Weaknesses:


For Justin Fields, his pre-snap reads are still a work in progress. Though he has made visible improvements from his first year with Ohio State in this domain, Fields needs to work on identifying blitzes. As expected with most mobile quarterbacks, Fields has a tendency of holding on to the ball longer than he should; as a result, he tends to unnecessary hits. With limited starter experience, Fields needs to improve his ability to work quicker though his reads and progressions. Though the patience is there in this aspect, he needs to be aware that his time pocket will be considerably less at the next level.
