We’re only a few days away from the 2017 NFL Draft in Philadelphia and rumors are still swirling as to how the first round is going to play out.
Two of the most talked about names in the draft, Myles Garrett and Mitch Trubisky, figure to go very high in the first round and NFL analyst Chris Trapasso reports that a source tells him that if the Cleveland Browns don’t take Trubisky at No. 1 overall, he’ll be gone by the No. 4 pick because the Chicago Bears will take him.
Here is the series of tweets Trapasso posted Sunday outlining the scenario:
The Bears taking Trubisky at No. 3 would be very interesting, as the team just brought in longtime Tampa Bay Buc Mike Glennon this offseason as their Jay Cutler Replacement.
Trubisky going in the top three makes a lot of sense, broadly, though, as quarterback-needy teams will take chances on guys like him early in the draft.
Trubisky threw for 3,748 yards and 30 touchdowns in 2016 for the North Carolina Tar Heels.
