Mike Glennon thinks No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky is doing a "great job" picking up the offense.
"He works really hard at it. He asks questions," Glennon said. "He's done a really good job of learning the offense, understanding what we're trying to accomplish, and I think he does a great job picking that up for being a rookie." Glennon is the heavy favorite to start Week 1, but he is simply keeping the seat warm for Trubisky, who is likely to make rookie starts. Jun 15 - 11:16 AM

ESPN Chicago considers Mark Sanchez the "favorite" to open the season as the Bears' No. 2 quarterback.

We do not. With Sanchez sidelined by a knee injury, No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky has been operating as the second-team quarterback. It's extremely hard to believe that will not be the case come Week 1. No matter their readiness, teams have a difficult bordering on impossible time of keeping early-round quarterbacks buried on the depth chart. Trubisky should make 2017 starts.
Jun 6 - 4:41 PM

Speaking at his introductory press conference on Friday, Mitchell Trubisky acknowledged that Mike Glennon is still the Bears' starting quarterback.

"Mike is the starting quarterback and I’m very excited to learn from him and the rest of the veterans on the team and I can’t wait to help the Bears win," said Trubisky. The Bears stunned the football world by taking Trubisky second overall after trading four picks to the Niners to move up one spot. Chicago would only be on the hook for $2.5 million if they cut Glennon next offseason, so the plan could be for Trubisky to sit for a year before taking the reigns in 2018. Trubisky started just 13 games during his career at North Carolina.
Apr 28 - 4:21 PM

Bears traded up with the 49ers to select North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Stunning. Owners of the No. 3 pick, Chicago surrendered this year's Nos. 3, 67 and 111 selections and a 2018 third-rounder to move up one spot. It means they faced intense competition. Trubisky (6’2/222) sat behind 2016 Packers camp arm Marquise Williams his first two seasons at UNC before taking the starting reigns as a redshirt junior last season and leading the Tar Heels to an 8-5 mark with school records in passing yards (3,748) and touchdowns (30). A plus athlete with 4.67 speed, Trubisky added five rushing TDs and is a legitimate scrambling threat. On tape, Trubisky impresses as a tough competitor with a quick release, but he showed a tendency to get squeamish when pressured and made only 13 college starts. The small sample makes him a frightening prospect. Nevertheless, Trubisky looks the part of a potential mid-range NFL starter with Ryan Tannehill-level tools. He'll compete with Mike Glennon for the Bears' starting job.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reports the Browns have been "working the phones" trying to trade up from No. 12 overall to draft Mitchell Trubisky.

Cabot, via multiple league sources, reports the Browns will take Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick and then focus their attention on coming up from No. 12 to land Trubisky. It'll be easier said than done, but Cleveland has plenty of draft ammo to pull it off if they want. Cabot reports talks will get going if Trubisky falls into the pick Nos. 5-6 range of the first round. The 49ers, Bears, and even the Jaguars are options to take Trubisky at Nos. 2-4 when Cleveland passes at No. 1.
Apr 27 - 4:38 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky is "square in consideration" for the Browns with the No. 1 overall pick.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn had Trubisky at No. 1 in his mock, NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah wrote the uncertainty in this draft "starts at pick one," and Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports two teams looking at quarterbacks believe Cleveland will either take Trubisky at No. 1 or trade up to grab him with the No. 2 or 3 picks. At this point, there is enough smoke to assume Cleveland really is considering Trubisky with the first pick regardless of if that is a smart move or not. If Trubisky does come off the board first, the 49ers will field an avalanche of calls from teams looking to move up to land Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett.

UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky is the No. 1 overall pick in Bob McGinn's final mock draft.

McGinn is longtime NFL reporter for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel who annually produces one of the most accurate mock drafts, as recorded by The Huddle Report. McGinn and Mike Mayock both have top-six mock scores over the past half decade among over 100 entrants. Both McGinn and Mayock have Trubisky landing with the Browns, although McGinn has Trubisky going No. 1 overall, and Myles Garrett going No. 2 to the 49ers. Mayock has the Browns taking Garrett at No. 1 and trading up for Trubisky at No. 5. Mock drafts are a lot of fun, yet incredibly unreliable. We'll find out what happens in real life tonight.
Apr 27 - 2:00 AM

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports the Browns have talked with three teams picking in the top eight about a trade up from No. 12.

