3. Chicago Bears’ worst replacements for Mitchell Trubisky: Kyle Trask

All season long, the talk about Kyle Trask among many analysts and fans has been whether or not Kyle Trask can elevate himself into the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Trask’s final college season was incredible in terms of his numbers, throwing for 4,283 yards and 43 touchdowns, to just eight picks.

No matter the hype, Trask should not be considered to replace Trubisky, especially after his bowl performance against the Oklahoma Sooners. That game, we saw the real Trask shine through — something that’s been dying to come out all year, that simply hasn’t. In just the first quarter alone, Trask tossed three interceptions, including one that went back the other way for a defensive score.

Trask has made a ton of first-read throws throughout this year, and luckily for him, many times his guys have been open. Either that or they’ve made some fantastic catches. But, the issue is, he’s mostly a first-read quarterback.

Not only that, but his throws are wildly inconsistent. Quite frankly, when I look at Trask, I see the second coming of a less-mobile Trubisky.

If you’re wanting to draft a quarterback who has similar tendencies as Trubisky in terms of going through his progressions, who also offers far less mobility, that’s going to end in disaster. Skip Trask and go onto the next option.
