Default NFL Draft- Bears

The 2017 NFL draft is tonight (Thurs. 4/27).
The Bears owned the #3 overall pick, but they surprised everyone by trading their #3 pick, along with their 3rd and 4th round picks, and another 3rd round pick in the 2018 draft just to move up 1 slot to the #2 spot. Apparently, the SF 49ers, who owned the #2 pick were approached by another team who wanted to trade up to get the player the Bears wanted, so the Bears payed a hefty ramson to move up.
So after the Bears gave up all those draft picks to move up 1 single slot, they picked North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Trubisky was considered the most NFL-ready quarterback in the draft, but he was not expected to get drafted this high.

Incidentally, the #1 overall pick by the Cleveland Browns was Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M, as expected.
