We should be set for a number of years at the QB position for a number of years. But this is the NFL, which has been known to stand for "Not for Long". I expect a full and vigorous rebound from Baker in 2020, but......
Just for arguments sake, let's say things go horribly wrong in 2020 and Baker falls off the rails. That probably puts us in a top 5 draft position. It puts Justin Fields within striking range. Let's take a look at his game.
First thing that jumps at me is he has prototypical NFL QB size. He's 6'3" and 220 lbs. That's perfect size to stand up to the rigors of an NFL season and the AFC North in particular.
He had a stellar running back at Ohio State in J.K. Dobbins. In Cleveland, we have Nick Chubb. No drop of at all. He had a ton of receiving weapons in Columbus, same here.
He moves well laterally to keep plays alive. We have seen that prick down the turnpike do that many times to get his level of success. Justin's climbs the pocket well. That is also a product of seeing the field well. He knows when to step up to deliver the ball from the most advantageous position.
Justin has a really strong arm, a key component to cutting through the intimidating winds off Lake Erie in December and January. But the best part about his arm is his accuracy. I cannot remember him having more than 4 or 5 picks last year, and the Buckeyes threw the ball a lot.
And lastly, he has the ability to scorch you with his running ability. He is the total package.
