But lots of scouts are saying he graded out higher than any QB prospect the last 6 years. It is what it is.
    Higher than Andrew Luck?

    Now that the draft has concluded, some interesting information has come out in regards to new Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
    According to John Mullin of CSN Chicago, two AFC scouts told him they had the highest grade on Trubisky than any other quarterback in the last six years. That means they had Trubisky higher established quarterbacks such as Jameis Winston, Cam Newton, Russell Wilson and even Andrew Luck.


    One scout went even further with his assessment.
    "Trubisky is an almost perfect quarterback prospect,” he said. "The Bears should count their lucky stars he only started 13 games because if he was a two-year starter, he goes 1/1 [overall No. 1] without hesitation.”
    For a scout to say Trubisky was graded higher than Luck should come as a shocker. Luck was largely viewed as the top quarterback prospect entering the NFL Draft in decades.
    As the one scout points out, Trubisky having started just 13 games is likely what pushed some away from naming him a can't-miss prospect. He was limited in his starting experience but showed off great poise in the pocket, impressive accuracy and above average arm strength.

    You said "lots of scouts", but the article says only two. Either way, I guess we'll eventually find out if they're right or not

    We know that there isn't a strong correlation between college passing numbers and NFL success, but take out the horrific game in the hurricane and his passing numbers stand up well against any other college QB last year.

    Having said that, we know they didn't need to give away those picks to move up one slot.

    what would they have done with those picks anyways?

    You're never giving up too much for a QB. You need one to win. The dumb move was signing Glennon when apparnently all along the Bears were set on Trubisky. If Trubisky turns out to be a top 10 QB the Niners will look dumb for not taking him. Huge gamble, but for me, you're never over paying to draft a QB. The Chiefs gave up a lot for a kid who has huge potential but is a project. Trubisky was def the best QB in this weak class, and could prob start right away if he had too. I'm fine with the trade. If it doesn't work out it sets the Bears back even more. Scared money don't make no money.

    How is signing Glennon dumb? It's a one year guaranteed deal. It's smarter than HAVING to use Trubisky to start a year and rushing him into a starting role with 13 college games under his belt.

    I mean, they could have went the alternative route and signed just Mark Sanchez, all but guaranteeing that Trubisky is probably starting by week 3 if they get pressured by an angry fan base to win, or guaranteeing that the Bears go 1-15 if they are actually patient with Trubisky and start Sanchez all year... but i think they figured not being pressured by the fan base to start Trubisky and having a guy who is somewhat competent, at least enough to win 4-6 games is a better course of action.

    That said, I wouldn't have minded a 1-15 year. This roster blows. Needs a lot more talent and you may as well have a better draft pick when you are ready to win.

    With so many other holes the allocated too much money this year to a guy that has no future with the team. It's a small amount but they will have dead money next year with him if they cut which is stupid. Paying him 15 million when you could have paid a McCown or Fitzpatrick half of that, and upgraded elsewhere in Free Agency. If Glennon goes out there and tosses for 4500 yards and 30 TDs, then what? You gonna trade that for an unproven 2nd year QB? And what happens if Trubisky bombs after you traded Glennon? They have set themselves up for potential unnecessary headaches. It's unlikely Glennon lights the world on fire, but it's absolutely possible. Or if he's just somewhat competent and they finish 9-7. The Bears need high draft picks and an infusion of real talent before they waste Jordan Howard's best years.

    Paying a guy 15 million dollars for 1 year on a non competitive team beyond stupid.
