Justin Fields has been turning heads at Bears training camp, including that of his star wide receiver Allen Robinson who had some high praise for the rookie.
The Bears made the biggest trade of the NFL draft when they moved up to the number 11 spot to pick the Ohio State Buckeye. Fields was nothing short of a superstar during his time in college, and many people had him pegged as the second best quarterback in the draft.
However, Fields would be the fourth of five quarterbacks taken in the first round, setting a chip on his shoulder from day one. Chicago was very happy to pick him up at that position, and now it’s on them to develop Fields to reach his full potential. The fans already love him in Chicago.

Allen Robinson Has Incredible Praise For Justin Fields
One of the biggest plus points of Justin Fields is his elite talent and athletic ability. However, he also has one of the best arms among the new draftees.
Fields was one of the most accurate college passers last year, and that’s a skill he’s hoping will translate to the NFL. One of the biggest keys to Fields’ development will be the supporting cast around him.
The Bears have done well to build up a strong supporting cast headlined by star receiver Allen Robinson who had another Pro Bowl caliber season last year with 102 catches for 1,250 yards despite some shoddy quarterback play.
Robinson is sure to become Fields’ number one target whenever he gets playing time, and he’ll be instrumental to making sure that the rookie excels the way the Bears hope he will. Robinson is already impressed with some of the throws Fields has been able to make.
Allen Robinson said of Justin Fields: “He’s able to make every throw on the field. … That’s something we see each and every day. It’s fun seeing him learning and getting better each and every day.”
