The 2021 NFL Draft was quite a franchise-altering one for multiple teams across the league, including the Chicago Bears.
In need of a quarterback after they decided to part ways with Mitchell Trubisky, the Bears opted to trade up to the No. 11 pick in the draft and select Fields. There was much speculation at the time that Fields would go on to be picked by the San Francisco 49ers with their No. 3 overall selection in the draft, but they instead elected to take a chance on Trey Lance.
Many quarterbacks across the league have taken it personally with their own draft snubs, but this is not the case for the former Ohio State standout.
