Bears Trade Up, Take Justin Fields at No. 11 Overall

Videos by OutKick

With the No. 11 pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears have selected Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields thanks to a blockbuster trade with the New York Giants.

The Giants give up the No. 11 pick and the Bears give New York their No. 20 overall selection and the No. 164 pick this year, along with a 2022 first-round pick, and a 2022 fourth-round pick, Windy City Gridiron reports.

Sadly, it looks like Andy Dalton may not be QB1 after all.

    • Let’s go back all the way to 1982 with Ohio St QB’s, as you will see outside of Mike Tomszack and maybe Kent Graham most of these guys were awful in the NFL (Tom Tupa became a punter for goodness sakes): Art Schlichter; Mike Tomszak; Tom Tupa; Kent Graham; Bobby Hoying; Joe Germaine; Craig Krenzel; Troy Smith; Terrelle Pryor (became a WR); Cardale Jones; and Dwayne Haskins. Face it Buckeye fans your QB’s are really good in college (and sometimes great) but trash in the NFL.

  1. Consistently stupid, legendary incompetent brain trust in Chicago. The genius management team once again confuses brain trust with hernia truss. Once again the management team is holding their balls, wondering why their dickless panties are not curing their double hernia I do not know how Da Bears sell ticket one. I feel bad for Justin. Failed coaches, ignorant GM and pathetic ownership. The conversation this weekend in Chi-town will be “Does a double hernia belt really work, or is transgender surgery the only cure?” Looks like a 6-10 season for the misfits of the midway.

  2. The thing that always worries me about quarterbacks from great college football teams is how they haven’t faced much in game adversity. Guys like fields and Mac Jones haven’t had to lead their team down the field on game-winning drives, battle back much in games, or make huge throws in tight windows. They had NFL receivers going against corners that were not draft picks, and o lines that protected them. There’s a marked difference between all the other quarterbacks and Trevor Lawrence when you watch them play that’s for sure. We have to wait and see how much composure these guys have under actual pressure.

  3. No quarterback drafted from 2009-2016 is with the team that drafted them. The same teams continually mortgage their future drafts to take a quarterback that doesn’t end up panning out. If you aren’t placing the highest value on your own draft picks, then you are admitting as a GM that you don’t draft well. Because if you drafted well, you’d rarely let those high picks go.

    • I think you meant first round quarterback picks right? There are still three quarterbacks drafted in that window with their original teams but none were first round picks. Prescott, Carr, Wilson. I think you have a point about the first round picks though. Luck was the best prospect of the bunch but got hurt so much he never took Indy where they’d hoped. It’s a high failure rate for sure. I think Lawrence is a no doubter but the rest are all iffy.
