The Chicago Bears season has come to a close. The once Super Bowl hopefull team finished 8-8 this year with little to show for their struggles. As the 2020 NFL Draft approaches in April, here are some early names to consider on day three of the draft.

There is no question that Chicago Bears starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky struggled in his 2019 campaign. Was the regression a sophomore slump in Matt Nagy’s offense? Did his numbers have to do with a poor campaign by most of the offensive players on this team? Maybe we have seen enough of Trubisky over his three NFL seasons to know, he just does not have what it takes.

No matter what you think about Mitchell Trubisky and his future in blue and orange, the Chicago Bears would be negligible if they go into the 2020 NFL season with the likes of Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray slotted in behind Trubisky. Trubisky does not need draft competition in the form of a second-round draft pick. Taking Jake Fromm or Jalen Hurts in the second round might not be ideal, especially with the needs they have at offensive line and tight end.

All of this said that does not mean the team should ignore the position all together either. If the Bears do not add a quarterback with one of their second-round picks, I would expect that they add a developmental prospect on Day 3 of the NFL Draft. Maybe a little competition would do Trubisky some good. Not to mention, Ryan Pace has only drafted one quarterback after saying he would like to draft one every year.

A quick look back at what the Bears did in 2019 makes one question not only the quarterback but also Matt Nagy and his play calling. Hopefully, both of them take a hard, long look in the mirror and put their egos aside to improve this offense in 2020.
