Chicago Bears make another trade, draft TE Shaheen

Chicago Bears make another trade, draft TE Shaheen

Sure, Watson could have been gone by the time the Texans picked at No. 25, but the team gave up picks to take him.

"The commissioner went to the stand and he said my name and I couldn't believe it", Trubisky said on a conference call with Bears reporters Thursday.

In a draft considered deep in defensive talent, seven of the first 10 players taken were on the offensive side. Pace decided he couldn't pass up the chance.

Pace traded four draft picks, including three 2017 picks, to select University of North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky at No. 2 overall.

Maybe Pace simply forgot to mention Fox. For a franchise whose most-accomplished quarterback ever is either Sid Luckman - whose career began during the FDR administration - or Jay Cutler, the threat of a blue-chipper is a welcome change. Lynch confirmed the 49ers had other offers. He missed his rookie season because of a stress fracture in his left shin and was limited to four games previous year because of a fractured left fibula.

Now, he could be a steal for a team willing to wait for him to recover. "I wouldn't, " Mayock said on a conference call Friday. I just don't think Bill Belichick wants to go through a season with Jacoby Brissett as Tom Brady's backup. "We prepare a lot.

Said Lynch: "I always find it really cool that Bill Walsh charged Paraag at one point with coming up with our own trade chart and so he did that". "I was talking to Jabrill Peppers at the Combine, and me and him have a little chemistry going on because I like the way he plays, and he's seen me play so we were just chopping it up and complimenting each other".

Pace, coach John Fox and several assistants also had a private workout with him in North Carolina last month. The only pick that originally belonged to them was the No. 147 pick they made in the fifth round. They just went and signed Mike Glennon, so this seems to be a move where Trubisky would to grow and learn for a couple of years. In his only season as the Tar Heels' starter, Trubisky set program records with 3,748 yards passing and 30 touchdowns, as well as for completions (304), attempts (447) and total offense (4,056). He rushed for 308 yards and five touchdowns.

Even so, it was a surprising move for the Bears. They knew that Cleveland and Arizona were both lurking at picks 12 and 13 and were looking for a QB.

"We did individual drills, then I threw routes to my receivers that were out there", Trubisky said. Years of shoddy drafting combined with a long list of injuries exposed a glaring lack of depth. "He'll work extremely hard in Chicago to become the best he can be". It's entirely possible that he will become a very good National Football League quarterback.
