With the 2nd Overall Pick in the 2017 NFL Draft...

The Chicago Bears Select...



#2...QB...Mitch Trubisky...North Carolina...

Scouting Report...

Analysis

Strengths

Adequate height with good muscular definition. Built to withstand physical challenges of the position. Calm field general. Very good pocket mobility. Can slide around circumference of the pocket without having to drop his eyes from their task. When he leaves the pocket, looks to challenge with his arm before defaulting to his feet. Always in ready-to-rip throwing posture. Delivery is crisp and efficient. Locates safeties and reads their intentions immediately after the snap. Quick through his progressions and will double back to targets if his protection allows him time. Pocket mechanics and throwing motion are solid. Tough and competitive. Shows courage and poise in the pocket. Throws passes from balanced platforms and rarely defaults to an off-balance throw unnecessarily. Has all the arm you need. NFL call sheets will be wide open with Trubisky at the helm. Can dial up deep field-side outs with accuracy. Ball comes humming out of his hand when he needs to spike his velocity. Arm talent to whip a catchable throw from difficult angles to targets outside the numbers. Makes the standard "pitch and catch" throws with consistent accuracy. Ball usually comes out on time. His 62.1 completion percentage on intermediate throws easily outpaces the top quarterbacks in this draft. Possesses get-away quickness to avoid sudden pressure from a-gap blitzers with the speed to damage the defensive cause once he leaves the pocket.

Weaknesses

Almost 98 percent of his dropbacks came from shotgun. Will have to learn NFL footwork from under center which could take time. Benefits from offense loaded with RPOs (run-pass option) that pull linebackers forward and open easier throwing windows. Played in space-based passing attack that didn't often ask him to throw to tight windows in traffic. Arm slot will drop way down causing batted balls at line of scrimmage. Too willing to float balls rather than air-mailing them out of bounds when he's making a bail-out throw against pressure. Needs better drive accuracy between the hashes. Has a tendency to leave throws in hip pocket of moving targets. Inconsistent deep ball touch. Has touchdown opportunities he babies and invites defenders time to recover. Not always pocket aware. Hyper-focuses on shifting parts down the field and can be late to feel pressure collapsing the edges.

I'm behind this pick. I wouldn't have moved up for him but he was my number one QB this year when all was said and done.

Terrible pick and a terrible trade. Hopefully this is a precursor to other moves.

I like Trubisky I really do...but not at #2 and not giving up a 3rd + 4th and a 3rd next year...we just gave up two opportunities to improve the team this year to have him sit for a year...

One things for sure...John Fox isn't running this show.

We've had plenty of crappy QB's, I wanted a good one. This isn't it.

SCORE is saying this could be a precursor to a trade later in this round... stay tuned.

So I'll start with the bad. 13 starts. There is a long history of the performance of 1 year wonder underclassmen. The magic number the was put forth by Bill Walsh was 19 starts. 19 starts is what it took to get an idea of what you are getting. That is my main concern with Trubisky. Would have loved Watson at #3 but I'm ecstatic that they made an impact move and when they made the trade all NFLN could talk about was Adams or Thomas. When I saw what they gave up, I knew it had to be for a QB.

The good. Has a nfl arm. Is athletic and accurate. Can make all the throws. Obviously he's competing with Glennon on day 1 but look for Glennon to get the early nod thru preseason since Fox will be making that decision.

Not terribly upset about taking a qb. Upset about giving up draft picks we need
