3. Anthony Gordon, Quarterback, Washington State

You know we love us some Anthony Gordon. Heck, one of our own, Patrick Sheldon, recently got a chance to talk with him one on one. We’ve been riding this bandwagon for months now, and Gordon did not disappoint on Saturday.

He helped lead the North to three touchdown drives in the third quarter, throwing two touchdown passes himself. On the first one, he hit a wide open Chase Claypool for a 2-yard score. Then, for his second, he tossed a beautiful ball to Liberty’s Antonio Gandy-Golden for a 5-yard touchdown.

Overall, Gordon finished 8-of-12 for 69 yards, two touchdowns and zero turnovers. At one point during a drive, Gordon completed three straight third down passes.

Look, I don’t have to tell you how most of us feel about Mitchell Trubisky, here. In fact, the majority of fans are far from sold on the kid; many want him replaced.

If the Bears wanted to trade back into the third round with one of their second-rounders, while accumulating another pick in the process, I think Gordon is the guy. He started as potentially a late-round flier just a few months back, and has since risen quickly.

Gordon’s quick release is something to marvel at, and his record-breaking 2019 season was full of some gorgeous throws. He has the arm strength. He has the footwork. He’s accurate. There isn’t a lot left to be desired. Gordon should be a Bear, no question.
