Justin Fields makes history in 40-yard dash at Ohio State’s Pro Day

Sports

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Former Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields made history at Ohio State’s Pro Day on Tuesday. Fields ran the 40-yard dash in 4.44 seconds, the second-fastest time for a soon-to-be first round quarterback since 2006. Only Robert Griffin III ran it faster with a time of 4.41.

Fields showed he can do more than run fast by making some jaw-dropping throws at Pro Day as well.

Fields is hoping to be selected in the top five of the NFL Draft, which starts April 29. The top four teams in the NFL Draft are all projected to take a QB, including Urban Meyer and the Jacksonville Jaguars who will undoubtedly take Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence with the No. 1 overall pick.

The New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons round out the top four, respectively. All three teams are in the market for a quarterback, especially the 49ers who traded up with the Miami Dolphins to snag the third pick.

First Round Quarterbacks

  • Trevor Lawrence, Clemson
  • Justin Fields, Ohio State
  • Zach Wilson, BYU
  • Trey Lance, North Dakota State
  • Mac Jones, Alabama

The Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos and New England Patriots will also be in the market for a quarterback with the Panthers picking 8th, Broncos picking 9th and Patriots picking 15th.
