Richard Sherman doubled up, explaining how he thought Fields would also be number 3 of the 49ers in third place. The longtime NFL cornerback said this on the “Chris Collinsworth Podcast with Richard Sherman”.
Other NFL draft experts don’t seem as convinced, however.
Mel Kiper Jr., for example, lets the New England Patriots move up from 15th to 10th to pick Fields who would be fifth quarterback behind Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Mac Jones and Trey Lance.
Co-design expert Daniel Jeremiah lets Fields slip a little as the fifth QB in his latest draft. Jeremiah also expressed how he thought the Patriots rate the Ohio State product “really high”.
The Patriots had what it’s worth, a three-man contingent, including offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who attended Fields’ second Pro Day practice on Wednesday. What that means, or whether New England is ready to part with draft capital to land Fields, we probably won’t know until the NFL draft kicks off on April 29th.
