Justin Fields turned heads Tuesday with an impressive performance at the Ohio State Buckeyes' pro day.

With every NFL team except the Los Angeles Rams reportedly in attendance, the 6-foot-3, 228-pound quarterback showed off his speed with a 4.44 40-yard dash time.

All signs point to him being drafted with one of the first few selections, which means the Patriots would have to trade up to acquire him. They'd be remiss to not at least consider that option after witnessing that performance.

The Patriots currently hold the 15th overall pick in the draft, which is set to begin April 29.
