trade down. Let's hope he's right.

He’s actually been the most accurate NFL analyst these past two seasons when it comes to mock drafts, for whatever that’s worth.

He only makes one mock draft FYI 

https://sports.nbcsports.com/2021/04/26/peter-kings-final-2021-nfl-mock-draft/

But even he admits here: "As I wrote last week, Carolina hates the fact that the franchise has averaged 6.2 picks per draft in the last eight years when the average team has 8.1. I’m not sure at all they’d use the pick here on Fields, because they’re truly optimistic about Sam Darnold."

He admits that he's only speculating and immediately argues against his own pick with sound logic. If I publicly state a pick I'm confident of I do not go on to explain why my pick makes zero sense.

We need a backup QB even if we keep Darnald . We lose Teddy and that leaves PJ and Grier as our backup QBs .  We will draft a QB at some point in this draft for insurance if Darnald goes down or does not get the job done .

i think Fields is going 3. I just cant bring myself to believe that Lynch would trade up to 3 for a player in Jones that wouldve been there at 6 or below.

Peter King sucks but this pick would make me feel hopeful about 2021. Will Grier and PJ Walker are not unknowns we have seen them in action so a quarterback in one of the early rounds seems inevitable even if Fields isn't available. I know the team is talking up Sam as they should be but they are not rolling the dice with just Darnold without going down swinging on draft night.

Almost has to be the pick of he is there.  I definitely start Darnold and if he plays well he becomes a major asset.  With these rookie QB contracts having Fields as the backup is fine.  Its not like picking up Darnolds option breaks the bank here.  Darnold starting and Fields waiting in the wings is an amazing QB situation IMO.
