WVU’s Tony Fields is one of the most intriguing linebacker prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft. The former Arizona Wildcat has gained the attention of many throughout the country, including one of the best Chicago Bears of all-time.

Lance Briggs, a former linebacker and seven time pro bowl selection for the Bears, reached out to Fields on Twitter last night to hype him up as he goes into his professional career.

“(Tony Fields) is gonna make some real noise at the next level.”

This comes after the two were pictured working out together earlier that day.

Briggs, like Fields, is a former Arizona linebacker, and played his college ball in the early 2000s.

The Mountaineers landed themselves a huge talent in the transfer portal with Fields, and he will be hard to replace moving forward.
