Chicago Bears Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky

The Chicago Bears have had arguably the best offseason in the NFL. Starting with the signing of new head coach Matt Nagy, who was the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs under Andy Reid last season. An offense that gave former Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith the best season of his career.

Chicago has brought in quarterback friendly coaches this offseason to help Trubisky in this new offensive system. The second-year quarterback was working with next to zero receiving talent last season but has been given wide receivers like Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller, and tight end Trey Burton this offseason. Chicago has done a great job at surrounding him with talent and giving him more opportunities for success in the upcoming season.

With a strong offensive line and running game, Trubisky could be on the verge of a breakout season. Last season we saw Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz and Los Angeles Rams, quarterback Jared Goff surprise the league with breakout seasons. Both quarterbacks had disappointing rookie seasons, or at least, not the exciting ones fans hope for.

All of the tools are in place for Trubisky to have a successful season in 2018 and with his athletic ability to move outside of the pocket, he could be dangerous for defenses. If you draft Trubisky, I would keep him in the late rounds and use him as a rotational piece. I wouldn’t have him as my starting quarterback every week, but someone to grab in the very late rounds who could pay off.
