The Carolina Panthers Just made a big move by acquiring New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold. Next, they might go for Ohio State’s Justin Fields as he is young and can stay long-term with the Panthers.

Despite adding Darnold and having Teddy Bridgewater in the team, ESPN’s NFL insider Dan Graziano predicted the Panthers to draft another quarterback. This time they might aim for the Buckeyes star, Justin Fields.

Panthers have been on the search for a young and stable quarterback for the team to boost their offense. However, Carolina may need to figure out moving Bridgewater before the 2021 season. 

Considering the performance and facts, Carolina Panthers certainly keep Fields ahead of Darnold for the long-term selection. “Yes if fields is sitting there at eight and they believe Justin fields is a better long-term play for them than Sam Darnold,” Graziano predicted.

On the other hand, the San Francisco 49ers are also waiting to grab Fields at No. 3. So, it becomes a mystery as to where Fields is going to land later this month.

Why do the 49ers aim for Justin Fields?

Currently, the 49ers have three different options for their quarterback position, which includes Justin Fields, Mac Jones, and Trey Lance. However, the 49ers see more potential in Fields as he has excellent athleticism.

Considering Fields’ completion percentage and his efficiency, Fields can be the perfect winner among other quarterbacks on the list. The 49ers are looking for some stable quarterbacks for their pick at No. 3, and Fields is a unique example at the quarterback position. 

Furthermore, Fields is an exceptional runner who can also throw. Besides, he displays extreme toughness and is one of the best athletic people on the football field as well. All these qualities made Justin a perfect choice for the 49ers.
