The Bears' selection of Mitchell Trubisky with the second pick in the draft might explain why the Browns considered him so strongly at one. If the Browns knew the Bears were interested, they also knew they'd have to take him first to get him.

It's worth noting Dolphins QB and former No. 8 overall pick Ryan Tannehill was questioned a lot coming out of the 2012 draft for having just 19 college starts. New Bears QB and No. 2 overall pick Mitch Trubisky has only 13 college starts.

Mitchell Trubisky has all the tools to develop as as a No.1 QB in the NFL. Good size, arm strength and the movement skills to get outside of the pocket in the pros. Interesting move by the Bears to trade up here, but they now land a QB to truly develop with Mike Glennon expected to head into the season as the starter.

First stunner of the draft: Mitchell Trubisky to Chicago with the second overall pick. One league insider told me today: "He's a second-round pick at best that needs a lot of development."

The Bears gave up a lot to move up one spot, but I think it's a smart move to get QB Mitchell Trubisky, For any other position, I would've said this deal is crazy, but now the Bears can now let Trubisky develop properly (he has just 13 career starts) behind Mike Glennon, Chicago may have just landed its starting QB for the next decade.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bears just spent three 2017 picks and a 2018 pick on Mitchell Trubisky. Stating the obvious, they are convinced he's a franchise quarterback.

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

There was a lot of misinformation coming out of Cleveland in the past 24 hours, but all indications are the Browns will go with Myles Garrett No. 1 overall. The big thing to watch now is whether they can get QB Mitchell Trubisky too.
