Bears selection of Trubisky at No. 2 a surprise ... even to Trubisky

After the Chicago Bears shocked the NFL by moving up one spot in the 2017 NFL Draft to take Mitchell Trubisky, he had his conference call with the media.

Pace said the strength of the draft was on defense, and plenty of observers would agree. "There's times when you've got to be aggressive". "If you have a conviction about a guy, you can't just sit on your hands".

"I just don't want to be average around here, I want to be great". With a team that has so many holes, it is smart the Browns would fortify other positions before selecting a quarterback.

"For sure, 100 percent on that", he said. But sometimes teams would be better off losing.

The 6-foot-2, 222-pound Trubisky had little contact with the Bears leading up to the draft.

The Bears dumped Cutler after eight seasons and signed Glennon, giving them some leeway to wait on a QB. "Glennon is our starting quarterback".

"There's no competition when Mitch gets here", Pace said. Either way, Trubisky said he's comfortable with whatever the Bears decide to do with him.

"I don't think that's true", Trubisky said. "The things that you can't measure are I think what's going to define me and help separate me in this league".

"I know he went to N.C. State, our rival school".

This reminds us a bit when the Browns traded with the Vikings to ensure they could draft Trent Richardson. "But I'm looking forward to working with Mike and the rest of my teammates in Chicago".

Despite starting only 13 games at North Carolina, Trubisky disagrees with skeptics who believe he didn't gain enough experience in college. I showed I'm continually progressing and really I'm only just scratching the surface from this year. According to the San Jose Mercury News, the 49ers were always planning to take former Stanford defensive end Soloman Thomas, because taking a relatively inexperienced quarterback with the no. 2 pick is too risky. Now Cutler is gone after one playoff season and a.500 career record with the Bears, and it's up to Pace's regime to pull Chicago out of a quagmire. Bears' general manager Ryan Pace and head coach John Fox called Trubisky after the selection was made. The Bears had done more pre-draft work with Deshaun Watson (sending a large group to his pro day), Patrick Mahomes (private workout and pre-draft visit) and DeShone Kizer (two pre-draft visits).

The selection was surprising and even Trubisky was surprised.

"I didn't see that coming at all", the former North Carolina quarterback said in a teleconference from Philadelphia shortly after joining running back Ken Willard in 1965, linebacker Lawrence Taylor in 1981 and defensive end Julius Peppers in 2002 as the earliest drafted Tar Heels ever. It seems possible, if not likely, that the 49ers tricked the Bears into trading up and still got the player they wanted. "It was an unreal moment, and I can't wait to get started".
