    Wonder if the players being allowed to receive endorsements might convince a guy like Fields to return for a senior year.

    I doubt any endorsements for a college player would come close to the salary/signing-bonus he'd get as a top-5 NFL pick.

    Quarterback Justin Fields is No. 3 on Kiper’s board, behind Oregon offensive tackle Penei Sewell at No. 2 and Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence at No. 1

    Fields threw for 3,272 yards last year with 41 touchdowns and three interceptions. He completed 67.2% of his passes and also rushed for 484 yards and 10 scores.

    At 6-foot-3 and 228 pounds with a strong, accurate arm and the ability to run very well, Fields is a very enticing draft prospect.

    Here is what Kiper had to say about him.

    “Fields is a legitimate challenger to Lawrence as the top quarterback in this class. The Georgia transfer got immediate eligibility to play in 2019, and he put up huge numbers, finishing third in the Heisman Trophy voting. Fields threw 41 touchdown passes with just three interceptions and added 10 rushing TDs. He was incredibly efficient last season, and he made it look easy. Fields has room to improve, though, in how he sees the field and progresses through his reads. Two of his three picks came in the College Football Playoff game against Clemson, including this one in which he stared down his receiver. There’s a lot to like here about Fields as prospect, and I’m looking forward to seeing another full season from him.”

    Justin Fields now the betting favorite to win 2020 Heisman Trophy

    When it comes to the 2020 Heisman Trophy race, two names have been leading the pack: Justin Fields and Trevor Lawrence. As the season creeps closer, though, it appears the Ohio State quarterback is edging out the Clemson star as the betting favorite.

    According to the William Hill Sports Betting website, Fields is currently listed with the best odds to claim the 2020 Heisman Trophy, nudging Lawrence from that spot. He’s also the only B1G player to be included on the list, tweeted out by the Cover 3 Podcast.

    After accounting for over 3,500 total yards and 50 touchdowns a year ago, Fields is at +350 to claim the Heisman Trophy come December. Lawrence is closely behind at +400.

    Staff picks: Who will be the most productive college football quarterback in 2020?

    Our team discusses who will be the stat monsters at quarterback next season

    Heading into the 2020 season, our staff picked their favorite quarterback to put up massive numbers. These are our best guesses for who is going to lead the country in total yards, touchdowns or both. All of them are familiar names for college football fans, but there's always the chance someone comes out of nowhere to take the sport by storm. Let's get to the contenders.

    Barrett Sallee: Justin Fields, Ohio State

    All Fields did in his first season as a starting quarterback was throw for 3,273 yards, account for 51 touchdowns (41 passing, 10 rushing), earn an invitation to the Heisman Trophy ceremony and lead his team to the College Football Playoff. Not too shabby. Coach Ryan Day will put even more on his plate as a junior, which means he'll put up video game stats comparable to what you put up on the "NCAA Football" video game (RIP). Expect him to be more of a factor in the running game alongside Master Teague and take on more in the passing game. The only thing that could prevent him from putting up 4,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards is if he is so good that he hits the bench to rest up too early in games.

    Dustin Crum?

    Kent fucking State?

    Here are Crum's stats from last year:

    259-422-7 (61.4%), 3,641 yards, 38 TD, 160.2 rating

    Compared with those of Fields:

    238-354-3 (67.2%), 3,273 yards, 41 TDs, 181.4 rating

    So, let's see: Crum's completion rate is nearly 6% lower, a TD/INT ratio that is well over twice as bad, and a passer rating over 21 points lower, all against far weaker opponents than Fields faced, yet has the exact same grade. Yeah, that makes fucking sense.

    By the way, there are seven returning QBs that had higher passer ratings than he did last year. In order, highest first:

    Fields (tOSU)
    Morgan (Minn)
    Hatcher (Ark St)
    Slovis (So Cal)
    Lawrence (Clem)
    White (Memphis)
    Howell (UNC)

    Borrow, Hurts, and Huntley (Utah) also had higher ratings, but they were all seniors and declared for the NFL draft.

    Justin Fields (JR): Despite seemingly outsized expectations following him to Columbus, Fields exceeded what almost anybody thought would happen by throwing for 3,273 yards, 41 touchdowns and three interceptions while completing 67.2 percent of his passes and rushing for 484 yards and 10 touchdowns. He deservedly became a Heisman Trophy finalist, the Big Ten's Offensive Player of the Year and a second-team All-American. He'll enter the 2020 season as a Heisman frontrunner.
