That’s because, according to Trubisky, the Bears only worked him out once, and never communicated with him in the weeks leading up to the draft.
After leaving the stage, Trubisky was scratching his head (via CSN Chicago): The Bears’ decision raises a few questions, the biggest being: Why the hell did they give up so much (picks 3, 67, 111, and a 2018 third-rounder) to move up one spot, and why were they suddenly so eager to draft a guy they never seemed all that interested in before?
The answer to the first part of that question probably has a lot to do with the 49ers’ ability to convince the Bears that there was a big trade market for the No.
Nobody expected the 49ers to take Trubisky, and so the only way to explain away the Bears’ decision to give up so much to get him is if they were certain that a handful of other teams were clamoring to make the same trade.
The most generous way to read the Bears’ draft night is that they truly believe that Trubisky is a future stud and had always planned to do anything to get him.
