The Chicago Bears' move to surrender three picks in trading up from No. 3 to No. 2 in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft was so stunning that even the player they ultimately drafted with the selection was caught by surprise. "The commissioner went to the stand and he said my name and I couldn't believe it," new Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky said on a conference call with Bears reporters Thursday, per NFL.com. Trubisky said he had almost no contact with the Bears during the predraft process, other than a short meeting at the NFL combine. The Bears didn't even reach out afterwards, Trubisky said, per the Chicago Tribune, which noted that the team did much more predraft work with Patrick Mahomes (who went No. 10 to Kansas City after the Chiefs traded up from No. 27 ), Deshaun Watson (who went No. 12 to Houston after the Texans traded up from No. 25 ), and DeShone Kizer (not picked in first round). Despite the fact that they surrendered a whole bunch of draft value to move up and select Trubisky, the Bears have been insisting ever since the pick that Mike Glennon -- who they signed to a three-year, $45 million contract ($18.5 million guaranteed) earlier this offseason -- is their starting quarterback heading into the 2017 season.
