Mike Glennon still Bears' 2017 starting quarterback

Mike Glennon still Bears' 2017 starting quarterback

While recruiting in college is not an exact science, guys such as Henderson and Shaheen prove the NFL Draft is much more exact because there are a lot more eyes and research done.

"Chicago is getting a tremendous person who is obviously a talented quarterback". The Bears clearly lost their pick-value chart.

The Chicago Bears made a trade with the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night in order to move into the No. 2 pick and select quarterback Mitch Trubisky.

Cleveland was in position to draft Deshaun Watson if they wanted to with their second pick at 12, but they elected to trade back all the way to 25, when the Texans traded up to take the Clemson national champion. 3, 67, and 111.

In the third year of a rebuilding project, the Bears spent the second pick of the draft on a player who most likely will not play this season. That's got to hurt Jay knowing plenty of teams want a quarterback, but none of them want him.

"(Shaheen) is built like a Y-tight end - an in-line tight end - but he has the route quickness to play what we call the "F" role, so it's really interesting because a guy that big, he's a hard guy to defend in traffic because he's big, he can go attack the ball and he's got really good concentration so this is really interesting for us".

There is a knock on Trubisky - playing experience. It means a lot to start my National Football League career in Chicago.

"When Ryan Pace in Chicago went up into 2 and took the quarterback, that surprised a lot of people, I think".

It is hard to gameplan for a quarterback with so many unknowns. Trubisky might redshirt 2017 before taking over in 2018, but least until the Bears' season goes south, Glennon's job should be safe.

Clippers' Griffin to miss rest of playoffs with toe injury
If Los Angeles decides to pivot and rebuild, moving on from Griffin would be the most logical move. Though the Clippers previously survived without Griffin, this was a game in which they missed him.

"We were fortunate in that there were other teams that were interested", Lynch said.

"All they said was they're very excited and that they couldn't call me while I was back in the room because they were going nuts in the war-room", he said.

Do not expect a quarterback controversy with the Bears regarding Mitchell Trubisky and Mike Glennon. Pace had been involved while working with the New Orleans personnel department when former basketball player Jimmy Graham was drafted, and Graham had been a basketball player.

"I had one workout with them, and then, after that it was just pretty much silence", Trubisky said. They did this in spite of the fact nearly no one thought the 49ers were likely to draft Trubisky. That is except for the 49ers.

In their trade, the Bears dealt their second-rounder (No. 36 overall) and seventh-rounder (221) to the Cardinals in exchange for second-round (No. 45), fourth-round (No. 119) and sixth-round (No. 197) picks.

Starters are usually found in the third round.

But until Trubisky becomes a Chicago legend, let's focus on the Bears' odd move to trade up for a risky player they probably could have gotten anyway.

While tight end is a big need for the Bears, it appears Pace is sticking strong to his "best player available" approach.

Potential prey for Garrett, who had 32.5 career sacks for the Aggies, took center stage from there. The first offensive lineman was drafted 20th - the latest in the common draft era - when offensive tackle Garett Bolles was chosen by the Denver Broncos.
