Strengths Weaknesses

He has above average athleticism for his size with excellent coordination and lower body flexibility to be quick off the ball and appear comfortable in space. Fields needs to develop his technique and strength and do a better job converting speed to power, but has the workable body type to continue and add muscle to his frame.

His ball instincts are a tick late and on tape, but he beats blocks with his natural athleticism as the game comes easy to him. Fields' development in 2014 is crucial to his NFL future, already showing high first round potential as an impact pass rusher.

--Dane Brugler (6/10/14)

Player Overview

Fields chose TCU over Oklahoma, Michigan, Tennessee and Texas A&M coming out of Fort Worth, Texas.

A player with the potential to be the top NFL prospect out of TCU since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2001, Fields burst onto the college scene as a true freshman two seasons ago, leading the team with 18.5 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. He earned Conference Freshman of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year honors, but was suspended for the first two games of 2013 (unspecified violation of team rules) and saw limited action before a foot injury ended his season, earning a medical redshirt last year.

Fields returns healthy and in the good graces of the coaching staff in 2014, but can he live up to the hype that was created after his highly impressive freshman season?
