Mitchell Trubisky was the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears, and in Part 2 of a 32-part series, a look at his projections as a rookie.

The Chicago Bears traded up to the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft to draft their “Quarterback of the Future” in Mitchell Trubisky.Kevin White Jersey In doing so, the Bears sent the San Francisco 49ers their third overall pick, as well as two third round picks and fourth round pick. The Bears mortgaged their future on jumping one pick in order to get their guy.

But will the Bears even know if the former North Carolina Tar Heel is good enough to be their guy in 2017?

I’m not banking on it. The Bears signed former Tampa Bay Buccaneers backup quarterback Mike Glennon to a three-year, $45 million contract in free agency. Although he isn’t the long-term option at quarterback with Trubisky in the building, he will be the bridge quarterback in 2017,Jordan Howard Jersey limiting Trubisky’s snap count.

However, considering Glennon is guaranteed $18.Alshon Jeffery Jersey5 million that is all due in 2017 (per Spotrac.com), I can’t imagine a scenario where Glennon doesn’t get the majority of starting snaps this year while Trubisky sits and “learns the game”.
