Draft prospects for the Chicago Bears to avoid: QB Kyle Trask, Florida

If ever there was a Mitchell Trubisky 2.0, Kyle Trask is it. That could be the end of the argument in not drafting him, but let’s get into specifics.

Trask had an unbelievable 2020 season, however a lot of his success came from having two incredibly talented targets. Kyle Pitts and Kadarius Toney made a lot of big, eye-popping plays which otherwise could have been incompletions (or worse) had it not been for their talent on the receiving end.

Pitts is a generational talent, and if you watch Trask’s film, you’ll see many plays where his eyes never left Pitts from the snap. Trask, like Trubisky, doesn’t go past his second read — like, ever.

It was either Pitts or Toney on the majority of his big plays; heck, even on many of the shorter throws, too.

The Bears cannot afford to invest a second-round pick on a quarterback that has trouble going through progressions and seeing the entire field. They have been down that road before, and it doesn’t work.

If the Bears we’re going off of numbers alone, like many Trask truthers do, then they’d be getting maybe the best quarterback in the draft. But, there’s a reason he’s clearly behind the top five passers in every single mock draft you see.

Must Read. Bears must look at these remaining free agents. light

Trask is not the answer, period. I don’t care if Andy Dalton is mentoring him. He could have Peyton Manning in his corner, and the Bears should still steer very clear from Trask — end of story.
