CHICAGO Teams

ESPN Stats and Information  

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.

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."

Rajon Rondo will not play in Game 6, and that is not good news for a Bulls team that has struggled without him on the court against the Celtics.
