Three college quarterbacks the Chicago Bears should look to draft early
By Joseph Herff
Kyle Trask, Florida
Kyle Trask, like Mac Jones, looks to be another quarterback the Bears don’t have to reach for in the first round but can be had in the second or possibly third round. The Florida quarterback stepped in last season for the injured Feleipe Franks and never gave the position back. Now the full-time starter, Trask has had an outstanding 2020 season.
This season, Trask has completed 68.3% of his passes for 1,341 yards, 18 touchdowns, and only two interceptions. He has only played four games this season due to COVID issues with the Florida football team. For comparison, he has two more passing touchdowns than Jones in two fewer games.
Many analysts are torn on how they feel about Trask. Trask has all the intangibles to be a great NFL quarterback with his size, arm strength, and decent athletic ability, but sometimes he makes choices that make people want to pull the hair out of their head.
He can throw the ball deep downfield well and he has pro-style offense experience that should translate well into the NFL. He is a perfect candidate to sit behind Foles for a season or two before eventually taking over.
