Beat me to it. Was just gonna post the same poll.
It's really hard to say.
Dalton was guaranteed the starting job by Pace, which is the main reason he took the job. Handing it to Fields may be a little disrespectful and could lead to drama in the locker room, which is the last thing this team needs.
Then again, it's not like we got Mond, Trask or Mills. Fields is one of the best QB prospects of this year's class. If he had been a late first round pick like Jordan Love or a 2nd round pick like the other three I just mentioned, then sure, let him sit on the bench and learn the system for a year and roll the dice on Dalton.
But is it really unreasonable to expect the 11th pick overall to be a day one starter? I'd say no.
IMO Fields is too talented to waste an entire year on the sideline, but I also don't wanna see him get hurt behind that OL that is far from being fixed.
I think I'll be able to give you an answer once the draft is over. It really depends on what positions we're gonna draft today and tomorrow, and how good the OL will look on paper post draft.
