Chicago Bears only player to make the Rookie Premiere class is Justin Fields

When looking at the players who were selected and added to this list, Justin Fields has to be the top one from the NFC North. Playing quarterback obviously helps as it is the most sought-after position in the NFL. Now couple that with being the new quarterback of the most historic franchise in the NFL — the Chicago Bears.

A franchise still begging and pleading for a miracle to take over the cursed quarterback position. This is why Fields has three of the top five selling jerseys right now. Talk about marketability. Fields might not be super flashy or joke around as much during his press conferences, but you can sense the fierce competitiveness inside of him when he speaks.

I am a little surprised Teven Jenkins did not make the list. I easily see him as a marketing darling. His awesome goggles for glasses and the way he delivers during his press conferences make him easily marketable. Nevertheless, Jenkins did not make the cut. It could be that he came from a lesser college in Oklahoma St. Not that the OSU Cowboys are a slouch program, they just aren’t Alabama or Clemson.

Let’s hope that both Justin Fields and Teven Jenkins prove worthy and we see both as anchors to an elite offense of the future.
