Is there anyway to change which field is highlighted by default upon opening a new form?

Currently it's highlighting a placeholder for a field that doesn't need to be filled out until much later in the workflow on this document.

yep.

Each control has an advanced tab in properties where you can set the tab stop or create a keystroke.
by default they are all set to 0 which is the first stop.
If you want a control to never be in the rotation make it -1 which is probably what you want.
You can set all of your controls to be in a custom order and sequence.
