But what about the franchise quarterback the team has lacked for decades? While at this point grading a draft class mere hours after it's picked is extremely arbitrary, here's a breakdown of the class of 2017 and why things could begin to look up for the league's perennial cellar dwellers sooner or later.
From Bleacher Report: "As if the day wasnt bad enough, Seattle selecting Russell Wilson, a QB that doesnt fit their offense at all, was by far the worst move of the draft". In a best-case scenario, the Bears get two quality quarterbacks.
These rankings for every QB taken in the 2017 draft are based on the talent and abilities of the prospect, but also on the situation in which they are now dealt.
But which of them is set up for the most pro success?
General manager Chris Ballard has already done a nice job rebuilding the defense, and that should continue next spring with talented players such as Hurst.
Trubisky - whose nickname is "Mr. Biscuit" - had a breakout 2016 season after being a part-time backup in North Carolina for two years.
The Arizona Cardinals swapped second round picks with the Bears, and gave up their fourth and sixth round picks to draft Budda Baker 36 overall, the ideal home for the safety out of Washington. Of course, fans will also get a chance to see Mike Glennon as well. Despite a silly season where teams bend over backwards to lie and deceive, the Browns promised to keep the agreement they made after Mahomes was drafted 10th, according to Grossi.More news: ND's Kizer, Toledo native, drafted by Browns
Trubisky was the first quarterback taken off the board despite a grand total of 13 starts at the college level. Had the Bears not signed Glennon in free agency, the move for Trubisky can only be argued based on your opinion of the player, not the merit of taking a quarterback in that spot. So will third-round receiver Taywan Taylor, who profiles as a slot receiver but potentially a very good one.
The Brad Kaaya selection is an interesting one. I would not expect a mirror rookie performance from Dobbs, but that's mostly because Prescott is a rare talent and Dobbs would need Ben Roethlisberger to get seriously injured. That's not gonna disappoint any QB. "Right from the beginning when Ryan Pace and Chicago went up to 2 and took a quarterback, that surprised a lot of people, I think". Teams build from the offensive line out, and will have to wait until 2018 for a better wave of protectors. Time to figure out what I exactly did to make Ryan Pace hate me.
Below are 32 players who are worth tracking throughout next college football season.
The question: How did everybody miss so badly on their projections? Trubisky may not be ready to start from day one, he'll need time to grow and develop, a challenge that he's willing to take on before he becomes a starter. After they moved down one spot in the first round in exchange for Chicago's third- and fourth-rounders this year, as well as a third-rounder next year, San Francisco got back into the first round to steal LB Reuben Foster away from New Orleans, giving them two top-10 defensive talents in Round 1.
Sharpe also spoke about former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Flynn.
Wolf, who helped the Raiders win two Super Bowls and the Packers one after trading for Brett Favre, spoke about the Bears trade to the Chicago Sun-Times. Unfortunately, the offense looks bad outside of running back Jordan Howard and the interior of their offensive line. They turned in their card and ended up with the second best running back in this draft.
