Chicago Bears draft quarterback Mitch Trubisky

Mitch was the second overall pick

On this fated day, the Chicago Bears drafted our beloved quarterback, Mitch Trubisky, as the second overall pick.

The Bears traded up from the third overall pick for Trubisky, who decided to forgo his senior year of eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft. The team traded their third overall pick this year as well as third and fourth round picks this year and a 2018 third round pick, in order to draft Trubisky.

Trubisky only started for the 2016 season after being the backup to Marquise Williams for the 2014 and 2015 seasons. At 6’2” and 225 pounds, he stands perfectly among NFL quarterbacks. He also stands among some Tar Heel greats.

Now, let’s see what you do with it, Mitch. Make your Tar Heel family proud in Chicago.
