A pick we have been waiting for since the regular season ended has finally happened. After the NFL combine, pro day’s, and private workouts, it all led to this.
The Chicago Bears swapped picks with the San Francisco 49ers, moving up to the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. The Bears also dealt their 3rd and one of their 4th round picks in this years draft along with a 2018 3rd round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
And Ryan Pace pulled the trigger and his quarterback, drafting Trubisky from North Carolina. A real draft stunner, something no one saw coming. It was even yesterday that Trubisky told Brag Biggs from the Chicago Tribune that the Bears did not have a private meeting or workout with the Bears.
Trubisky, started 13 games in his college career, finished his college career with a 67.5 completion percentage, adding 40 TDs and only 10 INTs. While the numbers are there, only starting 13 games has been a red flag for a lot of teams. But if Bears GM Ryan Pace found his QB, he made sure he was going to get him.
The Bears next selection is in round 2, 36th overall.
