Early 2021 NFL Mock Draft Features Some Franchise-Changing Prospects

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: QB Justin Fields (Georgia)

NFL Comparison: Aaron Rodgers

Despite the brilliance of Gardner Minshew’s mustache, he’s not the long term answer at quarterback in Jacksonville. In most years, Fields would be a lock for the No. 1 spot. Falling into Jacksonville’s lap would be a major boon for the franchise. As we’ve seen in recent years, dual-threat quarterbacks have had real success in the NFL. However, don’t let Fields’ elusiveness fool you — he’s a thrower of the football first and foremost. Additionally, he’s a natural leader, something that the Jaguars’ locker room could use. Fields would immediately start for a franchise in need of a major talent injection.
