Bears Trade up one spot to take Mr. Biscuit, yes that is his nickname, Mitch Trubisky
The Chicago Bears gives up a third and a fourth round pick to move up one spot to draft Mitch Trubisky as their new redshirt franchise quarterback
Just like everyone else in this world besides Mulley of the 670 the score I was very puzzled with this pick of Mitch Trubisky. Not so much of the actual guy they picked, the Chicago Bears really needed to get a long-term QB and I would have been fine if they picked him at three, but they traded up to get the pick. They only real reason this made sense is if there was a bidding war and the Bears were trying to win. The biggest winner of the draft and we can call it now, John Lynch. If all he had to do was agree to this deal and still get all the players he wanted we can put all the questions to bed of him being a good GM. Hell of a splash for your first draft.
The move just doesn’t make sense to me and I think that it’s been years and years of terrible drafts by the Bears that make people think this way. The comeback from the score is that they have taken crappy picks in the third and fourth rounds anyway so why not trade it away to get their franchise quarterback. You can find your reason in any good team in the NFL. All of the best teams in the league stack picks and hit on players. Is that too much to ask of a professional with a damn scouting department. That’s how it’s done and if the Bears want to get good they need to fill all the holes they have on this crappy roster.
Now I’ve already written plenty of stuff about Mitch Trubisky. The main point I will make with him is that I don’t like the history of underclassmen going to the draft. There has only been about four that have worked out in the last ten years. Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco, Andrew Luck, and Cam Newton were the only QB that have really worked out. They were all heavily pedigreed quarterbacks coming out of college. They all had great success in college. Not a 13 game sample size with losses to Duke and NC state.
