Bears were bidding against themselves in National Football League draft trade with 49ers

That couldn't have been more wrong.

Cleveland ultimately made a decision to select defensive end Myles Garrett with their first pick. Bears guard Kyle Long said on Saturday's he's "already bros" with his new QB. He insisted he couldn't afford to wait. Lynch confirmed the 49ers had other offers.

"If we want to be great, you just can't sit on your hands", Pace said. The Bears gave up that staggering amount for one Mitchell Trubisky, the UNC quarterback who-despite his admittedly Chicago-y surname-remains a deeply unknown and unproven quantity for any club, the Bears included.

"Jeff Shiver, our area scout, was on him pretty early in the process in the fall and he was just kind of pounding the table and at first we were like, 'Man, this is Ashland". Head coach John Fox was not consulted until merely hours before the draft about the Bears' decision to trade up to draft Trubisky at No. 2. The Bears' assumed quarterback of the future got the franchise treatment, but he likely won't be in the limelight again until he actually starts, which could be a while.

Although Trubisky left North Carolina as the most accurate passer in Tar Heels history, he only started 13 games while in college.

As a follow-up to the 2015 season, Shaheen hauled in 57 passes for 867 yards and 16 touchdowns last fall. Or, they have huge a huge need at both the cornerback and safety position.

"We had a lot of scenarios, but we did not have any scenarios like what's happened here", the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations said.

The Bucks increased their halftime lead to an astonishing 32 points after the third quarter, and ended up winning the game by 27. Milwaukee now holds a 2-1 lead in the series and the Bucks have covered the spread in four straight meetings with the Raptors .

While Garrett was bothered by some injuries last season, at times he was unblockable in the tough SEC.

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

"They were at the top", said Trubisky about the Bears being the landing spot for his son. I mean I'm always going to compete and do my thing and push the guy in front of me and my teammates as well. Mike's the starter, I look forward to learning from him.

Trubisky ranks fifth at North Carolina in career passing touchdowns (41), sixth in yards passing (4,762) and seventh in total offense (5,201).

The third quarterback snared in the draft also came via a trade as the Houston Texans dealt with the Browns to jump 13 places and claim Clemson signal caller Deshaun Watson with the 12th pick.

Instead, general manager Ryan Pace made the move to get Trubisky while reaffirming he is all in on solidifying a traditionally weak spot for the Bears. I'm excited to learn behind Mike. However, this is just another part of his game that needs time to develop.

As for what he brings to the Bears besides flour tortillas and cilantro-lime rice, Shaheen is able to use his size to be a very good pass catcher.
