This comes as a shock to just about everyone.
Prior to the draft, the Bears had met with the likes of DeShone Kizer and Deshaun Watson, but were not connected with many interactions with Trubisky. Instead the Bears traded spots with the San Francisco 49ers and also sent them their third-round pick (67th overall), a fourth-round pick (111th overall) and a 2018 third-round selection in order to select Trubisky.
Bears general manager Ryan Pace announced earlier in the offseason that Glennon is the team's unquestioned starter, but Glennon's long-term future in Chicago now looks bleak.
Trubisky has been considered the top quarterback in the draft and was reportedly coveted by the Cleveland Browns, the most quarterback-hungry team in the league.

He said that arm shipments from Russian Federation to the Taliban "would have to be dealt with as a violation of worldwide law". However, Mattis can't meet with his Afghan counterpart, or the head of the Afghan military, as those guys quit Monday.
Trubisky started just 13 games in college, spending two seasons on the bench behind two-year starter Marquise Williams. Granted, he had a monster season in 2016 throwing for over 3,700 yards and 30 touchdowns, while only throwing six interceptions. When he does see the field, Trubisky's standout rushing skills could give him a decent floor even as he develops as a passer. Trubisky would immediately compete with Mike Glennon for the starting job in Chicago. "The (Bears) found something they loved with him", said Jeff Cassella, the athletic director at Mentor High School, "he's going to be the face of that franchise for years", he added.
This was the biggest draft of Pace's tenure as Bears GM and he wasn't afraid to make a splash.
Trubisky had one of the best seasons of any quarterback in Carolina history as a redshirt junior last season.
