8. Chicago Bears’ best replacements for Mitchell Trubisky: Kyle Trask

Oh boy, another highly-touted quarterback out of Florida. Here comes Kyle Trask amidst an eye-popping, Heisman-caliber season and still, Bears fans have to be a little uneasy about the thought of him in Chicago.

After all, the last big quarterback to come out of Florida and make his way to the Bears gave fans nightmares with the way he handled the football.

To be fair, Trask has had a stellar season and deserves all of the Heisman love he receives. No matter what your opinion is on him, the 4,125 passing yards and 43 touchdowns is flat-out impressive. Oh, and just five interceptions — that’s not too shabby in terms of touchdown-to-interception ratio.

The one issue with Trask is that he will probably continue to rise up draft boards, and truthfully, he shouldn’t be higher than a second-round pick. His numbers are impressive, but there are still flaws in his game.

Seeing Trask lock onto one receiver is a scary sight for Bears fans, even though a lot of those times his receiver makes the grab. Progressions tend to be something Trask doesn’t necessarily use, because he’s already made his mind up that his first read is getting the football.

When he’s forced to extend the play and get the ball to a second, third or fourth option, there have been some bad throws from Trask. Call it nitpicking an otherwise incredible season, but Trask should worry fans just a bit.
