QB prospects for the Chicago Bears

If you read part two, you are ready to see what quarterbacks I have been keeping an eye on this season that fit Matt Nagy and the Chicago Bears in the future. If you are reading this and Mitch Trubisky is back at quarterback, I would be just as confused as you. Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace have both publicly agreed that they want a quarterback who can quickly read the field and process coverages. That was what Ryan Pace said about Mitch Trubisky, which now seems like a fallacy.

I regret not writing about Joe Burrow during the college season because I feel like my eye for quarterback prospects is pretty good. Even though I discussed it numerous times with my draft team, it would not have made much difference because Burrow turned that season into the most remarkable college season ever by a college quarterback.

Let us see if I can project ahead of the end of the season once again this year. The quarterbacks that I will be talking about are currently not well known but might boost their draft stock quickly as the season goes on.

To save you time, if you do not want to read about them, I will be talking about Desmond Ridder from Cincinnati, Brock Purdy from Iowa State, KJ Costello from Mississippi State, and D’Eriq King from Miami. I wanted to add Kyle Trask from Florida to this list, but I think the Joe Burrow effect will boost him to a top 50 selection.

Kyle Trask should be a name many college followers should know. Sam Ehlinger is someone I have been following since his freshman year. I could write an entire article on him alone, so I’ll pass on that for now, but those two quarterbacks should also be watched.
