ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky is catching heat for what he reported during his appearance on the Pat McAfee show on Wednesday afternoon.

According to Orlovsky, Ohio State QB Justin Fields may fall in the draft because several teams are questioning his “work ethic” and his overall desire to play football.

“One, I have heard that he is a last-guy-in, first-guy-out type of quarterback. Like, not the maniacal work ethic. I’ve even heard it compared to Justin Herbert, where it was like, dude, when Justin Herbert showed up, he was like a psychopath when it came to working and get ready for the draft. Or even at school, like, “Give me more, I want to work non-stop.” And I’ve heard that there are issues with Justin Fields’ work ethic.

The second thing is … Where is his desire to go be a great quarterback? I think that there’s a desire to be a big-time athlete, from what is expressed to me, but where is his desire to be a great quarterback? And to be great, you gotta be willing to find the things that you are not good at and just freaking grind on them.”

Fans and media alike were not happy with Orlovsky regurgitating what they felt was racially biased commentary from anonymous NFL scouts.

Orlovsky tried to defend himself from the criticism he received from social media.
