The Cleveland Browns went with conventional wisdom with regard to the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and took the perceived best overall player in Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett. Prior to the draft, there was a notion that Cleveland could become enamored with former North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky but that went out the window with haste as Garrett took “the call” as the top guy.

However, the NFL world did not have to wait long for Trubisky to come off the board, as the Chicago Bears traded a king’s ransom to move up one spot to No. 2 overall in a deal with the San Francisco 49ers. Trubisky was the target. Because Chicago already has Mike Glennon on a rather enormous quarterback as the team’s starter, the decision to move “all in” on Trubisky was met with bewilderment from, well, almost everyone.
