Chicago Bears trade up to take QB Mitchell Trubisky with No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft

The Chicago Bears traded up one spot to take North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubiskywith the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft on Thursday night.

The San Francisco 49ersreceived the No. 3 pick, which they used to selected Stanford defensive end Solomon Thomas, a third-rounder (No. 67), a fourth-rounder (No. 111) and a 2018 third-rounder.

It was an expected move by the Niners but a stunner by the Bears, who signed QB Mike Glennon to a three-year, $45 million contract earlier this offseason. Now it appears he'll have a quarterback competition with Trubisky, who passed for 4,762 yards, 41 touchdowns and 11 interceptions at UNC.

The Bears were in need of a starting quarterback after parting ways with their top four from last season (Jay Cutler, Brian Hoyer, Matt Barkley, David Fales).
