At No. 36, the Bears have needs all across the board, but there are a handful of talented safeties and cornerbacks projected to go at the top of 2nd round that might interest the Bears.

Bears GM Ryan Pace says last night there are still other ways to improve the roster after sending multiple picks to 49ers to move up to 2 and take Mitchell Trubisky. One way is acquire more picks by perhaps trading down from No. 36 to recoup some losses from yesterday. The Bears currently do not have a 3rd round choice, but still have a 4th rounder on Saturday.

Is Friday the day the Browns, 49ers, Saints or Cardinals pick their QB of the future? DeShone Kizer, Joshua Dobbs, Nathan Peterman and Davis Webb lead the best signal-callers available headed into the second night of the NFL draft.

ESPN Stats and Information  

If DeShone Kizer comes off the board in the second round Friday night, he'd be the fifth Notre Dame QB to go in the first two rounds in the common draft era. But history isn't kind -- the previous four went a combined 35-85 as starters in the NFL.

It's been 20 hours since the Bears traded up to draft Mitchell Trubisky, but the 2nd overall pick still hasn't spoken to veteran QB Mike Glennon, who GM Ryan Pace confirmed last night remains Chicago's starting quarterback. "No, I haven't talked to Mike yet, but I'm very excited to work with him and the rest of the quarterbacks here," Trubisky said on Friday.

Trubisky: Can thrive under Chicago pressure

Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the Bears' No. 2 pick Thursday in the NFL draft, says he can use the pressure that will come with being a quarterback in Chicago to his advantage.

Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is proud of his 1997 Toyota Camry. In fact, Trubisky drove the car to meet with the Bears during his private workout/meeting with Chicago around his Pro Day. "It's a little beige color handed down from my grandmother," Trubisky said. "It's got 170,000 miles on it. It moves pretty well. Gets me from Point A to Point B."

Mitchell Trubisky was born in 1994, but he said on Friday that growing up his favorite player was Bears' legend Walter Payton, who retired in 1987. As a kid, Trubisky read a book about Payton in the school library and was hooked after that. Trubisky -- from Ohio -- also admitted to studying other quarterbacks, but smiled when asked if he studied any Browns quarterbacks. "I like to watch other QBs, but not necessarily Cleveland QBs," Trubisky said. Wonder why.

At his Foundation To Be Named Later charity event today, Theo Epstein laughed off a recent suggestion by political strategist David Axelrod that he could get into politics, calling such a thing "ridiculous." I think I need to go do something really ill-advised or commit a felony or something," Epstein said. "I can put a stop to it in a hurry."
