Trade Details For Bears Move Up For QB Mitch Trubisky

Brad Biggs reports that the Bears have traded with the 49ers for the No. 2 overall pick for North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky,

Bears receive:

  • 2017 first-round pick (No. 2): Mitchell Trubisky

49ers receive:

  • 2017 first-round pick (No. 3): Solomon Thomas
  • 2017 third-round pick (No. 67):
  • 2017 fourth-round pick (No. 111): Traded to Seahawks
  • 2018 third-round pick

This was the surprise of round one, as many thought the Bears would address their defense, as opposed to moving up to get a quarterback prospect.

It’s worth mentioning that there was some buzz circulating that the Bears could be a team to watch in regards to a quarterback, but this was still a pretty surprising to move from Ryan Pace and company.

Chicago signed Mike Glennon to a three-year deal last month and while he figures to be the team’s starter in 2017, it’s clear that his long-term future with the Bears is in question.

During his three-year college career at North Carolina, Trubisky completed 67.5 percent of his passes for 4,762 passing yards, 41 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
