He should be. Worlds better than Josh Dobbs...

I hope he goes undrafted so he can choose where he goes.

Ran the numbers on the trade up.

Value for moving up in the draft from 3 to pick 2:
3rd rounder
4th rounder
5th rounder

Bears didn't give up the 5th but did give up next years 3.

I think the 49ers got a bit more than they should have but from what I read it sounded like when a QB is involved the charts go out the window.

 Did Peterman play in the Senior game or the North-South game ?


 I know I saw him somewhere.

 We could have had Desmond King with our 4th round draft pick,but,Pace figures we needed another interior lineman,F---'in amazing. This draft is by far the worst I can remember. I'll change my mind if Trubisky becomes a hall of fame QB.How many nobodies can one person draft in one draft. That will be the question asked in the Guiness Book of Records relating to our draft.

True but it's clear nobody wanted Desmond King

I don't know why he drafted a guard but it could be Long is far from healthy.  He had serious ankle surgery and lost so much weight he didn't have the shoulder surgery.

Same here Joki. Sad draft from top to bottom. Worst I've seen in years. My mother could have drafted better from her casket.

dallas I get your sarcasm. I'm not downing the Trubisky pick cuz at least I can justify it. It's the rest of the draft which appears to be a waste of time. Small school players who do not necessarily represent our bigger needs. I hope to God Trubisky turns out to be a quality field general for years to come. I just think Pace traded away picks when we should have been stock piling them. Of course he most certainly would have wasted them. I'm almost of the mind to beg angelo to return.Geeez!

I think as Bears fans we've just gotten so jaded in the last ten years, as we descend into cleveland territory, that we kind of expect failure and instinctively crap over all the draft picks.  I remember the Whitehair and Floyd picks getting no love last year.  The picks I really liked last year were Jordan and Bullard and i went with the consensus from experts and posters here that floyd and whitehair were bad picks.  So i was at 25% in terms of which picks i liked.  In his first draft (lauded by the analysts), Pace had limited success and guys who have been hurt.  His draft last year was the best the Bears have managed in a long time.  Im more then willing to give this years draft a chance, especially since i have no real other choice. 

Dallasbear's Trubisky love does inspire confidence, as I think hes one of the more football savvy posters here.  I'm looking forward to the bears giving other teams matchup problems in the passing game if the TE develops and the rb's skills translate to the nfl.

I didn't hate the Floyd pick, I was just stunned and disappointed that we moved up and that it wasn't to take Tunsil.

As far as the Whitehair pick, I didn't see it as a great value pick, or a great need pick, but Pace obviously saw it as a BPA pick, and it has turned out nicely.

 If a poll was put up as to this being the best or worse BEARS draft ...


 I wonder how fans would vote ?

We won't know the answer to that for several years. 

If Tribusky is a top ten franchise type QB then it will be the best in a very, very long time.  If he is a bust it is going to be among the worst.

I would say right now the majority of Bears fans don't like the draft.

I am willing to take a wait and see approach.  Maybe Glennon plays well but not great and Trubisky can sit for a year and learn then take over the following year.  Then we could either trade Glennon or keep him as a back up.

Wouldn't it be nice to have two decent QB's?