Likely to select Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall, the Browns might have to move up from No. 12 for their latest "quarterback solution." The Browns have been linked to UNC's Mitchell Trubisky for months, but his stock is unclear. He could go anywhere from No. 2 to No. 12. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported as recently as three days ago that the Browns were still seriously considering Trubisky at No. 1, but it's ultimately unlikely.
Apr 25 - 3:17 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the 49ers are "strongly considering" taking a quarterback at No. 2 overall.

Evaluators seem split on who the actual top quarterback in this class is, but "those who know" coach Kyle Shanahan believe UNC's Mitchell Trubisky "would best fit" Shanahan's offense. The 49ers have also been mentioned as a team looking to trade down, so it's impossible to know for sure what these teams are thinking. After (we assume) Myles Garrett goes No. 1, the first round is up in the air.

Apr 24 - 9:42 AM

According to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the 49ers (No. 2), Titans (No. 5), Jets (No. 6) and Bills (No. 10) have all made calls about moving down in the first round.

Meanwhile the Browns, who can't seem to choose between Myles Garrett and Mitchell Trubisky, are looking to trade up from No. 12. The Browns can potentially get both players by moving up, though they'd have to come up with a pretty enticing trade package to accomplish that. In a draft with few sure things, we're sure to see a few trades go down before Thursday.
Apr 23 - 11:00 AM

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky is still "under serious consideration" by the Browns for the first overall pick in next week's draft.

There's little question that Myles Garrett is the most talented player in this year's draft, but the Browns need to weigh that against their need for a franchise quarterback. If the Browns pass on Trubisky with the first pick, it's unlikely he'd be available when they pick again at No. 12. The front office reportedly favors taking Trubisky first overall while the coaching staff is dead-set on Garrett. It will be fascinating to see this tug of war play out over the next five days.
Apr 22 - 9:43 AM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians raised concerns about UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky's level of experience.

All of Trubisky's 13 college starts came last season. "The growth potential is obviously there," Arians said. "The question is why wasn't all that talent starting for the last three years?" It is a question quarterback-needy teams in the top 10 certainly have to ponder, but Trubisky's lack of experience is a minor red flag compared to the warts on other top prospects. He is fully expected to be the first quarterback selected next week. While Trubisky is highly unlikely to be available to the Cardinals when they pick at No. 13, it will not be surprising if they grab a quarterback early.

Apr 20 - 9:35 AM

Mary Kay Kabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Browns are open to trading up from No. 12 overall.

The Browns have been split on whether to take Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett or North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 1 pick. If the Browns are able to trade up from No. 12, they might be able to land both. "We don't want to force things just to have things happen," said President of Football Operations Sashi Brown. "But we are going to stay aggressive at quarterback as we will all positions." The Jets have already contacted the Browns about moving down from No. 6 while the Titans are also open for business at No. 5.
Apr 19 - 6:58 PM

North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky is visiting the Jets Thursday.

The Jets also sent a large contingent to his Pro Day and hosted a private workout with Trubisky. ESPN's Rich Cimini has reported they are "very intrigued." The top quarterback available, landing Trubisky will cost the Jets the No. 6 overall pick at least. It is a steep price after they wasted a second-round pick on Christian Hackenberg last year, but no price is too high if they think Trubisky can be the long-term answer. New York has also shown interest in Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes, Clemson's Deshaun Watson, and Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer believes the Browns have North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky atop their quarterback board.

The Browns are widely expected to take Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall, so the question becomes if they'll pull the trigger on Trubisky if he's available at No. 12. There's been little talk of a trade up, but that's the sort of development that usually emerges last minute. Cleveland's biggest competition for Trubisky could be the Jets at No. 6.
