We all know how bad the Chicago Bears messed up the 2017 NFL Draft but the Patrick Mahomes extension makes it look even worse.
The Chicago Bears really ruined their chances of winning a Super Bowl anytime soon during the 2017 NFL Draft. Ryan Pace made a bold decision to trade up from pick three to pick two to select Mitchell Trubisky from North Carolina. He hadn’t had that great of a resume there, but he had enough talent to be a first rounder according to a lot of scouts. However, it hasn’t worked out the way they planned. They built a championship-caliber defense but failed miserably at the most important position.
Obviously, Trubisky doesn’t look like he will ever help the Bears get over the hump. It is also sad because there were two quarterbacks taken after him that are on Hall of Fame trajectories. Deshaun Watson was the stud coming out of Clemson which seemed like the likely first quarterback off the board, but the real mistake was passing on Patrick Mahomes.
