After a lot of prayer and thought, I have decided to forgo my senior year and enter the NFL draft. This has been the most difficult decision I’ve ever had to make. But no matter what happens next, I know I’ll never experience something as special as being a Tar Heel,” Trubisky wrote.

This year’s class of quarterbacks is underwhelming, but Trubisky seems to be universally considered as the top signal caller in the crop. Reportedly, he is the only QB that is a first-round lock whereas others like Clemson’s Deshaun Watson and Notre Dame’s DeShone Kizer are marked for Day 2.

The Browns, who pick No. 1 overall, reportedly “love” the 22-year-old. The Jets, at No. 6, also like the UNC standout, but the 49ers and Bears hold picks in the top five and could target a quarterback.

    A shotgun QB. Got a lot to learn to play at the next level. I still feel he should have done another year in college.
    That said, I’m sure he go early in the draft, because he’s a QB.

    How can the browns pass on another big QB? Size and arm strength plus he’s an Ohio kid. They pass on him they r def the worst run franchise in football. U can’t win without a QB in this league. U can build around a QB with a complete rebuild. But u have nothing until u have that QB

  6. Watson and Kizer not going until the 2nd round? Have you guys been unconscious the last few years, QB stock invariably goes up during the offseason. I’m a Bills fan, and I can only hope Watson’s still available when they pick 10th. I think that all 3 of them will go in the top 10, in which case the Bills will have to settle for legacy Chad Kelly in the 2nd round.

      Says Day 2 – that’s could be anywhere from 2nd to 4th round.

    I can’t blame him for going after the money. I just hope the Bears don’t take him. The Bears need a QB.
