What if the Chicago Bears drafted Jamal Adams?
What if the Chicago Bears drafted Jamal Adams with their first round pick instead of Mitch Trubisky?
You can’t turn on a radio or television in Chicago and listen to any kind of sports conversation with out the idea surfacing about what if the Bears drafted Patrick Mahomes or Deshaun Watson instead of Mitch Trubisky.
It’s a brutal existence for Trubisky right now, but fans love to play the what if game (and the media for that matter), and Watson and Mahomes have both flashed some serious skills. Perhaps both quarterbacks turn out to be better than Trubisky, or perhaps Trubisky eventually surpasses them, but for the sake of this argument, that’s irrelevant.
This conversation is seemingly what the debate should be. This shouldn’t be about Trubisky or Mahomes because nobody thought that Patrick Mahomes should be selected in the top three. If you recall, the smart money was on the Bears selecting Jamal Adams.
Don’t you remember? He would be the leader of the defense, he could help elevate a good young unit into a great unit. He was the guy the Chicago Bears needed. So let’s play it out, shall we? Let’s say that the Bears took Jamal Adams instead of Mitch Trubisky and take a guess on how things would have played out.
