The first round of the draft had its share of surprises, but it was the Chicago Bears who really surprised everyone by trading their No. 3 overall pick to the San Francisco 49ers to obtain the No. 2 overall pick and draft North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. It’s an odd move when you consider that they only recently traded picks No. 67 and 111 in this year’s draft in addition to their third round pick next year to obtain quarterback Mike Glennon, whom they signed to a three-year $45M contract.
The Bears paid a high price to obtain a young quarterback who isn’t considered a “sure thing” to succeed in the NFL. Trubisky started just 13 games for North Carolina but he played enough to show that he is an accurate passer with a solid strong arm. North Carolina played a lot of shotgun formation on offense, so Trubisky will need time to learn and adjust to working from the line of scrimmage. He had a good showing at the Combine, though, exhibiting good footwork skills and mobility. He will likely spend most, if not all of the 2017 season on the sidelines being mentored by Glennon.
