Chiefs will work out QB Mitch Trubisky after North Carolina pro day

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs will work out QB Mitch Trubisky after the North Carolina pro day. It was reported that he had some contact with the Chiefs at the Combine earlier this month, too. The Chiefs are doing their work on the quarterbacks in this year’s draft.

This is a good recap of his pro day. Trubisky is one of the top four quarterbacks in the draft. I’ve seen projections that he goes in the top few picks and I’ve seen Greg Cosell say he is not a high level prospect. So, as usual, I have no idea. What concerns me the most is that he has just one year of starting at North Carolina. That doesn’t mean the Chiefs can’t draft him or he won’t be good but they need to do a lot of studying on him.

When will Trubisky be drafted? I have no idea. First round, probably. Mike Mayock has DeShone Kizer and Deshaun Watson ranked ahead of him.

Here’s a snippet from his NFL Draft profile:

Trubisky is a high-end quarterback prospect who possesses NFL size, a big arm and the ability to throw with accuracy from the pocket or on the move. Despite playing in a spread-based offense, he's a full-field reader who does a very good job of getting an early read on the safeties before crafting his course of action. Trubisky will have to become much more pocket aware and do a better job of recognizing and attacking blitzes to back NFL defensive coordinators off. He hasn't put all the pieces together yet, but the puzzle is all right in front. Trubisky projects as a good starting quarterback with a high floor and the potential to be great.
