SEE IT: Mock designs of QB Justin Fields in a Washington uniform originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

If there's one thing that's become true based on how the Washington Football Team has performed over the last several seasons, it's that it's never too early for quarterback photoshop season.

As the organization tries to find the right man under center for the rest of 2020, many have begun wondering what comes in 2021 and beyond. There's been no shortage of ideas as to which outside quarterback could find their way to Washington during the offseason and mock pictures to go with it. 

In terms of the NFL Draft, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is the belle of the ball. Yet, a bottom-heavy league may prevent Washington from looking in his direction. Still, the class features multiple other talented passers.

That includes Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields, who has landed with Washington in numerous mock drafts. Of course, there's now photoshops of him in the Burgundy and Gold to go along with it, courtesy of DC Sports Experience.

Fields is currently in his second year as a starter at Ohio State after transferring from Georgia. Following an incredible 2019 campaign in which the dual-threat quarterback threw for 3273 yards and 41 touchdowns while rushing for 484 yards and 10 touchdowns, he's picked up right where he left off early in his 2020 campaign. Through three games Fields has totaled 13 scores and has yet to throw an interception.

A rather polished passer already with the ability to stretch the field and move around outside the pocket, Fields' versatility could be a welcome addition to Washington's offense.

It would, however, mean that Washington would be selecting a quarterback from Ohio State in the first round for the second time in three years. Though Ron Rivera believes that 2019 first round pick Dwayne Haskins still has time to grow and develop, his first year-and-a-half in the league isn't exactly a ringing endorsement for how a Buckeyes' performance translates to the NFL level.

Only time will tell if Fields or some other new quarterback ends up in Washington, but one thing will remain true: the photoshops aren't going anywhere.
